For me there wasn't enough wit or romantic "chase" - and it had way too much of the hero and leading lady fighting for their own interests. - His in his quest to become prime minister and her with her reform of the prisons. I got just over half of the book and then skimmed the rest. - Though i enjoyed the notes between Cousin Michael and Charlotte at the beginning of each chapter. I may check out their book. If they have one. ( )

A thoroughly enjoyable story!

Louisa North is a beautiful, strong, passionate and kind heroine, and illegitimate daughter to an ornery king.

Simon Tremaine is a carefully raised and ambitious man who thinks he is incapable of love.

After ruling India, Simon returns home to England to take his place in English politics. When the King returns to his old antics, Simon is given one last task before he can be appointed to his desired position - get the stubborn Louisa to back down on her radical reforms and out of the King's way. Simon's obeyed the King before, but the beautiful and challenging Louisa is about to change everything.

Only a Duke Will Do is a delightful book full of romance and adventure. A must read! ( )

Hero comes back from being GG of India, seeks former flame- natural daughter of the Prince of Wales. Good character, plot and background. Introduces woman centered contraception. ( )

This is my very favorite of Jeffries' books (so far). Simon is the perfect hero - arrogant, ambitious, handsome, with a dark past and ulterior (political!) motives for doing what he does. This book is well written and fast moving, and a great deal of fun - I highly reccomend! ( )

Book description
Blurb: Marry? Never! It would end Louisa North's work with her ladies reform group - and truth be told, she likes her independence very much, despite her royal father's protests. So when Simon Tremaine, the dashing Duke of Foxmoor whom she once loved - and had exiled from England - returns bent on marrying her, she's skeptical. Does he truly care for her, or does he simply want revenge? It's difficult to resist Simon's dangerous charms, because the fire between them still burns as hot as ever. But when his ulterior motive for marriage is exposed, along with the deeply buried secrets of his past, Louisa vows to make him pay....and the price will be his heart.
