The Duke That I Marry - Review

The Duke That I Marry - Spinster Heiresses #3
by Cathy Maxwell

What they say: Once upon a time there were three young ladies who, despite their fortunes, had been on the marriage mart a bit too long. They were known as "the Spinster Heiresses"...

Is it wrong for a woman to want more?

Not if she is a Spinster Heiress. They do not settle. Any young miss would be very lucky to find herself promised to a man like the Duke of Camberly. However, Miss Willa Reverly has watched her friends marry for love. Camberly may be the prize of the season, but she will not be "sold" to any man. She wants his devotion or she wants nothing at all.

When is a Marriage of Convenience inconvenient?

Newly named to the ducal title, Matthew Addison is determined to discover the secrets behind Mayfield, the bankrupt estate he has inherited. He doesn't have time to coddle a headstrong heiress who is determined to ditch him over something as silly as "love." Little does he know that his questions will place her in jeopardy. Now he must do what he must to save them both.

Could it be that in running from danger they might be racing headlong into a truly unexpected fate: falling in love?

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review!

What I say: The Duke That I Marry is the third book in Cathy Maxwell's Spinster Heiresses series but works as a standalone.

Aww!! I enjoyed this story. Willa's determination to avoid the norms of society made me smile. Matt has inherited a title, estate and all the problems that come with it.

Matt's new situation means he must marry for money so he is less than enthusiastic by the prospect of marrying a lady he doesn't really know. Willa is unimpressed at being married off to someone who hasn't even attempted to try to get to know her and settles against marrying him.

Matt needs to marry her and so must get to know Willa and is also faced with the prospect of discovering what happened to the family money and why the former grand estate is in so much debt.

Their relationship is a slow burn and cute. Willa is quirky and funny. I enjoyed this sweet story about their romantic exploits. 

3.5 - 4 Stars in my Sky!
