Hiatt's writing style is very simple and straightforward. The story is formulaic. It reads more like a teen novel, and would be appropriate for that age group. It is an easy, quick read, with a likeable H and h, but there is little emotional depth. The couple seems to be mildly in like. The emotion of love is given lip service, but no real evidence is presented. And romance? None. The couple are "proper" in all interactions, and passion is nonexistent. I do not mind a lack of physical passion, but a lack of emotional passion seems too sterile, and does not ring true.
This book is not a bad read. It is not a great one either. While reading this book, I could not help but think that a better writer could have made this plot line zing. This writer, however, only let it rise to mediocrity.
FYI: no sex, no bad language
A Duke loses a bet to a good friend and a wager must be paid. He must introduce a young lady to the ton using his influence and title so that she will be accepted socially.
Who would question a Duke's choice of companion? Even though her sister has been shunned by elite society with good reason and Gabriella's own honor has been called into serious question?
The Duke cannot allow his own reputation to be damaged because he had made a harmless bet and lost. He assumed he knew the worst of the chit which was that she had no dowry and this was her first visit to London. If people assumed she was of highborn blood.......not his problem.
When he us told that not only is she another man's mistress but his identity is despicable, he cannot believe how clever her deceit has been and now it is his problem.
Only one thing to do. He must divest himself of her. He's furious with himself for not seeing the truth!!
