Title: The Good, the Bad, and the Duke (The Cavensham Heiresses #4)
Author: Janna MacGregor
Stars: 4 stars
A great historical romance that was able to keep my interest from beginning to end. Our heroine is in love, from an early age, with our young, second son, of a Duke. Move forward 16 years and we find our second son has become the Duke after the death of his older brother and father which is a title he does not want. In addition, owing to his life style up to that point, he has alienated the heroine's family and extended family. Is it possible for the heroine and hero to rekindle their love and rejoin severed family relationships? Do miracles still happen? You will be rooting for this couple from the beginning to the end of this excellent story.

Lady Daphne Hallworth is ready to celebrate the holidays with her family. But when they accidentally leave her home alone, Daphne uses the time to work on her dream—opening a home for unwed mothers. But her quest isn’t problem-free: She’s in a battle to win the property for the home against her brother’s best friend-turned-enemy, Paul Barstowe, Duke of Southart. And that’s not all: someone has stolen her personal diary, which holds secrets that could devastate her family. Daphne has always harbored private feelings for the man her family scorns…though perhaps striking a bargain with the handsome Duke will solve both their problems?
Paul, long considered good for nothing, aims to open a hospital to honor his brother and restore his reputation. So when a conflict over the land brings him straight into Daphne’s life, they make a deal: He will help her find her diary if Daphne can change her family’s opinion of him. But before he can win her family’s affection, he has to win hers first. Maybe love was the answer to their family feud all along?
