Lillian and the Irresistible Duke
A reunion in Rome...sparks an affair to remember! Responsible widow Lilian Fairclough is persuaded to travel to Rome for a hard-earned break and to let down her hair! She's surprised to be reunited with passionate, cynical Italian duke Pietro Venturi. He reawakens her sensual side and intrigues her with glimpses of pain beneath his rakish surface. Enticed into a secret and temporary affair, what will happen once she returns home?

Welcome back everyone, I know I did the Wrap Up with this review still to come. But I have another review tomorrow, so I wanted to get it out without releasing stuff four days in a row. You know, give you guys a chance to see everything without it being overwhelming!

I’m not sure if I read the blurb of Miss Amelia’s Mistletoe Marquees before Jenni sent me a copy to review. Since I’ve loved everything of hers, I may have just assumed I’d like it and said I’d review her book. If I did happen to read the blurb, I’d totally forgotten about it when I signed up for today’s review.

So when I read the first like, 2 pages, of this book I instantly realised it was a sequel to Miss Amelia’s Mistletoe Marquees and then promptly realised that the series was one of a few I’ve noticed in the past few months where different authors write one book each in the series so they can be released quickly. Does anyone know where this trend is coming from? Coz I’m curious!

The consistency of the character’s personalities across multiple authors was amazing. The fact that Lillian and Millie are quite similar was great. I’m assuming a lot of work had to go into getting these kinds of facts aligning, but I’m so glad they took the time to do it!

For those that are reading multiple books in the series this means a lot. While also allowing each character to have their own unique voice and style as each book is written by someone new. Rather than feeling weird that the writing style was a bit different it was great!

It allowed me to focus more on the story I was reading rather than why they felt too different, or too similar. And I was definitely engrossed in the story! Damn all those times I had to stop reading to get off a plane, to get ready for my new puppy and to have to go to the gym. Those times sucked!

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this review, as I said I have another review tomorrow for Getting Dirty by Rachael Stewart. Continue to read further down to find out about the author and any extra giveaways available.

Author Bio

When Virginia Heath was a little girl it took her ages to fall asleep, so she made up stories in her head to help pass the time while she was staring at the ceiling. As she got older, the stories became more complicated, sometimes taking weeks to get to the happy ending. Then one day, she decided to embrace the insomnia and start writing them down. Despite that, it still takes her forever to fall asleep.
