Bran Crowther was given the nickname "Duke of Defiance" by a group of women. As a teen, he left England and didn't go back until he had the title of Earl thrown on him. He returned with his daughter Evie. He soon meets Joanna "Jo" Shaw, a priest's widow and sister to a duchess. She accepts a job offer as Evie's governess only after a marriage proposal was turned down.
I alway love when shows, cartoons or books have a father/daughter relationship as a major aspect to the story. The Duke of Defiance was no exception.
Aside from that, I really found the interaction between the dukes very entertaining.
I voluntary read and reviewed an advanced reader's copy of this book.
