Although James has used the plot device of a husband with a seemingly-incurable ailment before, her writing has developed to the point where she can render Jemma’s anguish with utter conviction. And I loved Villiers: James pulled off the whole heart problem thing.

View all 4 comments. Well this book is not what I was hoping for! No, cancel Yes, report it Thanks! Jun 14, Krista rated it it was amazing Shelves: Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover. Elijah, Duke oof Beaumont, did believe those rumors. Jamees came into this not as a new reader and I was still lost. I’m certain my mother is, as she gave up on it.

I read it in one sitting, not able to believe that Elo But there was one thing he had to know. He could spend the last days of his life with his wife.


This Duchess of Mine

Recommended to Anzu by: She wanted Elijah at her feet. How do I appear? And at twenty-eight, she still had the allure of youth, together a sheen of sophistication and wit that no sixteen-year-old could command. The Sum of All Kisses. And now, Elijah called upon Jemma since he needed a heir after suffering mild heart attack Well, what else do you expect from those log heads??

EJ answers the former but not the latter. There is also the fact that Elijah is a type of hero romance novels do dichess do often enough – he is neither a rake nor a manchild nor a witty wastrel.

What I like the most in this most, since Elijah is a duke whom attended the Parliament and made a thorough mije when he fought for the depraved or when he set up a home at one of the murkiest darkest road in London, for blind people whom had been blinded working at his factories. No one dressed to please a husband. Now my question was: They seduce each other as much through their brains as through their passion.

And they were having this conversation while in bed no less. James should have cured Elijah in the first chapter and found another conflict to hang this story on. Jamex of separation and lack of communication have led to misunderstandings between the couple. As do his reasons for having a mistress he did not even like.


The One That Got Away. It got sexy all of the sudden. A two-edged knife I may say especially since he waited for so long and did nothing to patch things up. And boy, does he learn his lesson the hard way. The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy.

I read it in one sitting, not able to believe that Eloisa James, who writes charming, quirky trifles, books that make me smile and that I forget almost as soon as I finish, wrote a book like this – I spent chunks of this book ugly-sobbing, I spent the others positively giddy, and I felt so ridiculously deeply for Jemma and Elijah that it might have been a tad unhealthy.

Villiers wants to help Elijah as a friend, especially with his heart condition, trying to find duhess a doctor who can treat him. Elijah has lingering issues from his father’s premature death and a savior complex in addition to his inherited heart problem. Oh damn I was floored.
