A bride wasn’t in his plans . . .

The last thing Marcus, the Duke of Autenberry, expects to see after sleeping off a night’s drunken shenanigans is a woman being auctioned in the village square. Before he can think about the ramifications, he buys her, thinking he’s winning the girl her freedom. Instead, he discovers he’s bought a wife.

A duke wasn’t in hers . . .

Alyse Bell is almost rid of the shackles that bound her in a name-only marriage, but the day her friend promised to purchase her in a wife auction, he vanishes, leaving her to face a mob of unsavory bachelors intent on owning her body and soul. But the appearance of a wicked, wealthy stranger changes her path forever.

The road to ruin . . .

Marcus doesn’t know what to do with the impertinent chit who clearly isn’t duchess material! Insisting their marriage isn’t legitimate, they leave for his estate in Scotland, hoping to devise a plan to get rid of each other. However, on a journey fraught with misadventure, their attraction grows and Marcus realizes he’ll do anything to keep this fiery woman for his own.

I'm super excited to get into another Sophie Jordan historical romance, it feels like it has been so long since I have read one, and even though The Duke Buys a Bride is book 3 in The Rogue Files, but it didn’t really matter, as this book could totally be read as I have done!

The Duke Buys a Bride is unlike any historical romance who have ever read, we begin with the book where our hero the Marcus the Duke of Autenberry, awakes in a face full of manure, on his way out of town he manages to buys a "wife" and heads North to live in on an Island in Scotland, but nothing about this tale go smoothly, and in true Sophie Jordan style this book keeps you captivated from the very first page.

The Duke Buys a Bride is a very well written book, that has you sides hurting from laughter, but also fills you with concern and gives you that big heart dose of romance we all crave!

I give The Duke Buys a Bride 4 stars.
