Georgia Lennox has traded in her boyish ways for pink gowns and a coy smile to capture the eye of the Earl of Claremont. However, on the day she’s convinced the earl will propose, Georgia is shipped off to the Leeward Islands to care for her ailing father. But when she arrives on Nevis, the last thing she expects is to learn that her abrupt departure was not at her father’s bidding but that of the infuriating, yet captivating, island schoolmaster. And now her plans may well be shipwrecked. Harrison Wells is haunted by the memories of his deceased wife and hunted by the subsequent women who aspire to be the next Duchess of Linton. Desiring anonymity, he finds sanctuary in the Leeward island of Nevis. He’s willing to sacrifice his ducal title for a schoolmaster’s life and the solace the island provides. That is until unrest finds its way to Nevis in a storm of pink chiffon—Miss Georgia Lennox. As Georgia and Harrison’s aspirations break apart like a ship cast upon the rocks, a new love surfaces, but secrets and circumstances drag them into rough waters. Can they surrender their hearts to a love that defies their expectations?

Amazon: The Duke’s Refuge
I enjoyed The Duke’s Refuge very much. The story kept my attention throughout the entire story. The description of the island was beautiful. I could picture the scenes clearly.
The characters were great. They all came to life and were people you could relate to.
especially Georgia. She has quite the personality. I liked that she changed and grew throughout the story. The banter and conversation between her and Harrison was fun to watch.
Lorri Dudley weaves the Lord’s truth throughout the story. It added to the story and didn’t feel fake. His truth such as forgiveness, hope, and second chances.
I recommend this book to my family and friends.
I received this complimentary book from the publisher to read and give my honest review. All thoughts are my own.
