Review: Only a Duke Will Do (To Marry a Rogue #2) by Tamara Gill
SynopsisWithout a Season, Lady Isolde Worthingham captured the Duke of Moore’s heart at a country dance. But on the eve of her wedding, a scandal that rocked the ton and sent her fleeing to Scotland alone and unwed, leaves her perfectly planned future in a tangle of disgrace and heartbreak.
Merrick Mountshaw, the Duke of Moore, loathes the pitiful existence he portrays to the ton. With a scandalous wife he never wanted, who flaunts her many indiscretions, life is a never-ending parade of hell. When the one woman he loved and lost returns to London, he knows he can no longer live without her.
But vows and past hurts are not easily forgotten. Love may not win against the ton when a too proper lord and lady play by the rules.
It's a very emotional read. The story is amazing and the characters are all well-written. It's a must read for historical fiction fans.
Duke of Moore and Lady Isolde fell in love at first sight. Since the day they met they have known that they're meant to be together. They are going to have their happily-ever-after soon. But then they're both betrayed. Isolde leaves her home and move to Scotland, heart broken and in despair. Moore, shackled in a marriage he didn't want, becomes resigned to his fate. And life went on....
Now after five years Isolde is back. As soon as their path crosses they both realise how much they still love each other. Unfortunately it doesn't matter any more. Moore has his own life, a wife and a child. And Isolde is also ready to move on, find a husband of her own, and finally be happy. But the more they see each other, the more difficult it becomes to deny what they know to be true. Will they ever be happy or are they doomed to live apart and in misery for the rest of their lives?
It's a very interesting story, with many twists and turns, I quite enjoyed reading it. 'To Marry a Rogue' has become one of my favourite historical romance series. It has drama, romance, intrigue, heart break, and lots of emotions which kept me interested through out the book.
