How can she dare to imagine he loves her . . . when all London calls her The Ugly Duchess?
Theodora Saxby is the last woman anyone expects the gorgeous James Ryburn, heir to the Duchy of Ashbrook, to marry. But after a romantic proposal before the prince himself, even practical Theo finds herself convinced of her soon-to-be duke's passion.
Still, the tabloids give the marriage six months.
Theo would have given it a lifetime . . . until she discovers that James desired not her heart, and certainly not her countenance, but her dowry.
Society was shocked by their wedding . . . and is scandalized by their separation.
Now James faces the battle of his life, convincing Theo that he loves the duckling who blossomed into the swan.
And Theo will quickly find that, for a man with the soul of a pirate, All's Fair in Love—and War.
I loved Theo and how she mostly thought well of herself, even when the world tried to prove that she wasn't good enough.
Didn't like the characters, the boring bits were too long, the resolution and interaction between the adult hero and heroine was too short.
Eloisa James' books are funny, the characters well drawn, and the plots quite good, considering that the stories are light-hearted.
But usually, I am smiling between my tears. She is a master story teller. Quirky characters, full of love and life.Published 7 days ago by Avid Reader
