Jul 12, JoAnn rated it it was amazing Shelves: My fears turned out to be well-founded. Wedding bells celebrating the arranged marriage between the lovely Duchess of Beaumont and her staid, imperturbable duke had scarcely fallen silent when a shocking discovery sent Jemma running from the ducal mansion. Desperate Duchesses 9 books.

I was pleasantly surprised. Never Judge a Lady by Her Cover. 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. Jemma has her conditions though.

It was far too obvious that they cared for one another, and the way Jemma in the early pages of the book seems to be manipulating anyone and everyone to begin the seduction for her estranged husband because he “needed some fun” really annoyed me. But now who can resist a man with such a kind heart? Lol yes I know Eloisa has rendered me a man woman. To me, she can do little wrong. I mean this from the bottom of my heart when I say this, God bless Eloisa for writing about Jemma, Elijah, and Villiers!

The Duchesw Most Willing Wicked and the Wallflower. She suspected that the house duchfss of her embarrassing, humiliating infatuation with her husband. It’s fortunate that this isn’t my first foray into EJ world; otherwise, I would have missed her better books. The conversation of veiled insults between Jemma and the Marquise was perfection. I was cracking up at some scenes.


The Lady Most Likely Now my question was: Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

I think he’s moved up the ladder and is only a rung or two below Villiers in my opinion now. Too much foot shuffling happens in duchsss.

Honestly, I tuis just leave my review at that one sentence and it would be complete. But man, he’s a hunk! They seduce each other as much through their brains as through their passion. It turned out that duchess as book’s heroine isn’t the only thing the series have in common, but the heroes as well. We appreciate your feedback.

When she first returned from Paris, she was too angry to contemplate marital intimacies, but then somehow the ducehss drained away. I had already grown to oc for the characters because they had been in the previous books. I found it very romantic to know that Elijah is good enough to his wife and honest enough with himself to realize the truth of the matter.

At the beginning it was tense and sad and then BOOM! Jemma had been betrayed since she found her husband with his mistress, and then she fled to Paris for nine years leaving her husband. They swiveled before her to display a powerful thigh, flaunt an embroidered coat or an enameled snuff box, drop roses, plums and poems at her doorstep. He was a chess master, for one thing.

I get that these are the top of the top of the aristocracy in the Georgian era – and that they’re going to be spoiled, arrogant and proud. They would be having a love scene while talking about Elijah’s previous mistress – it was just weird. A brilliant dancer, an exquisite dresser, a notable wit.

The understanding between Jemma and Elijah was touching, although they had been fighting on so many books in this series.


This Duchess of Mine (Desperate Duchesses, #5) by Eloisa James

Jemma was the most clever English Duchess in Paris. Please stop by and join the conversation on eloiwa readers’ pages. Presumably husbands were uninterested in seeing their wives dress; their secrets were all known and the thrill of the unfamiliar was lost. In my mind, they get their HEA in book four, the book before their own, and I usually just stop reading there. It was just what I wanted for Jemma. Throughout this whole series, they were great characters, and I was wanting to know more about them.

Elijah, in turn, has become one of if not my absolute favorite hero of Ms. Personally, I hate cheaters.

This Duchess of Mine (Desperate Duchesses, book 5) by Eloisa James

Yeah, right, as if jumping from the conjugal bed to the office desk was more palatable conduct jamed his deceased father’s. Do not mjne as a stand alone. He is by far my favorite character in the series and I feel bad for him when I see how many women use mien, or dump him, or use him and then dump him.

They compromised, which I liked. Sep 14, Belinda Kroll rated it liked it Shelves: There was no beginning to this just a long drawn out middle and an ending. It fits that he should have the spotlight when this series ends.

A thing I liked about this book is the unexpected twist in the story. And speaking of Villiers was I the only one who thought he was a true hero when he was using his sword steel sword you perverts!!!
