    1 thought on “One Night in London: The Truth about the Duke”

    1. I enjoyed this immensely, though I have mild issues as well. Part of my enjoyment is how well Linden managed the character motivations and how they drove the conflicts that produced such great tension throughout the story. Francesca is comfortable. She isn't rich rich, but she has everything she needs for a comfortable, even active life in her social set without needing to worry much about money or shelter or food. So she'd be all set if it weren't for her worry about a niece she has been cut of [...]

    2. I listened to this for the first time, but I have read it more than once, though it has been a few years since reading. So, what did my older, wiser self think in this re-read? I still liked it quite a lot, maybe not 5-stars like, but close enough to keep the rating. There are two issues that made me think about dropping a star. 1: The narrator. His voice is nice for men, but the lady and child characters are not the best. I also thought his voice for the Hero changed at the end for a bit, which [...]

    3. I enjoyed reading this book (and its two sequels) and really liked listening to the audio book. Gildart Jackson is a new narrator to me, and I adore his voice. I could fall in love with Edward de Lacey just by listening to him. He does, however, need to tweak his heroine a bit; she sounds like a middle-aged spinster aunt rather than a passionate half-Italian young English woman. I think that male narrators should avoid using a falsetto for female voices and just strive for a softer tone. That sa [...]

    4. 4.5*I really liked it. The narrator though, he made some stupid pauses when I so wouldn't have made them.

    5. There are a lot of things to love about this book. The three brothers who learn that their father has been married when he was young and re-married without knowing what has happened to his first wife (which might just make his three sons bastards) are all incredibly interesting: you have an older brother who relies on his family name's influence and doesn't seem to care about anything but his own pleasure who has to learn some responsibility if he wants to keep his title; the good middle one (Ed [...]

    6. One Night in London est le tome 1 de la série The Truth about the Duke, qui va suivre les aventures des frères De Lacey pour garder leur héritage à la mort de leur père, le Duc de Durham. Et accessoirement trouver l'amour (ben quoi, c'est de la romance)Alors le premier tome suit les aventures du frère cadet, Edward, qui est celui qui gère le domaine il a assisté son père pendant des années (à la place de l'ainé qui boudait à Londres et menait la belle vie)et a pris en charge totalem [...]

    7. Caroline Linden's "One Night in London" (The Truth About the Duke #1) Intelligent, appealing, attractive (as people, not just bodies and faces) main characters who fall in love almost against their wishes, growing and expanding their emotional horizons in the process, sizzling love scenes, a smidgen of conflict to be resolved - what more could a romance addict ask for? Really nicely-constructed, believable character-driven love story. (After second reading) Loved this one just as much on second [...]

    8. I struggled with whether to give this one, provided by netgalley, 3 or 4 stars, but settled on 4 stars for a number of reasons. Overall, I really enjoyed the story, the plot and the characters, although I struggled with getting emotionally involved in it.The story is based on a couple of unusual legal issues the hero and heroine are facing, not your normal HR subject matter, and it might have been nice to have actually had a bit more legal stuff up-front. Why not explain just a little how the di [...]

    9. Lady Francesca Gordon is determined to win custody of her young niece Georgina, especially because she has reason to fear for Georgia's safety. In order to hire the top barrister, she must first coerce Edward de Lacey. What begins as a battle of wills ends in love. There were several twists and turns in this story, and explicit sex. The child doesn't play an active role until late in the book. The overriding problem -- uncovering the truth about the old duke -- is not resolved. This is a series, [...]

    10. Caroline Linden is becoming a favorite of mine. I'm going back and reading books of hers and this is the first book in "The Truth About the Duke" series. Wow is all I have to say. The characters are so richly developed and intriguing, the romance fiery.

    11. Lord Edward de Laceys world is thrown for a huge loop following the death of his father. Edward and his two brothers are shocked to find out that their father has hidden a secret their entire lives and now it threatens to take away everything they know. Edward confesses the truth to his fiancee one night and is shocked and hurt to see it in the tabloids the next day along with an end to their engagement. Edward is at a crossroads of his life and is not quite sure what to do when in sweeps a most [...]

