About the Author
Eloisa James is a USA Today and New York Times bestselling author and professor of English literature, who lives with her family in New York, but can sometimes be found in Paris or Italy. She is the mother of two and, in a particularly delicious irony for a romance writer, is married to a genuine Italian knight. Visit her at www.eloisajames.com.

Top Customer Reviews
If you're an Eloisa James fan, you'll want to add My American Duchess to your keeper shelf. If you haven't yet read her books, this standalone is the perfect place to start. It has my highest recommendation. Now, if you'll excuse me, I think I'll pay a visit to Merry and Trent. For the third time.
The Romance Dish
The Duke of Trent thought he would never marry, but once he sets eyes on Merry, he decides she must be his wife. The only problem is she's just become engaged to his brother. Oh, and there's also the tiny matter of the duke not believing in love and only wanting a wife as a companion and bed partner. Even though he feels very passionately about Merry, he's convinced it's only lust.
The culture clash of Merry's adventures in English society provides a lot of humorous moments in the story. Merry's intelligence and outspokenness and her American-ness don't gain her many friends in the ton.
Slight spoiler alert!
What is unusual about this book is that although we fully expect Merry to become the duchess, it happens near the middle of the book, not at the end. The heart of the story is really how Merry and Jack (the duke) get to know each other, explore their feelings, and settle into their roles as a married couple. We don't usually get much insight into what happens after the fairy-tale wedding, so I really enjoyed the ups and downs of the relationship and how they both had to deal with their impetuous choice to marry.
I can't wait for the next read in the series. In my humble opinion, this is one of her best. I love the fact Merry was an American heiress in London. A unique twist on my favorite genre.
