Dainy doesn’t know that she is the lost Duchess of Jordinia, believed to have been assassinated fifteen years ago. Nor does she know that her uncle has implemented an illegal contest to seek her, offering her marriage hand as the reward! Though at odds, three clashing rivals – including a noble giant, a forest dweller and a thieving rake – voyage together by woodland, prairie and sea to recover the lost royal, notwithstanding the assassins and spies at their tail. Soon, young Dainy is swept into a comically complex romantic quadrangle as each suitor competes to capture her heart. Charmingly romantic and bursting with political intrigue, startling twists and vivid characters, readers of romance and fantasy alike will adore this original yet timeless tale of swashbuckling adventure and unlikely love.
I would give this book four stars! There were many things I enjoyed about The Duchess Quest including the author’s writing style and attention to detail as well as the plot of the book. The names were somewhat hard to pronounce, but I came up with nicknames to make the story flow more easily. I liked how the book jumped from character to character with each chapter. I also enjoyed how the author wrote the action scenes. Everything in this book came together nicely. Congrats to the author for her publication. I would read more from this author.
