Review: THE DUCHESS OF LOVE by Sally MacKenzie

About the book:

The day was as hot as the pond was inviting. It’s not as if anyone in Little Huffington was going to happen upon a secluded vale on the Duke of Greycliffe’s lands. And Venus Collingswood didn’t want to get her shift all wet. It was the perfect setting in which to plan her lovely bookworm of a sister’s betrothal to the mysterious new duke arriving seven days hence. If only she had a suitable accomplice…

Andrew Valentine, Duke of Greycliffe, never thought arriving at his own household a week early would cause so much trouble. The housekeeper thinks he’s his own cousin. Actually, the chance to not be the duke for a while is a pleasant opportunity indeed. It might even help him interrogate the delectable little nymph he’s discovered swimming in his pond—if he can manage to get a word in edgewise…

This sweet, funny novella is the perfect introduction to a new series. I loved both Drew and Venus. They are both young and fun. I can’t wait to find out how Venus’s matchmaking goes with her own children. My only complain is that I have to wait till June to read the next story – BEDDING LORD NED.

the book girl gives THE DUCHESS OF LOVE a 5/5
