I really liked the premise of this series about an oft-married woman whose male children have each inherited a Dukedom, the first book contained a murder which was not solved and I was looking forward to the murder forming an arc over the series.
This second novel concerns the woman's daughter, Lady Gwyn Drake. She has had some kind of youthful indiscretion view spoiler [,I'm assuming she slept with him, hide spoiler ] with Captain Lionel Malet and he is blackmailing her as a result.
Malet is the sort of bounder who has previously attempted to kidnap a wealthy young woman and force her to marry him. Gwyn's brother Thorn then decides that Gwyn must be accompanied everywhere by either himself or Wolfe as protection.
At this point I struggled to understand why Thorn wouldn't just warn Malet to stay away from his sister and therefore what merit there was in Gwyn keeping her "secret".
Anyway, Gwyn and Joshua have a secret attraction but she thinks he would reject her when he finds out her "secret" and he thinks that, as a wounded marine and an illegitimate son, he isn't good enough for her, yawn.
They go to London for Gwyn's debut, she is trying to see Malet to pay him off because that always works, not! There's a lot of kissing each other because they are angry, or to prove something, or to hide their faces from saboteurs.
I had some issues with the first book in this series and I'm afraid that they were also present here, unfortunately I didn't warm to either Gwyn or Joshua and therefore what led to a low rating for the first book just led me to give up on this book instead.
What spoiled it for me was page, after page, after page of heavy petting and sexual encounters with little to no plot development.
There seemed to be no furtherance of the murder from the previous book and I found it frankly inconceivable that a young society woman could have done something which could ruin her if anyone ever found out and then continues to behave inappropriately with another man eg fondling and kissing and assignations alone.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

Ever since she and her family moved back to England from Prussia, Lady Gwyn Drake has been hiding the folly of a youthful affair in order to protect her family.
When the same former suitor comes to her family's country home to blackmail Gwyn by threatening to reveal her secret, his manhandling is quickly put to an end by the estate gamekeeper, Major Joshua Wolfe.

