There is one person standing in their way, Belle is engaged to Sir Errol. Can Belle follow her heart or will she be forced to marry Errol?At first the internal dialogue of the main characters irritated me. I came to rea [...]

    2. Our hero, Wesley, is something of a young scamp; he cares for his mother’s well-being and his friends, and that’s really about it. Then news comes from England that Wesley’s uncle—the Ninth Duke of Mansbury—died, leaving his father a fortune. Unfortunately, Wesley’s father too has passed leaving Wesley the only remaining candidate to become the next Duke of Mansbury. While he’d rather stay in New York with the friends and life he loves, when Miss Annabelle Oakhurst and her father s [...]

    3. This story took place in America, then in England in 1890. I found the first half better than the second. Wesley (hero) & his mother (born in England) heldmostly menial jobs in Brooklyn after the death of Wesley's father. Wes presented as nice but no push-over. Heroine Belle (daughter of a solicitor) first methero (in US) after he'd engaged in fisticuffs. The 4took an ocean voyage to England. Wes believed all people equal, so his adjustment to being a new Duke, came with challenges. Sir Erro [...]

    4. Mr. Oakhurst, the solicitor to the 10th Duke of Mansbury, Septimus Parker, has taken his daughter with him across the Atlantic to let the 11th Duke of Mansbury, Frederic Parker, know that his brother has died and he has inherited everything. When he and his daughter, Annabelle, find the new duke's residence, they learn that he died several years ago and that the new duke is, in fact, his 20-year-old son Wesley. They are further surprised to find that 20-year-old Wesley has been raised in poverty [...]

    5. Duke of a Gilded Age was a very entertaining read. It starts with a young man from Brooklyn, Wesley Parker, who learns that he has become the sole heir to a vast estate in England, the homeland of his parents. The plot moves through his discovery through his acclimation to his new role in English gentry and nobility society. The characters were all rather well developed, particularly Wesley. The action, while sometimes coming a little too quickly, was fun and exciting. It very quickly grabbed my [...]

    6. Beautifully written and impeccably researched, "Duke of a Gilded Age" by S.G. Rogers is an exciting story about a young American who finds out he is an unexpected heir to a title and estate in England, left to him by his estranged uncle.Belle Oakhurst and her father, solicitor to the Duke of Mansbury, travel to New York City to give the news of his inheritance to the deceased duke's brother, Frederic. Unbeknownst to Mr. Oakhurst, Frederic has passed away, and his son Wesley will now shoulder res [...]

    7. 3.5 starsI really enjoyed this book. The characters are fun, the plot intriguing and the pace fast. There are enough misunderstandings to satisfy those who love wading through romantic angst. What I didn't like are the author's insistence on using internal voice to state the obvious - that had my eyes rolling a few times – and the long, unnecessary descriptive passages. I can very easily imagine what the furnishings of a lavish ship will look like, or the style and fabric of a dress. I found m [...]

    8. This adorable little romance about a grown-up Little Lord Fauntleroy falling in love with his priggish mentor proved to be more entertaining and engrossing than I expected it would be. The hero had more depth and character, the heroine was less perfect, the love story had more complexity, and there was also more more action and danger than I expected. A most pleasant surprise.

    9. Rogers took a huge risk with this "poor street-wise American discovers he inherited an English dukedom and must find his way" story line. But she pulled it off beautifully! Set in the late 1800's, she captured the feeling of the era, crafted characters of originality and tossed out plot surprises without seemingly contrived effort. This is a fun, well written and well paced feel good story.

    10. Not Your Grandparents’ Lord FauntleroyLike the 19th Century book, Little Lord Fauntleroy, SG Rogers’ book, Duke of a Gilded Age tells the story of an American boy of British heritage who suddenly finds himself with a British title -- and the fortune that goes with it. There, though, the stories diverge.Wesley Parker is a twenty-year-old when he inherits his uncle’s title. Rather than being taught by an irascible uncle, he is tutored by a surprisingly accomplished butler and a lovely Englis [...]

    12. I believe this is author S.G. Rogers' best book so far. Her deft handling of the Victorian era details shines in every scene. The characters - poor boy Wesley who inherits a fortune, lawyer's daughter Belle who helps polish the diamond in the rough - are well-matched and Belle's status as affianced to another lends the right touch of conflict to their growing romance, especially in the tense midpoint scene of a boat rescue, which was incredible. I couldn't put the book down! Minor characters als [...]

    13. This book is a fun, clean romance full of action and plot twists. It is so much more than your typical historical romance. The wide variety of well-written characters (both heroes & villains) made this book very interesting and kept me turning the pages. The way the author described the various settings made it very easy for me to picture. One of the characters turned out to be more than I expected and I hope to be able to read more about his story. (I don't want to mention names, but it's o [...]

    19. The tenth Duke of Mansbury has no idea he’s about to become aristocracy until his uncle’s attorney informs him of his inheritance. His uncle has died, and the title passed to him since his father is no longer living. Wesley and his mother are in dire circumstances, living in a tiny apartment in an American city. His changed circumstances come as a shock. While his mother is deliriously happy about returning to England, Wesley is more interested in the attorney’s lovely daughter. He seeks A [...]

    20. Sometimes you just want a simple, short, and sweet story and that's what this was for me. The characters were simple, lovable, and had sometimes cute, sometimes clever dialogue that made much of the journey quite charming. I liked the first 70% of the book the most and found the last 30% a bit abrupt, but maybe I was just missing some of the boat drama and characters. The characters were a tad cookie cutter and I would have liked a heroine with a little more backbone, but in the end, it was nice [...]

    21. 1.5 stars. I adore clean reads so I really wanted to like this more. This story was either too simple, coincidental or just plain silly. The lack of character development was disappointing as was the H's apparent lack of conviction when it came to the h's character. Honestly, he would change his opinion of her within seconds of overhearing something or observing a scene that made him upset. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who's looking for an engaging or compelling read. Sorry. :(

    23. Good storyInteresting plot. The story line is interesting, but it just seems like it takes so long for it to move along. One of the things I like about this author is that she completes all the minor character stories she begins
