Redemption of the Duke by Gayle Callen

For the past couple of days I haven't been feeling well. Fortunately, I was able to finish Redemption of the Duke by Gayle Callen. The Redemption of the Duke is the third book in the Brides of Redemption books. By the way, don't have to worry about reading the previous books to read this book. Redemption of the Duke can be read as a stand alone. Anyway, my thoughts on the story.

At the beginning, we meet Adam Chamberlin who happens to be the Duke of Rothford. Now Adam has been looking for a friend's sister, so he can rectify a wrong in the past. Once Adam finds Faith Cooper, she basically forgives him and tells him she doesn't need any help. So, Adam manipulates the situation in a way that forces Faith to accept his help.

Overall, Redemption of the Duke is a pretty easy going read. The conflict in the story pretty much dissolved by the time we get to the end. Honestly, I wouldn't consider Adam a real rake, because he kind of became that way to live up to his brothers expectations. Deep down Adam was a decent guy, who wants to do what's right. So, Adam faces his inner conflict finding his true self. Faith was an all right character. At times she was just so focus on trying to do things for herself. There were a couple of characters I just wanted to throat punch, for instance Adam mother and his sister-in-law. In the long run, Redemption of the Duke is a nice read. Nothing too exciting or memorable about the story, but the story is well written. So, if you are looking for an easy going read, you might consider Redemption of  the Duke.
