ARC Review of Last Night With The Duke by Amelia Grey

An enchanting and lovely start to a new Series by Amelia Grey.  

The Duke of Griffin is a honorable and responsible Nobleman who looks after his twin sisters, his extended family and everyone and everything in his purview.  He was not always a responsible Duke.  When he was younger he caroused with his friends.  Wine, Woman, Gambling, reckless wagers and mischief. The wager that he and his friends made brought ruin and scandal to the young ladies that debuted that year.  He and his fellow Dukes have never been able to live down the wager.  Someone is spreading rumors that his twin sisters should suffer for what he did years ago.

Esmeralda Swift runs an employment agency for governesses.  She takes care of her younger sister and barely makes ends meet.  The Duke of Griffin walks into the agency and demands that she be his sisters chaperone for the coming season.  They are instantly attracted to each other. The sensual pull between them is intense. He has never been this obsessed with a woman before.  She is off limits because she is in his employ.

The connection that forms between Griffin and Esmeralda is wonderful and is the core of this story.  Amelia's writing is witty and charming.  I smiled throughout this book.  I loved Esmeralda's little sister Josephine and her dog Napoleon who will make you laugh out loud.  This is also a emotionally fulfilling love story that brought me to tears.  I enjoyed this story very much and will look forward to the next book in this Series.

Received a complimentary copy for an honest review.
