Review: ‘An Unlikely Duchess’ by Jessica Nelson

About The Book
A marriage of convenience

is the only way to save her family…

Widow Sophia Seymour never planned to marry again—let alone become a duchess. But with her father missing and her family impoverished, an old betrothal contract promising her hand to a notorious duke is her only hope. And Edmund DeVane intends to honor the agreement—in name only. After all, Edmund needs a wife with an impeccable reputation to protect his debuting niece. But as their arrangement starts to feel much more real, can their budding love survive Edmund’s deepest secret?
About Jessica Nelson
Jessica Nelson believes romance happens every day, and thinks the greatest, most intense romance comes from a God who woos people to himself with passionate tenderness. When Jessica is not chasing her three beautiful, wild little boys around the living room, she can be found staring into space as she plots her next story. Or she might be daydreaming about a raspberry mocha from Starbucks. Or thinking about what kind of chocolate she should have for dinner that night. She could be thinking of any number of things, really. One thing is for certain, she is blessed with a wonderful family and a lovely life.
My Rating: 5 Stars!
‘Prayer had been foreign to him for many years.’

I do love a good Regency and this one is one of the very best I’ve read. Jessica Nelson has certainly written one for the keeper shelf this time. She has crafted characters that are real to me from the start, something I especially need when I read a book. Nothing will make me set a book aside quicker than wooden characters. These certainly are not that. They are people who display real emotions and problems that a reader can relate to. I couldn’t put it down! It held a very good spiritual thread that was very thought provoking and centering. I loved every minute! Well done!

My thanks to the author and publisher for a copy of this book. I was not required to leave a positive review and the opinion here is my own.
