I absolutely adored this book. I'd been dying to know the Killer Duke's story and it absolutely did not disappoint. These books are such fun little romps. The heroines are smart and sassy. The heroes are rugged and total pushovers for the women they love. I highly recommend this series to everyone. Oh and I most definitely just pre-ordered the fourth book in this series as that little snippet at the end totally got me wanting to know Chase's story!
