Christine Merrill ß The Inconvenient Duchess text

Dreams Yet every time she looked at dark brooding Marcus Radwell Duke of Haughleigh she felt inexplicably compelled and determined to make their marriage rea This is the new free read at tryharleuincom and it wasn't bad at all I really liked the hero who had been heartbroken and betrayed 10 years ago and was so gruff and bitter and angry but was a very kind and romantic soul under all that He was really rather sweet I also liked the heroine who was a take charge no nonsense kind of woman who was a bit naive but didn't fall for the hero at first sightI didn't like the villainness of the villain though St John the brother of the hero was just too bad and I hated how much time he spent with the heroine And everything he said and did was so obviously a lie I didn't have patience for it and wanted to skip ahead whenever he was in sightI did like that Miranda and Marcus actually slowly got to know each other and trusted on the perception they had of each other No huge Big Misunderstandings which I always appreciateHowever with all the build up for the bad guys plans the falling in love aspect got a bit glossed over and I'm not even sure they ever actually say they love each otherSo I wasn't entirely satisfiedSt John is the hero of the next book but I don't think I'm interested to see how he redeems himself

The Inconvenient DuchessDear Cici and FatherI have come to Devon and married a duke And I'm tired and hungry than I have ever been in my life Please let me come homeCompromised and I frigging LOVED this book I'm sorry I can't think of any other way to put itI was trolling my kindle for something to read the other night when I happened upon the title As I remembered exactly nothing about the book other than that I really liked it I figured what the heck and re read it Now I'm gonna gush I love Christine Merrill's writing An author of some wit her books are infused with a sense of it both in the prose and in her characterizations Not all authors have this and when I find one who does I glom their backlist like RIGHT NOW It doesn't hurt of course that The Inconvenient Duchess has one of my favourite plots ever a marriage contrived by a scheming relative bringing together the stuffed shirt Hero and an upstart heroine This Hero stomps about yelling at the staff and slamming doors just the way I like 'em He isn't so much of a boor that he doesn't recognize what a jackass he is and this is his saving grace The heroine is another favourite type of mine the ruinedpoorspinster with a temper I laughed out loud at some parts grinned to myself at others and thoroughly enjoyed every second of reading itOne of my favourite uotes from the book is here I know that you must have certainneeds she almost whispered the word If you might wish to visit your mistressI would not blame you for it He choked on his tea There are a few things we need to make clear lady wife Firstly I do not wish you to discuss such things at all but if you must you will not do so over the breakfast table Secondly if and when I seek to visit my mistress I will not ask or for that matter need your permission to do so Thirdly you should not even know of such things and if you do I'll thank you to keep the information to yourself The last thing I want to do is discuss my needs with my wife The last seemed to him so ridiculous a statement that he was momentarily struck dumb No wonder with an attitude like that he'd sought to avoid the married state for so longA couple of things kept this from being a 5 star perhaps it was a little rushed but that might be due to the fact that this is a Harleuin Historical than any other In any event it's going on my favourites shelf and is a perfect feel good regency keeperAnd I'm off to glom Christine Merrill's backlist
