A REPUTATION AT RISKWhat woman in her right mind would say no to marrying the dashing Duke of Sedgemoor? Miss Penelope Thorne, that's who. She's known Camden Rothermere since they were children-and she also knows she'd bring nothing but scandal to his name.
Cam can hardly believe Penelope turned down his proposal. But if she wants to run off to the Continent and set the rumor mill ablaze, he can't stop her. Then her brother's dying request sends him to bring home the one woman he thought he'd finally gotten over.
The only way they'll both get back to London without their reputations in tatters is to pretend they're married during the journey. That means kissing like they mean it and even sharing a bed-until it becomes hard to tell where the game ends and true desire begins . . .
When I picked this one up, I discovered that this was not only one love story, but two. It's primarily one love story, but there's also a second one in play at the same time, which is equally as sweet. And that makes this one a very awesome read--double the love!
You'll find that you'll come to adore both Cam and Pen, and Harry and Sophie. As they journey, they face ups and downs, but learn how to make it through. The love is obvious for both pairs, but it takes a long time for them to get on the same page. When they do... glorious kisses and wonderful romantic moments.
What a Duke Dares is a very well-written and sweet love story. You can't help but enjoy the ride in this historical romance. I would very much like to try out more of Anna Campbell's books sometime.
