How to Marry a Duke

How to Marry a Duke - Vicky Dreiling Historical romance is one of my guiltiest pleasures and I can't believe how wonderfully Vicky Dreiling combined modern storytelling with a well thought out story. I must admit that I have watched the Bachelor and found the little bits and pieces a charming jab at the show. Also, there influences of the Millionaire Matchmaker in there somewhat as well. So, by now you can tell I am a reality show junky.The two romantic leads of this smartly written romance will have you yelling and screaming at your book (much like I yell at my television) while Tessa and Tristan find their way to each other. Seriously, think about all of those reality shows that have eliminations. I was reminded a bit of Rock of Love during one or two scenes with the heaving bosoms. I know I haven't gone into detail about the plot or characters, but trust me, this is one fun read and I can't wait for the next one from this author.
