Why read it?

1 author picked The Duke and I as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

I am so glad this book is such a success. I fell in love with the hero right away, when as a child he had trouble speaking and his father rejected him. He grows into a hard man until he meets Daphne Bridgerton and then the story takes off. What fun! 

From Bobbi's list on great hunks for heroes.
