Book Review: What a Duke Wants by Lavinia Kent

What a Duke Wants by Lavinia Kent
Author: Lavinia Kent
Release Date: September 27th 2011
Publisher: Harper Collins, Inc.
Age: Adult
What woman would refuse a Duke’s kiss?
Running from a dark secret past, Isabella Masters craves peace and stability, a life far from the prying eyes of society.
She does not dream of landing a lord.
But in the arms of a stranger with magnificent eyes, she loses herself in one breath-stealing kiss— only to discover she has been misled by a reluctant Duke.
Angered but enthralled, she dares not submit . . . though her passionate heart begs her to. He cannot wed her . . . but he must not lose her.
Only one possibility remains— one too scandalous to consider . . . yet too tempting to resist.
I decided to read What a Duke Wants following the reviews. Almost all said this was a great book, so why not? I was not disappointed.

Isabella has a secret past that can't be discovered by anyone. She just want an easy life, away from society. So when she meets the man of her dreams, she's very sure he's going to ask her to marry him and have a wonderful life.

Mark doesn't know how to be a Duke. He just want some nice and quiet time alone when he met Isabella. She's beautiful, and doesn't know he is a Duke. It's perfect, but he knows he has to tell her sometime...

Isabella and Mark were an explosive couple! They have chemistry and a way to make you fall in love with them, even when you discover Mark is actually a liar and Isabella is running from law. I liked the plot, it had many twists and a lot of mystery and suspense, but Isabella and Mark always managed to be together, even when it very scandalous...

Overall, I absolutely loved it! One of my favorites romance, full of twists and high emotions, I highly recommend it.
