My American Duchess by Eloisa James
The arrogant Duke of Trent intends to marry a well-bred Englishwoman. The last woman he would ever consider marrying is the adventuresome Merry Pelford— an American heiress who has infamously jilted two fiancés.
But after one provocative encounter with the captivating Merry, Trent desires her more than any woman he has ever met. He is determined to have her as his wife, no matter what it takes. And Trent is a man who always gets what he wants.
The problem is, Merry is already betrothed, and the former runaway bride has vowed to make it all the way to the altar. As honor clashes with irresistible passion, Trent realizes the stakes are higher than anyone could have imagined. In his battle to save Merry and win her heart, one thing becomes clear:
All is fair in love and war.
This past week, I’ve read quite a bit of historical romances and I’m not even a little bit mad about it. I’m reading some great romances so I guess I want to keep the historical party going. I haven’t started this one yet but I will be reading this one tonight and I can’t wait.
Did I Mention I Love You by Estelle Maskame | 2.75 out of 5
Dukes Prefer Blondes (Dressmakers #4) by Loretta Chase | 4.75 out of 5
Lord Dashwood Missed Out (Spindle Cove #4.5) by Tessa Dare | 3.5 out of 5
Scorched (Frigid #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout | 3 out of 5
The Deal (Off-Campus #1) by Elle Kennedy | 5 out of 5
The Mistake (Off-Campus #2) by Elle Kennedy | 4.5 out of 5
My favorite read of the week is probably my re-read of The Deal by Elle Kennedy because damn that Garrett Graham but of the new reads, hands down my favorite read is Dukes Prefer Blondes by Loretta Chase. That was such a fun book with a steamy romance that had me sighing and laughing all over the damn place. So freaking good!
My least favorite read of the week goes to Did I Mention I Love You by Estelle Maskame. I think I’m starting to get over YA’s and while that makes me sad, there is still plenty of things for me to read so I’m sure I’ll be okay.
Heat Exchange (Boston Fire #1) by Shannon Stacey
Dirty Deeds (Mechanics of Love #3) by Megan Erickson
Sustained (Legal Briefs #2) by Emma Chase
Overruled (Legal Briefs #1) by Emma Chase
Dare to Run (Sons of Steel Row #1) by Jen McLaughlin
The Earl Takes All (Hellions of Havisham #2) by Lorraine Heath
The blurb for The Earl Takes All by Lorraine Heath had me gasping and OMG-ing all over the damn place because WHAT???!!! I can’t wait to dig into that one. Holy shitballs!
There you have it, my week in books. How did your week go?
