Love is destined to find her…
Dainy doesn’t know that she is the lost Duchess of Jordinia, believed to have been assassinated fifteen years ago. Nor does she know that her uncle has implemented an illegal contest to seek her, offering her marriage hand as the reward!
Though at odds, three clashing rivals – including a noble giant, a forest dweller and a thieving rake – voyage together by woodland, prairie and sea to recover the lost royal, notwithstanding the assassins and spies at their tail. Soon, young Dainy is swept into a comically complex romantic quadrangle as each suitor competes to capture her heart.
Charmingly romantic and bursting with political intrigue, startling twists and vivid characters, readers of romance and fantasy alike will adore this original yet timeless tale of swashbuckling adventure and unlikely love.
The Duchess Quest was a compelling story from beginning to end, combining some great political elements with well crafted characters. Dainy has no idea how deadly her history was, or what’s ahead of her, but C.K. Brooke does an incredible job of telling her story, in a book that will connect with readers of many genres.
There are a lot of characters involved in this story, and the POV switches often, so it took me a while to really feel like I knew what was going on, but once I was full involved in the story, I couldn’t put it down. This wasn’t a quick read by any stretch, but the pacing was wonderfully maintained as the story and the world continued to build on itself.
Very well done!