    12. bu yazarı seviyorum demek için 2 kitabını okumak erken olabilir biraz ama yinede diyeceğim:)Başta bi çekincelerim kızgınlıklarım vardı zaten diğer seriyi bırakıp bu seriye başlamaları sebebiyle ama okudukça bi sorunum kalmadı. Yanlız öbür seriyi de unutmasınlar lütfen o seride mutlaka çıkmalı hızlı bir şekilde.hikayede;bir dükün uç oğlu var dükün ölüm döşeğinde açıkladığı üzere bu üç oğulun gayrimeşruluğa düşmesine neden olacak bir durum var [...]

    13. da sognipensieriparole3, 5 - Prima di tutto una nota doverosa: l'edizione cartacea presenta una decina di pagine mancanti e vari refusi nel testo. Ora, lo sviluppo della storia si segue comunque, però non posso nascondere che ciò abbia influito in qualche modo sul mio apprezzamento complessivo.Inoltre si tratta del primo episodio di una trilogia e quindi la trama deve adattarsi, sia nell'avvio che nel finale, lasciando spazio a un inevitabile rinvio agli episodi successivi.Di certo il tema che [...]

    14. Here is another author whose books I've seen around quite bit but never got a chance to read them. I found this one while browsing through the romance section at my local library, which is not very big but it does have a good selection of titles. I was also pleased to see that it is the first of a series. I dislike reading a series out of order.The Duke of Durham has died. He has left his three sons, Charlie, Edward and Gerard a mess to clean up. There is a slight possibility that his sons were [...]

    15. I thought this book a bit different from the historical romances you normally read. Francesca is an independent woman, who (unlike the usual widow story) isn’t looking for a lover. She’s looking for an investigator/lawyer that will help her regain custody of her niece, taken away by her ‘evil’ stepmother. The problem? He’s been hired away by Edward, who is in dire straits after some shocking secrets are revealed upon the death of his father, the Duke.I think what really made this story [...]

    16. This was cute! Francesca and Edward were really well matched and had definite chemistry. The main thing that bothered me was that it was a little too sex scene-y for my taste - there must have been five or six, and at a one point they started to feel gratuitous.Also, I felt as though the Georgina situation was kind of unsatisfying. It definitely came across as quite rushed and I would have preferred a (slightly) more dramatic turnout, seeing as the build up pointed strongly in that direction.

    17. I am SO pleased that my first three reads of 2018 have been stellar so far - this, by far, is one of the best romances I've read. So good, in fact, that after I returned it to the library, I immediately plotted on how to get my hands on it again. I'd love a physical copy of the book but alas - the bookstores don't have it where I live. (To the Kindle I go!) Why do I love this so much? For one, the characters are wonderful - Francesca is a strong woman who is confident in her sexuality. Edward is [...]

    18. Okay, so I feel a little weird giving a book that I mostly enjoyed a 2 star rating, and I admit up front that it's probably not the most fair reflection of my overall enjoyment of the book. It is, however, an accurate reflection of how I felt at the end of the book, and that's how I justify the ratingYWAY. I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't go back to sleep, so I thought I'd start this book and see how it went. From the impression I got from the blurb about the book, I thought thi [...]

    19. Reading One Night in London was for me, rather like a date with a really great guy I just couldn’t muster up any enthusiasm for. There’s nothing wrong with the book. It just didn’t stir my reading passions.In this serviceable Regency romance, the heroine Lady Francesca Gordon needs a good lawyer. She’s convinced her young orphaned niece, Georgina, is being held against the child’s will by her stepmother for financial gain. Francesca has been turned down by solicitor after solicitor — [...]

    20. I've only read a couple of Caroline Linden books and while I've enjoyed them, I haven't really been blown away by any of her books yet but I'm still hopeful. This book starts off with the hero's father revealing a secret that has the power to ruin their family. It's a secret that rocked me on my ass because I kept thinking, "How in the world has he kept that a secret this whole time?" and immediately, Edward and his brother Gerard want to jump into action and minimize the destruction and scandal [...]

