About Much Ado About Dukes:
Shakespeare meets Bridgerton in this witty and lively marriage-of-inconvenience romance.
As far as William Easton―the Duke of Blackheath―is concerned, love can go to the devil. Why would a man need passion when he has wealth, a stately home, and work to occupy his mind? But no one warned him that a fiery and frustratingly strong-willed activist like Lady Beatrice Haven could find a way to get under his skin…and that he might enjoy it.
Lady Beatrice is determined to never marry. Ever. She would much rather fight for the rights of women and provoke the darkly handsome Duke of Blackheath, even if he does claim to be forward-thinking. After all, dukes―even gorgeous ones―are the enemy. So why does she feel such enjoyment from their heated exchanges?
But everything changes when Beatrice finds herself suddenly without fortune, a husband, or even a home. Now her future depends on the very man who sets her blood boiling. Because in order to protect his esteemed rival, the Duke of Blackheath has asked for Beatrice’s hand, inviting his once-enemy into his home…and his bed.

About the Author:
USATODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR, Eva Devon, was raised on literary fiction, but quite accidentally and thankfully, she was introduced to romance one Christmas by Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory novella, The Present. A romance addict was born. She devoured every single Lindsey novel within a few months and moved on to contemporary and paranormal with gusto. Now, she loves to write her own roguish dukes, alpha males and the heroines who tame them. She loves to hear from her readers. So please pen her a note! email@example.com

Once in a while a girl just wants to get lost in a bit of fluff. Was a time when all I read was historical romance novels and then I eschewed them for the longest period. Now I find that they are just the thing now and again. Full of handsome men, beautiful women and titles, castles, money, and beautiful gowns. Escapist fantasy at its best.
All follow a somewhat similar plot; man and woman who don’t like each other at first meeting swear to never fall in love and then lo and behold – passion and happiness will out. Much happens in between the first meeting and the first child, as their is ALWAYS as child, but when you are looking for delivery from the mundane a good romance will just take you away.
This is a good romance.
Our heroine is far more interested in women’s rights than she is getting married. And as for our hero, he feels his life is just perfect as it is. No need for any nattering females filling up his day. But then of course these two meet and as we all know, the rest is Much Ado About Dukes. The course of love will not run completely smoothly but love always wins out, doesn’t it? You will have to read the story to find out for sure.
