With her regal bearing, Felicity Langley has been called `Duchess' since she was a child. Barely making it on her monthly allotment of pin-money, Felicity would do whatever she could to ensure her unconventional family and servant's well-being by providing a season for her sister and cousin and by marrying a wealthy duke. Carrying on a lengthy correspondence with the Duke of Hollingsworth, she is on the brink of finally meeting him and sealing their betrothal. What Felicity didn't know was that the man she'd been corresponding with was not Aubrey, the newly titled duke of Hollingsworth, but his match-making and controlling grandfather.
Aubrey had thought to escape the controlling tendencies of his grandfather years ago by changing his name and joining the army under the name of Thatcher. As a second son, he never dreamed he would have to assume the title. Returning home and learning of his grandfather's mechanisms to again control his life, Thatcher immediately set out to...
first off, this is a book that's a part of series. first two books:
something about emmaline this rake of mine
secondly, THIS IS NOT A STAND ALONE BOOK. there are so many references to the previous book and it's plot, along with a number of secondary characters who pop up from that book and play a somewhat pivotal part of this storyline, that it's recommended you read at least THIS RAKE OF MINE before this one. otherwise, you're bound to feel as though you started reading this story in the middle, as i did when i began reading it.

This is my first book by Elizabeth Boyle and despite the negative reviews, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Love Letters from a Duke is a wonderful story and the case of mistaken identity and the power of love. It is a fast-paced tale of a woman that will not just allow life to happen, without her quirky input. But sometimes love needs a little help. From the opening pages of when Felicity meets the grubby duke in his travelling clothes, and she in her woolen socks, and thinks he's her new footman, makes for extremely fun reading. The bk keeps you captivated till the end. Loved the chemistry between H/H and enjoyed the secondary characters of her crazy household too. Some scenes had me grinning, especially the early ones, when Brutus meets the new duke.
The plot may not be very strong, but hey, if you like light-hearted regency read, then this ones worth a try.