It is clear to Gwyn's twin brother, the Duke of Thornstock, that she needs protection during her upcoming London season, so he hires the Major to act as her bodyguard.
War hero Joshua feels he must accept the request given that Thorn and Gwyn's mother is his aunt by marriage and he hopes to use the trip to London to facilitate a meeting with the War Secretary so he can petition to return to full duty in the Royal Marines.
He takes his job protecting Gwyn seriously, but ignoring his ever growing attraction to her becomes increasingly difficult in such close proximity.
Though he knows he's beneath Gwyn socially, despite being the grandson of a duke himself, Joshua can't stop his mind wondering what a future with her might be like.
Gwyn is used to being sought only for her money and would prefer to avoid suitors both old and new, as all have been fortune hunters thus far, but with danger closing in on her, and her feelings for Joshua growing, a reckoning between them fast becomes inevitable.
I really loved this book. It was a fast read, but I couldn't put it down; it really held my attention and I was rooting for Joshua and Gwyn the whole way.
Joshua is used to rejections and snide remarks because of his ruined leg and his experiences have only enhanced the natural gruffness of his personality.
Both Gwyn and Joshua were afraid of being hurt and rejected by the other, each believing themselves unworthy of the other.
Joshua was genuinely sweet and adorable beneath his grumpy exterior and I loved him and Gwyn as a couple. At first I thought Gwyn's attitude and poor decision making would ruin it for me, but I came to understand and like her and she also grew quite a bit.
The villain was a nice addition to the story, as well as the ongoing mystery subplot flowing through this series.
I thoroughly enjoyed this one and can't wait for Thorn's story. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I love Sabrina Jeffries and her writing, so naturally I went into this expecting a lot from it! But, sadly it ended up disappointing me.
This series features the various children of a duchess who was married thrice -to different dukes- and all three of them are dead.
The Bachelor focuses on Lady Gwyn Drake, the daughter from her mother's second marriage! She's thirty years old and pretty much on the shelf, but after spending most of her years in Berlin she's back in London and she's to be presente I love Sabrina Jeffries and her writing, so naturally I went into this expecting a lot from it!
She's thirty years old and pretty much on the shelf, but after spending most of her years in Berlin she's back in London and she's to be presented at court.
But she's being blackmailed due to a mistake during her youth, which she wishes to hide from her family. Joshua Wolfe is an injured war-hero, who is currently working as the gamekeeper at her brother's estate.
When Gwyn's blackmailer comes to threaten her at the estate, Joshua intervenes and saves her, but she doesn't give him the full details on the incident.
So, when her twin brother finds out about this, he decides to hire Joshua to keep her safe during the London season.
And Joshua has his own reason for going to London, as he wants to get back to working in the Navy but his injuries have damaged his leg quite badly!
Plus, there's the attraction between him and Gwyn, though he doesn't want to immediately act on it!
The book had a really good plot and amazing potential, but I ended up hating the main characters - especially Joshua!
It had a great start and I was hooked from the first few chapters itself. In the beginning, I just saw him as a grumpy hero who is annoyed with everything due to his injury.
But, as we got to know more about him, his interactions with Gwyn really began to annoy me! Because he was basically holding Gwyn responsible her for using her "feminine wiles" on him, to attract him.
I'm not kidding! That I'm the worst sort of flirt, the worst sort of woman, who could manipulate a man by using my 'feminine wiles' to get my way?
No wonder you have no wish to marry me, if that's how you see me. And that's precisely why I have no wish to marry a suspicious fellow like you, Joshua Wolfe!
Is that it? Or is it that you simply don't like the idea of a woman like me having a say in such things as her own desires? First Malet and now the groom.
And you haven't even had your debut yet. Apparently, I'm very bad at using my feminine wiles. You saw right through them.
Gwyn is pretty tough and independent at the start, and she argues back when he comments like this, but later she doesn't really seem to mind.
She has more issues with herself and her supposed 'harlotry' than anyone else does. Atleast Joshua was decent to her in those parts!
Their relationship just had this quick jump from physical attraction to the let's-talk-about-marriage stage that I found it a little hard to believe.
The last few chapters show that the deaths of the duchess' husbands might not have been accidents at all, so I'm mildly intrigued.
I might end up checking the next book just to see how the author takes the mystery plot, but I do hope that the characters are better than the ones in this book!
Mar 18, Sarah rated it really liked it. But as a man, it's torment to be so very c 'Lady Gwyn Drake has long protected her family's reputation by hiding an imprudent affair from her youth.
I had seen this book a lot around Goodreads recently and people seemed to be really enjoying it. So when I passed it at the store a few weeks back, I picked up my own copy and I'm glad I did.
I really enjoyed this book. Plus it's a very quick read too, less than pages. I didn't really like Gwyn at first, her naivety and poor decision making were really bothering me.
But as I continued to read, the reasoning behind her actions began to seem more logical and I understood why she was making the choices she was.
Then I was really on board and was more invested in the storyline and the developing feelings between Gwyn and Joshua.
I will say though that I just didn't really see the connection between these two as much as in other books. I didn't read the first book in the series, but that did not detract from my understanding or enjoyment of this book.
But it did appear at the end of the book that a mystery is being introduced which might carry throughout the rest of the series, so I would say that the book doesn't really serve as a stand-alone.
I do believe that I will be going back to read the first in the series and look forward to the next. I will be keeping my eyes out for more books by this author.
My review : When threatened, a lady tries to take matter in hand but must do with her assigned bodyguard, a man who stirs sensations she does not want to feel I do not know if it plays the same for other readers but each time I read a Sabrina Jeffries book, I feel like I hear a different voice from the other historical romances writers.
There are few that have this effect on me and she is. I enjoyed the first glimpse I was offered last fall, why I was eager to read the full novel.
And entertaining it was. Between the barbs and quips the heroes and siblings throw at each other, the hunt for the villain and the up and down in the romance, I spend quite enjoyable hours.
Gwyn is haunted by a mistake she made as a young woman, while it is not openly told until later in the story, it is easily guessed. It hold her back to accept anyone, why she readily dismisses even Joshua because she sees herself as not worthy.
Plus she is attracted to Joshua but she is very sure he will never be able to forgive her youth mistake. Joshua suffers from PTSD, crippled during a naval ambush, he came close to loose more than his leg, after months of battle for his life, he retired in the countryside, seing himself as worthless because now he needs a walking stick to keep him upright.
Their romance is one of winning each other trust, and there lies the main problem, they are wary of others and they not easily confide in others.
Yet trusting the other will have to be followed by having faith in their own value to believe in a future together.
I was granted an advance copy through Netgalley by the publisher Kensington, I had already preordered my own.

