Synopsis from Goodreads
Sasha Douglas has hit rock bottom. Literally. Left all alone after her brother's murder, she thought things couldn't possibly get worse. Until she finds herself trapped, injured, and frightened with no hope of escape after falling into an abandoned well.

Garrett Rothchild Cantlebury, the 5th Duke of Ravensworth, is shocked to discover a woman trapped in his abandoned well. The place that holds reminders of horrible loss for him. Determined to save the poor girl, he pushes those thoughts aside, refusing to dwell on them. But the rescued damsel in distress ends up making him face a darker truth. One that threatens both their futures.

Can Sasha and Garrett put family tragedy behind them and find love together?

My Review:

This is a sweet and pleasant love story about Sasha, a poor but charming woman, and the wealthy yet kind Duke of Ravensworth. These two meet each other under unusual circumstances; Sasha incautiously falls into a well and injures herself, but fortunately is saved by the Duke, hence the title Rescued by a Duke.
Even though the two meet during a singular incident, they are immediately attracted to each other.

The romance is really cute and heart-warming. I love how the Duke doesn't care that Sasha isn't a member of high society, he knows he loves her and that is all that matters.

The second half of the book is really good. It was intense with a bit of drama.

The story is quite predictable and a bit short for my liking, but apart from that I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to those who are looking for a sweet and clean romance story.
