Format:Kindle Edition
Eloisa James can write, I will give her that. This book had so many really great major characters, not the least of which was our own heroine, India, who had worked long and hard to make a life for herself decorating homes for her wealthy clients. Then, there's our boy, Tobias Dautry (Thorn) who has been a stand-out since he was introduced as the Duke of Villiers' eldest bastard son in "A Duke of her Own." Of course we can't forget Vander who was included for some extra eye-candy, or in this case "imagination candy" and is sure to soon have a book all his own - I for one, look forward to reading his story.

To fill out the storyline, there were some awesome minor characters. I loved little Rose, Thorn's ward, who was orphaned following the death of her "mudlark" father and turned up very unexpectedly in Thorn's arms and heart. I do believe that was when I fell in love with Thorn. Although an illegitimate son, he never forgot his humble beginnings and was loyal to a fault so to speak.

I even liked Laetitia or "Lala" as she was called by her family and friends. We know from the outset that once Thorn chooses Lala as his future wife for reasons other than love, he is doomed to failure so it's not a spoiler to give this away. From Thorn's and India's first encounter, when they meet to discuss her restoring/redesigning the home he has purchased for Lala, we immediately know he is done for - the only thing to be determined is how long it will take him to realize he's a goner. Their notes to one another as she sets about decorating his home are very entertaining.

The fire between Thorn and India was f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s. India's wounds from her past and Thorn's concerns that he was not good enough for a lady caused some misunderstandings between them, but that is, after all what makes the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars So satisfying 20 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was delightful to read Tobias' grown up story! I am such a fan of Ms James, and am hoping that all the Duke of Villiers offspring are getting their own books.

I know that people give out about the Americanisms that slip into the text, but they are so, so few — the humour and the general heart-warmingness of this series more than makes up for it.

Format:Paperback
A higher-end regency read. The characters are well developed for a regency romance, perhaps due the nature of this book being part of a dynasty (had never read prior pieces). They are believable and flawed, and I was pleased to see even the simpleton being fleshed out with more of a plot role than a simple obstacle to be navigated. The adjunct of the child was delightful and well-written, lifting this book out of the ordinary for me. The male character's background of mudlarking was new to me and intriguing to explore, however it came up in flashbacks and dreams too frequently, with all all the overdone effect of a hollwood blockbuster rather than a realistic piece of literature. The female character was well developed if a little too naieve, and I found it jarring that the two were left unchaperoned and essentially cohabiting during an era where a marquess' daughter would certainly not have been allowed to endanger her reputation.

Altogether a little more depth and spice than a standard regency romance, and well written.

The title does not mean quite what you expect. It is a surprise package, well written and crafted as all her Regency books are. I enjoyed it so much that I will be checking out the other Desperate Duchess series. Read and enjoy.

2.0 out of 5 stars it had become both tedious and rather silly 7 Dec. 2014
By Arianna
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This started off quite well but, by about the mid-point, it had become both tedious and rather silly. The writing is poor in places and when the book showed every sign of droning on without signs of improvement, I bailed out - something I very rarely do. This is the first Eloisa James novel that I've tried and will almost certainly be the last.
