What the Duke Desires by Sabrina Jeffries
I absolutely love Maximilian Cale, Duke of Lyons. He's the most pompous, arrogant, and obnoxious duke I have met in a story. He really wears his title like he owns it, and he has no problem telling those around him he's a Duke. However, one young woman gives him trouble, Lisette Bonnaud.
Now Lisette is the illegitimate daughter of a Viscount and an french actress. It's one thing to illegitimate, but it's a whole other ballpark when you throw in a french actress. Mainly the french part. However, she rolls with and has decided not to risk her heart and fall in love or get married. Sounds like a great plan. We all know how great plans end up, yep out the door.
Max is looking for Lisette's brother, Tristan, but he's having a hard time finding him. Of course, he wants the problem taken care of without any problems. However, he never encounter a most stubborn hardhead woman in his life. Lisette fiercely loves and protects her family, even from the likes of a Duke. Oh no she wouldn't the information Max is seeking, she took into her hands to come along with him to figure out what's going. Which leads them all over the place.
I absolutely adored What the Duke Desires, because you have two strong personalities trying to find the truth. Both believing the other is wrong. I love how Max has no clue how to handle Lisette, because she isn't like any other woman he has known. It truly turns his world upside down. I was laughing at those two through most of the book, because they just butted-heads. While they were butting-heads they were also fighting their attractions to one another. So, if you are looking for a fun read with two strong personalities, you might want to checkout What the Duke Desires.
