Thank you so very very much! I changed the title and guess it's taking time to reflect. I really appreciate your kind words.

Only thing I was confused about was when I added book to library - title was “the duke’s unwanted bride” but when you click on the details the title is now “the duke and I”. Also can’t seem to download book to my library. All in all, a great read! Thank you!
