Product Description

When handsome army officer Avery Fox unexpectedly inherits a fortune, he instantly becomes one of the season's most eligible bachelors. More accustomed to the battlefield, he has no patience with the naive debutantes who fill the ballrooms of London.
Honest and impetuous Lady Lucy Radley is a breath of fresh air, guiding him through the season and helping him to avoid any traps. So when a scandalous evening encounter in the garden leaves Lucy with a ripped bodice and Avery accused of being a rogue, he is left with little option but to marry Lucy. Still he can't help but feel he's been manipulated. Nor can he shake the feeling that a duke's daughter should be out of his reach.
From the wildly beautiful Scottish Highlands to the elegant soirees of Paris, Avery and Lucy go on a journey that is full of surprises for them both.  But will their feelings for each other be strong enough to overcome the circumstances of their marriage and survive the ghosts of Avery's past?
Letter from a Rake: A scandalous exchange of letters.

An Unsuitable Match: A rogue tamed.

The Duke's Daughter: Regency London, Paris and Scotland

The third instalment in the Strathmore series, Sasha Cottman takes me from the high society balls in London, through the highlands in Scotland to the soirees in Paris. A marriage of convenience and a desire by our beloved Lucy Radley to make the marriage work, is followed by a tumultuous journey of desire for her husband, who only feels like he has been trapped in this marriage, to love and cherish her . While Lucy goes on a journey to win the love of her husband, Avery Fox, Avery is on a different path, to come to terms his devils from the war and return the stolen watch.

I enjoyed this instalment in the Strathmore series with the usual characters coming back to join me on the Lucy Radley / Avery Fox journey. This instalment leaves those characters behind in Scotland and moves us to Paris to meet new characters in Lucy’s handsome cousin, William.

Sasha managed to steer me through the beauty and enviable life of high society London at the beginning of the book and engaged me in the life of the rich from the highlands in Scotland to a journey through Paris which left me feeling like I had travelled through Paris myself.

This is an even better instalment in the Strathmore series and I commend Sasha in mixing a historical backdrop with a journey of finding love and self that is relevant today. I can’t wait for what is ahead in the Strathmore novels…!

I was so happy to see this book on my Kindle yesterday. It couldn't have come at a better time. As always, Sasha Cottman's penned a number that's left me with that big warm-fuzzy smile on my dial. Three words to sum this one up. 'I love Lucy!'

4.0 out of 5 stars She is looking for a man who will share a love with her like her parents and brother have 7 September 2015
By Heather L - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Avery Fox has spent the last 15 years of his life in the Army only to come home on deaths door. When he finally recovers from his war wounds he is not only haunted by the man he killed on the battlefield but by the death of his evil brother. Upon finding out his brother had been murdered he learns he is now the heir to the current Earl of Langham.

Lucy is the oldest daughter of the Duke of Strathmore. She is looking for a man who will share a love with her like her parents and brother have. When she meets Avery she decides that she is going to help him become a part of the ton and be comfortable in it. As she assists him with learning every thing befitting his station she starts to fall for him. She takes a chance and kisses him which leads to her falling in a thorn bush and being caught er by her father and the Earl of Langham.

Avery and Lucy are forced to wed or be ruined. Lucy believes Avery hates her and offers him a way out. Avery feels that Lucy set out to trap him so she could have what she wanted. The must overcome the difficulties that caused their marriage, the guilt Avery feels for killing a man with his own hands and they must learn to trust in each other. Will Avery be able to regain his honor and forgive himself before it's too late for him and Lucy? How long will Lucy hang on and put up with a Avery's self pity and loathing? Will she be able to reach him to his heart or is he a lost cause?

This story takes you on a journey from London, to Scotland then to Paris. You will meet multiple members of Lucy's family that are featured in previous books of their own.

I really enjoyed Lucy and Avery's story though at times I wanted to violent shake Avery and tell him to open his eyes to what was jn front of him. He really mad me angry at times with his depressive behavior and his poor me attitude. I completely understood why he felt the way he did but he went a little overboard at times. He truly is a great guy though and he deserves every happiness. Lucy was brilliant most of the time. She was strong and stubborn though at there was a time she needed to speak her heart but was to scared to.

