Both men and women in her novels are bashful, self-deprecating and at the same time spirited in a very rational way (translation: no TSTL heroes). I really really love that.
The Duchess War starts with a cliche - the duke hides in the library and sees this mousy little woman who finds the same hiding spot he is occupying at the moment to hide from her fiance.
However, the dynamic of conversation between these two, the spark, the game they start playing with each other totally blows your mind straight away.
And it only gets better and better throughout the book. This is a light, heartwarming, very touching, humorous and witty read. I laughed, I sighed with wonder and I cried just a tiny bit.
Now I will have to hold my tongue so as not to give you any spoilers, but if by any chance you love historical romance and haven't read Milan's books yet, you have to try her. She will blow you away. You will finish her book and walk away a better person.
I was a bit concerned when I started reading the book as it appeared to be a bit odd.... no once upon a time fairytale here.....but the author draws you in to the gritty reality of victorian society (not unlike the young kids of today in factories making tee shirts which cost you a pound but cost them much more).
You see here the product of a less than loveless marriage Robert (Duke of Clermont) trying to overcome a less than happy upbringing but turning out to be a spectacular human being none the less with the help of his half brother and cousin and finally finding his chosen partner 'Minnie' with a little scandal of her own to overcome....
If you know Courtney Milan's other work, she has got it down to a fine art...an absolute treat
