I've been a Grace Burrowes fan since I read her first book, and have read them all. This may be one of my favorites. The two main protagonists were charming and interesting, smart people. The supporting cast couldn't have been better--maybe especially Griffin, the Duke of Haverford's unusual brother. Grace handled him with such care and compassion--and with an appealing sense of humor. There was, however, one hero I would have liked to do away with, and I understand he's going to reappear in the next novel in this series. I, personally, don't think he's worth redeeming; but maybe Grace can work her magic and change my mind? I really did, however, greatly have fun the method the heroine threatened to ruin him, and if he wasn't scared at her threat, he should have been. Elizabeth was no paper tiger and could have carried out her threat in a trice. Grace writes the most charming, smart books with the most appealing characters, regardless of the period. I've said it before but will say it again--I love Grace Burrowes' books!
I have loved Grace Burrowes historicals since I happened upon The Duke's Disaster (I will pick that book up and re-read over and over again). I'm not a fan of the 50 Shades of Grey type of romance - it's just not my cup of tea. However, Grace strikes the excellent balance of relatably human, perfectly flawed characters. I love that her women are not pretty, simpering mewl cats and the men are not devious simpletons. She seems to have a knack for writing strong, honorable, misunderstood and sympathetic characters that you root for, and when the HEA does come, it doesn't feel cheap or trite. No Other Duke Will Do is in keeping with that tradition. You can't support but fall in love with Julian and Elizabeth's story and the secondary characters are just as engaging. I have yet to come across a story from Grace that I don't have fun and most I flat out love.
I love regency romances! I’ve read all of this author’s books, she’s probably my favorite, and liked most, even loved some. This book had a mildly intriguing premise - debutante approaching spinsterhood attends a house party and falls for a duke approaching bankruptcy. The heroine, Miss Elizabeth Windham, was compelling - pretty, smart, kind, and loyal, if a small bit bland. The hero, Julian St David, Duke of Havorford, was also compelling - handsome, aristocratic, and stalwart. They had amazing chemistry, but small sizzle. The storyline was sweet but not particularly complex. Overall, a amazing book that never quite caught fire for me.
Grace Burrowes is one of my very favourite romance authors. Though I don't read her contemporary romances, I have read all the historical novels. Though her Captive Hearts Series is excellent, I am really enjoying the Windham Brides series. But No Other Duke Will Do is the best so far. Characters create or break a book, as far as I'm concerned, and Julian and Elizabeth are magic. The chemistry between the two is electric--okay, I know it's a book!--and how their romance progresses is a attractive love story. There are a lot of of the usual elements in a romance: a house party where the H/h meet (neither one of them wish to be there), brother and sister each trying to play matchmaker for the other, a sweet secondary romance, a not-so-bad villain and a seemingly insurmountable issue for the lovers: absolutely no money. We've read these all before, but in Ms. Burrowes hands, they all seem very fresh. I read it in one sitting and am looking forward to the latest Windham Bride's story.
Not the best Burrowes book, but still good. I really liked the hero, but this book's couple reminds me a lot of Ian and Augusta from The Bridegroom Wore Plaid. However, TBWP was a superior story.I found the side romances far more interesting than the main duo and I really want there was more detail about the hero's sister and her guy. I found the teasers about Charlotte's romance so promising I immediately pre-ordered her book after finishing this one. If that romance lives up to its potential, it will have created this book more than worth the e largest flaw with this story is how relatively bland it is. It's a rehash of a previous theme done half as well. Still, Burrowes is talented enough to create a so-so rehash better than a lot of romances out there.
And I'm waiting for Charlotte's book, too.I simply adored this book. I read straight through. (And I'll have you to know, I have responsibilities! I ignored them.)The characters are wonderful. I could search myself in the young ladies ( well, a much younger me), and I quite fell for a couple young e twists of the plot were adorable. I loved the method not one, not two, but three couples found their method to happily ever after in this story. And it only took one house party!
Elizabeth Windham loves books and has not time for men. Julian St. David, Duke of Haverford needs cash not a wife. Both search that they are attracted but accept that there is no future for the two of them. Another amazing story from Burrowes. I enjoyed seeing how books end up being what saves the day. Elizabeth and Julian are both amazing characters who are also very nice people. I could not support but pull for the two of them. A nice addition to the series.
