Product Description

When Persephone Lancaster receives a marriage proposal from the ill-tempered Duke of Kielder, she refuses — and then reconsiders. The obscene sum of money he’s offering Persephone would save her family from ruin. With her characteristic optimism, she travels to the far reaches of Northumberland to wed a greatly feared stranger.

Lodged deep in a thick forest infested with wild dogs, the Duke’s castle is as cold and forbidding as the Duke himself, a man with terrible scars on his body and his soul. But the Duke’s steely determination to protect his heart at all costs is challenged by his growing attachment to his lovely and gentle bride. With caring persistence, Persephone attempts to pierce the Duke’s armor and reach the man beneath. Yet he cannot tolerate such exposure, and his repeated rejections take their toll. But when grave danger arises, the Duke realizes he must face the risk of revealing his true feelings or lose the woman he cannot live without.

This book is one of my absolute favorites. The Dangerous Duke makes me crack up!! But it’s also sweet how such a tough, seemingly unfeeling man could fall so in love. This book is so sweet and romantic, while being funny at the same time!!

Cute and enjoyable

Fun read

Regency Romance with a little Greek Mythology
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

This was an audio book listen read by Audrey Warren (one of my favorite readers). This book was kinda a Regency-Era revamp of Greek Mythology, an odd mix, but not bad. The writing wasn't too bad. I did feel like Adam wasn't given much to redeem himself. The mother's story was empty, to me. But all-in-all, I enjoyed it.

A slow study in love.

Written beautifully, the author slowly develops the relationship between a scarred, inhibited man, Adam, and his new, shy, but caring, wife, Persephone. As slow as the shelling of a pomegranate, the story develops along a symbolic course with the tale of Hades and his Persephone. It gave new depth to the myth, and I was happy to have been so enriched.

Believable Romance

I loved this book! I bought it online based only on a good review I read. It was definitely worth the risk. This story is incredibly romantic.

The author took her time developing the romance and by the end I was as in love with the hero as Persephone was. The story has a "Beauty and the Beast" feel to it and is one I will read again and again.

Great Regency!

If you love humor, romance, and a clean read, you'll love Seeking Persephone. Sarah M. Eden has made quite the splash in the LDS market with her regency romances--no, they are not LDS in the least--but they are clean romances with great characters and fabulous plots. Seeking Persephone is Sarah's 3rd release. Other titles include Courting Miss Lancaster and The Kiss of a Stranger. Both equally excellent as well.

Entertaining Regency Book
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

The Duke of Kielder must marry if he wants to prevent his male cousins from becoming his heir. At 27, he is known for his temper and feared by many. His only hope is to marry a lady from a poor family with many siblings. Miss Persephone Lancaster fits those requirements.

I would have enjoyed a little more depth to the heroine. I would have easily given it 5 stars if it were longer and flowed a little better from scene to scene.

Clean romance. Fun book with interesting characters, book has a nice font size.
