    • THIS IS HISTORICAL ROMANCE AT ITS BEST!WHAT A DUKE DARES is the third book in the marvellous ‘Sons of Sin’ series and, once again, Anna Campbell delivers an emotive, romantic and passionate love story.How I imagine Cam…When Camden (Cam) Rothermere, heir to a dukedom, proposes to his childhood friend, Penelope Thorne, he can’t believe his ears when she turns him down. Even his declaration that he esteems and admires her and enjoys her company does nothing to persuade her to change her min [...]


    • So happy to receive an ARC of this. I was recommended Anna Campbell by Lady Danielle years ago after she realized that I love the unlovable hero. I'm embarrassed to say that this will be my first, but I have three others sitting on my reader or here at home waiting on me. Fingers crossed!!MY REVIEW:It's always wonderful to find an author that can take a romance cliche and make it seem as if it's the first time you've read that story. Anna Campell can do that, and this book was immensely enjoyabl [...]



    • Quick summaryCameron (Cam) Rothermere, the Duke of Sedgemoor, proposed to childhood friend Penelope (Pen) Thorne when she was 19-years old. She turned him down flat and promptly fled to the continent after the pressure from her parents got unbearable. She wants a match made for love and he doesn't believe in it. Nine years later, when her brother, on his deathbed, asks Cam to bring her home, he has no choice but to do so.A bit of backgroundCam desperately wants to marry a woman with an impeccabl [...]


    • Story Rating ~ 3 StarsHero Rating ~ 3.5 StarsHeroine Rating ~ 3.5 StarsRomance Rating ~ 3.5 StarsHeat Level ~ 3.5 StarsEnding ~ 4 StarsOverall Rating ~ 3.5 StarsWhat a Duck Dares was not my favorite read by Anna Campbell, it was just an okay read for me.Penelope Thorne has been in love with Camden Rothermere since she was a young girl. Cam was her brother’s best friend and he was always there to help her when she got herself into one scrape or another.The story starts off with Cam asking Pen t [...]


    • I find it unbelievable that a woman who has spent nearly a decade by herself to still be a virgin, what's more is that I find it insulting that the hero values such a thing when he can't say the same for himself. To say that I am disappointed in this author would be an understatement. When I read her books about courtesans, I thought: 'Finally, an author who finds more value in something other than virginity. An author who writes outside of the bounds of now common and vastly unrealistic histori [...]


    • I've given this an A for narration and B for content at AudioGals. My rating for the print edition was slightly lower, but the terrific narration brings the audiobook version up to 4.5 stars.Camden Rothermere, future Duke of Sedgemoor is young, handsome, rich – and completely stunned when Penelope Thorne turns down his proposal of marriage. He and Pen have known each other almost all their lives, and while the Sedgemoor title has been tarnished in recent years by the very public way in which h [...]


    • The first 60 % of this book was red-hot sizzling. I love when there is a bit of a shared past between the main characters. Camden Rothermere aka the Duke of Sedgemoor had a rough childhood, witnessing this parents' debacle of a marriage and how their scandalous carrying-ons made the Sedgemoor name a laughing stock. Since inheriting the dukedom, he has worked hard to regain the respect of his peers and is on the verge of betrothing himself to a respectable young lady to further his aims. This pro [...]


    • I've given this a B- at AAR, so 3.5 starsThis, the third book in Ms Campbell’s Sons of Sin series, is one I’ve been looking forward to. I enjoyed meeting the very proper and austere Duke of Sedgemoor in the other books, and had high hopes for his story.The last thing Camden Rothermere needs, in the opinion of his childhood friend, Penelope Thorne – is to ally himself with a family whose name is a byword for scandal. And she tells Cam so in no uncertain terms when she turns down his proposa [...]


    • My first by this author, and I will wait to tackle any more of her books. I did not like the secondary love story at all. I really liked both the hero and heroine but because of the secondary love story, I didn't get to know them as well as I'd have liked. By the end, I skimmed the epilogue. Also the major conflict at the end seemed forced in how the hero responded and wrapped up just as quickly, seemingly pointless. Not at all what I expected.