Margaret Locke weaves another delightful Regency romance -- just when you think it's predictable, she twists the plot to hold you guessing. She deftly works in tidbits from past books that reward her loyal readers but are in no method important to the enjoyment of the story. Romance is usually not my genre, but I have fun this author's work and am glad to have shared a professional women's group with is book has another interesting element that adds richness—her protagonist, the dark, brooding, and handsome Damon Blackbourne, has what we know today as Tourette's Syndrome which, in the early 19th century, was unknown and frightening. As a boy, he was thought to be possessed and was banished by his father to a remote castle with just enough staff to see to his primary needs. When his father and older brother are killed in a tragic carriage accident, his mother calls him home to become the reluctant Duke. This scandalizes the "ton," infuriates his uncle (who thought he would be the heir) and intrigues bookish Grace Mattersley, who has never had any use for her society's strict rules.Fair warning: there are some steamy love scenes, so if you're looking for something pure and chaste, look elsewhere.
I enjoyed this book very much. The Duke was a handsome likeable man who was trying to overcome his physical disability which was misunderstood in his era. Grace was a caring understanding woman very liberal in her thinking. The conversations we're entertaining and the storyline was interesting enough to hold me reading straight through. This author has captured my attention
My first Margaret Locke novel! Having met the author recently on social media, I was curious to sample her work. This is the opposite of what usually happens for me. It's usually read first, curiosity about the author second.Locke has crafted a wonderfully romantic Regency tale that clearly weaves her private experience and an inclination toward the literary world. I fell in love with Damon Blackbourne, Duke of Malford in the first chapter. I fell equally in love with Lady Grace Mattersley in the second a fellow lover of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, I keep amazing affinity for Lady Grace Mattersley. She reminds me of myself, a bookish spinster quite content with her state, however, begin to only the deepest love with my own private Fitzwilliam Darcy.I immediately recognized Damon's malady as a family member suffered the exact neurological symptoms during my childhood.I appreciated that the couple individually recognized their attraction for what it was and rather than a story of them fighting their mutual attraction, we are treated to a story that wars outside forces while drawing the couple my delight, there are three prior books to have fun that precede this. I'm looking forward to reading these time travel novels as several characters from this book are featured in the prior novels.
I'm particular in my favorite authors. Margaret Locke is absolutely in my favorite authors list. I've read and reread all her titles in this series. The special plot twists, the awareness raised while seamlessly woven into the spell-binding tale, The Demon Duke's story is full of tender romance, passion, excitement, and most of all a down to earth humanity that draws the reader into a globe I want I could have a time traveling peek ank you for writing. Well done. Please don't stop! I eagerly await the unfolding of the other characters love stories (they will come, won't they!?).
This might be my favorite of Margaret Locke's books so far. This is the first in a fresh series but also builds on the stories she started in her first three novels. The first three books use some elements from Jane Austen's novels to combine with contemporary 21st-century ideas. This one switches gears a small by adding in some elements from 18th-century Gothic 1814 England, Damon is in his late 20s when he learns his father and older brother have been killed in a carriage accident, making him the fresh Duke of Malford. Not only hasn't he been trained to be duke, he's also spent the latest 17 years or so in exile. But now that he's back and running his family's estate, he has more to prove than whether or not he can function in society. He also needs to overcome the stigma of the secret that created a father turn versus his son - a stigma that could now turn the woman he loves versus him as at woman is Lady Grace Mattersley, a shy bookworm who was introduced to us in Locke's second novel, "A Matter of Time."I loved returning to 19th-century England in this book and reading more about the Mattersley family. But if you haven't read Locke's other books, don't worry. This one beautiful much stands on its own, and Locke explains who everyone is. Looking forward to the next in this series.
