How to Find a Duke in Ten Days by Grace Burrowes, Shana Galen, Carolyn Jewel

For centuries, the volumes of a priceless Renaissance manuscript, The Duke's Book of Knowledge, have been the subject of legend and rumor. Three members of London's Bibliomania Club have promised a beloved professor they'll find the manuscripts before the professor retires. They are determined to vindicate his faith in the Duke's existence while rescuing a great literary work from obscurity. The problem? The book must be found in ten days. Matters of the heart intrude as each book hunter realizes that locating an ancient manuscript might just lead to happiness ever after.

The Will to Love by Grace Burrowes

The Earl of Ramsdale is convinced that his late uncle's will holds the key to finding at least one portion of a long-lost Renaissance manuscript. The only person skilled enough to translate the will in ten short days is Miss Philomena Peebles, who has no patience with handsome, presumptuous earls. Will Ramsdale find the fabled literary treasure, or lose his heart to the last woman he should propose to?

How to Steal a Duke (in Ten Days, Give or Take a Few Days, But Definitely in Less than a Fortnight) by Shana Galen

Dominick Spencer, the Duke of Tremayne, is a powerful man used to having his way. When he and three other members of the Bibliomania Club set out to find the lost volumes of The Duke's Book of Knowledge to present to their favorite Oxford professor, Dominick takes his task seriously, even hiring a cat burglar to help him gain entry to a remote castle in Cornwall inhabited by a mad earl.

Rosalyn Dashner knows accepting the duke's assignment is dangerous, but her impoverished family and sick brother need the money. The daughter of a gentleman, Rosalyn is not impressed by titles. She's not impressed by the haughty duke until she comes to know the kind but lonely man under the gruff exterior. The duke might be looking for a manuscript, but she's found a man she loves. When Rosalyn must risk her life to obtain the manuscript, will Dominick choose her or his quest for the Duke's Book?

The Liber Ducis de Scientia – The Duke’s Book of Knowledge – has never been found even though Professor Phineas Peebles claims it exists. Three former students of his from Oxford want to procure the elusive volume to thank the professor upon his retirement in ten days. And three wonderful authors relate their exploits while they find love. The Will to Love by Grace Burrowes Ms. Burrowes’ erudition, her mastery of the English language, and her wit dazzle in this very romantic – and quite enlightening – novella. Philomena and Ramsdale are very well drawn, engaging, and this is a charming, sweet and often quite amusing story. How to Steal a Duke (in Ten Days, Give or Take a Few Days, but Definitely in Less than a Fortnight) by Shana Galen You would not expect Shana Galen to write a sedate little tale, now would you? This novella is filled with action, very unexpected twists, and clever little surprises. Dominick is staid and very proper duke, who displays unusual personality traits I found endearing, and Roslyn and bubbly and very ingenious. This is a riveting story with a bit of a Gothic vibe, and Ms. Galen’s writing is as smooth and polished as ever. I actually wanted more of this story! And the icing on the cake is the perfectly delightful The Viscount’s First Kiss by Carolyn Jewel. This novella was simply wonderful! Magdalene is slightly older than Daunt, not exactly beautiful, yet Daunt is profoundly enamoured of her mind, knowledge, and cleverness. And so was I! Daunt is flirtatious and charming, yet very honourable, and has been pining in secret for Magdalene, and he was simply irresistible. While they search, research, and despair over finding the elusive tome, they get closer while conversing, and it is so beautifully written that I was left breathless. I could see the library, the books, Magdalene and Daunt, as clearly as if they had been in front of me; just gorgeous. The writing is indescribably beautiful, elegant, and so dazzling that the sheer beauty of it all nearly had me tearing up. Most of the action consists of sifting through books, chatting, a little seduction, and I wouldn’t change a word. Positively enchanting! The perfect epilogue concludes this wonderful anthology; all the interrogations are answered, and all the loose ends are tied with quite a bit of flair and a dash of romance! I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

This is an historical romance anthology from three talented authors. Judging from its title, I had pre-conceived notions about the plots. The title is actually playfully misleading. I won't spoil that for anyone, but the main focus of the storyline is very original and intriguing. I enjoyed all three novellas, and they all left me wanting more. Burrowes was sweet with her signature dry wit and included a sharply intelligent heroine to happily root for as she stepped up and reached out for what she wanted. Galen's featured a spunky fearless heroine who I loved and a duke of a hero who learned the lesson of what's truly important in life. Jewel's followed a friends-to-lovers trope with a slightly older widow and her neighbor who has secretly loved her for quite some time. This one included a music room scene that was ! I loved that the heroine from each story was a strong, intelligent, passionate woman, and the gents were neither disapproving or threatened by these ladies. I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This anthology features 3 members of the Bibliomania Club who want to find “The Duke’s Book of Knowledge” for their favorite professor who is retiring. Some say the book, or rather the books, as there are four volumes, does not exist. Dominick, Duke of Tremayne, Seton, Earl of Ramsdale and Harry, Viscount Daunt do believe they exist and have 10 days to find them before Professor Peebles retires. Seton hires Prof. Peebles’ daughter, Philomena, to translate his uncle’s will as it is in Latin. There may be clues in the will and in his library. Best line from Seton: “please don’t bid me farewell when we are quarreling.” Dominick believes there may be clues at a remote keep, The Temples, on the Cornwall coast. The problem is it’s on the cliffs, partially surrounded by the sea and a mad earl lives there. Rosalyn, whose family has come on hard times, meets the Duke as she is trying to escape from an attempted theft. He saw her climbing the wall and prevents her arrest as he wants to hire her to climb into the keep, which she does. The keep’s lady has told them all the books were sold after her husband died. Harry has travelled to his estate as he has bought the contents of several private libraries hoping to find “the Dukes”. Magdalene Carter, his neighbor, is now a widow. Harry has loved her for a long time and hopes she will help him go through the new books. They both want to find the missing volumes. I really enjoyed the premise of this book but was very disappointed in the ending. I was expecting an epilogue with Prof. Peebles retirement party. While the reader knows if they did, or did not, find the books we are left wondering about Prof. Peebles reaction.
