About The Duchess Quest
Author: C.K. Brooke
Genre: Fantasy / Romance
Love is destined to find her…
Dainy doesn’t know that she is the lost Duchess of Jordinia, believed to have been assassinated fifteen years ago. Nor does she know that her uncle has implemented an illegal contest to seek her, offering her marriage hand as the reward!
Though at odds, three clashing rivals – including a noble giant, a forest dweller and a thieving rake – voyage together by woodland, prairie and sea to recover the lost royal, notwithstanding the assassins and spies at their tail. Soon, young Dainy is swept into a comically complex romantic quadrangle as each suitor competes to capture her heart.
Charmingly romantic and bursting with political intrigue, startling twists and vivid characters, readers of romance and fantasy alike will adore this original yet timeless tale of swashbuckling adventure and unlikely love.
C.K. Brooke has created a tale of romance and wonder with this first book of the Jordinia series. You start out wondering which of the three men who seek her will be the one who finally steals her heart. I changed sides so many times in the first half of the story, I think it wouldn’t have mattered which one won!
The Duchess Quest is an old fashioned historical romance, with some fantasy thrown in. Just enough to make it as interesting for historical fans as it is for fantasy fans. And the romance is awesome. Just the right amount of everything mixed together for a great story!
Highly recommended for all hopeless romantics, it’s possibly even acceptable for younger readers, but there is some sex. It’s well written, not too graphic, but still steamy! As always, read it first before taking my word on that!
