Yours Truly, The Duke is the first novel in the historical romance Say I Do trilogy about dukes needing to wed to tap into their wealth by New York Times bestselling author Amelia Grey.
Fredericka Hale needs a husband, and fast. She’s been caring for her deceased sister’s three young children, and now a childless cousin has petitioned the court for custody. Fredericka is powerless to stop her, but having a husband might sway the ruling. The last thing Fredericka wants is a hurried-up marriage to a man she doesn’t know—much less love, but she’ll do it for the children. So when the handsome Duke of Wyatthaven shows up with a proposal, she accepts. He'll help her, and in return, they’ll lead separate lives. But distance cannot keep them from their powerful attraction.
At the top of his game in London, the Duke of Wyatthaven has no interest in marriage. However, if Wyatt doesn’t marry by week’s end, he’ll lose a sizable inheritance from his grandmother. When Wyatt’s solicitor finds Miss Fredericka Hale, Wyatt considers this little hiccup solved. Miss Hale is lovely, and intelligent. Most importantly, she prefers country life to London, so he’s free to continue his life as usual. But when circumstances force Fredericka and the children to show up at the duke’s door, Wyatt can’t deny he’s always been under her spell. Will the duke give up his bachelor lifestyle and give into the fiery passion growing between them?

Amelia Greg brings another impeccably written regency romance with Fredericka and Wyatt, who enter a marriage of convenience and soon find that there’s nothing simple about their marriage. As the two navigate small children running amuck, a nemesis attempting to take away said children, and their own feelings for each other, Yours Truly, The Duke maintains a well written story alongside the romance.
Amelia Grey is a masterful author. I was extremely fortunate to receive an ARC of Yours Truly, the Duke, from Netgalley.
The Duke of Wyatthaven and Fredericka Hale
have a marriage of necessity. Wyatt needs to marry to protect his inheritance, and Fredericka to gain custody of her orphaned niece and nephew. The witty conversations and electric sparks that flew between the characters made my heart beat so fast it wqs exhilarating... I couldn't wait for them to finally acknowledge their true deep feelings for one another. A truly fantastic story!
I began reading and I instantly started enjoying the book. The characters were great and their personalities worked with each other. The story was interesting and engaging, which I thought was a new and fresh storyline. I highly enjoyed it and highly recommended reading it.
Get ready to fall in love with a new series by beloved historical romance author, Amelia Grey. Set to come out on March 28th, Yours Truly, The Duke is the first book in the Say I Do Series and if you love marriage of convenience with adorable kids, then you’re going to love this one!
This might be one of my favorite historical romance reads ever! I adored the new family element in this book and the way Fredericka and Wyatt realize their feelings for one another.
The marriage-of-convenience trope was so well-written in this book and I loved the way two people living their separate lives grew to change their lifestyles a bit to open up and accept the other. The children in this book were fabulous characters as well and the topics such as childhood custody, grieving family members, and dealing with past ghosts and trauma were all present and interwoven perfectly into the story.
While this book is on the mild side of steamy, we do get some action that would make any London Lady fan themselves.
Overall, I adored this series and cannot wait to read the rest of this series when it comes out and explore some of Grey’s backlist!
*I received an ARC from St. Martin’s Press in exchange for my honest opinion.
I've read many books by Amelia Grey and I can tell you without a doubt that this is by far my favorite.
I absolutely love how Fredericka and Wyatt pushed each others buttons but in the end, brought out the best in each other and complimented each so well.
The spice level is less than a lot of the books I've read by her, but I found that it totally worked with this book.
I can't wait for more books, hopefully with the other two dukes!
