Two things here – my auto spell check for some reason always changed Duke to Duck? Seriously Microsoft in what world is Duke not a word.
Taking that out of the configuration I was very much enthralled with BETWEEN THE DUKE AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA (click here for review on Amazon) by Sophia Nash
But today all I am going to do is capture a quote from a secondary character in this book John Goodsmith. He has some philosophical moments and I hope at some point gets his own story.
You can try and change the past and get nowhere or you can try to shape the future. But at all times we must embrace the present moment.

REVIEW from "The Reading Reviewer"
BETWEEN THE DUKE AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA by Sophia Nash
When do we figure out who needs what in a relationship?
Alexander Barclay, ninth Duke of Kress hasn’t even figured out how to be a Duke before he already loses his money. During an evening of too much of everything inappropriate he lost it in a bet and made Prinny look really bad, an awful combination. As punishment Alex has been banished to no man’s land and instructed to make a ruin a castle again and find a bride now. Alex really hated the country, did not want to marry, but most of all despised rescuing damsels in distress. Yet there hung Roxanne by the tips of her fingers and the determination of a woman destined to change everything in Alex’s life.
Roxanne turns from the victim to the avenger in the blink of Alex’s eye. He discovers she was left there to die by her devious husband and within a moment after recover Roxanne has a plan to turn the tables on the cur. Alex really does have his hands full with the rebuilding of the castle, controlling his great aunt, trying to not get married, and in general learn to tolerate the country.
Yet Alex and Roxanne are more devious together than either of them ever thought. Roxanne is culling through the potential brides while Alex rattles the brain of Roxanne’s husband. What is unexpected is the realization Roxanne has that her husband left her and that the man who rescued her might be the knight she has always been looking for. What is a woman to do with a bad marriage holding you back from a bright future.
Sophia Nash has a brilliant gift of weaving a story of two people that have to find a way to resolve the past to capture the future. There are some morality issues with Roxanne moving on when she is still married to another but aside from that – very good read for everyone.
