Thomas did come across as a rather more likeable character than the rather ineffectual chap of the previous book. Amelia was a good, strong character in this story, caged by her family's expectations of her and worried, at least initially, that she's marrying a man who barely even notices her. As the book moved forward and it appeared Thomas would no longer be the duke there were some interesting moments as he imagined his life without this enormous part of his identity but overall the story felt thin in places. Julia Quinn has a sparky, lively writing style which is good to read if often historically inaccurate.Read more ›
There really should be a higher than a 5 ++ Star rating, as this book deserves it.
The flip side of the story - from the point of view of Thomas, the Duke of Wyndham, before he was dispossessed of his title by Jack (see The Lost Duke of Wyndham). Complicated? Oh you bet ya little cotton socks it is ......... and perfectly written.
Thomas the Duke of Wyndham has been engaged to Amelia since they were both in their cradle, but has dragged his well polished Hessians, and never quite managed to make it to the alter. Along comes Jack the Highwayman, who dispossesses him of the title of Duke and marries Grace their grandmother's companion. What of Amelia? Read the book people ................. I love, love, love it ........... no doubt both of the books will be read, and re-read over and over again.
Run and buy it .... laugh and marvel out just what a comic genius Julia Quinn is.
