Book 1 of The Duke’s Sons series
From bestselling author Jane Ashford comes another brand new series of sparkling Regency Romance
Life is predictable for a Duke’s first son
As eldest son of the Duke of Langford, Nathaniel Gresham sees his arranged marriage to Lady Violet Devere as just another obligation to fulfill—highly suitable, if unexciting. But as Violet sets out to transform herself from dowdy wallflower to dazzling young duchess-to-be, proper Nathaniel sets out to prove he’s a match for his new bride’s vivacity and daring.
Or so he once thought…
Oppressed by her family all her life, Lady Violet can’t wait to enjoy the freedom of being a married woman. But then Violet learns her family’s sordid secret, and she’s faced with an impossible choice—does she tell Nathaniel and risk losing him, or does she hide it and live a lie?

Romance that is worthy of fairy tale status.
I have been a skeptic about Ms. Ashford's stories. For me the few stories I have read by her have come across as emotionless. Previous characters have been cold and indecisive. I received an ARC of Heir to the Duke in exchange for an honest review. This novel surprised me a great deal. Ms. Ashford did a complete 180 with her latest novel. She created characters with emotional appeal, a story that spoke to me from the very beginning and a romance that is worthy of fairy tale status. There were a few areas with inconsistency issues but not enough to take away from the overall effect of the story.