I've been a fan of Ms. Locke's books since her debut novel, A Man of Character. What I love about her stories is that they have all the best aspects of romance novels--swoon-worthy heroes, relatable heroines, and unbelievable settings--and yet they are still very unique. This certainly holds real for The Demon Duke. In my opinion, this is the best yet, as Locke is able to tell a attractive love story (with tips of Beauty & the Beast) while also highlighting the struggles that come with being various in a highly structured society. It's funny, though perhaps not quite as laugh-out-loud as the author's other books, but most of all it is a story full of heart which makes you care deeply about the characters involved. A very enjoyable and thought-provoking read. I can't wait for more "Put Up Your Dukes" stories!
Nice relationship between h/h and appreciated the various background but I HATED the Jane Austen references as it was unnecessary and ruined the flow of the storyline. The male h was amazing but spit out too a lot of overused flowery terms and got predictable by halfway.
I’ve read Ms. Locke’s other romances, which featured some light paranormal events, including time travel and magic. The Demon Duke is her first foray into a non-paranormal historical, but she took a special angle on her story by giving her character an unusual secret affliction.Damon’s Blackbourne’s secret has estranged him from his family (his father was a cruel man who held the dominant views of the time about Damon’s syndrome), but after his father’s death, Damon must return to Society to take on the responsibilities of the Duke of Malford, including bringing out his sisters. He holds his secret y Grace Mattersley has small interest in the Season or in the Marriage Mart, but the Duke of Malford is various from the usual aristocratic prospective husband. Once she learns his secret, she faces a choice—to revile him as much of Society does, or to follow her is book is one step sideways from your typical genre Regency romance, with a sweet, heartfelt story that, after reading the author’s note, you’ll see as a work of pure love.
Well, I have just added another book to my favorites shelf. This story of Damon and Grace is so wonderfully written. I completely fell in love with Damon, not only because he is devastatingly handsome, as well as sweet and caring, but also due to the fact that I share his disdain for huge gatherings and social obligations. And that library, who could resist? My favorite line comes near the end, ..."anywhere with you and a fine library cannot be anything but paradise."Grace, though an introvert, is a powerful woman who is willing to stand up to anyone or anything that stands in the method of real love. She and Damon are a excellent match if ever there was one. I love both of these characters. The secondary characters are wonderfully supportive...well, except for one, but I must say, he, too, is very well e suffering Damon endures as a kid broke my heart. The fact that he transcended that, and grew into such a strong, caring man, shows what a small love can do in a person's life. I definitely recommend this one, as well as the author's other books.
Dreaming of the Duke (Duke’s Club Book #2) by Eva Devon***Some spoilers***I love reading stories with powerful women. Cordelia is a unbelievable character! She has lived an wonderful life, travelling through the mid-east and India. She has experienced adventure on a scale that most modern women could only want for. She loves her freedom and the exploration of ancient civilizations. I kind of imagined her as regency Indiana rdelia has a issue however. She has a husband that she has never met and the time has come for her to secure her freedom. She travels to London to meet this husband that she was married to by proxy and to secure an annulment or divorce.Her arrival in London causes uproar. The stories about her life are wildly embellished – she has been in a harem, she has seduced princes and worn pants on more than one occasion. To staunch London, they don’t know what to create of her. Is she here for her reluctant husband? Is she here to continue her scandalous ways?Cordelia and Jack meet under interesting circumstances. He thinks she is a prostitute and she is intrigued by her husband. Jack’s family becomes immediately involved in the tangle they are in and insert themselves with their opinions. His sister and mother are delighted with Cordelia, his brother suggests he seduces her and moves on and the dragon matriarch of the family is willing to imprison Cordelia in order to create the marriage stick.With all this interference, Jack daringly rescues Cordelia from his grandmother’s clutches and whisks her away to a retreat in the countryside. He