ARC Review of I Dared the Duke by Anna Bennett


This is the second book in the Wayward Wallflowers Series.  Alex and Beth's story.  Beth has become the Dowager Duchess's companion.  She doesn't need to work because her sister married an Earl, (My Brown Eyed Earl, the first book in the series).  Beth is a person who needs to be needed.  She has to fix things and help people, it is just the way she is.  The Duke of Blackshire is a rake of the first order and the Grandson of the Duchess that she is taking care of.  She never thought that she would actually be living in the same house as the Duke, but he has moved in and wants her gone!!

Alex has moved back into his townhouse and wants his Grandmother to move to the country because someone is trying to kill him.  He doesn't have any idea who would want him dead but he will not take a chance with his beloved Grandmother's life.  She took care of him and never left his side when he was burned in the accidental fire that took his parents life.  He had no idea that Beth was living with his Grandmother and to make it worse, he was the one who gave them the wallflower nickname that dogged her and her sisters for the last three years.

What they don't count on is the attraction that grows between them until they cannot keep their hands off each other.  Add in attempts on Alex's life and you have a mystery that will take you on an adventure that you will thoroughly enjoy.   I really like Anna's writing.  The plot was well crafted with lots of surprises.  The love story was beautiful and sexy.  This is enthralling story that has everything you would want in an Historical Romance.  Do not miss this one!!!
