A Duchess a Day: A Novel (Awakened by a Kiss Book 1)

We rated this book:


“Declan Shaw, who is known as “The Huntsman,” has had enough of wealthy women after his last job, which involved escorting a noblewoman to France. His next job, however, has him managing Helena Lark, a willful earl’s daughter, before her marriage to the Duke of Lusk. Helena, for her part, wants nothing to do with the duke and would rather live in her orchard in peace. Naturally, the tension between the two of them will come to a head. Just as naturally, that tension will blossom into romance.

What I loved most about this romance, more even than the sizzling tension, was the fact that it isn’t just Declan who changes over the course of the novel. Very often it’s the man who grows to meet the woman, but in A Duchess a Day, Helena has a marked revelation about her actions partway through the book. I loved seeing a heroine whose flaw isn’t just something that makes her unmarriageable for her time but is an actual character flaw that doesn’t ruin her for the reader but colors her. I fell head over heels for Declan and Helena, and I expect to do the same for the rest of the couples in this series.”