is fascinated by his wife, but yet he can’t imagine actually being a husband. When Cordelia asks for an annulment and willingly submits to a doctor to prove her virginity, it only heightens his interest and lust for her. She does not wish to be taken to the country where she knows that Jack can sway her to his will. It was amusing how she attempts to evade him, only to be rescued by his twin brother who once again puts her in Jack’s care.Jack’s brother was a very interesting secondary character. To say that he is a wastrel and womanizer is an understatement. Apparently the two brothers are quite prolific in the bedroom. Sharing women and enjoying a lot of women at one time. If the author is going to use his brother as the main hero in a book, it would be hard for me to obtain the photos out of my head of his brazen exploits in the bedroom out of my mind.Once Jack and Cordelia are alone, passion takes over. She still wants the annulment, he doesn’t know what he wants, but having her in his bed is priority number one. She is deeply attracted to him and wants to know what she has been missing out on in life. The passion they share was very hot. With all his experience, he is a magnificent lover and Cordelia is a lucky lady. I really enjoyed the love stage and it was graphic without being lurid.Jack’s issue in life is that he doesn’t feel worthy. He was a second son and never meant to be the Duke. He leaves the control of the estate in the hands of his grandmother. The family all believes that the love and partnership of the right woman will give him the courage to exert himself. He starts to believe that he could be that man and that the love of Cordelia is what he needs. But like most men, he gets cold feet and turns coward when it comes time to commit. He turns her away and is tied in knots about what he should be doing.Well, Cordelia is no coward. She has finally found what she wants and she is willing to war for it. With the support of his family and her friends, she takes London by storm. She essentially stalks Jack, forcing him to face her and deal with the fact that she is in London for good. Even though she is deeply damage by his words and actions, she still wars for what they have developed.Her a lot of brothers present up in London and create their displeasure known to Jack and his brother. After a amazing dust up, they are encouraging Jack to create amends with Cordelia. I never understand that about men – how they can fist war and then [email protected]#$%! off with a drink and a laugh.Jack’s moment has come when he finds out that Cordelia is expecting a baby. His baby. He now has to create a choice – face his reality and what he truly, deep down wants or turn coward and abandon her. Thankfully he makes the right choice and goes to Cordelia. He also looks to take on the responsibilities of the dukedom and create peace with the past that has held him prisoner for so a lot of is was a fun book to read. I liked the characters and I liked the chase two married people lead each other on. Cordelia was such a treasure and it was a relief when Jack’s opinion turns from lust and intrigue to love and need. It feels amazing as a reader to step into a story that makes you laugh, frustrated, angry, intrigued and satisfied.
I loved this book would give it more than 5 stars if I could. Codrelia Eversleigh had spent her entire lifein Egypt digging tombs of ancient Egyptians. She was married at the ageof 10 to Jack Eversleigh who is now the Duke of Hunt. Fifteen years has passed with no word from rdy kept hoping as years went by he would come for her. She wants to go to Paris but first must come to London to obtain an annulment from e finally tracks him down and tells him of her plan.He has not had any ambition but drink and one married woman after the other.He blames his life on his father. They both feel a pull toward each other and can not understand why. They agree to be togther for awhile and then part but his friend's not good tip ends e author pulls you in one min you can see the HEA the next the other pushes away.I liked the first book I think this was even better looking forward to the next book about the Dukes..
I'd consider the writing 3/5 most of the method through. The characters lack much substance, though they are a cute ill, we were told motivations, but rarely shown them. The conflict is artificial, most of the arguments create no sense, and everything seems to be moving because the plot demands it.But the ending is a cheap cop out. They resolve their differences, and it's not because they say down to work it out, but because outside twists magically forced their hand. And I knew it was going to play out that way, which makes it somehow worse. It lacks emotional resolution.
