Review: A Duke in the Night (Devils of Dover #1) by Kelly Bowen | About That Story

A Duke in the Night (Devils of Dover #1) by Kelly Bowen 


Duke. Scoundrel. Titan of business. August Faulkner is a man of many talents, not the least of which is enticing women into his bedchamber. He's known-and reviled-for buying and selling companies, accumulating scads of money, and breaking hearts. It's a reputation he wears like a badge of honor, and one he intends to keep.

Clara Hayward, the headmistress of the Haverhall School for Young Ladies, on the other hand, is above reproach. Yet when she's reunited with August all she can think of is the way she felt in his arms as they danced a scandalous waltz ten long years ago. Even though her head knows that he is only back in her life to take over her family's business, her heart can't help but open to the very duke who could destroy it for good.


4 out of 5 stars

I really, really liked this. Awesome story! It was entertaining and sweet with great characters. This was my first time reading Kelly Bowen and it won’t be my last.

I loved Clara, who she was, and what she was trying to accomplish. She was a strong, independent woman and I liked how she held herself and encouraged others. I really liked August as well, learning his history and how protective he was of his sister. He was such a man of the times and I liked him seeing certain things in a new light and expanding his view. He and Clara were great together. There's a bit of challenge there, excellent chemistry and a building passion. I liked their verbal sparring, the challenges in front of them, and how it all played out.

There was a good introduction and I was all in. It was a great series starter. I really enjoyed the storytelling, the build and details. I thought the story had a steady pace. It was light with a bit of drama happening. Honestly, it was Clara and her attitude and what she was trying to accomplish that had me smiling through the entire thing. She was a great heroine.

I enjoyed the secondary characters introduced and the side stories happening and how it was all connected. It was just a solid story that I totally enjoyed. It's had an entertaining vibe happening. Really great read!

Complimentary copy received for honest review.