    • 1/5; Can't even be saved by a good narrator. Steve West read this audiobook and was pretty well the only reason I listened to the end. The characters were poorly developed. There was really no story whatsoever. Penelope is afraid to tell Cam she loves him because he says he doesn't want love. She has loved him since forever but noooooo, she can't say it. This goes round and round for the whole book. This is the second book I've tried by this author and she definitely is not for me.


    • This book was better thank the previous one in the series, thus the 3 and 1/2 starsIt did have its share of sensual, but still missing Ms. Campbell's mystery and darkness. Maybe this series is a completly different type of book, but I was still expecting it!I liked the overall story, but too much time was to Cam's denial. I didn't like it. Cam was so much in dinial that it was over the top.Not that Pen was better I was constantly asking myself why she didn't want to fight for him. Why she just d [...]


    • I was kinda disappointed in this novel by Anna Campbell vs. some of her older novels. Just didn't feel the chemistry between her two main characters as much, and to be honest.I grew bored with their constant back and forth. I also had a problem with the additional subplot of Harry/Sophie story line. Just when I was finally relating to Pen and Cam, the POV switched to the second story. That being said, I do like Anna Campbell and I will continue reading the next books in the series.


    • Anna Campbell is one of those authors, where simply seeing her name on the cover is enough incentive for me to buy the book! So, I cannot tell you how excited I was to receive an ARC copy of her upcoming release, WHAT A DUKE DARES, the third book in the luscious “Sons of Sin” series. Huge thanks to Anna and Grand Central for a long night of excellent reading!To begin with…who doesn’t love stories where the hero and heroine are childhood friends, but things go awry when for at least one o [...]


    • Anna Campbell is an amazing storyteller. Her books are pure Historical Romance at it's best. A beautiful love story, lovely sensual scenes and great plots with fascinating characters. Her stories draw you in from the first page to the last, and the endings are very satisfying. This is the third book in the series, and it is as good as the first two. Penelope and Camden have an intense and complicated relationship that keeps you intruigued throughout the story. Anna's prose is sweet, romantic and [...]


    • I am kind of glad that I didn't mark the book as DNF. The first 150 pages were not idyllic. I was bored and tired of the constant hot and cold showers between the two main characters. There waw a lot of tension and passion, but after seeing them get close both emotionally and playsicaly and a minute later arguing or something similar for the 100th time I didn't have the best impression of the book.I couldn't understand Pen. I don't know if it was pride as come said or something else but I though [...]


    • This was a 4.5 star for me. Narrator, Steve West was a superb Cam, in fact all of his characters, but especially the males, are brilliantly portrayed. I've only really just started on Anna Campbell's books and whilst they are excellent, and very well written, I do think she drags out an argument/misunderstanding, for far too long. Apart from that criticism, I loved this novel; a friends to lovers, and would definitely recommend it. Ms. Campbell certainly can dish up the swoon worthy heroes!


    • My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the book for more, visit Punya ReviewsAnna Campbell’s Sons of Sin book 3, What a Duke Dares, was one of my anticipated releases of this year. I’m really hooked in this series, so definitely wanted to read Cam’s book as soon as possible. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed. The storyline was going SO WELL for the first 150 pages that I thought finally a 5 star read! The rest, sadly, didn’t even begin to compare.T [...]


    • What an unexpected and entirely wonderful surprise! If you follow Under the Covers on Facebook you will have noticed that I have been splashing quotes around for this book for the last couple of weeks, I wanted to share some of my favourite bits of this What a Duke Dares and get everyone else excited about it as well!Essentially it takes one arrogant duke who doggedly suppresses his feelings due to a difficult childhood and awful parent and throws him at his old childhood friend and the woman wh [...]


