    3. Couldn't put this one down! I read the book in one entire sitting—until 2 a.m. This is a wonderful story that will grab your heart and not let go. Through incredible characterization, Chantal embroiders this delightful tale with a cast of secondary characters that will burrow into your heart. The plotting and pacing were right on the money, and Chantal gives us the added fun of not one, but several villains we can love to hate. You'll remember this one long after the happy ending.

    4. Simply delightful, no kiddingThis is a wonderful story about Amelia, the used and abused poor relation, and Basil, the Duke of Danbury. The Duke is raising his brother's two daughters, Jonquil and Sassafras who are about to make their come-out.They all meet one day at the dressmaker's shop when the girls are having a fitting and Amelia has accompanied her cousin Susan. The Duke asks Amelia if she could assist his nieces in preparing for their presentation to the queen.

    5. A clean regency romance with some delightful characters and a bit of history thrown in, “The Orphan and the Duke” is a prime example of a cute fluffy romance.Read full review in the 2016 November issue of InD'tale Magazine.