Another reviewer said, "There were so a lot of of these, I found it important to re-read entire pages and paragraphs to understand what's going on, at times. There are just too a lot of "from/form," "too/to," "then/than," "there/their" mistakes. Twice, I noticed the word "sink" used instead of "sync." In Chapter 9, among a lot of other mistakes, dialogue is attributed to a hero (the Duke) who is not even in the scene. Here is a sentence from Chapter 11: "I said was poor duke." UGH! How could so a lot of of these errors obtain past a proofreader? The sloppy editing created this such a frustrating read that the only method I'd read Book 3 is if it were free. No, I would not recommend this novel, until someone other than a middle-schooler proofreads and corrects the WAY-TOO-MANY grammar, spelling, and syntax issues that I came across in this frustrating Kindle edition."I was intrigued by this review, as it was almost exactly what I was going to post myself. I was even going to mention the "sink" versus "sync" error.I noticed that there's a note from the author that an unproofed/unedited ver went out between Sept 25 and Oct 7 and that the reader could request an updated copy. However, I bought the book in late November. That means I, supposedly, got the edited version. And the mistakes are method too amazing in number. If my copy is the edited one, I'm really concerned about what the unedited ver was like to read.I'm not often bothered by anachronisms in books. I test to allow them slide if they're not too obvious. However, the description of a hero as a "Kewpie Doll" was just too much. The concept of that wasn't even around until the early 1900s. So this mistake stuck out very blatantly and was a distraction to the reading. This was but one of the things of this nature that kept me from being immersed in the time period of the book and kept bringing me back to the words, speech and customs of the 21st century. I wonder if this author would be better suited to sticking to more contemporary fiction instead; I think trying to adapt her style to a historical one really isn't her forte'.I didn't give this a one star, because I felt that there was some potential in it. But I feel like I was missing something. I didn't have a heartwarming "awwwww" at the end of this book. SPOILER: Despite the hero's saying otherwise, I still feel that he came back because he learned of the baby. And I'm not convinced he wouldn't be out seducing other women a few years down the street when the heroine isn't as fascinating to him or he gets bored. I didn't obtain the impression that he really was redeemed and was over his rakish life. Something was missing there in the writing that created me feel like this was truly a satisfied ending.I'm really not inclined to wish to know what happens to other characters in this story. I'm assuming that other books in the series delve into some of the other characters we got to know in this one. And I don't think I care. I wasn't enamored by any of them to wish to see if they obtain their own happily-ever-after. About 1/2 or 3/4 of the method through a book, I usually begin checking out others by the same author if I'm loving what I'm reading. I didn't search myself doing that this time. The mistakes in this one and the lack of truly touching my heart didn't lead me to begin checking Amazon to see what's next.****One thing that I really wish to create sure to note is this author's use of "Christ" as a curse - very often. This was a very powerful drawback to me, and I do wish to caution others that this is the case in this book. If this is offensive to you, you'll wish to be aware of it. I want I'd known this ahead of time myself.****
Initially skipped over this in reading the set, didn't think I was interested in a story about a girl that had been digging artifacts in Egypt. But after a glimpse of the hero in book 3, went back to read this and quite enjoyed it. Jack did begin to become tiresome in his quest to disengage himself from his wife 2/3 through. The H/h relationship was quite lovely in the beginning of the story, however. Enjoyed the bits involved in the other books, as well.
Tightly spiralling humor, integrated plot, passion and lust for life. All are abundant in Dreaming of the Duke, which has a clever, resourceful heroine, and a dark, tragi-comical hero. Plus his wild family, and her intense brothers. And his grandmother, who truly takes the cake six ways from e book is sexy, but in some locations so incredibly humorous that the rest disappears. Above all, this is a romance, with a large starving of satisfied ever after.Eva Devon writes the books I wish to read!
After reading Book 1, "Once Upon a Duke"in the anthology "Tempted by His Touch," I purchased Book 2. I should have saved my money. While the storyline and characterization was ok ( although I did not search it humorous, hilarious, or laugh out loud funny), I had problem getting through the frequent mistakes, missing words, and ere were so a lot of of these, I found it important to re-read entire pages and paragraphs to understand what's going on, at times. There are just too a lot of "from/form," "too/to," "then/than," "there/their" mistakes. Twice, I noticed the word "sink" used instead of "sync." In Chapter 9, among a lot of other mistakes, dialogue is attributed to a hero (the Duke) who is not even in the scene. Here is a sentence from Chapter 11: "I said was poor duke." UGH! How could so a lot of of these errors obtain past a proofreader?The sloppy editing created this such a frustrating read that the only method I'd read Book 3 is if it were free. No, I would not recommend this novel, until someone other than a middle-schooler proofreads and corrects the WAY-TOO-MANY grammar, spelling, and syntax issues that I came across in this frustrating Kindle edition.
This is my second book by this author, and I really liked it! The first book in the series was terrific, and this one was too. The heroine was quirky but smart, strong, and level-headed. The character was handsome and vulnerable and sexy. They had amazing chemistry. I love the author's writing style and particularly the dialogue. Can't wait for the next book in the series!
Absolutely loved the whole series (6 books). Waiting to see if Eva Devon adds books based on a couple of the other characters. Each book had a enough of a twist to hold the reader for thinking they were the same-oh-same-oh.
