Product description

Product Description

In her first Season, Hope Baxendale attracts the interest of a powerful English duke, the husband all debutantes wish for and some will fight dirty to get. If only the handsome Frenchman Daniel Brienne, Duc du Ténèbres wasn’t distracting her from her course. Daniel shows little interest in marrying again, and surely, it is only the sadness in his deep brown eyes that pulls her to him:

Daniel yearns for solitude. When his very existence is threatened, he wakes to the possibilities of a life passionately lived. He knows just whom he wants in his future, but the weary hawk, the Duke of Winslow, circles. And is it fair to ask Hope to leave her family and her country for him?

'Lady Faith takes a Leap' an excellent book that got five stars from me. Another book by Maggi Anderson 'How to Tame a Rake' got 3 stars as I just couldn't believe in it. Lady Hope was not as good as Lady Faith but it was still pretty good.

Hope is aiming to marry a duke and in line with her plans she attracts the notice of a respectable English duke Winslow. But she finds herself attracted to a tragic French nobleman Daniel. Having failed to save his first wife and child, Daniel decides he will never remarry. He fights his attraction to Hope.

This is a well written book with interesting characters and a solid plot. At times it seemed a little slow and the lead character Hope did not seem to have much of a personality which is why I gave it four stars and not five.

4.0 out of 5 stars My favourite book by this author so far 3 January 2016
By Sandy Milan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is one of the best stories I've read by this author. It's clean firstly and secondly the H doesn't have a mistress or any other woman on the side. The h is a lovely young woman being pressured by her family into getting married. She meets the H, a gorgeous French Duke with English ties but he is not on the marriage market as he lost a wife and son and doesn't want to open himself up to pain again. The h in the meanwhile is being courted by an austere English Duke, whom her parents are quite keen on. The H then discovers he has a half-sister whom he knew nothing about. He wants her to take her rightful place in society and introduces her to the h because she's kind and lovely. This obviously means that our main characters have more contact with each other. As I said it's a good story and well worth reading

Update 25/8/2016
I have no idea why I ended up reading this again via KU. I somehow didn't pick up that I read it - I'll admit to some passages seeming familiar. I'm not going to adjust my star rating as it wouldn't be fair to this author but I wouldn't give it 4 stars today. Also the epilogue was not 100% clean - definitely some sexual content although not explicit.
3.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first two in the series 9 March 2017
By Sandra - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This novella is better than the first two in the series. I think that is because her father wasn't quite as bad as in the other books. He still wanted her to marry a titled, wealthy man -- but at least he wasn't trying to make her marry someone known to be cruel to women. I did like both Hope and Daniel, and his sister Sophie was fun. As in the other two stories, though, I would have liked for the couple to spend more time together -- it's just hard for me to see a love connection with a couple that barely know each other.

This one gets 3.5 stars, but since you can't give half stars, that is rounded down to 3 stars. It is better than the other stories, but not quite good enough to warrant 4 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars very good read 17 November 2015

I so enjoy your books but they always seem to short. This was a very good story with a few twists to the plot. The characters well thought out. A surprise or two is in the offering. I highly recommend.
5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful read! 14 March 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

From start to finish this book really holds your attention! You really find yourself in the middle of the balls dancing the night away and also being part of the Baxendale family. That's what I look for in a good book. The sense of losing oneself to another time and world. I do wish to thank Miss Anderson for giving us the gift of her talent. Would that I could afford them I would have all her books.
3.0 out of 5 stars it was okay... 27 February 2016

I like Maggi Andersen's style of writing, but I like more interaction with the characters that I read. I felt that I never got to know Hope and Daniel as a "couple" until the last few pages. They hardly spent any time together.... and when they did I didn't get the warm and fuzzies I usually get reading a romance. I'm on the fence on whether or not to read the other books in this series.