All in all this is a wonderful historical romance that was extremely well written and I truly enjoyed it. I loved the history in it as well. I would definitely recommend this book to all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Romance and Forgiveness 5 August 2016
By Emilia G. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
After I received this book and saw that it was part of a series I thought that would mean parts of the book would have a lot of explaining backstory covered in other books by the author or I would feel like I was missing parts of the story. However neither was the case with this book even though I haven't read the other books. So rest assured that you can start the series with this book and not be lost and if you have read the others you won't have to read through (or skip over) parts that you already know.

This book fits into the entertainment, relaxing reading category for me. As it is a historical novel there is a little bit of cultural and historical context but that doesn't seem to be the main emphasis of the book. The settings, attire, modes of transportation and (lack of) refrigeration were the main differences indicating a historical novel. But the way the characters talked and some of their actions were not specific to the place and era. While I liked the main characters I found some parts of the book a bit unbelievable. The way the 2 main characters became engaged and their reactions to the situation I found a bit ridiculous and this conflict was carried a bit far (they rotate between friendship, love and dislike rapidly). However the author did an excellent job of resolving the situation in a not overly quick way but instead in a way that seemed more realistic. The way family and friends obviously care about them and show them kindness was excellent. Another theme of the book was forgiveness of yourself and others. This was played out in a dramatic situation involving the male lead character that understandably was difficult for all the characters involved and was well described by the author.
While this book does not disappoint as a happy ending romance novel there is also substance and depth that makes it more dimensional.

5.0 out of 5 stars How to Develop Trust and Love 13 August 2015
By Jazz's Tia - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The Duke’s Daughter Review
*** I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.***
This is story of Lucy and Avery both wanting to be loved, but unsure how to go about it.
Lucy was raised with privilege and money, a daughter of Duke. She never worried if she was loved by her family. She knew. Raised by a loving father and mother, brothers and sister that loved her. She knew what she wanted in a loving relationship. She never wanted to just settle, she wanted someone that she knew she loved. She wanted what her two older brothers had, a relationship centered on love.
Avery, poor, poor Avery never had love, raised by a father and brother who both were thieves. Didn’t understand love. Never had a family who cared about him. Now that he is the heir to an Earl, life has become very different and difficult for him. But the secrets of his life, have shaped him to be a person who doesn’t really trust.
Lucy and Avery are from different worlds, but their attraction, which turns to love is wonderful. Lucy and Avery learn to trust each other with a lot patience and understanding. I like how the author developed their relationship, with ups and downs, kind of like real life. This is book that I couldn’t put down once I started reading. I look forward to reading more books from Sasha Cottman.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely story of two young people trying to make a doomed relationship work... 12 October 2015
By Panthea14 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The 3rd in the Duke of Strathmore 'Regency Romance' series is centred on Lucy, the sister of the heroes of Books 1 and 2. We have seen enough of Lucy in the previous 2 books to have got to know her quite well. She can't help herself, she is a meddler and when she meets the physically and emotionally scarred Avery Fox (the unexpected heir to the Earl of Langham), she sets her heart on improving him and helping him to fit into the 'ton'. Circumstances interfere and Avery and Lucy are thrown together before either are ready.
As with Cottman's previous books, the secondary characters, particularly the family members play important roles in this story and I particularly love the interplay of family relationships which makes them seem so normal and subject to all the normal ups and downs of family life. This is not a domestic drama though and I have to confess there were moments I just wanted to bang Avery and Lucy's heads together before sense finally ruled and they got their hard earned HEA. This is far from being a 'sweet' story, in the sense that there is contextual love making but it is a sweet and lovely story of two young people trying to make a doomed relationship work.

This is book three in the "The Duke of Strathmore" series. Avery Fox has been hurt physically from a injury the got in war. Then his brother is killed and he is given his brothers title. Avery has been a soldier and not so much a person raised for a title. Lady Lucy Radley is looking for love in her marriage but she does want to help Avery get more familiar with the town and his title.
But they accidentally fall in to a rose bush and get caught. They are then forced to marry but Avery thinks that this was Lucy plan all along. Bu Lucy tries to help correct the problem. But they slowly start to trust each other.
