How To Marry A Duke by Sandy Blair
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This was a quick and mindless read. Exactly what I needed during a stressful week. The stories weren't well written - although that's usually my opinion about short stories because there isn't enough room for development, the author dumps all this information on the page and the reader is supposed to believe it.
