One on the wrong side of the ocean.
Lost and wandering the woods, Wynne Theaton was surviving quite nicely until Rowen Lockton appeared. He saves her from getting trampled by a thief's horse, but then becomes insistent on showing her where she truly is...

One refusing to deny fate.
Fate tossed Miss Theaton into his path, and the Duke of Letson is not one to deny fate. But the woman comes with a host of problems, not the least of which is her belief that she is in another country.

An undeniable attraction neither expected.
He was not looking for a wife. She was only searching for home. But fate has very different plans for the two of them--if they can survive the secrets of the past, of the forgotten.

The sample should be a little longer. I almost did not buy this book because the sample seemed hokey. But based on how much I enjoyed other works by this author, I gave it the benefit of the doubt. I enjoyed reading this book as much as others by Jackson. Will help if you have read previous three books from prior series.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. One of the things I enjoy most about this series is how each book has such a different tone/feel to it. This book has a classic gothic novel feel to it, very much like what would have been popular in the regency era, but without the comic absurdity usually found in those books. I really enjoyed the heroine, Wynne’s, unique method of painting, it was an interesting and insightful concept. I don’t want to give anything away so I won’t go into more detail. As with the rest of K.J. Jackson’s books, I was drawn into the story from the beginning, found the characters engaging, and the twists and turns of the plot an enjoyable jaunt through the author’s imagination. I would definitely recommend this book to others.

Enough action to hold attention. Plot premise somewhat different than the usual.

I had just dragged myself thru a very boring superficial romance novel and decided to read Worth if a Duke. About twenty pages in I thought Now THIS is what a great book feels like! Kudos KJ Jackson for writing deeply emotional characters that keep you totally engaged until the last word. I purchased the next book in the series and hope it’s just as good!

Worth Of A Duke by K.J. Jackson is a brilliant historical romance. Ms. Jackson has delivered a well-written book loaded with amazing characters. Rowen and Wynne's story is packed with action, drama, suspense, humor and sizzle. I loved this book from cover to cover and look forward to reading more from K.J. Jackson in the future. Worth Of A Duke is book 1 of the Lords Of Fate Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read a complimentary copy of this book that I received from Bookfunnel.

I agree with some other reviewers that the beginning is kind of out there. Then you get past it and it does get better. In the beginning it was really refreshing that they worked out their little misunderstandings. Then what happens? You guessed it! A BIG misunderstanding. Which was kind of a let down. Was hoping for better from these characters. Went downhill after that for me. The other thing I was disappointed with was that we didn't learn more about the mom. I won't go into further detail about that to avoid spoilers, but I wish we heard more about the outcome there. I really did like that Wynne was an artist. Not many woman in historical romances are full fledged artists.vi liked her independence, and her badass survival skills. At the end of the day, this book was only ok to me. However, I think other people will really like this book. Happy reading!

I loved the unusual personalities to the characters. I did get a little anxious about the outcome of the story. In the end I was very pleased. A great read.

What is wrong with the publication of this book? Quite a few pages were doubled! And good luck reading the Epilogue! Pages 242 & 243 just kept repeating. And again there is a format problem with the dialogue. Isn't anyone proof reading? The hero held out such promise in the previous book, but somehow lost his qualities and he became tedious. And the heroine, just don't get me started. Lost in the woods? Really?

Story of a man and women both lost in life for different reasons. Finding each other but luck, they unravel the loss they suffer. Will love find them or will fate play a cruel game. Must read to find out for I will not be one to spoil it for any reader. Loved it and was well written.

This book had a new and refreshing story line. I couldn't put the book down once I began reading. I don't want to give anything away about the book, but it is a MUST read.

Well written and fast paced for the most part. The only issue i had was that Wynne was introduced as a strong, independant woman capable of coping with the emotional turmoil of mountain life. But as the story progresses she becomes little more than a sobbing mess for a good chunk of the book. She spends the majority of the book crying. And it got old quickly.
