Book Giveaway: THE DUKE I ONCE KNEW by OLIVIA DRAKE


When two childhood sweethearts find themselves together after years apart, does their romance have a chance to be rekindled now that he’s a duke and she’s a governess? Olivia Drake’s new Unlikely Duchesses series begins with The Duke I Once Knew, where first love is always the sweetest...
For years, Abigail Linton devoted herself to caring for her parents and her siblings’ children. Now, eager to create a life of her own, Abby seizes upon a position as a governess on a neighboring estate. Unfortunately, her absentee employer is Maxwell Bryce, the Duke of Rothwell, the notorious rake who once broke her youthful heart. But since he hasn’t set foot on his estate for fifteen years, Abby assumes she’ll never have to lay eyes on him ever again. Then, from out of nowhere, Max appears. He is stunned to come face to face with the girl next door he fell for years ago―before he went away, and she stopped writing to him. . .even though Abby swears that he is the one who left her without a word. Could it be that this spirited, witty spinster has won Max’s heart all over again―and that they may have a second chance at love?

Jo Beverley wrote some wonderful historical romances. Sadly, she passed away a few years ago.

I really miss Beverly Barton's books! Judith McNaught is another that comes to mind, even though she does have a book releasing this month.

What a cute premise! As for writers I miss, I would love more from Jennifer Crusie--I think she's just not writing or not writing much these days :)

Liz Carlyle is a favorite of mine from years past but she has retired now so no more books from her. Also Theresa Medeiros is another author I miss. She hasn't written anything for several years now. Don't know if she officially retired or not.
