Say No to the Duke by Eloisa James: Blog Tour Review + Giveaway

The official blog tour for Say No to the Duke by Eloisa James (in stores now!) stops by Novel Novice today — and we’ve got a fabulous mini-review from my SIL Heather, plus your chance to win a copy of this fun historical romance.

Could she possibly refuse a duke’s hand—in favor of a sardonic, sinful rake?

Lady Betsy Wilde’s first season was triumphant by any measure, and a duke has proposed—but before marriage, she longs for one last adventure.

No gentleman would agree to her scandalous plan—but Lord Jeremy Roden is no gentleman. He offers a wager. If she wins a billiards game, he’ll provide the breeches.

If he wins…she is his, for one wild night.

But what happens when Jeremy realizes that one night will never be enough? In the most important battle of his life, he’ll have to convince Betsy to say no to the duke.

Lord Jeremy Rosen just didn’t see those feelings coming. Night after night, Lady Besty Wilde found her way into the billiard room and finessed her way around the table while he imagined his way around her corset. But finding himself in that billiards room for what seems like Betsy’s millionth marriage proposal might just be enough to bring back the manhood he thought was left on the battlefield.

She’ll have to say no to a duke, but yes to the man that makes her knees sweat.

Lady Betsy is every bit the mischievous woman her eyebrows would suggest, and we have come to expect from the Wildes. Pull up your lady britches for a delightful adventure.

  1. I enjoy the settings and the mannerisms and social etiquette in historical romances.

  2. I love seeing a heroine defy societal constraints of the day whether it’s a little thing or something world changing.

  3. I love historical books in general but what intrigues me is the places/settings they are in.
