The Unexpected Duchess
The Unexpected Duchess | Valerie Bowman
5 posts | 4 read | 1 to read
IN THIS BATTLE OF WITS Lady Lucy Upton's tongue may be too sharp to attract suitors but her heart is good, and when her painfully shy friend Cassandra needs help she devises a brilliant scheme to help her discourage an unwanted suitor, the Duke of Claringdon. Lucy will hide behind the hedgerow and tell Cass just what to say to discourage the Duke of Claringdon...but it turns out that he's made of sterner stuff than either of them anticipated. And Lucy is shocked to discover that tangling with the tenacious man is the most fun she's had in ages. KISSES ARE THE BEST WEAPON Lord Derek Hunt made a promise to his dying friend to marry the demure Cassandra, and for a man who wants nothing more than peace and quiet after the horrors of war, she'll make the perfect bride. If only the impudent Miss Upton will let him court the girl! Doing battle is the last thing on his mind, but bantering with Lucy behind the bushes is too tempting to resist. And in The Unexpected Duchess, the spoils of this war just may be true love... Valerie Bowman's Secret Brides novels are: "Intriguing [and] engaging."Publishers Weekly "Too delightful to miss!"Lisa Kleypas "Sparkling...witty...engaging." RT Book Reviews

Mehso-so

Again I wish there was a choice between a pick and a So-so, this is a fun take on Taming of the Shrew but the author does not have the obsession with period detail that my favourite writers have.
