Penelope is summoned to London for a season against er wishes. She would much rather stay behind and with her botany specimens. Drake is told to take Penelope under his wing for her first season. Even though Penelope is described as social inept, Drake is still intrigued.
Drake tells her he needs a wife of social importance and should look for a suitor elsewhere. He regrets it immediately and sets out to win her heart.
I enjoyed reading as the spark of sexual tension turned into a inferno of desire and the discovery of true love.The book was a combination of steamy romance and old fashioned comedic romp. You will not be disappointed with The Duke's quandary.

Really enjoyed this easy to read story. The characters were fun loving and Penelope allows us to see an independent young women of the times being able to think for herself. I like both Penelope and drake.

A nice lighthearted read,

Great story, able to hold your attention, different from the usual romance. The author shows great skills when developing the main and sub characters.

Loved the people involved, interesting, they were so real,human with flaws and you felt great empathy for the hero and heroine.
Loved the humour between the main leads in the story, the alpha male who tried but,could not help himself, he eventually surcomes to our leading ladies charms , her innocence, yet she had strength he admired. Loved it!

You should buy this book, it's easy to read and pure escapism, most uplifting.

I liked it because Penelope wore glasses and had a brain and managed to attract the alpha male who was also really lovely. A good book filled with characters that were grey rather than black and white.

Fairly enjoyable read, characters were ok, heroine was a bit annoying. Story bit far fetched. It was a disappointment after how good the elusive wife was. Shame this was not as well written and characters not as believable. Felt a bit rushed. Not bad though.

I wasn't sure I had read any books by this author but her name was familiar to me so decided to dive in. Part of the way into the book, there is a character that I found very intriguing - Lord Coventry - so decided to search out his story only to realize I had read it. It's The Elusive Wife (Marriage Mart Mayhem Series Book 1) and I did enjoy that book a lot.

In this book, we have Lord Coventry's friend Drake, now a duke since his father's passing, realizing it's time he chose a bride. He wants the "purrfect" lady partly because his father chose a marriage based on love and Drake's mother turned out to be somewhat of a hoyden. Drake doesn't want to make that mistake so sets his eye on a lovely lady he believes will suit him. But, when fate lands the cute little bluestocking, Penelope Clayton, in his arms - he may not have much to say about the matter.

His mother has taken Penelope under her wing for The Season hoping to help Penelope find a husband. But... Penelope's way more interested in learning about plants and writing papers on her discoveries under a male pseudonym. Yes, it's all been done before, but here we have it again in this story. One of my favorite storylines is that of the bluestocking and the handsome hero who all the ladies are after. I thought this story was fairly one dimensional and not nearly as well written as "The Elusive Wife."

Still, I pushed forward to the end and found some enjoyment out of the book. All in all, Drake was more interesting in "The Elusive Wife" and not enough was made of Penelope's character. She was just "too" much of everything - a bit too clumsy, a bit too awkward, a bit too muddy. I would give this book 2 1/2 stars, but upped it to 3 stars for the review.
