Review: How to Lose a Duke In Ten Days by Kate McKinley
How to Lose a Duke In Ten Days
Lucas Alexander, the ninth Duke of Arlington, is a man who gets what he wants. So when he sees the alluring Miss Pippa Welby from across a crowded ballroom, he vows to make her his. But the bold and spirited Pippa has sworn never to marry into the haute ton. Now Lucas must win her the only way he knows how—one wicked kiss at a time.
The daughter of a wealthy tradesman, Pippa has been sneered at by the upper echelons her entire life. So when the duke arrives on her doorstep with an invitation to her own engagement ball—to him—in ten days, Pippa hatches a daring plan. She must lose the duke before the ball, or risk losing her own heart.

Random Facts About Kate…
Favorite Book: There are several, of course. Anything by Anne Stuart or Joanne Lindsey to start. But my all-time favorite is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. I'm a sucker for dark, tortured heroes. They get me every time.
Favorite Fictional Character: Who else? Mr. Darcy. *Swoon*
Favorite Films: The Anne of Green Gables series, and Pride and Prejudice (the A&E version. I'm an A&E version purist, if there is such a thing).
Astrological Sign: Scorpio. Watch out!
Addictions: Lattes and True Blood. Can't get enough of either one!
When I first started reading romances I just loved reading historical's. As I because more into the romance genre my tastes moved on and away from it. I still read some of my favorites, but not that many. One of the things that will make me want to read a historical is the setting, and the title. How could anyone pass up a title like, "How to Lose a Duke In Ten Days"? I knew right away I wanted to try it and I'm glad I did. I really enjoyed the story line and found it to be well written. I also loved the characters, and the humor they brought to the story. I think you'll find that Lucas is fooling himself through most of this story. The poor man needs to open his eyes and his heart. You'll love what Pippa does to his life. He needs a woman like her to balance him out. This story is both charming and heartwarming. I can wait to read the next book in the series. Happy reading!
