Loving Lord Ash (Duchess of Love #3) by Sally MacKenzie
Being the son of Venus, the Duchess of Love produces it's own problems. Her sons head for the hill at the slightest hint that Mama is pursuing their interests with only one thing in mind, well two. Matrimony, and a Happy Marriage!
Her eldest son, Kit, Marquis of Ashton, returns to Blackweith Manor to see his wife Jess, whom he hasn't seen for eight years. He needs an heir. They come to a agreement! Not without Ash completely jumping to all the wrong conclusions. There are no women at the manor but there are some very handsome footmen.
What a conundrum! They decide to avoid the pressure of Ash's mother, the Duchess, but run slap bang into her. Ho hum!
There are some truly hilarious parts, such as when Jess looses the soap in the bath and she asks Kit to find it.
I do enjoy the way a line from Venus graces the beginning of each chapter as a prelude to what comes.
A delightful read!
