Review:



I'm really glad I've chosen to read this book even if I didn't know the author and I didn't read the previous stories because The Duke's Runaway Bride was a lovely read that made me feeling good.

Beatrix ran away from her husband Quinton Roxbury Duke of Howden as soon as she said yes at the altar because she didn't want to be trapped in another hollow house. Quinton has married because he did need money to save his house from ruin, so when his wife ran away he kept the money and didn't say anything to avoid yet another scandal to his family. When he finds his wife's hiding place he decides to go meet her and to try to take her home, things don't go as planned because Beatrix wants a divorce but the two of them make a deal, if after six weeks Beatrix doesn't change her mind they'll part for ever. Will they have their happy ending? Or will Beatrix choose the freedom of her new life in Bath?

I fell in love with the main characters, Quinton and Beatrix have their reasons to act like they do but I absolutly adored how they give a real try to their relationship, without becoming instantly intimate. It was a pleasure to see them build a home together, filling it with love where everyone has the right to confront their emotions and be free.

I loved everything about this novel, it is well written and entertaining, Jenni Fletcher made me care about all the characters, in fact, I hope she has planned to write something more about Quinton's family.

I highly recommend this book you won't regret it.
