General Mark Grimaldi has sacrificed everything for his military career, working his way through the ranks without the benefit of a nobleman’s title. Now, his years of dedication are about to pay off—with an offer for a prestigious promotion to Home Secretary. There’s only one condition: Mark must be married. Aside from the small matter of not actually wanting to be wed, Mark faces another troubling problem: he already has a wife.
Nicole Huntington Grimaldi has spent ten contented years in France without her husband—and without regret. When Mark asks her to return to London and play the part of his beloved wife, she sees her chance. But neither of them is prepared for news that will throw Mark’s future into chaos…nor the undeniable desire they’ve rekindled. Maybe happily-ever-after can happen the second time around in A Duke Like No Other, the next Regency romance from Valerie Bowman.
As always first and foremost goes to St. Martin’s Press and Netgalley for providing us with a copy of this book so that we could bring you this review.
Now we all know I love my second chance love books. And how could I not love this particular second chance. The fact that they were already married and all Nicole wanted was to have a child was awesome. Mark had to work hard to be able to provide his wife with what she wanted and to get what he wants. But not only that his wife helps him solve something that he is reluctant to but she also helps him see that he is deserving of many things that are coming to him.
