A Duchess in the Dark

A Duchess in the Dark - Kate McKinley Daphne Hayward is convinced that Edward loves her and believes that in order to get him to purpose she must seduce him. Than we have Ashton Fitzgerald, Earl of Claymore; who we are lead to believe is a ladies man with women falling for him left, right and centre. When Daphne mistakes his room as Edwards, her plan starts to crumble.

I enjoyed reading this! I loved the plot, mistaken identity and romance. And Daphne and Ashton are likeable characters that had me giggling at the beginning. While this was well written, I only wish this were a novel instead of a novella. There’s a lot more that could have been said about Ashton and Daphne, for instance; when they first meet each other, also I would like to have learned more about Edward. Basically this novella has the perfect outline and characters to be a full novel and sadly it’s only a novella. While at times predictable, A Duchess in the Dark was still an entertaining fast read.

My rating: ★★★.5/5
