In Call Me Duchess by Maggie Dove, young Marguerite and her sisters are suddenly found destitute because of her father’s gambling habit. The three sisters embark on a journey to London at the height of the “London Season”. They have four months to find husbands or they will become governesses. Marguerite has her heart on becoming the Duchess of Wallingford. Will she marry for money or will some other man hold the key to her heart.
I have been reading romances since I was thirteen years old, and I have seen a lot of historical romances where the woman would be destitute if she didn’t marry a wealthy man. However, Ms. Dove writes one very different and it is like a fresh breeze. I give her kudos for writing such an enjoyable book.
