Seriously, this book was incredibly disappointing. From the description and some of the great reviews I was expecting a fun and enjoyable read, what I got was a book that relied on its hero being terrible for 90% of the plot only to have him (unconvincingly) become perfect in the last 15 pages.

The Duke of Hawkesbough doesn't want to get married, he's only doing so to get his inheritance, then he plans to begat an heir and sail back to Naples, never to see his wife or son ever again. So far so silly plan. He meets his future wife Lady Elizabeth "Wyldest" Wylder who as it turn out is his perfect woman and he instantly desires her above all other women and tells her so. He also encourages her to flout every social protocol, duty and manners that come with her new position as Duchess, which she willingly does for the first half of the book because he's such a sexy guy.

However the minute she tries to be more than his bedmate at his beck and call 24 hours a day he comes a petulant toddler, who can't even stomach her talking to the servants without getting in a strop, let alone let her actually talking to members of the ton without trying to deliberately snub them.

Oh and despite the fact that he desires her above everything else, he's still planning on going back to Italy the minute she births an heir and/or he gets bored of her. He lets this slip at a public party and later can't understand why she's so upset, when he's spent the last 2 weeks telling her she's everything he could ever want and never mentioned this plan to her.

Is it just me, or has there been a recent proliferation of unrepentant cheaters as heroes in recent historical romances? I seriously hope it's not a trend. This is the third HR novel I've read this month that has a hero who cheats or attempts to cheat on his marriage. But maybe I've just been really unfortunate in my selections. Usually I always read the reviews, because I don't like certain elements in my romances, including cheating, rape, etc. However, very suprisingly, I didn't come across any warnings about this.

Usually I really don't like to give such negative reviews, especially when they're mostly based on one element. However, I really, really hated that the hero not only tried to cheat on his marriage to the heroine by visiting a brothel, while they were having an active sexual relationship and while he told her he loved her, but also that he did not feel or express any guilt or remorse for it, never told his wife what he did, and immediately after what he did, he had the unimaginable hypocrisy as to actually yell at his wife because she was innocently chatting with her cousin and accuse her of dallying. While never acknowledging or owning up to his own REAL cheating behavior of course.

His reasoning/justification for his cheating was that he "intended to teach Lizzie A Lesson, the way that men were always supposed to, and he had planned to spend at least a week carousing in expensive brothels to prove that he intended to do whatever made him happy, no matter if he was married or not." I'm not kidding, that is a verbatim quote.

*SPOILERS*

So he goes to his first expensive brothel and consorts with the whores, until he finally realizes that he can't physically get aroused.

Lizzie Wylder finds out that her father also arranged a marriage for her prior to his death. She's betrothed to the Duke of Hawkesworth, called Hawke, who must marry her before she turns 19 years of age or he will lose his fortune in accordance with his deceased father's directive. Hawke is doing some very serious foot dragging as he has no interest in the English lifestyle and plans to return to his beloved Naples, Italy once he's married and produced an heir. That is until he is dazzled by the free-spirited Lizzie.

I really liked the first book in this series and loved this one. Lizzie is much more daring than her sister Charlotte, who has transformed into the perfect Duchess, conforming to the traditions of English society. Lizzie, being the middle child, doesn't feel the pressure of the need to conform and finds herself succumbing to Hawke's scandalous behaviors. Though he rudely avoided meeting Lizzie for the first time, Hawke quickly changed his tune when he realized she was the young woman he had encountered at the opera and who mesmerized him. The two of them proceed on a pretty risky path before they finally make it to the altar. Their relationship is passionate and delightful, both of them being really interesting characters.

I wondered for a time where the conflict would rise and it does indeed come from Hawke whose only frame of reference for marriage is his parents' union, which was fairly dismal. Hawke still has the notion that in time, his passion and love for Lizzie will fade and he'll eventually set up a separate household for himself in Naples, complete with a mistress. Lizzie's realization of her husband's views is heartbreaking and Hawke's transformation was painful. This aspect of the story was gripping and I felt the anguish of both.
