Jane Fairfield is awful. Her clothes are ostentatious and gaudy, her voice is too loud and her manners - well, surely she doesn't say such things on purpose? Anyone else would be shunned from polite society for such behaviour, but Jane is an heiress and she has one hundred thousand reasons to be allowed to stay.

She also has one hundred thousand reasons to behave in such an appalling way - because Jane doesn't want to get married, but her uncle plans to marry her off to the first man who offers, or throw her from his house. So Jane works extra hard to keep all the fortune hunters at bay.

Until she meets Oliver Marshall, the natural son of a duke, raised by a farmer and with ambitions towards Parliament. He's not like any man she's ever met, in fact he tells her she's the last woman he would ever marry. But he understands her, offering friendship and a chance to be herself. And for a girl who must always pretend, well, that's worth a lot more than a hundred thousand pounds...

This is the second book in the Brothers Sinister series (The Duchess War), but it also has close connections to the prequel novella, The Governess Affair, since Oliver is the illegitimate bump that causes so much trouble there. As with all of Courtney Milan's excellent stories this is more than just a historical romance. This time we have politics, the horrors of Victorian medicine and the cruelty of casual racism mixed in with colonial tensions. It's beautifully researched and wonderfully written, providing a rich and vivid backdrop for the main characters' adventures.

I Just recently discovered Courtney Milan and am hooked. I did not think I would like anything that was not modern but this was well written and Made me feel like I could picture the scenes the characters even their facial expressions. I like how Oliver and Jane got together and even more her sisters deviousness and braveness for her time. Well written absolutely loved it.

This book is as accomplished as the other ones in this series, but for some reason I didn't quite enjoy it as much as I did those. I wish I could put my finger on why that was the case, because it features the same believable, flawed characters, the same assured writing style, the same witty exchanges and the same level of surprise. Maybe that was the problem - I've read too many novels by this author in too short a space of time, and I need to switch to something else again.
Don't let that put you off though; this is still a very good romance novel, which will surprise you at almost every turn. Its characters are well-fleshed-out and likeable, and there are a few subplots which keep everything ticking over nicely so that you've reached the last page before you realise it. Recommended for everyone who likes historical romance with a dash of politics and main characters who aren't heartstoppingly beautiful.

A well crafted and clever piece full of frills, embellishments and feathers. It s cheeky, romantic and laugh out loud funny, as well as being well crafted and light hearted. Finished it earlier today but still laughing at the ending and the will reading was inspired. Love it. Going for final book in series. Would make a great holiday read. Uplifting.

This is yet another winner by Courtney Milan. A desperate woman, a desperate man.Our heroine is desperate to not get married until after her sister is of age so that she can take her away from their uncle and give her a life. Our hero feels that he has to be a man of power to make up for his earlier life. She acts just a little too over the top, to put off potential suitors - after all she is an heiress. He is promised everything he wants if he makes her unacceptable to the ton. The only problem is, they are drawn to one another.
I like these series books by Milan, a definite re read

I like CM's writing style - I find it lively and amusing. Her plots are engaging and her characters are animated. In this series I very much enjoyed the interaction of the lead characters and the strength of the heroine in particular.

I really did love this book. Miss Jane Fairfield is quite erratic, eccentric and loveable. I felt for her in her misadventures and in her growing love for Oliver. I was so pleased when she had her little triumphs and downcast when things went awry. So without giving away any spoilers , a great book to read and an unforgettable and plucky heroine. Highly recommend

This may just be the best Historical Romance I've ever read.

I cannot even remember why I picked this up (I have short term memory loss issues), I just thought it would be a good idea and boy was it ever.

This book kind of just gets rid of quite a bit of tropes that are common in the genre. You don't have rakes, you don't have perfect characters, the beauty of these characters is not important, the characters are presented as individuals instead of a unit. It's almost as if Courtney wrote this book with me in mind.

While I enjoy the usual historical romance, they are usually guilty pleasures, not something extraordinarily unique. This one though, this one was special. The only other historical romance I can think of that made this happy was Then Came You by Lisa Kleypas.

I have to start with Oliver. He was PERFECT. Like where can I find one perfect. He is a bastard and has always been shunned his whole life because of this. His parents have always been encouraging and great but that didn't protect him from the experiences he had when he went to college, which caused him to disappear inside his own cocoon, making him forget about how his own rebellion against society. He molded himself into what they expected from him instead of what he believed. In spite of all that you can still see his determination. He will do whatever he can to get what he wants, but he'll let you know if he's about to destroy you to get there (or maybe he just really liked Jane). But my favorite thing about him was that he wasn't a rake. Half the historical romances out there have either rakes or angry young men for male leads but Oliver was neither. Oh he was angry but he wasn't a controlling douche bag. He was a sweetheart. His inner struggle was heartbreaking to watch.
