I highly recommend this sweet love story, set in England in 1818, to teenage girls who enjoy historical romances. It's a really romantic and charming story, and I truly enjoyed the characters.
So not the case with Anna and the Duke. Anna and Ewan actually have more dimensions to themselves than just their sex drive. Although they're not setting out to fall for one another, they follow their hearts to be together. There is also another underlying plot here, which is what makes the book succeed. It's really a good, suspensful novel that includes romance, it doesn't just center on that. I love that the characters have different facets to them that make them real, like abandonedment issues, being forced to do things by your parents. This book is definately a 110% book!
Please don't let the few bad reviews throw you. I'd recommend this book to any romance fan.
The third book of the series, "Anna and the Duke" is an Avon True Romance for teenage girls. And even though this book is first and foremost a romance novel, there is plenty of intrigue, humor, and excitement to entertain a variety of teens.
The only Avon True Romance for teens that I read is so far "Victoria and the Rogue". In that book the story had been told in the view of the main character Victoria, who was a young, naive, and a bit haughty young woman. In "Anna and the Duke", I was given a totally different type of young lady. Anna Welsley was in a way more ladylike and had a shy temperament. But in no way she can be thought of as a boring, 'perfect' girl which plagues many romance novels of late. Anna has her faults but is strong and brave enough to fight for her loved one. Her loved one is Ewan MacLaughlin who is perfectly charming! I loved his background of being Scottish which is pretty cool.
If all the other Avon True Romance novels for teens are anything like "Anna and the Duke", I'm definitely picking up another in the series!
