They realize that their memories of each other may not be as accurate as they thought, and see each other with new eyes. Wanting him to have fun and loosen up seemed a little too far fetched a reason for having your husband flirt with another reason. I really found this unnecessary and immature. She is still flirting with Villiers, but they have both come to terms with the fact that they cannot have each other.

Seven Minutes in Heaven. Jemma is a strong character, with an outgoing personality, definitely ha Ok, I read this series all out of order, so this was the last one for me.

He has decided he needs an heir, and he needs one now. I often weave early modern poetry into my work; the same novel might contain bits of Catullus, Shakespeare and anonymous bawdy ballads from the 16th century.

James writing, I though the focus should have been more on the building up of their marriage – more interactions and dialogue between them as a couple – all of the ridiculous problems and ideas were just too distracting. Tue she tries hard to hide her feelings for her husband, she wears her heart on her sleeve and all the servants know how much she misses him.

I would love to read any HR which is inspired by controversial classics such as Dangerous Liasons. First, I found the illness plot to be ridiculous – there’s no way in this genre that the hero and heroine are not allowed to live happily-ever-after.

Well this book is not what I was hoping for!

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

If you’ve never read Eloisa James before, don’t start with this one – I think it’s her weakest so far. A Scot in the Dark. The Sum of All Kisses.

The slow development of understanding between husband and wife was touching. It duchess intense and angsty and emotional. Thanks for telling us about the problem. So with Elijah seemingly on the brink of death, Jemma is unsure what to do with her marriage, but they start “courting” each other – and finally, finally get together over a blind-folded game of chess.

Personally, I hate cheaters.

The two entered into an arranged marriage at a epoisa age and while Jemma was infatuated with Elijah he did not return the sentiment. Once Upon a Christmas Eve. Having Jemma understand was even more asinine and unrealistic. Still they kept to separate bedchambers. She dressed to amuse herself, and to dazzle the court. I usually love her attention to detail but I wish she curbed it a little in here because it made the story drag on and become tedious especially when Jsmes gets carried away daydreaming over someone’s embroidered coat or dress endlessly.


Yet the literature professor in me certainly plays into my romances. When Elijah, who thf has fallen in love with, tells her that he loves his mistress she is devastated and runs off to Paris, where, after waiting sever This is the last of this series for me because I started with the last book.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I had my misgivings because it felt as though the tension keeping Elijah and Jemma apart was, well, grasping at straws. mime

This Duchess of Mine

The story EJ decides to tell here is one of flirtation. Little does elpisa know that Elijah has been wanting to be with her for the past nine years, with only his crushing guilt stopping him.

I fell flat just for it. With the template drawn only in outline ja,es readers could DIY, Eloisa then issued a challenge: This is the last of this series for me because I started with the last book. First,he was unfaithful to her and she accepted it. You’ve successfully reported this review. There was nothing sensual about the word wife. He loosens up a little, though he’s still pretty set in his ways.

This book answered my questions rather well.
