Veronica Reviews: THE DUKE IS BUT A DREAM by Anna Bennett

The Duke is but a Dream 
(Debutante Diaries #2)
Anna Bennett

5 Stars
“I will never have enough of you…If we stayed just like this for a hundred years, it would feel too short.”

Lily Hartley, along with her sister and dearest friend, has been secretly writing a column in the local paper—The Debutante’s Revenge.  The column offers advice to the ladies of the ton that may be seeking out their future husband.  Disguised as a young lad, Lily drops off their newest installment, but on her way home, is waylaid in a tavern skirmish.  But as luck would have it, the Duke of Stonebridge notices she is a lady in distress and comes to her rescue.  Receiving a rather large bump to the head, Lily is whisked to the Duke’s home to convalesce.  Too bad when she wakes, she has no memory of why she is there or even who she is.

Eric Nash, Duke of Stonebridge, has been in a self-imposed exile since the passing of his twin sister.  Having a drink at the local tavern, he is mesmerized by a beautiful woman that is for some odd reason dressed as a boy.  Being her savior is the least he can do, if only he knew her name.

Lily and Nash work together trying to locate her family and discover her identity…and in the process, develop a bond that surpasses the need for names, for when the heart discovers it’s other half, no name beyond Love is required.  “When I’m with you—no matter what I’m doing or where I am—I feel like I’m right where I belong.”

Oh I so enjoyed this light romantic read.  While this is the 2nd installment of Anna Bennett’s Debutante Diaries, it may be read standalone.  Lily and Nash’s HEA is everything.  “…we never know what the next day may bring.  If you’re always waiting on the future, it’s easy to miss the joy of the present.”
Sharing what I love,
