A Duke in Time (The Widow Rules #1) by Janna MacGregor – Get ready for lost wills, broody dukes, and scorching hot kissing all over London in A Duke in Time by Janna MacGregor.
Katherine Vareck is in for the shock of her life when she learns upon her husband Meri’s accidental death that he had married two other women. Her entire business, along with a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be a royal supplier, is everything she’s been working for and now could be destroyed if word leaks about the three wives.
Meri’s far more upstanding brother, Christian, Duke of Randford has no earthly clue how to be of assistance. He spent the better part of his adult years avoiding Meri and the rest of his good-for-nothing family, so to be dragged back into the fold is…problematic. Even more so is the intrepid and beautiful Katherine, whom he cannot be falling for because she’s Meri’s widow. Or can he?
With a textile business to run and a strong friendship forming with Meri’s two other wives, Katherine doesn’t have time for much else. But there’s something about the warm, but compellingly taciturn Christian that draws her to him. When an opportunity to partner in a business venture brings them even closer, they’ll have to face their pasts if they want to share each other’s hearts and futures.

Review of A Duke in Time
A Duke in Time is the first book in the Widow Rules series by Janna MacGregor. A steamy historical romance with chemistry that is off the charts. I was pulled in after reading the first page and did not want to put this one down. The characters are well-written and develop at a smooth, steady pace with intriguing backgrounds that slowly come to light at just the right time, making it easy to get lost in the story. A Duke in Time reads like a movie, and I cannot wait for the next book in the Widow Rules series by Janna MacGregor. *I received a complimentary copy in exchange for a review.*
