‘Only a Duke Will Do’ by Tamara Gill is book two in the “To Marry a Rogue” series. This is the story of Lady Isolde Worthingham and Merrick Mountshaw, the Duke of Moore. I have read the Previous book “Only an Earl Will Do” but feel strongly this can be a standalone book. This book was a second chance book for love that should have been from the start a happy ending but there was someone who prevent that for these two loves! Isolde and Merrick meet at a dance where they fall in love from the start. Merrick asked Isolde to marry him pretty quickly. But on the eve of their Wedding a jealous friend of Isolde set into motion a plan that destroyed their chance to be married. Instead Merrick was force to marry that evil friend. Now about 5 years later after Isolde up and left the town for Scotland she has decided to return to the town to find herself a husband. Isolde quickly runs into Merrick and they both at first try to act as if the past didn’t happen. But Isolde starts to learn that Merrick is living the happy married life with her former friend as she assumed. Merrick learns that Isolde is back in town to marry…which is upsetting to him. Merrick is still married but the town has made a joke of his marriage. In addition, Merrick’s best friend has his eye on Isolde for a wife. Can these two ever find the happens that they both deserve? This was another great book by Ms. Gill…and only makes me want more!
