Review: The Duke Heist by Erica Ridley
Absolutely brilliant book. The characters were marvellously written and the story was fantastic. The book made me tear up and it made me laugh out loud. The book is about the Winchester family - specifically Chloe - who are made up of children adopted by the late Baron "Bean" Vanderbean. After finding their beloved "family portrait" painting being stolen by Duke Faircliffe and replaced with a vase, the siblings decide to steal it back. Cue the adventure.. This book has so much heart and love and happiness and sadness and family - it's perfect for anyone who loves a Historic Romance (or even someone like me who just plain likes them). I am so excited for more books by Erica Ridley!
About the book:
Chloe Wynchester is completely forgettable -- a curse that gives her the ability to blend into any crowd. When the only father she's ever known makes a dying wish for his adopted family of orphans to recover a missing painting, she's the first one her siblings turn to for stealing it back. No one expects that in doing so, she'll also abduct a handsome duke.
Lawrence Gosling, the Duke of Faircliffe, is tortured by his father's mistakes. To repair his estate's ruined reputation, he must wed a highborn heiress. Yet when he finds himself in a carriage being driven hell-for-leather down the cobblestone streets of London by a beautiful woman who refuses to heed his commands, he fears his heart is hers. But how can he sacrifice his family's legacy to follow true love?
