One Night with the Duke by Jodi Ellen Malpas Release Blitz

One Night with the Duke. Belmore Square Series.

Million‑copy bestselling author Jodi Ellen Malpas is back with a scorching Regency series, perfect for fans of Bridgerton.

It's 1814 and nineteen‑year‑old Eliza Melrose is about to be launched into London's high society—much to her dismay. The last thing she wants is a husband.

Eliza's “misplaced” thirst for adventure, knowledge and the creative word is a bone of contention for her father, who battles endlessly to keep her curiosity and ambitions in check, for women are not meant to ask questions or give opinions in matters of business.

But then she meets the youngest son of the late Duke of Chester, a disgraced nobleman who is shrouded in mystery and proving quite impossible to resist...

Sexy, scandalous and utterly unputdownable, this is the Regency novel you've been waiting for!

The duke is merely a man like all others. Dreadful. Still, he is rather pleasing on the eye. Rather? Oh, Eliza, must you be so coy? He is devastating!



Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I do not read a lot of historical romances, it is not my favorite genre; but when one of your favorite authors writes a historical romance, you have to give it a try, and so I did.

I have to say that I really enjoyed this story, living life through 19-year-old Eliza as if I was by her side. She was a strong, young woman, trying to be independent. But in 1814 it was unheard of for a young woman to do anything but get married, have children, and run her household. Eliza didn't want any of that and to be set up to marry a man she didn't love was something she detested.

Meeting the Duke of Chester has set her mind whirling and her body on fire. Eliza doesn't know what to do with either, all she knows is she wants to see him again and again. But does she believe the rumors about him and his family?

As I said, I really enjoyed this one and I hope you give it a chance too. It is a good story with a suspenseful aspect that will keep you hanging because you will want to know what happens in the end.

One Night with the Duke is the first in a new series by Jodi Ellen Malpas, Belmore Square. As a fan of historical romance, I was eager to read this author's take on the genre.

Eliza Melrose is a strong, independent nineteen-year-old young woman, born in an era when women were seen more as dependents/property of the men around them (fathers and husbands). It's frowned upon for Eliza to speak her own mind, setting boundaries and knowing her own worth seen as stubbornness. Writing news articles on the sly, Eliza wishes to pave her own path. A husband is the last thing she wants, until the new Duke of Chester steps into her path.

The Duke of Chester throws Eliza for a loop, the intense chemistry she feels for the brooding man simmering to a boil. Johnny Winters brings the swoon-factor, which is one of the most important factors in the historical romance genre. Johnny is brooding, demanding, and stern, yet melts for Eliza by the end of the novel, doing away with his rakish ways. Everything a reader is looking for when it comes to historical romance.

Society, drama, twists, romance, and angst, there is a healthy dose of feel-good humor to balance out all the feels. I highly recommend One Night with the Duke to fans of Jodi Ellen Malpas, but do caution old-school historical romance readers, as this is more of a contemporary take on the genre, the voice of the characters more modern than befitting the era of the novel.



He is so very rude. And deadly handsome. And quite irresistible. Goddammit.
