Rating: ★★★★✰

The man she has set her eyes on doesn’t know she exists. And this might be her last chance to get him to know her. The duke that loves her is only her best friend. But he’s determined to make her see the truth.

A magic potion.
A wrong duke.
Whole lot of chaos.

I think this story was incredibly sweet and utterly adorable.

Thomas was such a sweetheart. I giggled when he got all pouty over Delilah focusing on another man. His subtle hints and flirtations were the highlight of the story. They way he adores and loves Delilah just the way she is made me swoon. We all need a Thomas in our life.

Delilah is the kind of girl that’ll definitely be my best friend. I love that she’ll do anything for her friends. I am so happy with how her story played out and how she stood up for herself. She really came into her badass self and I’m here for it.

This story was so heart – warming. I fell in love with Delilah and Thomas’s friendship and the way it developed into love was such a pleasure to watch. Friends to lovers is one of my favourite tropes and Valerie gave such a good story.

4 Stars!

A lady with a love potion. A Duke who takes it by mistake. Romance and mischief ensues when plans go awry in No Other Duke But You by Valerie Bowman.


Lady Delilah Montebank has her marital sights set on the Duke of Branville. There’s just one problem: he barely knows she exists. But no matter, she’s got a plan to win him over with her charm, her wit—and perhaps the love potion she has in her possession wouldn’t hurt her cause…

Lord Thomas Hobbs, Duke of Huntley, thinks his best friend Delilah’s quest to become a duchess is ridiculous. He’s always said he’d rather give up all the brandy in London than commit to one person for life. Besides, he knows that Delilah’s love potion can’t possibly win over Branville…since she accidentally gave it to him instead. But perhaps this is the excuse he needs to show her he’s always loved her…

Delilah can’t believe she gave the potion to the wrong duke. Then again, Delilah could do a lot worse than win the hand of her handsome best friend. Could it be that the right duke has been before her eyes all along?