    • One thing for sure is that the book has a lot of scenes involving bodice ripping HEHECamden Rothermere doesn't believe in love and we have his parents to blame. Also, because of his parents' scandals, he's growing up along with it, and so he is determined to restore the good name of Rothermere. To accomplish that, he needs a high-end duchess. However, he chose Penelope, who is way far off as a high-end duchess. Thorne family is a very famous with scandals and they don't give a shaite care what t [...]


    • Charming 4.5 starsI loved Anna Campbell's previous stories in the Sons of Sins series. She never disappoints me! Again, with her latest one WHAT A DUKE DARES, she proves that she is an excellent writer and storyteller. This book is Cam's story, the last one to get married! It's a charming intrigue of Camben Rothermere of Sedgemoor and Penelope Thorne. Pen had always loved, secretly Cam, but never told him, and now he proposes to her! Will she accept? Will she run away? Will they be reunited by d [...]


    • the first half of this was everything i enjoy in a historical. then enter the lame sub-plot about the reforming rake brother, a lot of lamentable and cheesy dialogue, and a curious lack of climax (the literary, not literal, kind).



    • I really thought I'd like this more than I did. Cam, the Duke of Sedgemoor, has know Penelope Thorne for years. When he is 27 and she 19, he asks for her hand. He's always known her and their mothers have pressed for the match. She turns him down. Cam's been trying to live down the scandal brought on the family by his mother and the Thornes are no stranger to scandal. She doesn't want to bring that on to him. In addition she loves him and knows he'll never love her. He leaves in a tiff, she's sa [...]


    • Originally Reviewed For: Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and FantasyIn book three of her amazing Sons of Sin Series, Anna Campbell pulls out all the stops. Emotion reigns throughout this novel and it is impossible to NOT fall in love with these two amazing characters!The Sons of Sin are three men bonded from their days of Eton, all three claimed a bastard, either by deceit, desire or despair. It didn't matter they carried that cross their entire lives. Now they are adults and are slowly finding th [...]


    • So far, I have enjoyed every installment in Anna Campbell’s Sons of Sin series. Each one has maintained a unique personality, but what I really like about Campbell’s writing is her ability to make me feel her characters’ emotions… even when (like in this case) they do their very best to ignore their own feelings.Penelope has been in love with her brother’s best friend Camden since she was a child. He was always there for her. He was attractive and was even going to be a Duke. What woma [...]


    • In this charming twist on a marriage plot, Camden Rothermere, the Duke of Sedgemoor has asked his childhood friend, Penelope Thorne, to marry him. She refuses and runs off to live on the Continent with her aunt. Pen fears her disreputable family’s reputation will sully him, while Cam, a stickler for correctness, is fighting to restore the reputation of his own.Stunned by Pen’s refusal, Cam endeavours to forget her and years pass. But when Pen’s brother’s dying plea sends him to Italy to [...]


    • Check out my other reviews at Little Miss Bookmark!As most everyone knows, I'm a huge fan of historical romance novels. I just love everything about them and this one didn't disappoint. Too much. I thought that the whole idea of this one was interesting because you don't read many historical romance novels where the heroine has gone off to other countries pretty much by herself. It just didn't happen back then, so when I read the blurb for this one, I was intrigued. And it totally paid off. The [...]


    • Anna Campbell is a master storyteller. Her recipe for writing a romance contains just the right amounts of back story, dialogue, action and passion. While this book didn’t have as much intrigue as some of her others, I enjoyed it all the more because the entire focus was on the romantic relationship. What a Duke Dares is the third installment in her Sons of Sin series. I adored the first book with its dark, wounded hero, and was entertained by the second – a totally lighthearted romp. I hope [...]


    • This was my first encounter with Ms Campbell's writing and i am far from disappointed. From page one it was a delicious and enchanting journey.I like that the story moved right along and i also enjoyed the actions of the "background players " (my word) as i see how their story paralleled Pen and Cam. I am glad to have found a new author !
