Hey Everybody! I'm really excited to be a part of the Blog Tour for No Other Duke But You by Valerie Bowman. This is the eleventh book in the Playful Brides Series. I was provided with an arc through Netgalley for honest review. Thanks so much to St. Martin's Press and Valerie Bowman for letting me be a part of this fun tour.

Synopsis: SINGLE LADY SEEKS DUKELady Delilah Montebank has her marital sights set on the Duke of Branville. There’s just one problem: he barely knows she exists. But no matter, she’s got a plan to win him over with her charm, her wit—and perhaps the love potion she has in her possession wouldn’t hurt her cause...
Lord Thomas Hobbs, Duke of Huntley, thinks his best friend Delilah’s quest to become a duchess is ridiculous. He’s always said he’d rather give up all the brandy in London than commit to one person for life. Besides, he knows that Delilah’s love potion can’t possibly win over Branville…since she accidentally gave it to him instead. But perhaps this is the excuse he needs to show her he’s always loved her...
Delilah can’t believe she gave the potion to the wrong duke. Then again, Delilah could do a lot worse than win the hand of her handsome best friend. Could it be that the right duke has been before her eyes all along? (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: Fun, Fun, Fun! I really enjoyed No Other Duke But You. It had everything I wanted from a Historical Romance. It had the guy, the girl, the tension, all the things that make Historical Romances great!
This is the Eleventh book in the Playful Brides Series and I had not read them in order before coming to No Other Duke But You. I don't think that hurt me at all by reading it out of order. No Other Duke But You stands up fine on its own.
I really enjoyed Lady Delilah and Lord Thomas. I think they made a good match, their chemistry was off the charts. Delilah could get a tad annoying at times. They also really needed to work on communicating with each other, but other than that, they were cute!
I'd definitely recommend giving No Other Duke But You are read. If Historical Romances are your thing, then curl up on the couch with this one. I'm definitely going to read more of the books in the Playful Brides series.
