Book Review: Only a Duke Will Do (School for Heiresses #2) by Sabrina Jeffries

Blurb from Goodreads:
Louisa North likes her independence very much, despite her royal father’s protests. So when Simon Tremaine, the dashing Duke of Foxmoor, whom she once loved — and had exiled from England — returns bent on marrying her, she’s skeptical.
The fire between them burns as hot as ever, but when Simon’s ulterior motive for marriage is exposed, along with the deeply buried secrets of his past, Louisa vows to make him pay . . . and the price will be his heart.
“Jeffries fans will devour this treat!” — Romantic Times
After the somewhat moderate Never Seduce a Scoundrel (first in the series), I became skeptical and hesitant on continuing the series. I stopped for quite some time and indulge in other HRs. But, eventually, I decided to give the second book a go.
Boy, am I blown away because to be honest, this was one of the most impressive and powerful story I've ever come across, which was very political too. I was surprised that I really enjoyed it because political stories kinda turn me off but Sabrina Jeffries' adept writing made it into such an engrossing read.
Cheers to Simon and Louisa's story. So glad to finally see them have their HEA.
