Image of When the Duke Found Love (The Wylder Sisters)

Bradford entices the reader in this third of the Wylder Sisters series, capturing the nuances of Georgian England. By including recurring characters from the previous books and a mischievous dog, alongside a spitfire heroine paired with a rakish Duke of Sheffield, Bradford creates a nicely crafted story.

With her two older sisters happily married, Lady Diana Wylder has no desire to wed yet. But, as a dutiful daughter, she agrees to her mother’s acceptance of an offer from Lord Crump. She cannot see herself married to this stern, humorless, older man. A chance meeting with a happy little dog and his handsome, flirtatious master results in a change of life for Diana and the gentleman, the Duke of Sheffield. Sheffield is intrigued by Diana, who is impetuous and a challenge. While passion and a deep love evolve, they discover that only duty to themselves is worth fulfilling.
