Review: The Duke Heist (The Wild Wynchesters #1)

 Review: The Duke Heist (The Wild Wynchesters #1) by Erica Ridley

A NYT bestselling author kicks off a new Regency series of "irresistible romance and a family of delightful scoundrels" as a woman looking to recover a stolen painting accidentally kidnaps a duke instead. (Eloisa James)

Chloe Wynchester is completely forgettable—a curse that gives her the ability to blend into any crowd. When the only father she's ever known makes a dying wish for his adopted family of orphans to recover a missing painting, she's the first one her siblings turn to for stealing it back. No one expects that in doing so, she'll also abduct a handsome duke.

Lawrence Gosling, the Duke of Faircliffe, is tortured by his father's mistakes. To repair his estate's ruined reputation, he must wed a highborn heiress. Yet when he finds himself in a carriage being driven hell-for-leather down the cobblestone streets of London by a beautiful woman who refuses to heed his commands, he fears his heart is hers. But how can he sacrifice his family's legacy to follow true love?

Plot: This was such a fun read! How Chloe and Lawrence's relationship began was so funny, and it had me laughing!

Characters: While the plot was fun, it was the characters that made this book truly wonderful! Chloe and her siblings were such a charming, quirky, and funny group. If we're lucky enough to get books about all the Wynchesters finding love, I'm most looking forward to stories about Jacob, and Elizabeth!

The Cover: I like it! Her dress is beautiful!

Overall: This was an excellent Historical Romance book, that I highly recommend reading! :)

I received a finished copy of this book from the publisher.

Sisters Hope, Faith and Mercy have everything: fame, success, money and beauty. But what Hope wants most of all is love, and it doesn’t matter how far she has to go to find it.

Mini Review: Geek Girl is one of my favorite books, so when I saw Holly Smale was releasing a new series, I knew I had to read it! This was a cute read, with a nice message at the end. I'm interested in reading books about Faith and Mercy. (Which is what I think the next two books in the series will be about?) Overall, an enjoyable read, with plenty of Holly Smale's signature humor throughout the book!
