HeartofaDukeVictoria Morgan’s The Heart of a Duke is a historical romance with heart. Morgan tells the story of Lady Julia Chandler who is caught between twin brothers: Lord Daniel Bryant and Edmund, the Duke of Bedford. She is engaged to one - who is a rather nasty character -  but drawn to the other - who is everything his evil brother is not. The Heart of a Duke is Morgan’s second book and is one that is perfect for fans of historical romance. Julia and Daniel’s poignant love story is filled with intriguing twists and turns. The setup for the next book also had me hooked (Brett and Emily, I hope!!!). I could not put this one down. While the ending did not surprise – especially because of the title of the book – Morgan made it work. I was convinces that the resolution was the only way for this one to end. This is an author that readers should watch.
