Desperate Duchesses

Desperate Duchesses by Eloisa James

Classic storyline with a twist:

Girl sees Duke across the room.
Girl falls in love with Duke.
Girl meets Earl.
Earl wants Girl.
Duke proposes to Girl.
Girl accepts.
What is the Earl to do?

Alright, there's a lot more than that in the book... There's a eccentric poet that just happens to be the heroine's father, a beautiful Duchess recently returned to England (and who just happens to be a chess master), her husband who takes his position in the House of Lords very seriously, and a adorable little boy who loves to visit his father's room at night. As usual the author does not disappoint. It's fast paced with a great deal of humor. It was a pleasure to read. I cannot wait until the second book of series is published.

Rate:4.5/5 * Keeper shelf
