DARE TO FALL IN LOVE Alexander Savage, the Duke of Blackshire, is known throughout theton for three things: the burn scars on his neck, his ornery disposition, and the trail of broken hearts behind him. None of which would concern Miss Elizabeth Lacey in the least--if she weren't living under his roof. As his grandmother's companion, Beth is all too concerned with the moody and compelling duke. Incensed by his plans to banish the sweet dowager duchess to the country, Beth refuses to do his bidding. If Alex wants her help, he's going to have to take her dare...and grant her three wishes. Alex adores his grandmother, which is precisely why she must leave. A string of unfortunate incidents has him worried for the safety of everyone around him--including the dowager's loyal and lovely companion, Beth. But the notorious wallflower isn't as meek as she appears, and as their battle of wills heats up, so does Alex's desire. He's dangerously close to falling in love with her...and revealing secrets he'd rather keep hidden. How can he convince her that his darkest days are behind him--and that, for the first time in forever, his heart is true?

DNF. I really am feeling bad about dropping this novel but OMG Alex needed to get over himself and report the accidents so they could catch the culprit. And he should've been straight forward with Beth about EVERYTHING from the beginning or at least the beginning of their bargain. He kept getting into his own way ... then his "big reveal" before sex wasn't the main thing he needed to be telling her. Therefore, because I kept on being annoyed with Alex I gave up by Chapter 27.

If you pick this one up ... best of luck and I hope you'll enjoy it more than I did.

This is the my first Anna Bennett novel and I was so impressed I immediately bought the first book in the series. And looking forward to book 3, THE ROGUE IS BACK IN TOWN. It may very well go on my yearly reread list! Obviously I read it as a standalone with no problems.
Alex and Beth have amazing chemistry that pulled me right into the story. The dialogue between them is at times hilarious. Grandma was pretty cool too. The story moves along at a nice pace, not too fast and not too slow. This story is captivating and very well written, I read it in one sitting. I just couldn't out it down. ( )

I would normally feel that I'm a wide reader of historical romance as a book blogger, but I hang my head in shame that I have only just discovered the amazing talent of Anna Bennett! Seriously though! Where the heck have I been, that I have not experienced the deliciousness of this writing! And the shame that I have not shared this amazing authors work before! But before I waffle on too much, let me tell you about her latest release, I Dared the Duke.

Alexander (Alex) Savage, the Duke of Blackshire, was under attack...quite literally! Someone had it out for him and after barely surviving 2 attempts on his life, he was determined to protect the only family he had left, his grandmother Dowager Duchess.

But little did Alex know, his grandmother had a companion now, the plain spoken Miss. Elizabeth (Beth) Lacey, one of the "Wilted Wallflowers", and Beth was not going allow the Dowager Duchess happiness to be zapped by the overbearing and ornery Duke, by sending them to the country.

So Alex and Beth enter into an agreement...well basically she is blackmailing him, into giving his grandmother 3 wishes, and then she will support his decision into heading to the country.

But who would know, that from an blackmail, spark of attraction can turn into love! And now Alex is determined not only to protect his beloved grandmother, but also Beth, the only other person he loves; from the person that wants his demise.

Now, I just wants to say that I have barely touched the surface with my description of the story! But I didn't want to give the story away, I wanted everyone to share in the pleasure of reading this book! Honestly, I cannot even begin to describe just how much I love this story! the plot is gripping, amazing and full of love! The writing is smooth and you instantly get absorbed into the story.

But oh the characters! They are all divine! From the scared Alex who begins to smile, to Beth who finds a purpose, to a Alex's Grandmother, who is more than meets the eye. And I could go on and on! But I can only implore you just to read this amazing story and fall in love, the way I have!

I give I Dared the Duke 5 stars!

The tone of the story is set from the outset. I’m prepared to laugh and enjoy!

Elizabeth Lacey, Beth that is, is a terribly kind woman who wants to make everything right, certainly right wrongs and restore harmony between people. She is companion to Alexander Savage, the Duke of Blackshire’s mother, Dowager Duchess of Blackshire. The Dowager is a little bit of a match maker which I find endearing. She also has lots of spunk and totally lovable and quick-witted. Beth feels very protective of the women and works against Blackshire’s desire to have them both out of his townhouse.

Beth, dragging her feet as much as possible, makes a bargain with the duke to allow three wishes to his grandmother. She then will acquit the residence wondering how she will convince the dowager since she loves the active life of London.

Not informed of the truth of the situation, Beth assumes so much about the relationship between Blackshire and his grandmother. She puts herself between what she perceives as a wrong done to his grandmother and Blackshire’s seemingly selfish motives.

The dowager is happy with her new companion and Beth found it isn’t difficult to make her happy. Older people want the same as anyone – to be heard and respected.

Beth is the middle sister of the women known as the Wilting Wallflowers – known for three years as such and coined so by none other than Blackshire. Would the duke dare tell Beth, especially when his feeling for her are deepening?

The duke is one of those duke’s with the ‘better than thou attitude’, yes, the typical duke. What is it about power anyway? But his redeeming quality is he truly wants to keep his grandmother safe. Someone is out to kill him. But who? Will they also try to harm his grandmother and even Beth?

Beth has spunk and she doesn’t let him get away with it. And that my dear reader, is what catches the fellow. But not before he puts his foot in his mouth when he tries to explain why he should feign interest in Beth to try to capture the killer.

Excerpt:

She shook her head, incredulous. “You think that your interest in me will cause other gentleman to hold me in esteem?”

“A dog always wants another dog’s bone.”

Miss Lacey gasped, clearly horrified by his attempt to explain. “How dare you compare me to a dog? She snapped.

For the love of—“I’m the dog. You’re the bone.”

“Your charming little metaphor was not entirely beyond me, your grace.”

He shrugged. “Apparently, it was.”

Narrowing her eyes to slits, she stepped toward him. Close enough for him to see the subtle rise and fall of her chest.

“I followed your meaning. Now allow me to explain something to you.” She spoke slowly, anger dripping for each word. “I am not the bone. But if I were, I wouldn’t be caught dead in your mouth.”

*****
Alex is a good duke, his grandmother’s protection tantamount. He’s unable to convince Beth without telling her the complete story. This lends to a rather funny story until the situation is laced with nail-biting fear.

Author Anna Bennet is an author I haven’t read. I enjoyed the story and recommend the series to those who enjoy Regency reads with danger, humor, feisty heroines and dukes way beyond their depth!

I received a Netgalley ARC for review purposes. All opinions and comments are solely my own and are freely given. ( )
