BOOK REVIEW- TAMING A DUKE'S WILD ROSE by Tammy Andresen
Since the death of her mother, Lady Rose Wentworth has dreamed of a hero. A knight or soldier who sweeps her off her feet and heals the scars she hides within. These fantasies cloud her judgement when it comes to a man’s true nature and every suitor she pines for proves to be less than honorable. But Rose is convinced she has finally found a true hero in the soldier, Carl Lundberg.
Fearing for Rose’s future, her father arranges a match with the scarred duke. Powerful and rich beyond reason, Lord Wentworth is convinced this is the man who can provide a real future for his daughter. But Rose knows better, or so she thinks. Now she is caught between two men, one handsome and dashing, the other scarred but intriguing none-the-less. As each vies for her hand, Rose finds it more difficult to discern whose intentions are pure.
The more Rose is entangled in the web of love and marriage the more she questions which man has the true heart and who can unlock hers. AMAZON 3.5 STARS
Rose was beautiful and kind of flaky. Because of her youth, she hadn't really found herself yet. She was kind of flitting from one handsome man to another because no one had really engaged her heart yet. Deep down though, Rose had a good heart and that made her easier to like. Even though she had been overprotected by her father, she still was able to get into trouble from time to time. With her head filled with images of fantasy heroes, Carl was quickly becoming one of those troubles.
It was a sweet, mysterious way that Rose first meet, Alex, the scarred duke. It was charming and a good way to make her more curious. Alex was an honorable man who didn't want to force Rose to marry him, even though he was falling deeper and deeper for her. He wanted her to have a choice. He hoped she chose him.
There were a few things towards the end that didn't make any logical sense . Is the time sequence off in my memory of the story. Isn't it to way to think that Rose could be pregnant? And since Alex and Rose had sex at least once, why would he let her go without thinking that she could be carrying his child? And he would be loosing her and his child?
There will be a H.E.A. but Rose is going to have to fight for it.
