Love Affair with Classic Tales

How the Duke Was Won (The Disgraceful Dukes, #1)How the Duke Was Won by Lenora Bell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

As Sarah MacLean likes to say, “this reviewer is highly unreliable” 🙂 This is my debut romance novel and the “book of my heart.” It’s very loosely inspired by the classic tale of CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY (with a dash of The Bachelor and a sprinkle of Cinderella). If you read closely you’ll catch some subtle nods to the classic tales. For example, my heroine’s name is Charlene Beckett (get it?) and her duke is obsessed with creating the perfect drinking chocolate and he needs an heir to his fortune.

I hope you have as much fun reading this book as I had writing it! I can’t wait to introduce the next books in the series which were inspired by THE WIZARD OF OZ and ALICE IN WONDERLAND.
