Historical Romance Saturday: Vicky Dreiling

This our very first HRS on rather barefoot. In this feature we will highlight an Author and a book in the historical romance genre that we or one of us really like. But it is mostly about the book. It sort of like a recommendation of a really great read. And do not hesitate to leave a recommendation if you want to in our comment section or your url if you have made your own HRS.

This week I chose the Author Vicky Dreiling for this feature. You can find out more about her on goodreads or on her blog Vicky Dreiling

It was not long ago that I was introduced to this Author and I think it was a review on some blog (I can´t remember which one) that caught my eye. I thought the book sounded interesting and it really was. I really like Dreilings writing style. She writes with a lot of humour and her stories are quite lovely and not overly detailed on the sex scenes. Sometimes it can be to much but it is not in the two books I´ve read by her. I also like that we get to know both characters in the books and we get to read the guy´s point of view-

So on to the book I wanted to show you. It is the first book in the 'How to' series.......

How to Marry a Duke by Vicky Dreiling

Tristan, the Duke of Shelbourne is a man with a mission: find a wife he can tolerate as long as they both shall live. Love is not necessary--nor desired. But how to choose among a dizzying array of wealthy-yet-witless candidates? Hire London's infamously prim and proper matchmaker. Then pretend she's not the most captivating woman he's ever met...

Helping a devilish Duke create a contest to pick his perfect mate is the kind of challenge Tessa Mansfield relishes. Her methods may be scandalous, but she's determined to find the notorious bachelor more than a wife--she'll bring him true love. Yet when Tessa watches the women vie for the Duke's affections, she longs to win his heart herself. And after a stolen kiss confirms Tristan's desire, Tessa knows she has broken a matchmaker's number one rule: never fall in love with the groom.

All books in the how to series:
How to marry a duke #1
How to seduce a scoundrel #2
how to ravish a rake #3
