An Unfamiliar Duke - Blog Tour and Giveaway

At eleven years of age, Rosalind Ainsworth was convinced that Sebastian Lumley, the future Duke of Kelbrook, was the most odious young man she’d ever met. And ten years later, after having had no contact with the nobleman in the intervening time, her opinion of him has not changed. Unfortunately, neither has the marriage contract their fathers signed soon after her birth.

As Rosalind’s twenty-first birthday and the appointed wedding day approaches, Sebastian makes a rare appearance in London. His first meeting with Rosalind since childhood goes less than perfectly, but Sebastian has a compelling reason for honoring their marriage contract—a reason outlined in a document kept behind his workshop’s locked door.

After a quick wedding, the new couple relocates to Finley Park, where their acquaintanceship slowly blossoms into affection. But when Sebastian’s secretive work threatens their fledgling relationship and Rosalind’s life is placed in jeopardy, Sebastian finds himself forced to choose between the man he has pledged to help and the woman he has come to love.


Sian Ann Bessey has done it again with An Unfamiliar Duke. This is a story of an arranged marriage and the couple getting to know each other.

I love the way their interactions are written as much as I love getting to know the characters as they get to know each other. This is a fantastic story and may be the best yet in this series.

The opposition is vile, which makes their getting to know each other even sweeter. Rosalind and Sebastian are great characters that are also struggling to get to know themselves. This makes for a beautiful story that took me away to another world for a few hours. I am looking forward to going back.

I received an early copy from the publisher through netgalley and this is my honest review.
