How to Marry a Duke - Vicky Dreiling

Tristan, the Duke of Shelbourne is a man with a mission: find a wife he can tolerate as long as they both shall live. Love is not necessary--nor desired. But how to choose among a dizzying array of wealthy-yet-witless candidates? Hire London's infamously prim and proper matchmaker. Then pretend she's not the most captivating woman he's ever met...

Helping a devilish Duke create a contest to pick his perfect mate is the kind of challenge Tessa Mansfield relishes. Her methods may be scandalous, but she's determined to find the notorious bachelor more than a wife--she'll bring him true love. Yet when Tessa watches the women vie for the Duke's affections, she longs to win his heart herself. And after a stolen kiss confirms Tristan's desire, Tessa knows she has broken a matchmaker's number one rule: never fall in love with the groom

 I won this book off a give away, and all I have to say is I LOVED it so much! Such great charactors! I admit I usually am kind of iffy on reading authors first books out unless they have a million good reviews... cause lets admit sometimes they really are horriable... But this one captivated me from begining to end! I was up at 3 AM because I couldn't sleep and got this book the day before in the mail and couldn't put this book down. I really can't say enough good things about it! I love how they first met. How she just rambles, my husband says I do that all the time. They are such a good pair! This is a pretty clean book , definitly not a sex on every page one, which i'm glad for it, I liked how the charactors developed and got to know each other as people. I also liked the theme of the book "Things happen for a reason". I really can't wait till July when the next book comes out!
