Why Dukes Say I Do by Manda Collins


With her whirlwind social life in London, Lady Isabella Wharton has little interest in the customs of the country. But when her godmother asks her to pay a visit to her bachelor grandson in Yorkshire, Isabella can’t refuse. It behooves her to please the old dowager, since she harbors one of Isabella’s most scandalous secrets. So off she goes to see the newly-titled—and notoriously rustic—Duke of Ormond…

Trevor Carey doesn’t care about what goes on behind ballroom doors. He is content with the simple life—and isn’t ashamed to admit it to a society flirt like Lady Isabella. But the country air brings out a different side of Isabella—one full of longing and passion. Can her sophistication be hiding a desire for love? When a blackmailer from the city arrives to threaten Isabella, Trevor will shield her from harm—even travel to London. Can the duke tackle the
ton on Isabella’s behalf …and manage to keep her all to himself?

I enjoyed reading this book. With it being set back in the old times when dukes and duchess were around. I never learned much about these times. It was very interesting to see how someone explains those times with all of the maids and servants and how they traveled in carriages and not by plane as we do now. I really liked all of the details of the book.
It was hard to learn that Isabella was being blackmailed and by someone that was so close to her. I did not like the fact that her husband beat her so bad at times that it made her miscarry her unborn baby. I do love that Trevor fell head over heels for her from day one. I was surprised when he announced at the ball that they were going to be married after only knowing each other for a short time. This is a good romantic book for all to read.
