My Divinely Decadent Duke is a historical romance from The Duke Series by Sandra Masters. Lady Cassandra Montgomery’s plan to secure a better future for herself and her ward, Alicia, goes awry when she is jilted. She also knows her sister-in-law, Felicity, is vindictive and detests her. Cassandra proposes marriage to Gordon, Duke of Althorn, a womanizer who came to her rescue, in exchange for looking after his sick mother. Althorn has misgivings about the marriage, but his attraction to Cassandra is strong so he agrees, setting a few requirements of his own which she reluctantly accepts. When the Dowager’s health begins to improve, Cassandra decides to change their living arrangements, much to Althorn’s disapproval. However, unforeseen circumstances alter her plans when Althorn becomes ill and other lives are endangered.
My Divinely Decadent Duke is a nice romance novel about an amiable young woman who yearns for a happier lifestyle, free of scandalous gossip that affects her, and a duke known for his rakish charms and curious past. This is also one of the novels from Sandra Masters’ Duke Series that follows the curious life of one of its main characters, Duke Gordon Althorn who struggles with his own personal problems. I found this very interesting. Sandra Masters has included an enlightening Author’s Notes section giving brief historical information on places, noteworthy events and persons relevant to the era the story is set in. Her writing is clear, descriptive, and comprehensible so readers will gain knowledge of events from the previous novel.
