STORY-LINE WINNING THE INDECISIVE DUKE BY JESSIE BENNETT:

Winning The Indecisive Duke, by author Jessie Bennett, a character driven story of family dynamics, love, and romance, will hold your attention;  providing hours of entertainment.  Jonah Boothe and Elizabeth Huntington engaged from the cradle, cemented families, lands, and friendship.  Both have been the best of friends their entire life.  So close, they are almost brother and sister; each feels they can not marry.  Their love is a love of siblings not romantic love of the heart.

Add in a twisted sister, Alexandra, rejected by the man she was to wed, a new arrival in the area, Daniel Forsley Duke of Athlone, and you have all the ingredients for a first-rate regency romance.  With two sisters vying for the Dukes regard, old jealousies, insecurities, and hatred will rise;  the Duke’s indecision in choosing his bride, plays one against the other.  Both sisters beautiful and poised, come from a good family;  making it hard for him to choose between them.

Who will win the Dukes hand in marriage?  Will Elizabeth and Jonah break the family contract to find their true loves?  Will Elizabeth’s sister, Alexandra, ruin any chance Elizabeth has to find happiness?  My reviews for romance novel, Winning The Indecisive Duke, follows.