What can you say about Will Slater that you haven’t already said. He came to us in another book and was so amazing here he is. I love the method the author takes us away into a fresh adventure, but makes sure we remember the past . I liked the first book , but really loved this one. I couldn’t place it down AGAIN .... 👍🏻 I love the method Will Slater interacts with kids...This book is action packed as always, but the slow spots allow us meet the man. Well done Matt Rogers
At first I thought this book was just about giving me permission. Permission to be silly: waffled mac and cheese. Permission to broil and grill at the same time: waffled sausages, steaks. Permission to do things I really should have thought of doing myself: bacon in the waffle iron. Then I tried the waffled felafel. I love felafel, and I know I can technically create it at home, but, honestly, how often am I going to place a vat on to deep fry it? In mid-August? It took one test for the waffled felafel to obtain inscribed in the regular rotation: delicious, crispy, ridiculously easy, and it barely changed the temperature of the kitchen. Plus I obtain a possibility to say "fawaffle." This is not giving me permission. It is giving me dinner.
I received this book as a bonus along with a belgian waffle iron. I already had a standard waffle iron, but after flipping through the cookbook I couldn't wait to use the fresh belgian waffle iron! I have to admit I rarely used my standard waffle iron because it so huge and bulky and I hated dragging it out, but the fresh belgian waffle iron sits on the counter because I've discovered so a lot of more things to create instead of just 'waffles'.Everything is in this book from Chocolate Stuffed French Toast or Truffled Eggs for breakfast to Gridded Grilled Cheese or the Classic Waffleburger for dinner to Waffled Pineapple or Waffled Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies for dessert. They also have give hints and tools on how to properly use and care for the waffle iron, and give a history timeline on waffles. This cookbook has opened my eyes to the unbelievable globe of waffles, and I have truly fallen in love with the waffle iron all over again!
Not just recipes: Daniel Shumski's humble and amusing journey through waffle-land actually makes for a fun small read, so be sure not to skip right from the titles to the ingredients lists and directions.About those recipes, though... While I'll probably never scramble eggs in my waffle iron, I came away with a number of amazing recipes (you MUST test the brioche - it's SO simple and a delicious component of several items) and inspiration. There's even a section with hints and tip on how to obtain your own recipes going - what generally works, what doesn't. You can follow Shumski's recipes, or take them to a whole other r example, Shumski's idea to create a grilled cheese sandwich in the waffle iron is sheer brilliance by itself, but particularly so if you like to layer it with bacon or tomato. For those of you who do, you know the anguish of trying to flip a loaded sandwich once it's been grilled to perfection on the first side, only to have it all come apart mid flip. In your waffle iron, of course, there's no flipping involved. Issue solved. Bonus: Your sandwiches cook in half the time since both sides cook at once. Double bonus: If you're using a Belgian waffle maker, your sandwich (if you center it, albeit versus Shumski's tip - he suggests placing it as far away from the hinge as possible so as to obtain better leverage for closing it in, but my waffle iron, the Oster CKSTWFBF21, closes very nicely with the sandwich in the middle) will be chop into four sections, excellent for sharing right out of the waffle ndwiches, of course, are only a little part of Will it Waffle? Shumski will have you preparing any number of dishes, from desserts to main courses (think ravioli, macaroni and cheese, stuffed chicken breasts, tamale pie - SO yummy!), all in half the time it takes to cook the same dishes in a pan or in the oven (hint: chocolate chip cookies). I've tried about ten recipes so far and, although there are probably a lot of I'll never obtain to, I've already discovered several that have quickly become staples at my house. I hate to name drop, but the chocolate-stuffed French toast is whole family is in on this, too, as Shumski's book is excellent for seasoned and aspiring waffle iron chefs alike. My kids, including my 14 year-old son, have been having a amazing time in the kitchen with Will it Waffle? and our fresh waffle iron. Triple bonus!
The respond is "YES" you can definitely waffle it, at least most things. We used a bunch of the ideas from this book. They were both a lot of fun, and mostly successful. There is always some trial and error, but that is most of the fun. This book would be a amazing bonus to anyone you know that is a huge waffle fanatic.
