What the Duke Desires by Sabrina Jeffries

Late last night I finished What the Duke Desires by Sabrina Jeffries, which happens to be the first book in her latest series. Her new series is The Duke's Men. However, the Duke's men haven't formed yet, but this is the beginning of how they formed.

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.