This book is a good addition to the Duke Dynasty series. I enjoyed it very much. I think Ms. Jeffries did a good job with them, and I adored the early parts with Joshua as Gwyn's bodyguard.
I didn't really feel th As always, Sabrina Jeffries has woven a well written story with interesting and flavorful characters.
I didn't really feel their attraction, one moment they were talking, the next they couldn't keep their hands of eacother and I didn't know why or how that happened.
There was no build up to it. It felt like Ms. Jeffries just breezed over it. I appreciated the maturity of the couple though and found both of them learned from their mistakes and were willing to admit it and fix things.
I really liked that. It can almost be tedious wading through all of the historical romance titles to hopefully find one with a little originality and depth.
The Bachelor is one of the rare finds. And on top of that, Ms. Jeffries' writing is so beautiful and gripping, she draws me into the story from the very first page and hooks me until the end.
All in all, this book is a romance worth reading. Well, color me disappointed. This ARC was only one chapter. There is not a whole lot I can say on one chapter except that it didn't compell me to read more.
I love Sabrina Jeffries and she's an excellent writer. But I can't quite tell if this book will be for me. The main reason I was interested in this book is because of the description.
I love forced proximity stories. I love the idea that Wolfe and Gwyn are stuck together. But I do not love mysteries or villain stories.
I requested this ARC b Well, color me disappointed. But having read only the first chapter, if I had that alone and nothing else, I would be turned off because I didn't learn much about the hero or the heroine.
I learned more about the villain. And I find it tedious to deal with villains. I wish I'd gotten more to make me buy into the book.
But now that I've read only the first chapter, it may have an opposite effect on my interest long term.
However, all of this is very personal. So, other people may feel different. Feb 02, Caiti The Romance Mom rated it liked it.
The first chapter of this book had my little grumpy-hero-loving heart all a'flutter. And on paper no book pun intended I should have loved this book.
There's banter and forced proximity and the bones are good. Excellent even. But something about this couple didn't quite do it for me Though they did fight a lot in the beginning and I liked that a lot.
Still, the love emotions didn't quite grab me by the guts. Maybe it was a chemistry thing? I don't know.
I like The first chapter of this book had my little grumpy-hero-loving heart all a'flutter. I liked this book. Lady Gwyn Drake is a yr-old spinster being presented at the royal court in London.
A shady character from her past is putting Gwyn in danger, so her brother hires Joshua Wolfe to protect her. The Bachelor has a sound premise and plot.

Major Wolfe is a Royal Marine on half-pay due to a serious injury. Her upcoming debut in London and the social whirl that accompanies the debut would give a blackguard plenty of opportunity for harm.
There is a definite need for a bodyguard, as a seducer, and blackmailer from Lady Gwyn past has come back. Her bonehead mistake is lying to her twin Thorn and Major Wolfe.
The intelligence is in how the story proceeds logically from there, with the characters behaving as they should, with not too many hare-brained actions.
The romance is romantic; it is steamy but not seedy. The hero and heroine do all that themselves. Not to mention all of those cousins, half-cousins and courtesy cousins roaming around in your story A common enough trope, true; but in the The Bachelor it is handled with both sensitivity and humor.
See, smart writing. There is also hints, as there was in the first book Project Duchess , of an on-going murder plot, with the entire family at risk.
Just vague hints, but if true, a plot going back to the murder of all the Duchess of Armitage's ducal husbands.

This review was originally posted on Addicted To Romance The Bachelor is the latest release from Sabrina Jeffries and such a fun and sweet read this turned out to be.
From the first book of the series "Project Duchess" we gain so much learning about this pairing and I was so happy to see that this author Sabrina Jeffries definitely crafted such beauty that is within this story.

