Book Description

What governess would refuse a duke? Exuberant, opinionated, irrepressible Leah Shaw, that’s who. Since her arrival at Renforth Hall, the Duke of Northam’s young son, Kit, has thrived.

Leah, intent on traveling abroad, insists she will stay for one year only. Marriage would change everything—if only Hayden Latimer knew how to woo a woman who wants nothing to do with matrimony. All the duke’s wealth could not buy Leah the one thing she cherishes most: her independence. But if an overprotective father can give his son room to grow, can she learn to put down roots? For it’s every woman’s prerogative to change her mind…when her heart is guiding her toward love.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable Regency romance 13 Jan. 2014
    By Carole Jarvis - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition
    The Duke's Marriage Mission is book #5 in Deborah Hale's delightful Glass Slipper Brides series, described as follows:

    Rebecca, Marian, Grace, Hannah, Leah and Evangeline became fast friends while enduring a harsh childhood at the Pendergast Charity School. Now scattered throughout the kingdom, they work as governesses, never expecting to know the blessings of love, marriage and families of their own. But when their paths cross with some special gentlemen, these humble governesses may become Cinderella brides!

    When I want a cozy, relaxed read that I know will leave me smiling, a Love Inspired Historical is my "go to" choice. This is the first of Deborah's many books that I've read and I certainly enjoyed it. Although it's part of a series and other characters are mentioned occasionally, this story easily stands alone.

    Hayden and Leah are engaging and well-developed characters, each with past experiences that can potentially lead to poor decision making. Any parent of a disabled child can relate to the tug-of-war between Hayden and Leah, the struggle with over protectiveness vs. increased freedom when it comes to Kit. Hayden's love for his son is very moving, and Deborah did a good job in showing how they learned from each other: "Lord Northam was learning some valuable lessons from her . . . and she was learning a thing or two from him about patience, selflessness and all-consuming devotion."

    There were two scenes that I especially loved: first, when Leah came upon Hayden in the chapel, overhearing the raw emotion in his prayers; and secondly, the visit of Kit's long-time family doctor. Angry over being questioned by Leah, Dr. Bannister lashes out: "I do not expect you to understand my treatments since the science of medicine is too complex for the female mind to grasp."

    The spiritual theme is one of freedom, and Deborah skillfully weaves the message of 2 Corinthians 3:17 throughout: "Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom." Also, in a scene where Leah and Hayden are talking about the joy of eventually being able to take Kit to a worship service in the chapel, I appreciated Hayden's beautiful thoughts: "There is something special about worshipping in a consecrated place with other believers. It is like taking a single candle and putting it into a chandelier. The crystals reflect and magnify its light."

    While The Duke's Marriage Mission is obviously a romance - and there is good chemistry between Hayden and Leah - I liked that the storyline seemed to revolve more around Kit. I would definitely recommend The Duke's Marriage Mission to those who enjoy historical romance that inspires.

    Thank you to Deborah Hale for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. My 5-star rating is in comparison to other books in the Love Inspired line.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Read. 16 Mar. 2014
    By Amazon Customer - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I don't often give ratings and almost never give 5 stars. However, as I feel there needs to be a way to denote that something is better than the rest I feel compelled to rate this as 5 stars. This is a great story that is written well. I'm not a historian so couldn't tell you about the inaccuracies (if any) but I can tell you that nothing was glaringly obvious to me. You will enjoy it.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The Dukes Marriage Mission 8 Mar. 2014
    By booprican - Published on
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    This book grabbed my attention from the first paragraph. It touched my heart so much as I felt a personal connection to it. It made me smile, laugh and cried a little. A great "feel-good" story. I didn't want it to end.

    5.0 out of 5 stars --4.5 Stars-- 16 Nov. 2013
    By E&M - Published on
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    Book 5 in the Glass Slipper Bride Series

    First let me say that the romance is a little on the light side since this book focuses mainly on Leah's determination to allow Kit more freedom from his overprotective and overbearing father.
    Leah Shaw arrives to her new temporary post as governess to the Duke of Northam's son, Kit. She strives to improve and educate Kit, who is bound to his room. Leah dreams of traveling and loves her freedom but what happens when the duke has marriage on his mind?

    I enjoyed the bantering and dialogue between the characters. The cast is well developed and the story held my interest. This book has become my favorite along with The Earl's Honorable Intentions(Book 4).

    The author choose 2 Corinthians 3:17 as the inspiration and does a very good job of weaving that verse into the book. I believe the hero prays only once or twice in the book.

    I wish it was a little bit longer(would have liked more detail into the particular "gap" in the book towards the end)

    Clean Inspirational Regency
    Look forward the Evangeline's story!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Did she trade her freedom for love? 26 May 2014
    By Nancy H. - Published on
    Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
    This was the first Glass Slipper Brides book that I read. I enjoyed the "bossyness" of Leah Shaw, she knew right away what Kit needed. But what I liked the most about this story was the way that Leah and Hayden Latimer worked together for the good of Hayden's son, Kit. I understood why Hayden was so protective of Kit and I appreciated the way Ms. Hale let Hayden loosen his hold on Kit's surroundings. This was a great story of loving and letting go. I highly recommend this book.
