When You Wish Upon a Duke by Isabella Bradford

In a sparkling new series filled with irresistible charm and sizzling romance, award-winning author Isabella Bradford introduces us to the eldest of three Wylder sisters—unruly country girls whose passion for life leaves their London suitors breathless.

Raised in the Dorset countryside, Lady Charlotte Wylder doesn’t care one bit about well-bred decorum. The dark-haired, blue-eyed beauty would rather ride a horse than attend a stuffy ball. So when Charlotte learns that she is to leave immediately for London to wed the Duke of Marchbourne, a perfect model of aristocratic propriety, she is less than enchanted with her arranged marriage.

But to her delight, their first encounters are brazenly flirtatious, and their wedding night burns with passion. March’s broad shoulders and dark countenance make Charlotte want to rip every button off his waistcoast. She may even be falling in love with her new husband. Yet whenever their desire boils over, March reluctantly pushes Charlotte away. Will past secrets and present misunderstandings mire their marriage in scandal, or serve to strengthen a bond that is destined to last a lifetime?

My thoughts:


A great start to a new series.  Charlotte is the oldest of the  Wylder sisters.  Before her father passed away he arranged for Charlotte to marry The Duke of Marchbourne.  Charlotte isn’t too happy about finding this out, but she knows she must go with it.  She is more of a tomboy climbing trees type of girl then one of the women of the Ton.  On their first meeting The Duke thinks he has to help Charlotte out of a tree.  After they finally get the cat down they both fall and land on each other.  The love starts there for Charlotte.

The story is cute and a nice romance.  The characters of Charlotte and March work really well together you want their marriage to succeed no matter what.  I great romance.
