I just love the idea of TBT, but haven’t really used it in any capacity since all the old pictures of me are…well..horrible. So I thought I would do it with book reviews.
The Tattooed Duke is in a series I just love by an author I always am on the lookout for in a genre I was born to be in. And if I remember correctly the sexual tension in this book just makes my heart melt!
And before I forget, please make a small donation to my charity on the left hand side of this blog. It’s my own small way of giving back to these animals who have done everything they can to get in our hearts and yet most people in this world just abandon them every day. The organization is based in Los Angles and most of the animals are pitbulls who have gotten a very bad rap.

undercover Writing Girl who’s been exposing the Duke’s most intimate
secrets to the world. And now I’ve gone and complicated everything by
falling in love with him. Passion and deception have never been so
delicious, but now the truth could destroy everything. This is more than
a conflict of interest. It’s a seduction where love itself hangs in the

seems Eliza has found the perfect story for her stable employment. Why, all she has to do is to find a way to
gain employment as a maid in the Duke’s house and report on his daily
dealings. Getting employment was the
easy part since not one female wanted to become a maid in the wicked Wycliff
house, not when it was said that the past lord’s had a penchant for their
maids. The hard part would be to keep
her mind on getting the story and not fall for the resident lord who seemed so
much different than what his appearance was letting on.
Duke was a delightful read; one that I feel sure will be a keeper on anyone’s
shelf. Eliza and Sebastian are wickedly endearing and it was a delight to
partake in their engaging battle of wills when Sebastian learns of Eliza’s
treachery. Rodale has written yet
another captivating story in this series of hijicks and laughter. I cannot wait for Annabelle’s love story.
