Anna Carrington is no longer a child, but a marriageable young woman who has loved the Duke of Fairmount for years. She has kept her love for him well hidden, sure that even if, by some miracle, he did return her feelings, his dedication to propriety would never allow him to marry his ward.

Jared St. James is known for his strict adherence to the rules of society and respectability, even though he finds himself lusting after Anna. Having struggled against his desire to his young ward, he decides the only way to right the situation is to marry her off, but will she accept the man he has chosen for her or stake claim to her innocence?

A Duke’s Desire by Liz Cole was a great read from Breathless Press and a wonderful quick historical romance by Liz Cole. I believe this is the first book I’ve read by Liz Cole and I’ll be picking or finding another one very soon.

I love romances with an age gap and I loved watching the hero in this story lead but also crumble and succumb to the love and heat of the heroine. As it is a short read, the story line moves quickly and that is why I gave it 4 cups rather than the 5.

I felt it could have been longer. I’m a greedy reader and would have loved to have seen the build up a little more, which is described in the first few chapters. However, I recommend this as it is perfect for a quick fun, sexy read.
