A Duke by Default: Reluctant Royals

We rated this book:


In the second book in the Reluctant Royals series, the story follows Portia, the best friend of the heroine in the first book. Portia has been the flighty screw up of her family for as long as she can remember. Her wheelchair-bound sister is the head of a successful website empire, and her rich parents have given their girls a lavish upbringing. Portia is struggling to find her own way. After committing to sobriety and an end to one-night-stands, Portia leaves New York to start a sword-making apprenticeship in Scotland. She gets more than she bargained for when she meets gruff and sexy Tavish, her new boss.

This book does overplay the will they/won’t they aspect of this otherwise interesting romance. Original, intelligent characters keep readers immersed in the story, even as they expound a little too long about why they should absolutely never get together with the object of their affection. The details of Portia’s job and her journey of self discovery make for compelling secondary storylines to the steamy forbidden romance. Readers looking for a romantic escape from the real world for a while will find just what they need in Cole’s Reluctant Royals series.