Amazing book, each recipe has simple instructions and pictures. I had my children each pick one so they could obtain involved and they loved it. Online recipes would have been free to look up but its always nice to have a book right in front of you...easy for the 6 and 4 year old to skim through too.
I have a waffle iron and thought this book would be amazing to give me fresh ideas. The recipes are simple to create and gave me some nice ideas on how to obtain better use out of my waffle iron.
Buy this book. Inventive and surprisingly good! I've loved everything I've tried to create so far. Once I accepted the waffle iron as a "real" kitchen tool, I never wanted to stop using it. I search myself looking for excuses to use it, and this book is the excellent opportunity for that!
"Will it Waffle" is charming, inventive, and it showcases some darn delicious food! My first go at a recipe in the book was the Waffled Migas. It's so simple, easy, and delicious it will blow you away. Shumski has done all the massive lifting -- all you have to do is obtain your waffle iron out of the back of the pantry, dust it off, and obtain to cooking. You don't have to buy a fancy-schmancy one, either (although I must confess I'm thinking about getting another waffle iron to have both kinds -- Belgian and "regular" -- in my kitchen.) It's excellent for small-batch cooking and with his included hints and techniques, there's very small cleanup. The only drawback to this book that I can see is that I want I'd thought of it, first!
Three very amazing e first takes put in Boston/New York and concerns Piper Baker and Barrett Maddox, Duke of Manchester. This is a quick paced story and has plenty of action. The second story is set in England and the main characters are Rose, an immature lady and Alexander Cross, a duke who is scarred due to his time in the war. Both have to learn to trust each other. There is a villain that appears on the scene. We also catch with the characters from the first book. The third book has Isabella Maddox’s father preparing to give a lumber contract to the person who she marries and he has gathered several suitors to his home. There follows some amusing banter between the siblings and friends. Unfortunately the suitor who Isla feels down to isn’t interested in marriage. This was a very entertaining story, set near the borders of Scotland. All the stories are enjoyable and have elements of romance and danger. All provide a very amazing read. I was given a copy and have voluntarily and honestly reviewed it. However I have purchased all three books separately.
A Unbelievable Trilogy from Tammy Andresen on the Taming the Heart Series. Each story can be read as a standalone, but it is always amazing to see old characters from previous books as you progress. I would highly recommend this series or any books by Tammy Andresen!!Book 1 Taming a Duke's Restless HeartAnother heartfelt story by Tammy Andresen that pulls you in from page one.

No man is willing to be bested by a willful woman. To secure the family business her father has plans to sweeten the deal by offering Isla's hand in marriage.

Tammy Andresen really has the reader hooked in the story until the latest page is ceived an ARC from the author for my honest review, all opinions are voluntary and my own.
A unbelievable collection of the first 3 books in the Taming the Heart series. You will also obtain a glimpse into the next generation in the gift material which is a story releasing in the Fall of 2018.I have read all these books as singles. Can't go wrong with any of themTaming a Duke's Reckless Heart (book 1)I was hooked from page one. Felt the passion, the chemistry, wanted them together. I loved the Duke, especially when he ignores all social rules. He was a total goner over Piper, super protective, and such a scowler and growler. Piper was so worried over finances and her sick mother, but she was also a fun character. She’s strong, loyal, and never backed down from the Duke. As with any amazing romance there’s some drama which added to the intrigue. Solid plot, well-developed characters that are fun and interesting. The secondary characters were a mixture of wonderful. Totally enjoyable read. (originally reviewed 10/4/17)Taming a Duke’s Wild Rose (book 2)Taming a Duke’s Wild Rose tells of a romance from the mid 1800’s. Both main characters grow throughout the storyline. I felt the heartbreak they suffered with their trust problems – the hero, a recluse who is suffering emotionally from physical scars and doubting anyone could love him and the heroine who has fallen for dishonorable men in the past and fears she has chosen the wrong man again. Well-written and intriguing with developed characters. Powerful characters create a amazing story and this one has them including the damsel in distress who doesn’t back down when faced with danger (she can pick locks after all!). Thoroughly enjoyed it. Has drama, action, humor, and amazing chemistry between the characters. Another champion from Tammy Andresen. (originally reviewed 11/1/16)Taming a Lairds Wild Lady (book 3)Different female hero for this era which I enjoyed. Elizabeth is strong, wild, amazing at a lot of things, knows the land, is a tomboy, and most of all, not dependent on a man. Gavin is the ideal match for her. The take turns protecting and saving each other. Another plus was how the Maddox siblings helped each other, loved each other, and looked out for one another. A quick, enjoyable read that had a bit of everything: romance, action, a villain, and chemistry. I was hooked until the latest page. A amazing addition to the Taming of the Heart series. (originally reviewed 1/17/17)
