Review: WHEN YOU WISH UPON A DUKE by Isabella Bradford

About the book:

In a sparkling new series filled with irresistible charm and sizzling romance,award-winning author Isabella Bradford introduces us to the eldest of three Wylder sisters-unruly country girls whose passion for life leaves their London suitors breathless.

Raised in the Dorset countryside, Lady Charlotte Wylder doesn’t care one bit about well-bred decorum. The dark-haired, blue-eyed beauty would rather ride a horse than attend a stuffy ball. So when Charlotte learns that she is to leave immediately for London to wed the Duke of Marchbourne, a perfect model of aristocratic propriety, she is less than enchanted with her arranged marriage.

But to her delight, their first encounters are brazenly flirtatious, and their wedding night burns with passion. March’s broad shoulders and dark countenance make Charlotte want to rip every button off his waistcoast. She may even be falling in love with her new husband. Yet whenever their desire boils over, March reluctantly pushes Charlotte away. Will past secrets and present misunderstandings mire their marriage in scandal, or serve to strengthen a bond that is destined to last a lifetime?

Charlotte and March are a fun couple. I really love the way they fall in love with each other. I also really liked the way that Charlotte goes after March when he runs from his feelings for her. What I didn’t love was the drawn out feel to the story. The romance between Charlotte and March could have fit into a novella and felt like a complete story. Several times it felt as if they were at their happily ever after only to have something else happen between them. There isn’t anything unique about the story. WHEN YOU WISH UPON A DUKE is just a nice, sweet historical romance.