I wasn't sure quite what to expect from their story but I knew this author wouldn't disappoint me and she definitely endeared me even more with this story.
Lady Gwyn Drake has been keeping a secret from her family in order to protect them. But she is paying a heavy price for it.
When her blackmailer, a man she once had a affair with, she is determined to stand up to and in so doing is in a difficult situation when he threatens and manhandles her and then Joshua Wolfe appears and satisfies the situation but realizes that Gwyn needs protection and an arrangement is agreed upon between Joshua and her brother the Duke.
Gwyn and Joshua have had an attraction to each other and now that they are in such close proximity But will Gwyn's secrets harm their relationship or will the unveiling only build their intimacy?
The Bachelor was such a charming and delightful romp of a romance, I truly had such a fun time with these characters and this family we got to see in book one.
We see so much more depths to both of these characters. With Joshua, his temper and injuries from being in the military and new opportunities that rise up for him.
Then we have lovely Gwyn, who is strong and passionate but tends to carry her loads on her shoulders alone and keeps secrets from those who love her the most.
We see how Gwyn has to learn to truly trust. She has been hurt and betrayed and there are wounds that are still festering.
What I truly became endeared most by was seeing her growth in discovering her own capabilities and learning to trust not only in Joshua but in love again.
Overall I found The Bachelor to be a sweet and sexy adventure of thrills, dares, delightful bantering that strikes a chord in the heart and delivers a beautiful story of redemption and healing!

Sep 06, eyes. Electric read! This second in the Duke Dynasty series is as I suspected a cracking good five star read with all the mystery, energy and frustration one could wish for.
Lady Gwyn Drake is a person holding deep secrets. I was won with the opening description of Gwyn where she's pacing an "ornamental bridge like a tigress in a crate.
With a malevolent blackmailer pursuing her, Gwyn finds herself in troubled waters. That's not a problem! She has a p Electric read!
She has a plan. Although not all plans run smoothly. Who better than a navy man to help rescue her? Even if it's at the request of her brother Thorn.
Of course Gwyn wants none of this. She has secrets to keep and being followed by Joshua does not fit with those plans, even if she finds Joshua attractive.
Talk about strong reactions these two have to each other! Often explosive, and yet at other moments they are both quietly stunned by the effect each has on the other--not that either of them is about to let their guard down too much!
Until they do! I was riveted by the push and pull of the attraction between these two, the gradual acceptance of each other, in between the fireworks, and the way they complimented each other.
And the suspicion that the preceding Dukes of Armitage might have been murdered as posited by Sheridan Wolfe in the first of the series?
That quietly bubbles to the surface towards the end, not forgotten, and now very much alive, along with the thought that these deaths might be centered around the Duchess of Armitage.
With two strong, passionate characters, witty dialogue and plenty of action this was a dynamic read! I must admit to being quite titilated by this release teaser, for the second title in the Duke Dynasty series by Sabrina Jeffries.
If this first chapter is any indication I can hardly wait for the rest. Lady Gwyn and Joshua were certainly "aware" of each other, when Bea first introduced them in the beginning story of the series, Project Duchess.
And perhaps a little attraction? Beatrice had always considered her brother relatively handsome, despite his limp and the straight black hair he kept unfashionably long.
Her brother never looked at any woman that way. How very interesting.. Where will this go? I did not realize that Gwyn is a person holding deep secrets.
Add to this the malevolency of her blackmailer and the truculency of Joshua, and fireworks are in the offing. This first chapter displays all the mystery, energy and frustration that promises to lead into a cracking good five star tale!
A Kensington Books chapter preview via NetGalley View 2 comments. Gwyn is 30 and unmarried. She's about to have her debut in society and be presented at court by her mother's friend.
That doesn't mean she knows nothing about men. She's the twin of the Duke of Thornstock and a former suitor is currently blackmailing her.
She hasn't been completely honest with her family but they know that the man is an enemy.
That's why Gwyn's brother hired Major Joshua Wolfe, former war hero and now the estate's gamekeeper, to be her bodyguard while she'll be in London.
The gr Gwyn is 30 and unmarried. The gruff but oh so attractive man also have his reason to want to go to London. If protecting the bold and confident lady, teaching her how to shoot and arguying with her is the way to do it, he'll gladly do it.
But what if his budding feelings for her were the true danger? Okay so even with the diagram, Im still a bit lost with all this blended family so I decided I won't try to make the link anymore.
I love that despite her age and being unmmaried, Gwyn doesn't second guess her worth, even if a decision she made in the past made her see herself as something she's not.
Sound contradictory I know but I don't see no other way to explain it. I love how Joshua and her were at ease with each other. Aug 03, Kimberly rated it liked it Shelves: historical , read , romance.
After seeing sparks fly between Gwyn and Joshua in the first Duke Dynasty book, I couldn't wait to read their story.
The result was a bit of a mixed bag for me. But Gwyn has a secret she believes might keep her 3.
Gwyn is bright and lively, but secretly vulnerable and Joshua is grumpy, hurting, and unhappy with his current place in the world. Their romance ticked all the boxes, but there was a bit of the usual Sabrina Jeffries magic missing in their story.
Malet is a villain worth loathing and I wanted to see Gwyn free of him. But the tension Malet brought to the story had nothing on the push-pull between Gwyn and Joshua.
And speaking of their muddled family tree, the family dynamics at play in The Bachelor were a delight. The love, frustration, and interference siblings bring is on full display in this book and adds depth to the story.
I loved watching Gwyn and Joshua interact with their family members, so even though this book was just an ok read for me, I really cannot wait to read the next Duke Dynasty book.
FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
This is one of those instances. Gwyn and Joshua had fantastic chemistry in Project Duchess and I couldn't resist even a peek into their story.
A gruff hero, a bold heroine with a secret, and a villain I already want to punch? Sign me up. I can't wait to see how Gwyn and Joshua will thwart her blackmailer in The Bachelor.
More importantly, I can't wait to see how those two will find their happily ever after. They promise to be an absolutely delicious couple.

