Finishing school failed to turn them into proper society ladies. Now these four friends vow to remain single until they find suitors worthy of their love and devotion… 

Betrothed to a man she has barely met, Lady Faith Landon calls upon her three best friends—the self-proclaimed Wallflowers of West Lane—to help uncover the secrets of her mysterious fiancé. Her suspicions are aroused when she learns that he has recently returned from France. Is he a traitor to his country? The truth is quite the opposite. Nicholas Ellsworth, Duke of Breckenridge, is a secret agent for the English Crown who has just completed a risky mission to infiltrate Napoleon’s spy network.

After his adventures, Nicholas craves the peace and quiet of the country and settling into domestic bliss with his bride. Until he discovers Faith’s deceptive investigation. How can he wed a woman who doesn’t trust him? But a powerful spark has ignited between Nicholas and Faith that could bring about a change of heart. Faith seizes her second chance to prove to Nicholas that they are a true love match but his past catches up with them when three French spies come to exact revenge. Surviving rather than wooing has become the order of the day.


Rating: 4 out of 5.

Spoiler Free Review

Lady Faith Landon is betrothed to the Duke of Breckenridge, Nicholas Ellsworth, but with the amount of secrets that lie beneath his exterior, Faith remains suspicious of his actions. She can’t help but wonder what those secrets are, even if the truth is far from what she expected.

Nicholas Ellsworth, the Duke of Breckenridge, has a strong attraction to Lady Faith and he can’t seem to take his eyes off her, even if her past actions in trying to discover who Nick truly is has irritated him. Nonetheless, attraction always beats irritation and for this instance, Faith and Nick fight to discover this attraction.

I gave Misleading A Duke four stars, enjoying the intense plot that Faith and Nick go through to truly find the love that they hold for each other. I found that the hardships that they both went through was quite enjoyable and was what made Misleading A Duke pleasant to read, while the romance between Faith and Nick was strong, for me it felt that the plot was more the story than their romance. That being said, their romance was equally as amazing and I loved them both very much.

While Faith believes throughout the story that Nick is hiding deep secrets, it is known that he is really a secret agent for the English crown and that he himself has gone through quite the past which is why Faith was uncomfortable with not knowing anything about Nick when they first meet.

What I loved about Misleading A Duke is that no matter how irritated they both felt about each other, they both couldn’t fight off this simple attraction that they felt toward each other. And amazingly, it only grew stronger when they were forced into an unpleasant situation. They both came to discover that irritation was really the opposite of what they were feeling toward each other.

I thoroughly enjoyed Misleading A Duke and loved every second of Faith and Nick’s romance.

Thank you again to NetGalley for providing me an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
