Callie Hutton never fails to bring to the pages characters that are entertaining to read. Ms Hutton is my go-to-author for historical romance for this reason. Another great read in the Lords And Ladies In Love series.

About Denying The Duke by Callie Hutton
Four years ago, Alex, a second son, had planned a life together with Lady Patience. However, when Patience was betrothed to his brother, the heir, Alex left his family’s estate and joined the military.
Alex returns to assume the title Duke of Bedford when his brother unexpectedly dies. He is unprepared for both his new responsibilities and the reunion with Patience. The horrors of war are a heavy burden, and when he learns that Patience never married his brother, he is stunned.
Patience withstood the bullying of her fiancé and her father for four long years. She refuses to marry Alex just because he’s the duke, especially if he no longer loves her. How would that be better than what she has already endured? Promises made in their youth are not enough to overcome the changes life has wrought for them but love can grow and transform, if only Patience could believe that.
Each book in the Lords and Ladies in Love series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.
