Don’t Tell A Duke You Love Him by Tammy Andresen
How to Reform A Rake Series, Book 1
January 22, 2019
He was too dangerous to be denied…
The Duke of Longley was a rake and should be left well enough alone. At least that is what Lady Lily Ducat’s mother continually said. As far as Lily could tell, she was correct. His Grace had a devilish air about him and a brooding silence that no debutante should attempt to tame and certainly not grow an affection for. He was too much man and beyond redemption. Except once they are tossed together after a winter storm, she is dangerously close to declaring her love because in the dark of night, he was all Lily could see.
Maximillian Masters learned long ago to stay far away from dewy eyed maidens. He was too cynical, too experienced, and much too adverse to marriage for such a lady. Which is why he must never see the lovely Lily again no matter what some ridiculous gypsy predicted. Except, when he is stranded and at the mercy of winter, Lily is there and the more he sees her, the harder it is to deny temptation.
This is a standalone romance but is part of a five book series with a prologue:

Book 1: Don’t Tell a Duke You Love Him
Book 2: Meddle in a Marquess’s Affairs
Book 3: Never Trust an Errant Earl
Book 4: Never Kiss an Earl at Midnight

A bit of a love at first sight story. Max is a rake who knows he needs to stay away from Lady Lily. Lily has a big heart and the wrong type of men always seemed to want her. After a brief meeting in a shop months ago, neither has forgotten the other. A delightful novella with wonderful characters and dialogue. I really loved the sisterly bond of the Ducats. We meet three of the five sisters who will have a story in this series and they are indeed a force to be reckon with. I’m eager to see how each rake will crumble at their feet.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Tammy Andresen lives with her husband and three children just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. She grew up on the Seacoast of Maine, where she spent countless days dreaming up stories in blueberry fields and among the scrub pines that line the coast. Her mother loved to spin a yarn and Tammy filled many hours listening to her mother retell the classics. It was inevitable that at the age of 18, she headed off to Simmons College, where she studied English literature and education. She never left Massachusetts but some of her heart still resides in Maine and her family visits often.
