Ally Giordano was all set to leave New York City for an exciting opportunity and new life adventure in San Francisco. Unfortunately, her grandmother throws a spinnaker in the works when she starts believing it is 1812 and that Ally is about to marry a duke. What is a girl to do when the woman who raised you seems to be leaving you in bits and pieces? Granny Donny may be getting somewhat dotty but she is determined to see her granddaughter settled and happy, and she has chosen the perfect man for her: Sam Carson, Duke Whatthehell.

Sam Carson has no idea what he has gotten himself into when hops into Granny Donny’s carriage to escape a woman determined to have a “relationship” with him. But he does not expect Ally Giordano, a woman who is rather uptight and seems afraid of possibilities. But he cannot help being intrigued by her also. She is taking her grandmother on a carriage ride all the way to Long Island. The kindness and love she has for her grandmother shines through even when she is at her stiffest. And then, they kiss and the possibilities seem endless. But will Ally embrace the possibilities or be scared off by the feelings she has for Sam, a man who is definitely a modern day rogue.

HOW TO TAME A MODERN ROGUE is pure fun! Ally’s stiff demeanor matched with Sam’s smooth smiles and hot looks is a perfect chemistry combination. Their adventure together is rife with amusement and seriousness. After all, Granny Donny is not at her best, but yet, she is living out a dream by going on this trip. Ally is happy to be providing this moment of thrills for her beloved Granny, even if she is a bit irritated by Sam’s presence. However, with Sam around, Ally starts to loosen up and embrace both her past and her present. Diana Holquist takes readers on a modern ducal adventure. Intertwined with Sam and Ally’s story is the story of, well, a romance novel about a Duke and it is just great fun how well these two stories work together. It is so wonderful that there are authors who are taking chances on contemporary romance stories, and Diana Holquist is definitely one of those authors. HOW TO TAME A MODERN ROGUE embraces its romantic history and gives readers a truly special love story.
