The ministry of marriage did not improve .It had moments when the story became interesting but the idea of the Ministry?Unlikely and did not add to the plot one iota ! Again the review I had read made me expect far better and I had to struggle to finish.Definitely not one for my keeper shelf.

Absolutely Amazing: A Novel to Rememeber 27 Jun. 2012
By Karen Stone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Lady Cecily Westruther needs to find a letter that could destroy her betrothal.

Disguised as a footman, Cecily breaks into Rand's, the Duke of Ashburn, home. After this, the hero went to any length to make her his duchess.

I loved this novel and it definitely deserves 5 stars. Rand was so alpha and possessive while Cecily was feisty and independent. The writing was superb in itself. I have a fetish for alpha heroes who fight for a resistant, cool collected heroine. So if you like a romantic chase, get this book.

With uncontained glee,

Karen "Kitty" Stone

I read the reviews and... 27 Aug. 2012
By KF Cones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read the reviews and I bought the book anyway. After reading the other two books in the series, I decided to go for the last one. I read the reviews. I read the bad ones first. I vacillated between buying the book or letting it go. Do I really want to read a book that loses the plot? That will make me want to smack someone? Hmm.... But I didn't feel like looking for something else, so I bought it. And I am happy I did.

I felt like the heroine was in character throughout the entire book. It was a roller-coaster ride, like real life. I devoured the book in about two hours. I never felt like the book lost the plot. It was enjoyable and one I will probably read again.

I would recommend getting the first two books before reading "A Duchess to Remember", just so you know the characters, but you don't have to. And I would recommend this book to my friends who read this genre.

Why marry for love? 28 July 2013
By Vilia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lady Cecily Westruther is happy to go along with the Ministry of Marriage's plans and marry a duke. She craves independence and as the gentleman in question already has an heir and a mistress, she won't have to spend any time with him. Now this is where things get a little silly but also a bit more entertaining. She wrote a damning letter about her fiancé when she ten and suddenly feels the need to retrieve it before her potential marriage can be destroyed. She dresses up as a footman and breaks into the house where she thinks the letter may be kept, only to encounter the owner Rand, Duke of Ashburn. Sparks fly between the two but Cecily refuses to break her engagement.

Cecily is independent and can be quite charming when she wishes. Unfortunately she is also manipulative, conniving and a cheater. She doesn't want to marry Norland because of his dashing good looks or his engaging personality (neither of which he has) but because she thinks she will be able to manage him fairly easily. She clings to this idea despite being presented with a much more attractive proposal. I still have no idea why she was so desperate to be independent from her husband and how she thought that would differ from her present life. She used Rand in many ways as she was willing to accept his kisses and more, only to soundly reject him once he got his hopes up.

Rand is like the diet coke of rogues as he looks the part but the experience doesn't quite match the expectation. Cecily's feigned disinterest in him is what initially captures his attention. A few well-placed words in the right ear and a smooth seduction ought to win him the girl but when it doesn't, he resorts to some heavy handed bullying tactics. Rogue, right? Well, not really as he caves fairly quickly. At least he is upfront about his feelings and the scene where he shared the story behind his parents' china was really touching.The plot travels a well-worn path and this wouldn't have been a problem if I could have related to the characters more. We have a couple of sub-plots that sort of fizzle out - the first because it was really easy to spot and the second because it wasn't capitalised on fully.

I've read four of Brooke's novels now and while some of them are enjoyable, quite a few just missed the mark for me. This was one of the latter. I liked the idea behind it and some of the dialogue is fantastic. I just wish the plot had a bit more meat behind it and the character motivation had been slightly more plausible.

A Marvelous Addition to the Ministry of Marriage 27 Jun. 2012
By romancelover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Oh, what a treat A DUCHESS TO REMEMBER is! Champagne reading for the historical romance aficionado. I loved all three books in this series and this latest instalment, Cecily's story, kept me glued to the pages right to the end. Through the first two books, she's been a sparkling, clever, idiosyncratic sidekick and now it's wonderful to have her centerstage. Just as sparkling, clever and idiosyncratic as ever. Her hero, Rand, Duke of Ashbourn, is the perfect foil for her, compelling, strong, perceptive. The witty, spiky exchanges between these two are fantastic. Neither gives an inch in this passionate battle to a happy ending. Highly recommended!

A wonderful series 27 Jun. 2012
By Katy A - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've loved this series from the first book--the bit of intrigue that runs through the Ministry Of Marriage and its clandestine workings. This one doesn't disappoint. Christina has a light touch in just the right places, and writes deeply emotional moments when the characters finally face their own truths. There are just a few series that make me wish the author would hurry up and write faster. This is one of them.
