Historical romance
In exchange for an honest review

I have read books where people are engaged, and then they meet the one. But here, well Genevieve thinks she is in love with perfect normal Harry, and she thinks it until the end, like really, almost the end of the book. Which was rather disturbing when I should rally for her romance with Alexander.

Alexander is a Duke (yay a Duke), he finds his fiancee in bed with another man, and plans a revenge. Ok his revenge is such an asshat thing to do! Seduce and leave the sister of the man who wronged him. Hey, that is so not cool! But then again, we all know he is gonna fall madly in love with her, and he does. He does loose sight of his revenge fairly quickly.

They meet, they banter, he tries to coach a smile out of her (as she is heartbroken since Harry does not want her). But yes even when she starts something with the Duke, she is still madly for Harry.

I did enjoy the book, but girl, you need to drop that Harry dude and take a Duke.

The narration was perfect. I always like Justine Eyre, you can not go wrong with a book narrated by her!

For years, he's been an object of fear, fascination...and fantasy. But of all the wicked rumors that shadow the formidable Alexander Moncrieffe, Duke of Falconbridge, the ton knows one thing for certain: only fools dare cross him. And when Ian Eversea does just that, Moncrieffe knows the perfect revenge: he'll seduce Ian's innocent sister, Genevieve—the only Eversea as yet untouched by scandal. First he'll capture her heart...and then he'll break it.

But everything about Genevieve is unexpected: the passion simmering beneath her cool control, the sharp wit tempered by gentleness...And though Genevieve has heard the whispers about the duke's dark past, and knows she trifles with him at her peril, one incendiary kiss tempts her deeper into a world of extraordinary sensuality. Until Genevieve is faced with a fateful choice...is there anything she won't do for a duke?

She carried a torch for Harry until the end?! Oh, I wouldn't like that! :( At least Justine narrated.

Mary Kirkland said...

That is an asshat way to get revenge but at least it ended well.

Blodeuedd said...

Yes! So weird

Blodeuedd said...

SUch a d'ck move

Greg said...

Yeah I say go with the Duke.

BiblioSanctum said...

LOL it's great that things worked out in the end, but yeah, what a dick move for the Duke to take his revenge out on the poor girl who had absolutely nothing to do with his fiancee cheating on him! Hopefully logic isn't something Genevieve looks for in a guy, because clearly he has none :P

I don't think I'd buy the romance if she was into another guy until nearly the end, but sounds like the duke had to get his head on straight with that revenge stuff, too.

I'm not sure I'd pick this one up, but this review sure is fun! Hugs, RO

Oh it looks good

Carole's Random Life in Books said...

She needed to move on to the Duke as soon as Harry wronged her. I probably would have wanted to yell at her throughout the book :)

the bookworm said...

ugh revenge on the poor sister? At least he let that go and they fall in love.

Blodeuedd said...

You can never go wrong with a Duke

Blodeuedd said...

He was mad, and he gave up at once, so at least he is good inside ;)

Blodeuedd said...

It was very strange. Oh he had his head straight on at once. While she was crazy in love with her guy adn sleeping with the Duke

Blodeuedd said...

Blodeuedd said...

She did love her Harry

Blodeuedd said...

He is a weird one

Karen said...

That seems like a long time in a book to be hung up on someone else. lol I hope it felt like when they finally got together you felt it.

Your favorite narrator! I think I would be very frustrated with this one - with her dreaming of another... But he's a DUKE!

Carole Rae said...

When in doubt take the duke!

Blodeuedd said...

Not really since that was like 1 page before the end

Blodeuedd said...

Aye

Blodeuedd said...

Yes stop thinking of the other guy, go for the Duke girl
