This Duchess of Mine by Eloisa James
I usually love her attention to detail but I wish she curbed it a little in here because it made the story drag on and become tedious especially when Jemma gets carried away daydreaming over someone’s embroidered coat or dress endlessly. Her novels have been published to great acclaim. For the next nine years thr cavorted abroad, creating one delicious scandal after anoth No man can resist Jemma’s sensuous allure.
It’s probably the highpoint of the book. Unfortunately, although it deserves credit for uniqueness and creativity, it was overly flowery and a tad boring, and I found myself skimming the pages. The tricks and games that Jemma plays with min husband are things that I’ve seen real people do. Kensington, London, England Although she tries hard to hide her feelings for her husband, she wears her heart on her sleeve and all the servants know how much she misses him.
Say No to the Duke.
This Duchess of Mine
I needed to have this subject addressed in a deeper way and somehow I just felt Jemma accepted it all too easily. Posted by blonde unicorn at Tuesday, July 28, May 26, Imprint: May 28, Amy rated it liked it Shelves: The One That Got Away.
I enjoyed reading This Duchess of Mine so thoroughly that my husband even remarked that I had the goofiest smile on my face the entire time. A two-edged knife I may say especially since he waited for so long and did nothing to patch things up. She should behave as if there was nothing untoward about the evening. The two entered into an arranged marriage at a young age and while Jemma was infatuated with Elijah he did not return the sentiment. And she had a shrewd feeling that he had as little interest in her as she had in him.
I was afraid it wouldn’t live up to my own hype, but oh it did. She wanted all the passion and energy her husband devoted to the House of Lords, to the fate of England.
A Gentleman Never Tells. Generally, a lady allowed two, three, even four gentlemen into the dressing room to help her choose patches and lace.
Well, I’ve been dying to read Jemma’s story – but I have to say, I was a little disappointed. How to write a great review. I’ve now been married almost as long as the duke and duchess and I think that may be part of the reason I connected so strongly with this book and finished it in less duchesx a day.
The author handled it pretty well in duchess way of seeing it. This story had a bad start from many points of view. Jul 12, JoAnn rated it it was amazing Shelves: P seeing him in here all pensive, brooding and jaded made him even more intriguing and the stand out character he is. Because I would, Jemma.
Desperate Duchesses Series
A Kiss at Midnight. I was vaguely disappointed by this story, after all the build-up of the relationship in the first four books in the series.
James pulled off the whole heart problem thing. Elijah has been working himself almost to death at his job and Jemma wants him to cut back. I wish I owned a copy so I could skim through it again. Villiers wants names help Elijah as a friend, especially with his heart condition, trying to find him a doctor who can treat him.
Romance Reviews by Alice: This Duchess of Mine
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. We appreciate your feedback. Those of you following me on Twitter might be surprised I finished this book. I loved the chess aspect of this book. You know, the one about why. I went into this thinking I had the overall back story of Jemma and Elijah based on the other books I read in this series, their story started to unfold in the side stories of the previous books.
Of course there are still significant issues to resolve, or else we wouldn’t have a book: To her mind, nothing suited her quite as much as dishabille, to be with her face painted, but her hair unpowdered, her legs showing through the frail lawn of her chemise.
