‘Why Do Dukes Fall in Love?’ is book four in the “Dukes Behaving Badly” series. This is the story of Michael, the Duke of Hadlow and Edwina Cheltam. I have been jumping in and out of this series, so for me this easily was a standalone book.
Hadlow is a loner with only a dog and his servants. Hadlow finds people boring / dull and gets tired easily of talking to others. But he is in need of a secretary and hasn’t found one yet that he thinks he can put up with.
Edwina is now a widow and mother of a six year old daughter. Edwina husband left her without any money and is in need of a job. So she goes to her friend who has a job placement business and asked for help. Edwina is set up to interview with Hadlow who quickly hires her and allows her daughter to move in with her since he wants his secretary to live at his house. They start of finding out that each other are both witty, smart and that they become friends of sort…I would guess you say. Then their attraction start to take over…which leads to and added complication to their already odd friendship/business arrangement.
I really enjoyed this book and could not put it it down! I am now looking for more in this series.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
