He’s a virgin who almost died at Waterloo . . . and now finds himself a duke.

She’s been told that kissing is important and if she likes a man and has the opportunity . . . she should take it.

Lady Thea de Wolfe breaks her leg, causing her to miss her first London Season, one in which her sister, Diana, becomes the Countess of Merrifield and Thea’s best friend, Amelia, weds Thea’s brother, Lord Reston. Seeing those closest to her find love has led Thea to dare to dream of the possibility of love coming to her.

Major Adam Ashbury arrives home from war to discover his cousin recently died in a phaeton accident, making Adam the new Marquess of Trumbull. Before he can get used to having a title, his uncle dies and the former military man finds himself woefully unprepared to be the Duke of Durham. Adam can’t even dance—but he longs to find a duchess and create a new life for himself, one in which family and love play equally important roles.

A funeral first brings Adam and Thea together, followed soon by a house party, where their growing attraction finds fertile ground to blossom. Though other single women vie for new duke’s attention and Thea’s guardian is determined to keep her from kissing anyone before she makes her come-out, true love runs its natural course for the pair.

Thea is Book 3 in The de Wolfes of Esterley Castle and a part of the De Wolfe Pack Connected World. It can be read as a standalone.
 

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


Major Adam Ashbury hasn't been home from the wars for very long.  He has already inherited twice.  Now he finds himself a Duke without the slightest idea how to be one. 
Lady Thea de Wolfe came to London to enjoy her sister's season that she should have been sharing if she hadn't broken her leg.  She's now fully recovered but the season is ending. 
This is a short but very sweet historical romance,  with fabulous characters.  I have met a few of them before in the previous books in the series.  All the books are good fun and very easy reading. 
Very enjoyable.