I loved all 3 books - In the first Piper, a single female basically without cash or title needs to marry as the only respond to her problems. Duke, Barrett Maddox, rescues Piper from a group of thieves. Piper has other interested men but she fall for the only one she cannot have, Barrett Maddox. He agrees to support her search a husband in Fresh York Town society but can he resist the auburn haired lady? Book 2 finds Rose falling in love (which she does easily) with Carl, a soldier & trying to do as her father wants by accepting an arranged marriage to a Duke, Alex Cross. Carl, the soldier only wanted her land & cash & Alex, the Duke (scarred from the war) pretended to be a mate of her father's to test & victory Rose's love for him with his scars & not for cash & title. Will the amazing Duke victory Rose over Carl's attempts? The final Book 3 is based around Isla, who dislikes the Ton & all their rules & much prefers the adventures of riding astride her horse & other pursuits geared toward the men of her time. The character is a Scottish Laird, Gavin Campbell who's wife is deceased & during the marriage she spent so much cash he found himself near financial ruin. This was my favorite book of the three - will Isla & Gavin obtain past her hoyden ways & his revulsion towards marriage? Highly recommend the series - the characters are witty & romantic - the stories are full of suspense, romance & fun!

The suitor would victory a contract to supply lumber to her family's ship building business. Isla feel like she is being auctioned off. Isla is a free spirt, more at home riding her horse at a full gallop across the fields than strapped into a corset in the ballrooms of London.

Gavin thinks Isla will be just like her and wars his attraction to her. He quickly begins to see that she is not like other woman and starts to war to victory her over.I won't give away everything but Gavin and Isla must war to be together and overcome an obstacle that threatens Isla's safety.Tammy Andersen has made wonderfully rich characters that you route for throughout the is collection is a unbelievable set for everyone. Each story can be read as a stand-alone but has characters that cross over.

Not one of her admirers capture her affections, until she met Barrett Maddox, Duke of Manchester. Barrett is equally smitten but could not offer her marriage as he's betrothed to another.

His deceased wife caused him grief, he's fairly close to a financial ruin. But the willful Isla is the exact opposite of his first wife and they both can't ignore the fact that they need each other in more ways than om Fresh York to Scotland, these are the first three stories in the series. The characters are interesting. Good, lovely reads.I received a complimentary copy. This is my honest review.
These three books are some of my absolutely favorite historical romance books, but I have to say that I think Piper and Barrett's story is my favorite. Such a attractive story about a woman in need of a husband and a man who thinks he can't have her, but can't seem to stay away from her at the same time. He goes versus societal norms and basically does what he wants. If anything, these three stories present that falling in love is no simple task, especially with this family. The men are hard headed and yet honorable protectors while the women are powerful willed and capable. Each story is unique, but those characteristics tend to stick around through the books and I like that. The men are definitely swoon-worthy!
Can not sign in. Will not accept email address & I have had a n acc online for years. Thought this would be easier. Uninstall & will be using the www service as always. Apps are supposed to simply things not create things more complicated. Would give 00 if possible.
Why is this even on the application store? It's an INTERNAL application for Duke energy itself, not the general public, and should be delivered via apk in some fashion, not some outwards-facing application store. And to create matters worse, there appears to be NO other application for Duke customers to use to obtain things like outage info.
Lovely and original game. I love the concept but maybe for each hero has their own weapons instead. I hope so cause that will create things a wholelot various compared to now where you can obtain everyones weapon from one characyer you are using and from several other characters you own. Amazing game!
