The Wicked Ways of a Duke by Laura Lee Guhrke

Good Reads Description:

She thought she was the luckiest woman in London . . .

Surviving on a seamstress' income and a steady stream of fantasies, Prudence Bosworth has always longed for love and romance. Then she inherits a fortune from the father she's never seen, with the stipulation that she wed in one year. Prudence is determined to marry for true love, and after seeing firsthand the splendid chivalry of a certain duke, only one man will do . . .

Rhys de Winter, the Duke of St. Cyres, hides his cynicism behind a quick wit and an even quicker smile. He must marry an heiress, and as luck would have it, the pretty little seamstress-turned-heiress is exactly what he needs. But he never expected to fall for Prudence, and when his shocking deception is revealed, he will stop at nothing to win her back . . . even if it means renouncing every last one of his wicked ways.

My Rating: 3 Stars out of 5

My Review:
I liked seeing the characters from the first Girl Bachelors book and I enjoyed the two main characters personalities. I thought Prudence's reaction to Rhys deception was realistic however I thought the ending rushed a bit and a bit unrealistic happy and 'perfect'. I enjoyed the story as a whole but not as much as the first Girl Bachelors book so I gave it a 3 out of 5 because of the little things that I though hindered full enjoyment of the story as a whole.
