The Duke's Perfect Wife-(Highland Pleasures #4) By Jennifer Ashley

Lady Eleanor Ramsay is the only one who knows the truth about Hart Mackenzie. Once his fiancee, she is the sole woman to whom he could ever pour out his heart.

Hart has it all--a dukedom, wealth, power, influence, whatever he desires. Every woman wants him--his seductive skills are legendary. But Hart has sacrificed much to keep his brothers safe, first from their brutal father, and then from the world. He's also suffered loss--his wife, his infant son, and the woman he loved with all his heart though he realized it too late.

Now, Eleanor has reappeared on Hart's doorstep, with scandalous nude photographs of Hart taken long ago. Intrigued by the challenge in her blue eyes--and aroused by her charming, no-nonsense determination--Hart wonders if his young love has come to ruin him or save him..... 

Sam's Review:

This feels like the book in the series that everyone has been waiting for. The elusive and closed of Hart Mackenzie finally gets his happily ever after with his true first love and the woman that he never forgot.
If you have read this series, you know that Heart is a widower, his wife and new born son having passed away tragically. He is one of the wealthiest men in the country and is beyond powerful. But Hart has some very dark secrets lurking that may just come out to bite him when he least’s expects it.

Hart has everything he wants and is on the cusp of becoming Prime Minister. All he is lacking is a wife. So when Eleanor Ramsey comes storming back into his life, he declares to himself that he will not let her get away this time and vows to marry her. Hart never forgot Eleanor or the passion they once shared. But with Hart having become the hardened man that he is today, can Eleanor see through that to the man she once new that lurks beneath.

I have to say that is was such a nice change to fall back into the world of Historical Romance. I haven’t read one like this for a long time and it was such an easy transition -  it helped that the book was written flawlessly – it made me wonder why I haven’t jumped back into this Genre sooner.

It was such an enjoyable read with the perfect amount of what seemed like everything. With a nice case of ‘the world does go on without you’. It was fantastic getting to know Hart; he was always such a mystery. Eleanor was just a perfect Heroine. She was head strong, determined and so very passionate for a woman of her era.  Seeing the rest of the family involved in the story just makes it all seem so real. I love it when an author continues giving us glimpses into couples from past books.

The heat between Hart and El, was scorching. For a book of this era, these two were ahead of their time! Hart is slightly a Dom in the bedroom and likes to do a lot of naughty things that would certainly have had them in trouble back then.

If there is anything bad to say about this novel, you won’t hear it from me. It was such an easy read, and I cannot wait for another in this wonderful series.
