The Scandalous Love of a Duke by Jane Lark Review

Isolated by life and choice, John Harding, the Duke of Pembroke, sees an angel in a pale mauve dress across a room and is drawn closer as lust grips firm and hard in his stomach. 
The wheat-blonde hair escaping her dull dove-grey bonnet and caressing her neck lures his eyes to a spot he'd like to kiss.  She speaks with animation her hands moving. Then as if she senses his gaze the stranger turns and looks at him. A rush of pain and longing spilled from Katherine's heart into her limbs...

It was so long since she'd seen John but her reaction was the same as it had been more than half-a-dozen years before. She loved him, secretly, without hope, but a chasm of years and status stood between them.

The Scandalous Love of a Duke is a beautifully written book. It made me laugh, cry smile and get angry, but by the end I fell in love with the main characters John and Katherine.
This book actually is actually four stories and one, but it has been beautifully woven together. I have come away from the story wishing there was more. How does Katherine's relationship continue with her parents? What becomes of some of the characters? I don't want to go into too many details, as that would spoil the story. In some places it seemed to drag on and in others it seemed like the moment was over in second, though I have a feeling that, that might be my impatience.
The Scandalous Love of a Duke earns 9 out of 10 as it is a beautiful love story.
