Miss Abigail Wright, disillusioned spinster, hides her secret pain behind encouraging smiles and optimistic laughter. Self-pity, she believes, is for the truly wretched. So when her mother insists she attend a house party-uninvited-she determines to simply make the best of it...until an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction. Alex Cross, the "Duke of Ice," has more than earned the nickname given him by the ton. He's given up on happiness but will not reject sensual pleasure. After all, a man has needs. The week ought to have been pleasantly uneventful for both of them, with nature walks, parlor games, and afternoon teas on the terrace...but for some inferior stitchery on poor Abigail's bodice. And now the duke is faced with a choice. Should he make this mouse a respectable offer and then abandon her to his country estate? She's rather pathetic and harmless, really. Oughtn't to upset his life whatsoever. His heart, however, is another matter...

Some stories drag on with nonsense taking up pages and you feel the editors would have done everyone a favor by insisting the author do some cutting. Not so with this story. You will love the emotion of the hero and heroine and wish it was longer. Can’t spill any storyline secrets. I don’t want to even give any hints. Be sure to read the epilog.

Lady Saves The Duke is the newest offering from Annabelle Anders, available February 6, 2019. Ms. Anders handles what could be a touchy subject matter with dignity and consideration. Some characters you root for to find love and passion, others you root for a small bit of happiness. Lady Saves The Duke had me rooting for a sliver of happiness for everyone and crying a little bit over the turns life can take. Miss Abigail Wright is a 27 year old ruined spinster. Her scheming mother finagles Abby and cousin Penelope an invitation to a country house party. The Earl has three single sons, one a viscount! It's too good an opportunity to pass up and Abby's mother still wants marriage for her, ruined or not. Abby is a lovely character in many ways but my favorite is that she's not a skinny-ninny. Girls got curves and stretch marks. Well hello, reality. Alex Cross, Duke of Monfort is attending the party in order to look over the Earl's modern improvements to his estate. He's certainly not interested in a group of foolish young ladies. Alex is a widower nicknamed the Duke of Ice. He's closed off, very duke-ish and likes it that way. He's stuck with Miss Wright for an afternoon boat ride thanks to the maneuvers of the Earl's daughter. Things get awkward and he leaves the party early. Unfortunately he's "ruined" Abby again! They were seen, gossiped about, and she's now a double ruin-ee. Although he doesn't truly understand why, he proposes to Abby to save her reputation and anyway, he needs an heir. It's interesting to witness their journey to a happy ending. They are strangers, drawn to each other but scared of being hurt again. There are secrets and situations to overcome, of course, but along the way they have fun. Both learn to laugh again. Don't miss the wedding, it's a hoot! The epilogue is sweet and I teared up. The Lady Saves The Duke could also be the Duke Saves The Lady. Might I suggest cousin Penelope have a HEA of her own? Happy reading. #AnnabelleAnders #LadySavesTheDuke #TheWildRosePress

Every story this author pens is exceptional. But I was not prepared for the emotions this one brought up because I could feel the despair of the heroine as she tried to make the best of a bad situation! Thinking back on my youth, I could remember a few of those feelings myself! What to do when you end up at a house party and are almost pushed to the attention of a Duke? Not just any duke though, but one labeled the "Duke of Ice"! My heart went out to Abigail and Alex because they both had been through so much. When fate seems to bring these too souls together in an unexpected way, I could only cheer and hope that they could heal each other! There are so many words I want to say about this story but I will leave it to you to find out what happens. Annabelle Anders is a master storyteller creating captivating characters that pulled me into the story as she brought them alive! Her insightful descriptions and wonderful words weave a story that will not be soon forgotten. I highly recommend this book and every one she has written! Lori Dykes
