Review:




Playing the Duke's Fiancée tells the story of another Wilkins sister, three american sisters who come to England and find love.

Violet Wilkins is the only daughter of the American King of coal still not married, she has put her dreams and passion into her photography and she doesn't want an husband who will clip her wings. William the Duke of Charteris devoted his life to become a good Duke, he works hard for his lands and the wellness of the people who work and live there. They are neighbours and they meet each other a few times before they decide to pretend to get engaged in order to avoid their lives' obligations. Will their ruse succeed? Or their plan goes in an unexpected direction?

It was a pleasure to follow Violet and Will's journey, you can feel their affection for each other time before they pick up on that. I loved how they brings the best of each other out, without trying to change the traits of their character that make them so different.
Violet is a force of the nature, I adore her and Will just did need a little more time to show his true self that makes him irresistible.

Amanda McCabe did a very good job with the wording, the storyline and the characterization.
I was fascinated by the characters, their passions and the St. Petersburg setting was really enchanting.

I really did enjoy this book and I would definitely recommend it.
