by Julie Garwood
Of all the dukes in England, Jered Marcus Benton, the Duke of Bradford, was the wealthiest, most handsome -- and most arrogant. And of all London's ladies, he wanted the tender obedience of only one -- Caroline Richmond.
She was a ravishing beauty from Boston, with a mysterious past and a fiery spirit. Drawn to the powerful duke, undeterred by his presumptuous airs, Caroline was determined to win his lasting love. But Bradford would bend to no woman -- until a deadly intrigue drew them enticingly close. Now, united against a common enemy, they would discover the power of the magnificent attraction that brought them together...a desire born in danger, but destined to flame into love!
Rebellious Desire was extremely cute. I enjoyed Caroline's character, she was strong and definitely put the handsome, stubborn Bradford in his place. The storyline was sweet, sassy, and romantic.
I have never come across a Julie Garwood book I disliked, she has wonderful writing style. If you enjoy historical romance, she is an author to look up and try out, if you are not already familiar with her work.