    21. ****This was provided to me by HarperCollins via NetGalley****Lord Edward de Lacey is a proper English gentleman, second son to the Duke of Durham. While his elder brother has quite the reputation for being a rake, and his younger brother a military hero, Edward is the responsible son who, alongside his father, oversees all matters of the estate. He has proposed to a lovely young English lady and they are set to marry within a few months. Things are all moving along smoothly for Edward are the e [...]

    22. Orijinali Kitap Esintisi adresinde.Caroline Linden benim Muhafazakar Aşk kitabıyla tanışıp çok sevdiğim bir yazar. Çünkü o kitabı öyle güzel ve eğlenceliydi ki, bu kadının kitaplarını direk okuma listeme aldığımı söyleyebilirim. Yeni kitabı çıktığını gördüğümde ise oley seri devam ediyor diye düşündüm ama bozguna uğradım. Malesef yayınevi başladığı seri yerine bambaşka bir seriye atlamış. Ben açıkçası Reece ailesini bekliyordum, özellikle de d [...]

    23. The cover for this book is preposterous, but also foreshadowing?So, I really liked this book. Both of the leads were wonderful, and I enjoyed how well the romance was integrated with the non-romantic plot. It goes something like this: Edward de Lacey, the second son of a Duke, has always been the responsible one. After his father dies, leaving behind whisperings of a possible first marriage that could invalidate the legitimacy of his and his brothers' birth and claim to the title, Edward sets ab [...]

    24. This is somewhere between 3* and 3.5*This was well-written except for a few Americanisms and anachronisms, not so severe to pull me out of the narrative though. The prose was fine, in some places even lyrical and original, without becoming gimmicky or pretentious, or flowery. I really liked this prose, I read it through fast and easily, well-engaged to all my senses. Maybe "non-fussy" is a good description.I very much liked the hero, who was no alpha-male rake, instead he came over as someone st [...]

    26. Edward de Lacey is the second son of the Duke of Durham. And as his father dies, Edward learns that the old man had been keeping a very big secret. It seems the Duke was married before he met Edward's mother --and never divorced. If that comes to light, not only will Edward and his brothers lose the estate, but their legitimacy as well. So Edward rushes off to the finest lawyer in town, hoping to secure his family's future.He has no idea Francesca has hopes of using the very same attorney to hel [...]

    27. Maybe 3 1/2 stars. Interesting first book in a trilogy about three brothers who are the sons of a Duke who has just died. There is a continuing story line throughout all three books about the challenge to the brothers' legitimacy and therefore a thread to their inheritance. Each book has a self-contained, separate plot as well and ends with a HEA for that brother, though the ongoing plot about the dukedom continues. The first book is about the middle brother. He is a very contained, dutiful, and [...]

    28. An engaging story about an interesting couple.Francesca is trying to win custody of her niece but has trouble finding a solicitor willing to take her case. After a long search one finally accepts, only to rush off and refuse her in order to take a more important case. Francesca is desperate and in her anger she confronts the man who unknowingly "stole" her solicitor away.Edward de Lacey, the recipient of her anger, is trying to ensure his brother's claim to the dukedom after a scandalous revelat [...]

    29. I think this might be the first Caroline Linden book I've read but I really liked it--not sure how much of it was that I liked the setup/character types because they are tropes I enjoy vs. the book itself.I do love the proper, dutiful and steady hero vs the spunky but sensible widow setup a lot. There's nothing earth shaking about the plot: they both have separate problems, there's no "big misunderstanding"--it's just a slightly angsty read about two people who are immediately attracted to each [...]

    30. Original one-star reviewThis is a perfectly middling story, but I refuse to give a good rating to a book that ends with a cliffhanger designed to tempt us into buying the next book in the trilogy. Upon rereading . . . I confess that my temper got the best of me after the first reading, which ends with the arrival of a mysterious letter after the wedding of Francesca and Edward. Perhaps if it had been styled "Epilogue," I would not have been so unpleasantly shocked. I thought, though, that there [...]
