The Duke’s Secret Cinderella Book Tour

Hello Ink Drinkers! Welcome back. I’m here with another bookish tour hosted by Turn the Page Tours. This is The Dukes Secret Cinderella by Eva Devon. This is book 3 of the Never a Wallflower Series, however each book can be read as a standalone. I would like to thank Entangled Publishing for a copy of this book. This book is available Feb. 21st from all major retailers.

Charlotte Browne could just kick herself. What on earth possessed her to tell the Duke of Rockford that she is a lady? But something about the duke’s handsomeness and kind intelligence makes Charlotte blurt out the teeniest, tiniest falsehood. Now it’s too late to admit she’s just plain Charlotte of no particular importance—with cinder-stained hands, a wretched stepfather, and no prospects for marriage…

Rafe Dorchester, Duke of Rockford, has done what every self-respecting duke must do—avoid marriage at all costs. But the only thing stronger than the duke is his mother. When she lays down the highest ultimatum, he’ll need to find a duchess. Immediately. Only, when he calls on a potential bride, he instead finds the pert, fresh-faced Lady Charlotte. Rafe was warned to never mix the business of marriage with pleasure, but when it comes to her…oh, business would be a splendid pleasure.

One passionate, illicit kiss sends Charlotte fleeing, leaving only a delicate blue ribbon behind. For Rafe can never discover her secret, or it will ruin her beloved sister’s chance at marriage. But the duke knows that when you’ve found the one person that ignites you, body and soul, nothing can keep you away.

This is not your typical Cinderella story. First off, we have a Regency retelling which I didn’t think I would be a fan of, but I was instantly hooked from page one. The evil step-mother that we are used to? Try an evil step-father on for size.. oof. A caring step-sister and a step-brother whose no better than his father… but the kicker? None of the kids are loved? Like what??

No, not your typical Cinderella story indeed. This author has really taken this story and made it her own. This entire story kept me hooked, there was never a dull moment. I am so happy I was chosen for this tour because this is not a book I would have picked up on my own. Who would’ve known such a small book would’ve made such a big impact. Well done. 4/5 stars
