She is smart and so strong, with a lovable personality and she is not the dumb bimbo heroine I have been reading about in so many other novels who can’t control her vagina in front of her dude. I don’t think this was her strongest work.

Detailed Review Summary of The Duke by Gaelen Foley
The Illustrated Collection Books by J. Lord of Fire Knight Miscellany, 2 4. Knowing that Hawk had unrequited love for another Peer’s now dead wife, said evil manipulative Peer has asked Hawk to avenge her death.
It’s not just the dume that she was a prostitute doing this that bugged me.
His reputation, his position in politics, his family’s legacy relies on him to do the right thing by marrying someone within the peerage. I wasn’t expecting him to play the self-centered oblivious cad who wants his cake and eat it too. She is hard at work on her next book. You fall more in love with him, because instead of hiding behind anger or making the woman he loved crawl back to him, he owned up to his faults and finally threw caution to the wind and went with his heart instead of his head.
He was judgmental and apt to fly off the handle whenever things didn’t go the way he thought they should. Due to a series of unfortunate events, she decides to become a courtesan.
I usually don’t make this statement, but somehow all but four of my friends gave this book over four stars. And so do the love scenes, btw. But don’t get me wrong, this guy is swoon worthy too and does some very romantic things with and for Belinda. The Duke has earned a place of honor on my keepers bookshelf!
Let us find what we may find. Even though he once kissed her senseless, he can have no interest in someone like her. They make a deal that he will pay her to act as bait, and there will be no sex. Every lady loves a hero but Trevor has no interest in any of them – except for the refreshingly candid Grace.

It’s Book 1 in my bestselling children’s series, The Gryphon Chronicles pictured above. The description of the book really does not go into depth about how this happens with the heroine and I think that was why I waited awhile to begin it.
