Blog tour: What a Difference a Duke Makes (School for Dukes #1) by Lenora Bell

Wanted: Governess for duke’s unruly children 
Edgar Rochester, Duke of Banksford, is one of the wealthiest, most powerful men in England, but when it comes to raising twins alone, he knows he needs help. The only problem is the children have terrorized half the governesses in London. Until the clever, bold, and far-too-enticing Miss Mari Perkins arrives.
Lost: One heart to an arrogant duke
Mari knows how to wrap even the most rebellious children around her finger. But their demanding, wickedly handsome father? He won’t be quite so easy to control. And there’s something else she can’t seem to command. Her heart. The foolish thing beats so wildly every time Edgar is near.
Found: A forbidden passion neither can deny
As his employee, Mari is strictly off-limits. But what if she’s the one breaking all his rules? In the game of governess versus duke, how can Edgar maintain his defenses when the only thing he wants to do is let the tempting beauty win . . .?

Review: Rating: 4 out of 5 stars What a Difference a Duke Makes is a solid beginning to a new series by Lenora Bell. It definitely made me wanna read the next book. India is such an interesting character and I am sure her story will be awesome. To be honest, the book didn't offer something original, but the content was good. It has a lot of cliches. I mean, you have the duke who is closed off and the heroine who slowly warms her way into his and his children's hearts. I liked reading how Edgar learned how to show his love for his kids and how they also showed love. I also liked that the kids were present in the novel and not forgotten. They are a big part of the plot. Our heroine is a good person and she grew on me early on in the story, after she stood up to Edgar and won her place as a governess. The thing that made makes me happy when I think about this book is that I actually felt something when I was reading it and the characters grew on me one by one. Edgar is not the best hero I could have, but he evolved a lot and I always give points to a character for that. Overall, I have good feelings about the book. I liked the story, the characters, and the cover. I would recommend it. Tour Wide Giveaway
