A Good Day To Marry A Duke tells the fictional tale of one such 'dollar princess', Daisy Bumgarten, whose family found a fortune in silver in Nevada. Strong-willed, spirited, and seeing absolutely no reason why she can't do whatever she wishes, Daisy commits a social faux pas of such epic proportions in New York that her family have no choice but to launch her in London and hope she can snag a title high enough to smooth over such past indiscretions.
Did I say epic proportions? When Mrs John Jacob Astor herself condemns you as a brazen hussy without breeding, manners, or taste... only a duke will do to make amends. Realizing the magnitude of her mistake and the fate her actions may have condemned her three younger sisters to, Daisy is determined to make herself into the perfectly marriageable debutante.
The only problem is that the selected duke, while young, reasonably handsome and really quite sweet, is frankly as dull as ditchwater. His younger brother, on the other hand, is everything Daisy knows she should stay well away from. Unfortunately, Ashton doesn't seem inclined to stay well away from her.
Can I just say how much I absolutely adored Daisy? Her unquenchable spirit was so refreshing to read, and I really didn't know until the end exactly how things were going to turn out. This is the first in a series called Sin and Sensibility, the next book to feature Daisy's younger sister Frances, and I cannot give A Good Day To Marry A Duke higher praise than to say I am absolutely itching to read the next in the series. Bravo, Betina Krahn. This was amazing, well-researched, beautifully written and with characters I utterly adored. Five stars.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book for review through NetGalley.
She set off to London, with her Uncle Red. Daisy has engaged the assistance of the Countess of Kew as a sponsor for her proper introduction to the ton. She capped her eyes on Arthur Graham, the Duke of Meridian. But it was Lord Ashton Graham, the second son, brother to the Duke who made her heart go aflutter.
Daisy's mind and heart are in conflict involving Arthur and Ashton. Their family's acceptance in the highest echelon of society back home lies in her decision to choose a husband wisely.
I admire the heroine's indomitable spirit, her commitment to duty and affection for her family, but a love triangle is not a trope I'm partial to.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. This is my honest review. All opinions are mine.
Now, under the Countess of Kew’s tutelage, Daisy appears the perfect duchess-in-training. Until notorious ladies’ man Lord Ashton Graham brother of the Duke of Meridian, a distraction of the most dangerous kind, glimpses her mischievous smile and feisty nature—and attempts to unmask her motives.
This was a fun read & had me smiling nearly all the way through. Daisy is feisty, Ashton seems to be just a rake but during the book he’s revealed as far more. Arthur is charming & very put upon by his Aunts & Uncles but gradually his eyes are opened. The pace is well paced, the characters are well portrayed I especially liked Uncle Red & hope he has his HEA, he was definitely working on it!

This is a wonderful book. Betina Krahn does historical romance so well. The language, manners, societal nuances— reading Krahn is like wrapping up in your favorite comfy blanket. So satisfying.
I thought Daisy and Ashton were terrific. I enjoyed the traipsing across the countryside in search of noble ancestors. I thought Krahn’s portrayal of Arthur was very nuanced— while preoccupied with butterflies and such, he was actually more a product of deliberate sheltering than obtuseness. I loved Uncle Red. Not as laugh-out-loud as some of Betina’s other books but satisfying nonetheless.
I don’t agree with the lower ratings. Looking forward to the remaining books in the trilogy.
This story is not exactly a "clean" romance in that there is quite a bit of passionate kissing and "almost" situations, but it just makes the story more fun than shocking or uncomfortable. Definitely a PG13 (or maybe 16?) rating--definitely not an R.
This book is filled with Krahn's finest storytelling. Characters come alive on each page, complex plotting, entertaining wit and delicious "will they or won't they" scenes that scorch the pages, endearing secondary characters. I can't wait to read Book 2 of the Sin and Sensibility series.
Betina Krahn rocks!!
