The heroine is a gentleman's daughter who has been in charge of running her brother's estate since she was in her teens, but she flees to London to get the release of her dowry after discovering one of her potential suitors was in subterfuge with her aunt to attain her fortune. Disguised as a man in her brother's clothing, she is mistaken for a pre-teen boy by everyone she meets, including the hero, on her journey to town. Finally there, she discovers her brother has moved from his residence and she is at a lost as to what to do. The hero offers her housing, still thinking she was a boy, but it's not too long after that he discovers her true self.
This is where the story turns farfetched. Upon learning he's been harboring a girl, the hero turns to his parents for help mitigating any gossip. The hero's parents too readily embrace the heroine, with all parties acknowledging the heroine's aristocratic lineage and proclaiming she would be a perfect mate to the hero. The hero's mother even tells the heroine that her grandparents had always wanted her and her brother to join their mother's family, but had been barred by their paternal, iron-fisted aunt.Read more ›
I read the prequel short story The Duchess of Love when it was first released and enjoyed it. I enjoyed the storyline, the voice, and the characters. I thought I'd enjoy this one, but am left with mixed feelings.
Overall, it was an enjoyable read. You know going into this that Frances and Jack find love, but not sure how. It was interesting to watch these two get to know each other and become friends. I never really saw the romance, but I did enjoy their interactions.
Some people are immediately put off by Frances. She is a shrew and a harpy, but I get her. Ms.Read more ›
I really kept hoping the book would improve but sadly only the last few pages held a hint of romance. Don't expect wild declarations of love either, I must say I have my doubts about the main characters' hea, and that's because the author put them there. I don't know what the author was thinking with this book as she made the h very unlikable for almost all of the book. It was bad enough that the h cut off her hair so she could look like a boy because maybe that would have redeemed her a little but even in physically describing her the author wasn't kind at all. The h is thin and tall with no curves, she is also a shrew and hates all men because of the way her father and brother have treated her for her whole life. The H is a sympathetic character and likable and I truly don't understand how he fell in love with the h. Again the author is to blame for this because she describes his thinking about the h and it is in no way romantic. He is very aware of all of the h's faults. When they finally talk about loving each other it is in the most tentative of ways.
The side story of the murders is stupid and distracting, again I'm not sure why the author chose to include this in the book.
I remember being disappointed in Bedding Lord Ned (Duchess of Love) but I truly cannot recommend this book at all. I am intrigued about Ash's story but I will not be getting that book until there are some reviews out and I can be sure it's worth buying.
