A Duke in the Night is the first story in Kelly Bowen's brand new The Devils of Dover series and I really liked it a lot. I did a combo of reading an ARC and listening to it. Both I enjoyed immensely. This story revolved around two very complex characters that had brought a lot of baggage into the relationship. It was heartbreaking and heartwarming watching August and Clara work through each others preconceived notions of one another.
To read a story involving strong and smart characters with plenty of flaws, is refreshing and checks that box of "relatable" every time.
I must praise the prose as well in this story. It's another thing that contributed to my enjoyment of it.
"The wide copse of trees and brush in front of August had become a portrait of gilded foliage as the sun began its descent, a low fence running just to the north creating shadows the color of dark amethyst across the tall grasses. The sky was now awash in brilliant, almost blinding color, dotted with crimson-and-topaz-lined clouds."
For all of you out there that have never read this author, I'd urge you to do so and you may as well grab this one to start.
For the fans of this author, I would say it's worth getting the Audible because the narration of Ashford McNab is spot on.

Kelly Bowen is fast becoming an automatic buy for me. I loved this story. The heroine’s strength, intelligence, and independence was wonderful. I hope that the secondary characters in this book get their own story!
