"Skillfully crafted and exquisitely written, Burrowes' latest is pure gold; a brilliant launch to a promising series."—Library Journal, starred review
"I loved this book. Burrowes writes with such expressive precision to tell a story of such complex emotions, a detailed network of plot threads and characters whose motivations are as complicated as they are heartfelt...This is a story that spans the gamut of human emotion... Burrowes is a writer of towering talent...The lens with which I will view historical romance has been forever changed."—USA Today Happy Ever After
"An extremely touching love story, and its finely calibrated shifts in tone are possible because of the author's exhaustive knowledge of the period. Burrowes has spent her career rejecting the rosy, musty myths of the Regency, and My One and Only Duke is her most vivid, compelling portrait of the era yet."—BookPage, "Best Books of 2018"
"Sexy heroes, strong heroines, intelligent plots, enchanting love stories...Grace Burrowes's romances have them all."—Mary Balogh, New York Times bestselling author
