Right from page one I was instantly captured by Shana's book “The Making of a Duchess”. I could not put this book down, I was absolutely engrossed in Julian Harcourt's life. This book is so exciting that you will be on edge right to the end, and the end of this book is even more shocking. A great fast paced book, never once did it lack enjoyment or excitement. I will be reading the second book this series, and I can hardly wait to get started.
