Every Duke Has His Day

St. Martin’s Griffin. Sept. 2023. 320p. ISBN 9781250842541. pap. $18. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
The Duke of Woriton, Michael Bromley, knows it all when it comes to the science of chemistry. Romantic chemistry, on the other hand, is a mystery, as he prefers to spend his days with beakers rather than in ballrooms. When a dog-sitting snafu results in more of a meet-catastrophe than a meet-cute, Michael is thrust into the path of Elizabeth Dockering, society’s sought-after—and in his opinion, self-obsessed—diamond darling. Though the two are initially at odds, they must join forces when their prized poodles are stolen, and Michael finds that perhaps love is more like science than he thought, at least when it comes to opposites attracting. Enoch (Something in the Heir) presents a heartwarming and humorous historical romance. The likable lovers share more witticisms than wantonness on the page, and their playful partnership is endearing and engaging. The dual dog-napper narrative has its own tender twosome as well. Lush detail and delightful banter round out the reading experience.
VERDICT This book will appeal to readers seeking a fast-paced, flirtatious Regency romance full of crooks and canines. Recommended for fans of Virginia Heath, Martha Waters, and Maya Rodale.
