Marry or find herself penniless and ousted from her aunt and uncle’s home. Those are Miss Juliana Drake’s current options. Having never felt the need to know how long she could survive without basic provisions, she chooses the latter. Only she knows as much about charming a suitor as she does about charming a snake. Nothing. The solution? Colin Lewis Francis Latham, Duke of Herstshire. The man who offered her marriage years ago, then vanished without as much as a by your leave. When he returns to London and offers to instruct her in the art of husband hunting, Juliana is both insulted and desperate enough to accept his offer. She’s no longer the gullible young woman of her youth. She can handle being near him without losing her head. Although, it would be much easier if she could finally expel him from her heart.

This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

This is a non spoiler review, because you as reader need to read this book. Also, I feel sometimes I have in the past gave away to much of the plot line. This has diminished the pleasure for would be readers.

Designing His Duchess by Gabrielle

A sweet inclusive regency romance of second chance love, and forgiveness.

I was completely charmed by this novella, and enjoyed the storyline and it’s characters.

In a twist of fate Colin Lathan is thrown into a unwanted role of the role of the Duke of Herstshire.

Julianna Drake is an orphan, living in the care of her uncle and aunt. Her uncle is set upon her acquiring a husband post haste. Still emotional wounded from Colin Lathan who gave ever intent on eloping with her, but never showed up. She still struggles with overcoming the damage he did to her heart. Thinking to fix Julianna predicament he set about trying to find her a what she needs most, a husband.

Will the two be able to come together in forgiveness and let their romance blossom?

This is a delightful novella that features more than just a Regency romance, it gives the reader a smooth and believable characters that have much more depth.

The book does a wonderful job highlighting characters with disabilities and color.

I am looking forward to the author writing a full length novel!!


Gabrielle Carr is the author of Regency Romances featuring casts of diverse characters, that are full of heart, hope, and happily ever after. She has always enjoyed indulging in her imagination. At a very young age she had a thirst for reading and the many possibilities it helped bring to life in her mind’s eye. Ms. Carr can normally be found locked away with a good book in her home in Charlotte, NC or traveling the globe to places like India, Bali, Tokyo, or London.

  1. Great review. I just realised that I wasn’t following your blog – I think my wordpress app went wonky a while back and my follow got un-followed. Sorry about that.
