One Duke Down

St. Martin’s. (Rogues to Lovers, Bk. 2). Jan. 2023. 352p. ISBN 9781250793935. pap. $8.99. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Poppy Summers has found some interesting things in her fishing nets, but nothing as exciting as the unconscious man she finds—half-clothed, injured, and still gorgeously handsome. She brings him clothes and food, tends to his wounds, and drags him to her secret shelter where he can recover. The man, Andrew Keane the Duke of Hawking, awakens to the knowledge that someone wants him dead, has tried to kill him, in fact, and that the woman caring for him is most intriguing—and beautiful. Keane finds himself drawn to her auburn curls and quick smile and sets out to make Poppy his—despite the difference in their stations. But Bellehaven Bay doesn’t hold secrets for long, and the missing Duke must reappear, leaving him wondering if they can overcome the divide of his title and more importantly, find his foe before he strikes again. The latest in Bennett’s “Rogues to Lovers” series, after Girls Before Earls, is a welcome addition to this Regency series, complete with dashing dukes, forbidden passion, and murderous subplots. Fans of the series will enjoy another trip to Bellehaven Bay.
