I should have known that
I should have known that the best story in this series would come at the end of it. This story has everything I love in romance, from an awesome hero to a wonderful heroine, a host of great characters, plenty of humor and a romance filled with sensuality to curl your toes. But what made this story so god to me, were two things, Villiers's six children and a dialogue between every character that is written to perfection.If you love solid, well written and fast paced stories that will engage all your senses, than look no further, but I warn you. In order for you to get the scope of the character of our duke, you'll have to start from book one and follow through to the end, as the duke is one of the most common denominators throughout the series. I found the series well written and some of the stories I liked more than the others, but one character stands out more than any other and that's Villiers.There was a little grievance I had almost at the end, but that in no way has diminished the joy I had in reading it.My advice to you is not to read this series out-of-order. I started with the book one, Desperate Duchesses (Desperate Duchesses, #1), then I skipped to Duchess By Night (Desperate Duchesses, #3), followed by this one, A Duke of Her Own (Desperate Duchesses, #6) and finishing the series with, This Duchess of Mine (Desperate Duchesses, #5) . I still have to read An Affair Before Christmas (Desperate Duchesses #2) and When the Duke Returns (Desperate Duchesses #4). Which I'll probably do next week. If you have the time and money, this series is worth it.The full series reading order is as follows:Book 1: Desperate DuchessesBook 2: An Affair Before ChristmasBook 3: Duchess By NightBook 4: When the Duke ReturnsBook 5: This Duchess of MineBook 6: A Duke of Her OwnMelanie for b2b

I really wanted to like this novel, but Elanor just wasn't that compelling of heroine. I kept wishing I was going to read from another woman's POV. It got to a point that I skipped ahead to see where the novel was going then I stopped altogether. =0/

Things have gotten very i

Things have gotten very interesting in Regency romance land. Things that used to be suggested are now out in plain sight, and I think that is a good thing. It gives a more layered look at the time period, a grittier taste of what life could be like in a time where everybody had a place and kept to it, and manners and appearances are more important than anything else. Both Dukes and both daughters of dukes in this novel are very well drawn, full bodied and flawed. This is a very tasty addition to the genre.

There was only one thing

There was only one thing that bothered me a bit about this book. SPOILER ALERT!! The premise that the Duke initially chose Lissette over Eleanor was the the former really didn't care about his childrens' parentage and would thus be a good mother to them. At no stage did Eleanor comment that she had an issue with the children - she clearly didn't. Lisette's character was much too immature to deal with society as the mother of six illegitimate children, whereas Eleanor clearly was not. This irked me a bit since James' novels (from the two I've read, which isn't many, I grant you) seem to have strong, sensible characters, both men and women. Still, a really enjoyable read!

The only reason I give th

The only reason I give this book 4 stars and not 5 is because the beginning was just so horribly boring. I picked it up and as I started reading, but I just couldn't get into it after 10 or so pages, so I started more or less just skimming pages to see if I even wanted to keep going. Then, somewhere around page 50 a passage caught my eye and from that moment I literally could not put the book down. The only problem was that I had started reading it at just after midnight and by was 4am by the time I was done. That being said, it was one of the best romances I've ever read. Neither the hero or heroine were over the top, but they had a real quality about them that you could easily identify with. With all the characters actually, even the more minor ones. I also found the plot to be refreshing and different than what I've read before. This is one of those books where everybody had their own issues and they all happened to be in the same place at the same time, but nothing that happened seemed out of place either. There were no easy conveniences for the sake of getting to the end, it all played out and felt like you were really there watching everything unfold. This is my first book by Eloisa James, and I am not disappointed, I will definitely read some more of her work.

I had not read any of Elo

I had not read any of Eloisa James' books prior to reading her newest Duchess book, "A Duke of Her Own", this past week. If this book is an indication of James' other books - particularly her Duchess series - then I deserve a kick for not picking up her books before this. In "A Duke of Her Own", Leopold Dautry, the Duke of Villiers, needs to marry - and marry nobly. Since his options only include daughters of dukes, he's limited in his choices - Eleanor, the beautiful and intelligent daughter of the Duke of Montague, or Lisette, the beautiful and free spirited daughter of the Duke of Gilner? From what I gather reading this book and excerpts from previous Duchess books, Villiers is a notorious scoundrel who appears in each of the previous Duchess books. I hope all of the heroes in the other Duchess books are as delicious as Villiers. I can't wait to scoop up the rest of this series.
