Imogen, Lady Maitland, has decided to dance on the wild side. After all, she's in the delicious position of being able to take a lover. A discreet male who knows just when to leave in the morning.
But Lady Maitland is still under the watchful eye of her former guardian, the wildly untamed Rafe, the Duke of Holbrook. He believes she is still in need of a "watchdog." She laughs at the idea that someone so insufferably lazy and devoted to drink can demand that she behave with propriety.
It's Rafe's long-lost brother, a man who looks precisely like the duke but with none of his degenerate edge, who interests Imogen. To Imogen, he's the shadow duke . . . the man who really should hold the title. But when Imogen agrees to accompany Gabe to a masquerade...whose masked eyes watch her with that intense look of desire? Who exactly is she dancing with? The duke or the shadow duke? Rafe . . . or Gabe?

I love the Exxes sisters series! This book didn't disappoint! It kept you guessing the whole book!
The Taming of the Duke is witty, filled with strong independent personalities, a great deal of heart and wonder in finding enduring love. The country of England and Scotland provide a foil for the intense passions, living a life tied to the land with an ever expanding family who all love and laugh in equal manner!
They just keep getting better!
I have fallen in love with Mrs. James's writing style, whit and humor. The books she writes are absolutely astounding and I have loved each of them so far. Great work Mrs. James. Please do keep up the wonderful writings you have been producing - they may keep me awake at night, but it is well worth the escape your writing provides ❤
