Every book is a new journey to embark on. I mainly read romances, but I dabble in other genres too.
Book 3 of Heiress Brides
Well... I certainly liked the first half. It was nice to see Sophie just go for it. She went after her man and didn't sit by and wait for him. That's why I posted this quote:
"So go get him.
She would if she could--
Have you actually tried?
She stopped, her fingertips going to her lips in surprise. She hadn't tried, had she? Here she was, all dressed up and waiting for her prince to notice, instead of slapping him a good one and dragging him down for a kiss that would make him forget every other woman he'd ever known!"
I liked how Graham took his new responsibility as duke seriously. He took it head on even though he was left with so much debt.
For me, the precise moment the book lost me was when Sophie slips in the narration(show spoiler)
Huh? That sort of came out of nowhere.
It took me a while to get used to that fact, and it almost brought down the book for me. Almost. I think what saved it was how there was a theme of people not being who they appear to be. Fortescue for instance(show spoiler)
Speaking of Fortescue, I was glad to see his story wrapped up too since his crush on the maid was a subplot in all three books. He has a happy ending, but I wish it wasn't so rushed. I wanted to see more of him.
The ending for Sophie and Graham was also good. I liked how she(show spoiler)
I liked how that worked out. Kinda steep, but it was good enough for me.

Heiress Brides review
#1 Desperately Seeking a Duke - 3 stars
#2 The Duke Next Door - 3 stars
#3 Duke Most Wanted - 3 stars
I thought this was an average series. All three books were solid reads despite some issues I had with them. They were simple but fun.
My favorite would have to be The Duke Next Door. I like awkward characters, and the hero in that one has trouble expressing emotions and simply thinks too logically. I can relate to that a little.
If you're gonna read this series, I definitely recommend reading them in order. The books build on one another, and I think someone picking up the series at the second or third book would feel like they're lost or missing some info on some things.
