The Wicked Ways of a Dukeby Laura Lee Guhrke

Seamstress Prudence Bosworth is a 28 year old “girl-bachelor” in 1894. She longs for an exciting life of wealth and romance. An inheritance from a distant relative gives her extreme wealth. The only stipulation is that she has to marry within a year or forfeit the money. When she met the Duke of St. Cyres it seems the her dream of romance will also come true.

Rhys De Winter, the Duke of St. Cyres is broke. The only way he can avoid bankruptcy is to marry an heiress. But St. Cyres is as wicked as they come. He lives only for himself and no one else. Can he find someone to marry him and save his estates?

This was a good book, but I didn’t like Rhys De Winter at all. His character was deceiving and selfish. By the end of the book, I felt I understood why he was this way, but I still didn’t like him. The story was great and I think if St. Cyres had been a lovable character the book wouldn’t have been as good.
