One Night with a Duke
One Night With A Duke by Sandra Masters is the story of two
people from different sides of society, yet they were destined for
one another. The story follows Raven, the Duke of Ravensmere,
who has sworn to seal off his heart against the dangers of love,
and a stunning widow named Samantha who also has high walls
around her heart. Cold and reclusive, Raven promised himself that
he would never allow himself to love again. The loss of his wife and child was hard enough on him so that he closed himself off and became reserved.
His life takes a sudden turn when he meets with the beautiful Samantha who helps him in his time of need. With a simple kiss, she sealed her fate with him; however, at that time, they had no idea what would happen. With the death of her husband, Samantha never wanted to make herself vulnerable again. However, the sparks between them are too fiery to ignore. And when Raven finds himself at risk once again, Samantha has no choice but to stand by him. The chemistry between them is strong and, little by little, they both start to let their guard down. But will they get the chance to be truly together?
Fast-paced, entertaining and sizzling, the novel is an intense romance that makes you fall in love with the characters. I literally breezed through the novel in one sitting because I did not want to stop reading or put the book down. Many historical romances have a tendency to read the same, but not this one. Raven is dark and mysterious, while Samantha is even more interesting. Together they make a potent mix that makes this novel stand out from other historical romances. The characters are well-developed right from the very beginning and they continue to grow as the novel progresses. Sizzling and too good to put down. It was like reading magic!

THE DUKE'S MAGNIFICENT BASTARD
Sandra Masters has created a story and a setting that will transport readers to exciting places. Thorn Wick is a character
that I enjoyed a lot and it was fun navigating the complex world of his heart and feeling the pain he carries within him by being a bastard son. The writing is beautiful and reads with an unusual fluidity. The setting is beautifully captured, thanks to the author’s masterful use of descriptive prose. The dialogues are well-crafted and they have a lot of depth with great realism injected into them. The Duke’s Magnificent Bastard is a delightful story with characters that will stay with readers for long; it is entertaining, well-paced, and designed to keep readers turning the pages."
A FIVE-STAR Review by Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite
MY DIVINELY DECADENT DUKE is the second decadently delicious helping in The Duke romance series by author Sandra Masters. It has plenty of titled and jaded aristocracy, opulent settings, and enough scandal to make today’s reality show producers green with envy."

ONCE UPON A DUKE is sure to make your heart flutter, your belly get butterflies, and your palms itch to clutch the shirt of a Duke of your very own. Sandra Masters has managed to create a read that titillates, but doesn't put all the goods on display right away. You've got to EARN your romance here and boy is it worth it!
