Anything But a Duke by Christy Carlyle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Anything But a Duke by Christy Carlyle is Book Two in The Duke's Den Series. This is the story of Diana Ashby and Aidan Iverson. I have read the previous book (and Loved it) but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so.
Aidan had a harsh start to the world when he and his sister were just left at a work house. But he has gotten them out of that and now he is very rich man and is a part of the Duke's Den, but the one thing he can't break into is aristocratic Society. Diana knows all the ins and outs of being proper thanks to Bexley Finishing School but doesn't want that life nor a husband. Diana's father was a inventor who was very successful but she has taken up the practice. But she needs some backing to continue her work which leads her to the Duke's Den for help. There she sees Aidan who she helped save when he was being robbed/attacked. Neither exchanged names or anything but neither forgot the other. A deal is struck that Diana will help Aidan find the wife he needs to break into society if he will back her invention. But sometimes the most perfect deal has a way of changing...
Loved their story and this author!
