Title: Duke of a Gilded Age Author: S.G. Rogers Genre: Historical Romance Review Rating: Five Stars Reviewer: Linda Hays-Gibbs Diverting: Refreshing and Enjoyable Wesley Parker, the twelfth Duke of Mansbury is a strapping handsome young man raised in Brooklyn, NY. He has no idea how to be a Duke. His mother is Lady Frederick. Her husband was killed in an accident and they were living in abject poverty before the Eleventh Duke of Mansbury's death. Mr Oakhurst and his beautiful daughter Annabelle Oakhurst traveled to America to tell the Duke of his inheritance. They were not expecting the boy they found. Wesley was brawling on the streets of New York and the police brought him home to his mother as the Oakhurst's were having tea with his mother. Later, they embark on the journey to England and encounter icebergs and shipwrecks, along with thieves and murderers. The excitement does not end when they arrive in England. There is unrequited love, really bad fellows to fight and excellent balls and proposals. It's a feast. This is just an example of how this story sets the cadence for excitement. There is never a dull moment. We have a deep and abiding love story between Belle Oakhurst and Wesley, even though she is already engaged to Errol, and Wesley's friend Stephen is smitten with her too. The main characters are growing and evolving right on the pages of the book. The sub characters are favorites too. I especially enjoyed Cavendish, Wesley's valet, Stephen and Louise. You will enjoy this historical romance. I heartily recommend this book especially if you like this genre. I was most impressed with the ingenuity and suspense. I gave it Five Stars and believe everyone will enjoy this adventuresome tale of escapades and love. It is sure to inspire. Thank you S,G. Rogers for such a lovely book. Sincerely, Linda Hays-Gibbs
