My Once and Future Duke - Review

My Once and Future Duke
by Caroline Linden

What I say: What happens at the infamous Vega Club... 

Sophie Campbell is determined to be mistress of her own fate. Surviving on her skill at cards, she never risks what she can’t afford to lose. Yet when the Duke of Ware proposes a scandalous wager that’s too extravagant to refuse, she can’t resist. If she wins, she’ll get five thousand pounds, enough to secure her independence forever.

Stays at the Vega Club...

Jack Lindeville, Duke of Ware, tells himself he’s at the Vega Club merely to save his reckless brother from losing everything, but he knows it’s a lie. He can’t keep his eyes off Sophie, and to get her he breaks his ironclad rule against gambling. If he wins, he wants her—for a week.

Until now. 

A week with Jack could ruin what’s left of Sophie’s reputation. It might even cost her her heart. But when it comes to love, all bets are off...



I received a copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: I enjoyed the romance, drama and flirty banter between Jack and Sophie in My Once and Future Duke.

The book is full of charming dalliances and unexpected chemistry. 

Jack spends his time being respectable by trying to reign in his younger irresponsible brother's gambling and spending habits. When he observes his brother's attachment to Sophie he holds her responsible for his outrageous gaming debts and sets out to teach her a lesson. He comes up with a bet she cannot refuse. 

Sophie is determined to make her own way by earning enough money to make a respectable marriage and find safety out of the spotlight. She's found an entertaining way to supplement her income without loosing her reputation, that is until she meets her match in the Duke of Ware.

Their interactions are fun and hilarious. I loved watching them trying to outfox each other, only to have their plans scuppered and having to regroup. 

I'd love to have been able to hang out at the Vega club with Sophie and to teach the  society gents a thing or too.

A cute and dramatic historical romance.

4 Stars in my Sky!
