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.
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.
