Tuesday Lunch Break – Along Came a Duke

I have a confession to make: I am a lunch time reader. I think I like lunch more for the chance to read than the eating part. LOL!

So for the next ten weeks, I’ll be featuring an excerpt from one of my books–the perfect sort IMG_0510of lunch break sampling. And when you are done reading (and having lunch!)


, come back here to leave a comment and you’ll be entered in a drawing for a new lunch bag stuffed with books and goodies.

Make sure to come back every Tuesday for a new excerpt and a new contest.

This week’s featured excerpt: Along Came a Duke. If you haven’t read Tabby and Preston’s story


, here’s your chance to kick back, have some lunch and read the Excerpt. Then make sure to come back and comment so you are entered for the contest.

To enter, simply comment below–about anything: what you are currently reading, what you had for lunch, which book you’d like to see featured on Tuesday Lunch Break. That’s it, you’re entered.

Winner will be announced next Tuesday (May 24th) right here on the Blog.

    I read Along Came a Duke in December ’15 and loved it. But, of course, I love everything you write, so what else is new? I’m reading a new-to-me author right now by the name of Megan Frampton. The first book I read was titled The Duke’s Guide to Correct Behavior and it is part of her Dukes Behaving Badly series that published mostly in 2015. I can’t say that I’m 100% in love with the book or the series or the author’s style of writing. I’m willing to give her several chances before I throw in the towel on this one.

    I, too, am a lunchtime reader and always look forward to that time to “get away” from everything.

    As I’m retired, I would like to say that I can choose to read all day if I wish, however, that is not the case. Unfortunately, housework, shopping, and other chores always need to be done. Therefore, it is just after lunch before I can finally grab an hour or two to read. That’s the best part of the day.

    Just put this book in my TBR list. I’m more of an evening reader, after everyone’s in bed and the whole house is quiet. Of course I get into trouble when I put the book down at 3am and have to get up to get kids ready for school at 6am, but that’s what naps are for!!

    I haven’t read this book yet but I would love to. I’m about to finish reading The Taming Of The Bachelor by Jane Porter and I’m really enjoying it.

    I answered by hitting reply. Sorry. Just wrote about when I was young, MANY years ago & I was in grade school. I came home for lunch & got reading & lost all track of time. Sometimes I didn’t go back to school because I was too late.

    I’m about to take my lunch hour. I have a sandwich everyday for lunch. Roast beef, turkey, lettuce or spinach, and tomato on 7 grain bread with ranch dressing instead of mayo. Very delicious.

    Oh, I’m not reading anything yet – the semester just finished (which did not allow for any outside reading since winter break), but I’ve been catching up on other things first, like cleaning, organizing, stuff like that. But I’m getting there! πŸ˜€
