    Sometimes a connection is just plain undeniable and I love watching the twists and turns life takes for these characters to realize that. Amelia works in a tea shop, but the conversation is lively and the bond is deep when Gerald, a duke, steps into her shop. I enjoyed this sweet, gentle romance, with its pleasant characters and tender charm. I loved how the story had a few layers of second chances embedded within it, and not just with the romance. Oh, how I love a cute Regency romance! This story Sometimes a connection is just plain undeniable and I love watching the twists and turns life takes for these characters to realize that.

Oh, how I love a cute Regency romance! This story starts out with a sad tone, but the cute fluff quickly emerges and I'm looking forward to reading this entire series. Times were definitely different back then and the author does a great job of making that apparent. There isn't a luxury of taking one's time to figure things out, or even to mourn, as is shown with the sudden decisions of the main characters. Although I wished for a slightly longer story, character emotions are fairly well-rounded and described, and this story is quite enjoyable. Content: mild romance *I received a complimentary copy.

Then his solution to this quandry…. I concluded he was not bright enough to have a HEA. The only saving grace was the ''hero's" best friend/ cousin Morley, a real man. Not feather-headed, not impulsive.

    The story begins with a celebratory event that quickly turns into tragedy. Gerald is forced to live without the woman that he loves and has no inclination to see his newborn son. He is bitter and feels that he has no hope. Trying to run away from his problems he finds himself at the door of a tea shop and meets a woman who he feels he can talk to.

This book is really sweet. I enjoyed the relationship between Gerald, Amelia, and Gerald's best friend. Gerald is surrounded by people who genuinely care about him and will do whatever it takes to help him find happiness. This book is a second chance for him and a time that he can come to love his son. I liked the relationships that were built in this story. Source: I received a complimentary copy. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

    Such a sweet story! I loved Amelia's tea shop setting and how she had genuine conversations with a man deep in grief, something she has experience dealing with. Amelia is the gem in this story, caught between two worlds and not daring to dream. The duke is something else- I was getting whiplash from his mood swings and irrational choices.

    Lovely Second Chance! I absolutely loved this second chance story. The broken hearted Duke happens into a tea room, not yet locked up for the night and meets a wonderful, compassionate, young woman working there. She speaks her mind offers him comforting words and gives him very good advice. I won't give spoilers but it was a delight to read this story. I look forward to reading the next book. *Borrowed from Kindle Unlimited* Lovely Second Chance! I absolutely loved this second chance story.

    This sweet novella starts off so sadly I thought the author would have to jump ahead a decade at least to move past the grief and sorrow. It was a pleasant surprised to have the duke meet someone who just allowed him to grieve and begin to heal. I loved the idea of Amelia being able to see into his soul by painting his eyes. There is great romance in that. The story is short so everything moves quickly out of necessity. It was maybe a bit too convenient to have the secret from Amelia's past come This sweet novella starts off so sadly I thought the author would have to jump ahead a decade at least to move past the grief and sorrow.

    Poignant and heart-wrenching to begin with, this novella looks at how second chances can come & love can grow, even when we don’t think we want them. Being a novella this is a fast paced & very quick read. The character development is not as detailed as the author normally delivers, but it is a novella so this is to be expected. With an epilogue introducing the next book in the series, this is a nice introduction to the Lord’s for the Sisters of Sussex series.

    I didn't get pulled in as much as I usually do with one of this author's books, but that being said I still loved Gerald and Amelia. With it being a novella the story was a little rushed and characters not as developed as normal, but it was a good quick read. The relationship between Amelia and Gerald was sweet. There was some crazy drama and I wish there had been more about how it was resolved, but again that is one of the problems with novellas.

    A regency clean and sweet read. I finished it in a day. It was just what I needed today. It starts out quite sad. I could see the direction it was going after reading a few paragraphs. And it is quite tragic. But it is a beautiful telling of new beginnings and allowing love into a broken heart. I read a critique earlier saying the romance was too quick. I can see their point but I think there are times when things just fall into place. Gerald didn’t have to remarry prior to his mourning period b A regency clean and sweet read.

