Lit Wallflowers: School for Dukes – For the Duke’s Eyes Only with @bookstakatie

Adventure time with the antiquities hunters and former best friends in “For the Duke’s Eyes Only” by Lenora Bell!

Lady India Rochester and Daniel Bonds, Duke of Ravenswood were the best of friends until one day they were ripped from each other’s lives. These two who have been betrothed since they were in leading strings and looked forward to their marriage until distance turned into secrets and Daniel had to keep India at bay.

Indy aka Lady Danger continued to explore dirt and became an archeologist while Daniel pretended to be a rake while being Indy’s competition. In order to move forward with her research, she infiltrated an antiquities club for men only to figure out she’s looking at a fake Rosetta Stone. So Daniel’s next mission was to track down the stolen stone. Indy insisted on going with him to Paris because she can verify what’s real or fake, but the only way that happened was to pretend that their formerly “dissolved” betrothal was back on.

When we grow up with someone during years when foundations are learned and laid in our being, they will know our core and mannerisms. Sometimes, the person we trusted the most hurt us to protect us. But when the pull to each other is strong, communicating to fill in the blanks can do wonders. And you may find visiting the wonders of the world together in the future. Join us with Duchess Katie as we discuss childhood friends to enemies to lovers, India and Daniel!
