Early Review: Addicted to the Duke by Bronwen Evans

May 10, 2017

Alexander Sylvester Bracken, Duke of Bedford, has a mission: sail to the Mediterranean and track down Lady Hestia Cary’s missing father. It is a straightforward task, but for two rather vexing complications. First, the sea holds painful memories; second, for her own safety, Hestia is to accompany him. As Alex battles the demons of his past, he must also resist Hestia’s surprisingly skillful attempts at seduction. After all, Alex has sworn to leave her untouched, and he intends to honor that vow—until he can properly ask the Earl’s blessing.

Ever since His Grace rescued Hestia from the arms of a Turkish pirate six long years ago, her heart has belonged to Alex. So when he agrees to help find her father, Hestia is thrilled. Although Alex tries to hide it, there’s passion in his eyes—and a frisson of desire in the air—whenever they meet. On board ship, miles from home, Alex won’t be able to deny her any longer. But with scoundrels lying in wait, she may not live to tell the tale of her conquest.



Edgy! Perversely pleasurable! A perfect example of a historical romance taking you on a journey and leaving you breathless. Evans doesn't miss a note in this thrilling historical romance. From start to finish readers will be on edge. Strong, deeply scarred characters come to life in this passionate exploration of love and salvation.  Alex will leave his mark! Addicted to the Duke indeed! I can not wait to read more in the Imperfect Lords series.
