    A Duchess a Day by Charis Michaels is an excellent historical romance that is the first book in a new series: Awakened By a Kiss. If the rest of the series is as good as this novel, then I am sure it will be a memorable and popular series. I truly enjoyed this entire story.

    The second sentence in chapter one made me laugh and right then I just knew I was going to love this book. It at times had me laughing and the best part of it was the awesome characters! The banter and fun of it was spot on.

    We meet Declan in jail since he’s been (falsely) accused of abduction. Helena is trying her best to get out of her engagement with a Duke so Declan’s been
