Don’t want to read the whole review?  Click to jump to the Skinny Review. It looks like a lot of historical romances are doing retellings of classic movies (not that I am complaining). With YA doing the classic/fairy tale retellings, I think this is perfect! As you can tell, While the Duke was Sleeping is a retelling of While You Were Sleeping with […]
