The Major’s Faux Fiancee (Dukes of War #4) by Erica Ridley is a regency war story that tackles doubt, despair and lust that will have you immediately double-clicking your e-reader to download the other books in this phenomenal series!
Major Bartholomew Blackpool has returned from war unable or willing to assimilate and has become a recluse. A war injury proves to be one obstacle he can’t seem to overcome and can’t allow himself to be seen out and about. Perhaps he could try if only the guilt didn’t weigh him down.
When you mix a wounded soldier and a damsel in distress you get the makings for a fantastic romantic adventure. There’s just one catch… don’t call Daphne a damsel in distress. Daphne has found her life calling helping others. If only her guardian could be more supportive she might not find herself in need of her own rescuing.
Unfortunately her guardian has given her an ultimatum, either choose a husband she can live with or risk being betrothed to one of her guardian’s choosing. Daphne reaches out in desperation to the one person whom she hopes will understand her predicament and help her. Bartholomew responds to her request and Daphne discloses her unconventional plan, will he help her? How will his friends and family respond when they realize what’s become of him?
Unfortunately Bartholomew is obsessed with how people perceive him that he ignores what’s right in front of him. Daphne is committed to helping those in need of a leader and a voice to be heard. Can they both discover that their goals may actually be the same and that they might actually be perfect for each other? This book tackles the sensitivity of war and how to recover with grace, humility and heartfelt passion.
While I received this ARC for a fair and honest review, I would buy this for myself or as a gift. Each book in this series is engaging and can be read on it’s own or gobbled up a fabulous series!
