When the duke returns

I’m currently reading—and by currently I mean sneaking in reads at work!—When the Duke Returns by Eloisa James. This novel is part of the “Desperate Duchesses” series. I read the previous three books and really enjoyed them. The truth is, to me, Eloisa James can do no wrong (just remember, she isn’t a straight-romance writer, more like a Shakespeare meets romance kinda gal).

I’m on the eighth chapter of WTR and I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed a book this much; I am LOVING the characters and the story line.

I hope no one develops a case of the stupid or a double personality disorder like it happens in so many books or else I’ll have to jump out a window!

I feel as though I should like EJ's books more than I actually do but quite often they don't fully work for me! I always tend to be more interested in the background romance than in the main characters.

That's the way I feel too, Marg. I like EJ's writing in general, but often I find she writes a good 3/4 of a story and then loses the plot or something. It just seldom hits all the emotional notes I would like it to.

I still buy and read her books, though. I haven't read this latest one yet, but it's on the TBR shortlist.

This is next on my list, right now I am finishing Cathy Maxwell's A Seduction at Christmas and loving it. As for EJ, I have most of her books and she is one of the romance authors I try to pick up each book she writes.

I thought the book was really good at the beginning and then went to pieces toward the middle. The end was just OK IMO.

I'm really looking forward to reading Jemma and Beaumont.
