NOTHING LIKE A DUKE is the fourth book in Jane Ashford's The
Duke's Sons series. The first three books in the
fantastic, and Ashford did not disappoint with this new
installment. Robert is mentioned in all the previous books,
so it is wonderful to finally read his story. While, first
appearing shallow and a bit of a dandy, readers soon
discover Robert is so much more. Intelligent, caring, and
humorous he quickly becomes a hero readers will love. He is
the perfect match for the heroine, Flora, and knows when to
step in to aid her, and when to let her rescue herself.
Flora is independent, smart, and has a backstory that causes
some vulnerabilities. She knows how to rescue herself, and
learns when to ask for help. Her character has great growth
throughout the story, and her romance with Robert is
The setting, a house party in Northumberland, is charming
and pictureseque, while the escapades the guests get into
are hilarious and fun. Victoria and her brother Phillip are
especially delightful secondary characters who help to add
conflict and humor to the story. The villain is cunning and
nasty, and helps to add some excitement and danger to
NOTHING LIKE A DUKE. The plot moves along at a great pace,
and readers will never be bored with Robert and Flora's
romance. The addition of Robert's brother, Randolph, seems
to set the stage for the next book, which I can't wait to
read. NOTHING LIKE A DUKE is a filled with wit and charm,
and is a romance I highly recommend.