But it is a beautiful telling of new beginnings and allowing love into a broken heart. I read a critique earlier saying the romance was too quick. I can see their point but I think there are times when things just fall into place. Gerald didn’t have to remarry prior to his mourning period being over but it might have been in his sons best interest and his estate for him to move on. And the heart doesn’t have to have a set mourning period even if it is custom. Regardless, I enjoyed the characters and I am excited to know that Lord Morley is getting his own story.

    When you can combine a second chance at love with a Regency novel, there is nothing better. I really liked the way this story developed in an unconventional manner. Usually, I expect the book to be all about the balls and Hyde park and all that is good and appropriate. There was a little of that, but even it was unconventional. It was evident immediately that our Duke loved his first wife, but what wasn't evident was if he would be able to find happiness again. He came with a meddling mother tha When you can combine a second chance at love with a Regency novel, there is nothing better. I really liked the way this story developed in an unconventional manner.

It was evident immediately that our Duke loved his first wife, but what wasn't evident was if he would be able to find happiness again. He came with a meddling mother that would have him marry the first "appropriate" person who came a long, barely giving him time to grieve. Then there is our heroine who does just what she should do for him, listen. She didn't set out to fall in love with him, but sometimes that cannot be helped. Overall, I loved this story, I love Jen Geigle Johnson's strong writing and outside the box approach to her characters and stories. I would recommend this to those who love a good Regency Story.

    I enjoy reading a good Regency romance. It makes me happy when I like the characters, and a good escape is the best. And it’s even better if I get all of that in a book that is quick and easy to read. The Duke’s Second Chance is one of those. The book starts with a super sad scene. Gerald’s dear wife doesn’t survive the first chapter and he’s devastated. It made me wonder just where the book was going to go from that sad place. Luckily, Gerald met Amelia.

It felt like the editing wasn't finished and was not the usual level that this author writes at. There was missing punctuation, the duke's wife's name was misspelled, etc. It was a little hard to follow at times in terms of timing, (a month passed and I thought it was the same day still).

    I was impressed with the opening of this first novella of the Lords for the Sisters of Sussex. Gerald, Duke of Granbury suffers an unexpected loss of his beloved Camilla during childbirth. He is devastated. Although his son survives and is cared for, he goes several months before he even visits his son in the nursery. This opening is well written and heartrending. I will not duplicate the outstanding work of other reviewers who do a good job of describing the storyline.

Though generally well-written, there are some editorial errors that should have been corrected prior to publication, one of which is an indecipherable sentence that I re-read several times and could not get a clue about what the author was trying to say. Four-Stars.

    Dreamy! This delightful read will have you curling your toes at the thought of a Duke falling in love with a tea shop owner’s daughter. (Sigh!) Ms Johnson does an excellent job developing this tale into one that will definitely put a smile on your face and possibly provide you with wonderful dreams besides. I can easily recommend this book to anyone who loves a good historical romance.

    When a book makes your cry in the 1st chapter, you know it’s going to be a good story. It had some editing mistakes, characters by different names, misspellings, etc... but honestly it didn’t bother me. The story held my complete attention and I couldn’t put it down and I was sad that it ended so quickly. Looking forward to the next book in the series

    Lovely story of a second love after loss and grief I haven't read a single one of Jen Geigle Johnson's books that I didn't like. All have been enjoyable. I agree with other reviewers that this story would have been better as a full length/longer novel, but I still really enjoyed it!

Loosing someone can be so painful, even more so if it is the love of your life, and she leaves a newborn; how on earth do you recover from this?

    This is a short and sweet read that starts out with a grab at your heart but kinda loses it’s punch by the end. The Duke of Granbury loses his wife in childbirth and is suffering so much grief that he doesn’t even wish to see his son but realizes he needs a mother for him. So the search begins for someone who can fill the role of wife and mother without an emotional connection. The book is enjoyable in the long run and a good start for the series.

    Now that I’ve read this twice, I’m quite in love with it. I’ve upped my stars from 4 to 4 1/2, so with Goodreads that means 5 stars. Oh well. So be it. It’s just such a sweet story. Gerald was a dear, and Amelia was brave and good. Yes, they were great for each other. And now I’m excited to read Lord Morlet’s story! It’s gonna be good, I can tell. 5 stars.

The characters were well-written, including the duke with a pleasing personality even though he knew his privileges. I enjoyed the plot, including the unexpected twist. A fun read.
