Novel Review: “If The Duke Demands” by Anna Harrington.


One again, I found myself swept away by the captivating work of Anna Harrington while I read her latest heartwarming historical romance novel.  In my humble opinion, Ms. Harrington is a truly a gifted wordsmith with a talent for weaving tales focused around the lives of relatable heroines and their leading men.  There is no doubt in my mind, that her name will be listed at the top of several best-seller lists for years to come.

“If The Duke Demands,” is the first novel in Ms. Harrington’s newest series, Capturing the Carlisles.  Sebastian Carlisle, Duke of Trent, was looking for a wife.  The most unlikely candidate, Miranda Hodgkins, just happened to steal his heart.  I hope the synopsis will entice you to delve into this wonderful novel.

A LESSON IN SEDUCTION . . . Miranda Hodgkins has only ever wanted one thing: to marry Robert Carlisle. And she simply can’t wait a moment longer. During the Carlisle family masquerade ball, Miranda boldly sneaks into his bedchamber with seduction on her mind. Soon she’s swept into rock-hard arms for the most breathtaking kiss of her life. But when the masks come off, she’s horrified to find herself face-to-face with Sebastian, the Duke of Trent-Robert’s formidable older brother. Shocked to find Miranda in his bed, Sebastian quickly offers her a deal to avoid scandal: He’ll help her win his brother’s heart if she’ll find him the perfect wife. But what begins as a simple negotiation soon spirals out of control. For the longer this reformed rake tries to make a match for Miranda, the more he wants to keep her all to himself.

 I consider myself extremely privileged to have been chosen to receive an advanced copy of this novel in exchange for my honest opinion on the story.  It is with pleasure that I recommend this novel be added to your must-red list.  There isn’t one thing I didn’t like about this novel.  The love story between Sebastian and Miranda was divine.  I spent hours engrossed in their world excited to witness their story unfold.  On Tuesday, February 28, 2017 you can treat yourself to this fabulous novel.  It will be available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iBooks, Google Play and Kobo.

If you cannot wait until Tuesday to get into the action, stop by the release party on Facebook starting at 7:00 pm EST Monday, February 27, 2017.
