Who Wants To Marry a Duke

Zebra: Kensington. (Duke Dynasty, Bk. 3). Sept. 2020. 352p. ISBN 9781420148572. pap. $7.99. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Olivia Norley only intended to use her chemistry knowledge to help Marlowe Drake, the Duke of Thornstock, remove a stain from his waistcoat, not trap him into marriage. Finding out her stepmother blackmailed the duke into proposing only confirmed Olivia’s decision never to marry and instead further her studies. Years later, Olivia and Thorn are drawn back together, as Olivia’s expertise is called on by Thorn’s half-brother, Grey, to help solve a troubling family mystery. With this third installment of the “Duke Dynasty” series (after The Bachelor), veteran author Jeffries continues but does not resolve a sprawling intrigue that may leave new readers wishing they’d started with the first in the series, Project Duchess.
VERDICT Olivia’s scientific gifts will draw in and delight fans of bluestocking romances, such as Tessa Dare’s A Week To Be Wicked, still this classic Regency series will be most appreciated if read in order.
