    I liked the story. It was well plotted and had funny bits. The first dance and the whole sex room bit is funny and very well written. The story moves at a nice clip. This builds nicely on the prior novel's villian/spy story. Drew is a great bumbling hero who has no idea what is happeni...

    Read 12 chapters I've been a fan of Lenora Bell's, and I'll continue to be I have no doubt. However, sadly, One Fine Duke isn't working for me. It's trying for comedy, I believe, but it's missing the mark a bit, largely due to the hero's past trauma. Rather than being madcap and hum...

    Sometimes what we longed for was not what was best or what we ended up with. Such was the case for Miss Mina Penny. Having grown up sheltered, she wanted adventure, to be a spy like her parents had been and her uncle was now. She had listened and learned through the years and she knew ...

    Review originally posted at https://smexybooks.com/2019/07/angela... This is probably my favorite book by this author, and I?ve been following her since her debut. It was a fun, fast read with a lovely slow burn romance and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute I spent reading. Th...

    Miss Mina Penny had it all planned out. Kiss the secret spy employed by her over-protective Uncle. Convince him to marry her, live exciting life of intrigue and travel, finally free of the walls that have held her confined her entire life. What Mina's plan wasn't counting on was the...

    1.5 stars. This was all desire and no romance for me. I didn't understand the motivations of either character (and felt they kept changing), didn't think the leads were a good fit, and thought the spy/thrilled backplot was silly and predictable. I'm bummed. I think Lenora Bell is not m...

    I fell in love with Lenora Bell's writing when I read her Disgraceful Dukes series. I had no idea she had a new series out, so I jumped at the chance to read One Fine Duke! Mina Penny knows she must find herself a husband, and one of the Dukes her uncle picks out for her is not happ...

    "One Fine Duke" is the first book I've ever read by Lenora Bell, but it certainly won't be the last. I have heard good things about Ms. Bell's writing before and, based on how much I enjoyed this book, I wish I had picked one up sooner. Many of the previous stories I've read that fe...

    Reviewed on my blog, Becky on Books, on 7/19/19. Mina's story! I really enjoyed the relationship between Drew and Mina--whether they were getting along or not, their chemistry was great and their banter was a lot of fun. Ms. Bell put them in a lot of ridiculous situations--many w...

    A delectable page-turner that is reminiscent of Austen?s famous wit and humor! I absolutely adored this sparkling read! Mina Penny has been sheltered in the countryside for much of her life, and when she finally gets the chance to break free and attend her very first Season in London...

    One Fine Duke has everything you?re looking for in a summer read. A heroine who wants freedom and adventure, and a reformed rake looking for a sturdy country bride with an interest in crop rotation. Wait, what? Don?t worry, it totally works. Lady Wilhemina ?Mina? Penny is th...

    This was my first book from Lenora Bell and it definitely won't be my last! I adored Mina, Drew, and their story. Mina is headstrong young woman who wants the freedom and adventure she never had growing up under her overprotective uncle. Drew suffers from PTSD from when he was kidnappe...

    This is Book 3 in The School for Dukes Series. I am a big fan of Lenora's books. I don't know how I missed the first two books in this Series. I really enjoyed this story, read it in one day, could not put it down. I was hooked from the first sentence "Stop the carriage!" roared Andrew...

    I liked this better than For the Duke?s Eyes Only but not as much as I liked What a Difference a Duke Makes. I found myself laughing loads of times throughout reading this title. Lenora Bell?s humor is delightful and comes when you least expect it. There was some instalust ...

    Finally ! I have read a book by Mrs Lenora Bell, as I say, too many talented authors and so few hours in a day. I probably might have an other book lost somewhere on my kindle shelves, but there nothing better for me than a new release to get an opportunity to read an author?s work...

    One Fine Duke was a delight to read, with two main characters who on the surface are as different as night and day. But they recognize in each other a match to each other?s flames. Miss Mina Penny is a force of nature that has been sheltered by her guardian, who has now decided t...

    This book was absolutely exceptional! I have enjoyed the author's books in the past, and was really hoping that this would continue in that same vein. I was pleasantly surprised with this amazing historical romance. One Fine Duke is the best historical romance of 2019, hands down. Not ...

    I received an ARC of this book to read through Edelweiss+ in exchange for a fair review. One Fine Duke by Lenora Bell is the 3rd book in her The School for Dukes Trilogy. It can be read as a standalone but I very much enjoyed the first two books and recommend reading them all. After he...

    Another winner from Lenora Bell. I don't think it can beat out For the Duke's Eyes Only as my favorite, but it was close. Lots of hilarious scenes, a dash of intrigue, and a sexy romance. ...

    4.5 stars This was a fun endearing romance read for me. I enjoyed that spark that Mina and Drew have together. I love the daisies in the story, it has an epilogue, and they had a steamy romance. The chair scene was a hoot! Also, loved the Ladies Knitting club. Code Alpha! LOL I really ...
