This Duchess of Mine — All About Romance

But you see, after finding them the most interesting ducehss for 4 books I spent their book more interested in Villiers and his children than Jemma and Elijah… Grade: He is someone who is driven almost too much by honor – whether in politics or in accepting his guilt for his marriage falling apart.

Why tgis sudden change of feelings in both of them? Elijah, Duke of Beaumont, did believe those rumors. Not content with that, she further raised eyebrows upon arriving in London with her private chess matches with husband’s friend.

I appreciate that this book was told over multiple books, because I think it needed that muc 4. Except her own husband!

And they were having this conversation while in bed no less.


This Duchess of Mine

It’s her masterpiece, if I may say. Mature grown ups don’t engage in these destructive games of tit-for-tat. May 16, Publication Date: Lol yes I know Eloisa has rendered me or man woman. EJ answers the former but not the latter.

I thought I did. May 26, Imprint: This isn’t a sugary happily ever after but one deeply earned. Please stop by and join the conversation on my readers’ pages. First,he was unfaithful to her and she accepted it. Too much foot shuffling happens htis here. And boy, does he learn his lesson the hard way. They were flawed, which I liked. What her husband doesn’t know is that most of the rumors surrounding her life are untrue. More than half the tjis is focused on endless talks of chess which I clearly don’t have the head for which started to get redundant and boring and of course When he decides that he’s going to win her affections back, watch out.

She wanted him to look at her with the same hunger that he showed for a new bill in Parliament. Fourth, enough with the chess.

I liked reading about Elijah’s work in the gov’t though, how he was trying to eloia the poor and especially his glassworks for the blind men.

The hero, Rhys, in that, was a selfish clod and the heroine, Helene, was a rigid, iames woman. The Taming of the Duke April has obvious Shakespearean resonances, as do many of my novels.


Years of separation and lack of communication have led to misunderstandings between the couple. But ultimately, the reason I loved this book so much because it was such a complex portrayal of marriage. I think I may have even been looking forward to this one the most. The other day I bought a delicious pink suit to tape a television segment on romance; I’ll never wear that suit to teach in, nor even to give a paper at the Shakespeare Association of America conference.

WHY did he tell Jemma that he loved his mistress when she caught them literally in the act?

This book answered my questions rather well. Go read this book. What her husband doesn’t know is that she was in love with him when she fled, her heart broken by his infidelity.

That said, I don’t blindly love all her books.
