Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for the complimentary ARC. All opinions provided are my own.
I had never read a Caroline Linden book before All the Duke I Need but I loved this romance. Seriously loved it.
From the hot leads to the hot chemistry between them, from the surrounding familial drama to the estate workings, from the cute little moments—throwing apple cores & walnuts to the almost-kisses—this book is a total delight.
Did I mention that one of the MCs is compared to a pirate in appearance & total charmer but is sometimes moved to blushes and/or stupification (is that a word?) by the heroine’s sass?!
Other things I love:
💛 Class difference. He’s an estate steward & she’s the duchess’s ward (& almost grand-daughter) & heiress.
💛 Secrets & a twist I didn’t anticipate
💛 A consideration of the brutality of colonization (though I wanted the consideration to be even more assertive)
💛 Angst. Kind of kidding here bc you might know I’m not one for angst but it’s really well done here & I could feel the pain & rawness of their separation.
This is a wonderful book & this couple made me so happy. I feel like I had the biggest smile in my heart/possibly on my face reading their interactions. So good!
5 ⭐️. Release date: 04/26
