What a Difference a Duke Makes (School for Dukes, #1) Read Online Free - Wanted: Governess for duke's unruly children
Edgar Rochester, Duke of Banksford, is one of the wealthiest, most powerful men in England, but when it comes to raising twins alone, he knows he needs help. The only problem is the children have chased away half the governesses in London. Until the clever, bold, and far-too-enticing Miss Mari Perkins arrives.
Lost: One heart to an arrogant duke
Mari knows how to wrap even the most rebellious children around her finger. But their demanding, wickedly handsome father? He won't be quite so easy to control. And there's something else she can't seem to command. Her heart. The foolish thing beats so wildly every time the duke is near.
Found: A forbidden passion neither can deny
As his employee, Mari is strictly off-limits. But what if she's the one breaking all his rules? In the game of governess versus duke, how can Edgar maintain his defenses when the only thing he wants to do is let the tempting beauty win?

READ MY REVIEW ON THE BLOG
I used to read a lot of Historical Romance but stopped because sometimes even a good thing can become too much. I'd gorged myself on HR and it started to bore me. A couple years later the books I read are so diverse that I savor each HR even if it's not a complete winne...

This is a fun, easy, unputdownable read. It's so enjoyable I finished it in only a couple of hours. The characters are engaging, from Edgar and Mari to India and Ravenwood, to the children, to the servants and tradesmen. There is an element of inside joke with the duke and governess pairing and I...

I love Mari (rhymes with starry). She's this perfect blend of Mary Poppins and Anne Shirley, and I want her to be my new best friend. Lenora Bell performs magic with every novel, and I love how she weaves elements from books and movies in pop culture into her Regency romance setting. Bell said sh...

This was just ridiculous. (I read the book because it was available at the library and there had been an interesting review/comments at SBTB.) First complaint, why on earth would the author pilfer from Jane Eyre? She had a good premise: country girl goes to London to begin a job as a nurse maid,...

I have never read anything from this author, but I really liked the synopsis, so I figured why not try it.
I liked Mari and Edgar well enough. They’re both good people, smart, and they have excellent banter. The kids were pretty cute and I enjoyed their interactions with everyone. And Edgar’s sis...

Lenora Bell has easily become one of my favorite historical romance authors. Her stories are empowering, charming, and have the perfect balance of romance and real-life-issues. What a Difference a Duke Makes was another fantastic new novel from her – I was delighted through and through.

"It was a desperate gamble. It was also her best hope at the moment."
FINAL DECISION: I was disappointed in this one as the hero didn't seem heroic to me but rather a milquetoast who was dominated and dictated to by the heroine.
THE STORY: Mari Perkins is desperate when she arrives in London, has h...