A Duchess was married 3 times and had 5 children, so 3 of her sons are inheriting a dukedom. I love this concept so much!!!
But, I wasn't a fan of the first book. Neither character really pulled me, probably just a personality disconnect or something.
Still, I love Sabrina Jeffries and will always give her a try. I enjoyed this book a little more, but it st Safety warning: view spoiler [ miscarriage, murder self defense , PTSD hide spoiler ] This is the second book in the Duke Dynasty series.
I enjoyed this book a little more, but it still fell flat for me : This book is about Gwyn, before mentioned Duchess's daughter , and Joshua.
Joshua is the brother of Beatrice, who is the heroine of book 1. This book can be read as a standalone, but I think it would be better if you read the first book for a few reasons.
First of all, there seems to be a series long mystery going on, possibly with the mother's past? We didn't find out in the first book, and are also left hanging in this book without much information.
Secondly, the first book does a good job of explaining all the family dynamics and establishing character personalities, many of whom are this book as well.
I think plenty of others will love it. I don't love when the heroine has a past, and much of the book covers this, what has happened in the past and how it's affecting the current situation.
This book didn't have much tension to me, kisses and sexual encounters kept happening but I didn't feel the build up or the wanting necessarily.
It just felt more mechanical to me. I guess I just couldn't see why or how they were falling in love. The dialogue didn't make me feel their pasts.
Oh yes, they have pasts and baggage but it was more like it was just stated, I saw it, I didn't feel it. They didn't worm their way into my hearts like some characters do.
It wasn't an unpleasant read for me, but it didn't have anything standing out that brought it above pleasant for me.
It was okay. I am loving the covers for this series though. I adore this cover and it portrays a scene from the story which I love even more.
I give 3 stars. I was able to receive an ARC copy complimentary from netgalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

I was expecting the whole book but only received the first chapter. I reread the first book in the series expecting to go right into the second.

He is blackmailing her and if she doesn't pay, he says he will tell the press about the affair they had ten years ago and ruin her.
