At times, I found myself really enjoying this romance as it has plenty of elements which make for fun, easy reading and just the right amount of drama. The concept of a Newgate prisoner receiving a last-minute pardon and discovering he's the heir to a dukedom is the stuff romance novels are made of and this one delivers by making Quinn Wentworth a fascinating character with a complex history. However, once Quinn is freed and begins his journey of vengence while also falling in love with the woman he wed while imprisoned, the story felt like it was told in fits and starts, with even the conversations between characters jumping from topic to topic. Overall, this one made for an enjoyable, light read, but still find myself wanting more from this book. ( )

Banker Quin Wentworth has been condemned to Newgate prison and a death sentence. When by chance he meets the daughter of a vicar who regularly visits the prison, he is charmed by her. When he learns that said daughter, Jane, is also widowed and with child he thinks he'll come to her aid by offering her marriage and a healthy portion of funds to support herself and the child after his imminent death. However, when Quin is suddenly pardoned after it's discovered that he's the heir to a Duke's estate he and Jane must determine whether there is enough between them to make a marriage.

A thoroughly charming historical romance with an intriguing and quirky cast of characters. The Wentworth siblings are entertaining with their personality traits developed in a destitute youth and Quin and Jane are charming and hold the reader's attention as the plot progresses. It did take me a lot longer than usual for this genre to get a good read on Quin but watching both him and Jane grow as people and a couple was thoroughly enjoyable. I liked it enough that I'll be reading the rest of the series. ( )

Please see all of my reviews on my blog at https://www.robinlovesreading.com.

London banker Quinn Wentworth is soon to executed. When Quinn discovers the plight of a prison preacher’s daughter, Jane Winston, he offers a solution. Jane is widowed, pregnant and destitute. Quinn has very little time left, so he sees no problem offering her marriage, which in turn will provide a comfortable life fo her and her child, and get her away from her disaster of a father.

Here’s the catch. Not only is Quinn actually innocent of the crime for which he is to be hanged, he has been framed. At the last possible moment, he is saved shortly after he’d been declared the long-lost heir to a dukedom. Quinn has two things on his agenda: to claim his bride, and to find and deal with his enemy.

If dreams could come true, Quinn and Jane can have a wonderful future together. Little did they know...

Jane, Quinn and his siblings plow ahead towards an uncertain future. Adjustments must be made. For one thing, as much as their they shared a powerful chemistry from the outset, Jane’s past was quite painful and this most certainly affects any possible chance of happiness she may have with Quinn. On the other hand, Quinn quickly develops powerful feelings for Jane, but his drive for vengeance may cause their undoing.

What made My One and Only Duke work so well for me was the many layers. While there was most certainly romance with deep emotion, there was also mystery, drama and the wonderful historical setting. There was also the incredible shock of the near-hanging. The character development was done quite well, laying the groundwork for future books in the series.

This is the first book in the Rogues to Riches series. The next book is When a Duchess Says I Do, expected publication in April, 2019, which is Duncan Wentworth’s story.

Included in the print version of the book is Once Upon a Christmas Eve,a novella by Elizabeth Hoyt, which I will review separately.

Many thanks to Forever for this ARC to review. This is my honest opinion. ( )

The only reason I took 5 days to read this book is that I could not get people to leave me alone long enough to read it one sitting. I would have. I loved the OTP, and I am excited about the remaining characters. ( )

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

If the eyes were windows to the soul, Mr. Wentworth's soul was a bleak, silent moor under a gray December sky.

First in a new series and an introduction to the Wentworth family, My One and Only Duke, stars the oldest Wentworth, Quinn, and a minister's daughter Jane. This was a slow burn story from both accounts, the romance and mystery. The beginning with Quinn imprisoned in Newgate awaiting to be hung dueled with the investigators from the College of Arms as they searched for an heir to the Walden Dukedom. This gave the start of the story a suspenseful and tense back and forth as Quinn's time was running out and the investigators were closing in.

In the complicated economy of a prison, a returned bribe meant one of two things: Somebody else had paid a much bigger bribe, or had made a more effective threat.

The mystery is the engine that keeps the story going, but it does start to putter around midway through. There's a lot of talked about danger but even though Quinn has a good idea who he thinks is behind wanting him dead, his investigations are pretty slow to get to and it ends up feeling like no one is really doing anything as the focus seems to revert back to Jane and the household whenever someone goes off. The eventual wrap-up and reveal ended up feeling a tad convoluted tight as character connections, money, and motivations flew from everywhere; we also don't get to form much of a connection to the villain(s) and supposed villain(s).

Don't give me that Yorkshire growl, as if you'd tear me to pieces when I know you feed wild birds, marry stray widows, and work yourself half to death for your family. It won't wash, Quinn. You can intimidate every rolled-up title in Mayfair with that performance, but I know better.

The romance is that cherished Burrowes' hero and heroine connection that speaks of soulmates but also has some slow burn as they learn each other. Our heroine starts the book pregnant, she's a widow and our hero marries her to help her gain freedom from her zealot father, which kind of keeps her home bound. Jane was a wonderful showcase of growing into her own, standing up to father, and being the more emotionally courageous one in putting herself out there to connect with Quinn. We get a lot about the background of Quinn but his character still felt too blocked off to me. There was some seeing with the large amount of telling about Quinn and the Wentworth family but only a couple of the emotional connections filtered through for me; I felt stiff armed by Quinn for most of the story. Quinn was big-hearted stoic and Jane was emotionally courageous, which provided for some sexy scenes but if Quinn had been unveiled just a little more, their romance would have popped some more.

The daft woman like swiving him, liked touching him, liked talking with him. The touching was bad enough---Quinn well knew the danger of sweet touches---but the talking would be his doom.

The mystery was a bit slow and drawn out but I'm excited to read more about this family; a possible Althea, hero's sister, and Joshua, hero's business partner, romance has me intrigued and I absolutely demand Ned eventually gets his own book. This was more gentle and methodical, with some dry cheekiness from and between characters that will tickle your fancy. This was a solid start to a series that I'm looking forward to reading about each family member. ( )
