Veronica Reviews: WHEN A DUCHESS SAYS I DO by Grace Burrowes
When A Duchess Says I Do
Duncan Wentworth has been given a task of turning a neglected estate into a profitable one within a year. While venturing out on his grounds, he comes across a poacher who is determined to keep his game and eliminate the witness.
Matilda Wakefield has been on the run and with the cold of winter setting in, has been hiding in the gatehouse of Wentworth’s estate. Seeing that there is trouble brewing, she steps out of hiding and with the help of her pistol, saves Duncan.
Seeing the waif-like appearance of Matilda, Duncan is determined to offer assistance. Taking her back to his home, he offers her a hot meal as well as employment to be his secretary. What starts as a means to help a damsel in distress, turns into an adventure of intrigue and love.
While I did sometimes lose focus on the actual plot of the story, I did find the building trust, friendship and romance between Duncan and Matilda charming. This story is like curling up with a warm blanket and enjoying the moment. When a Duchess Says I Do is an enjoyable read by Grace Burrowes that I would recommend to fans of this genre.
