Special Feature: 10 Rules for Marrying a Duke by Michelle McLean

Love is in the air this month with it being Valentine’s Day and I typically lean toward more romances during the month of February! Earlier this year I really focused on reading more contemporary romances and cowboy romances, all of which were great but historical romances have my heart. There is just something that works so well in historical romances for me. I think part of it is that it feels like such a more refined era with wooing being more thought out and intentional. I just love historical romances.

Naturally I always keep my ear to the ground for new historical romances and this one popped up on my radar a few months ago. I haven’t read Michelle McLean before but I see she has written several historical romances and most have been really well received by readers! She is a USA Today Best Selling Author for a reason and that’s what made me excited about this one!

McLean has written three series that have different flavors, The MacGregor Lairds which appears to be a Highlander romance series, The Gunslinger series that looks like a historical cowboy romance series, and the Blood Blade Sisters series which seems like a buccaneer romance series. This latest novel focuses on a Duke so clearly McLean has a lot of range in her romance novels which makes me so excited to check this one out! If you love historical romances, I think you are going to enjoy this steamy novel!

Summary

Publisher: Entangled Amara

Release Date: 12/6/2021

Bookish Arabella Bromley never gave a fig for society’s rules—until her sister ran off with a man below her station. Now Arabella is desperate to restore her family’s ruined reputation to favor amongst the ton. She’ll have to marry quickly and well. But in order to carry off her plan, Arabella needs a duke… and she has just the rakish fellow in mind. 

The Duke of Whittsley has an ungentlemanly tendency to disregard the rules. Unfortunately, a sense of mischief doesn’t excuse a high-ranking noble from family duty—especially where it concerns producing a son. And that’s where he can’t quite resist Arabella’s distinctly outrageous plan: if he saves her family, she’ll give him an heir. 

Now the deal’s been struck. They have one year to achieve their goals and ten iron-clad rules to keep them on track. And the only thing that can ruin their plan is the one thing they never planned on: love.
