Often times, I though Imogen was too forward for a I’m of two opinions on this book. The secondary romance was pretty sweet, as well, and after Imogen got through her issues and stopped being so hurtful and all around awful my dislike for her lessened, but I can’t say I was all that invested in the story. The writer gives no clue that Imogen had figured it out until suddenly she made a short remark to say she knew, and then the chapter ended.
Often times, I though Imogen was too forward for a woman of the early ‘s, but she was an interesting character. I must have been having a medieval moment. I really feel like every book so far in this series could be keepers if there was more focus on the leads. I was pleasantly surprised by this book!
In fact, we have something of a community going on my website.

Imogen wrings her hands and weeps a bit over her lost love, but it all seems a floisa put on.
This could be due to an overdose of Imogen from the earlier books or dduke lack of the Earl of Mayne who I am positively becoming obsessed with. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Even when he’d stopped drinking, there should have been some notice of change in his demeanor.
The Taming of the Duke
It’s her sexiest, to my mind. Es cierto que una novela tiene que ser entendida por si misma y no venir con folleto explicativo, pero creo que a esta novela se lo perdono. Newly sober, however, Rafe, has no intention of allowing Imogen to engage in illicit relations with another man. Other books in tamibg series. I don’t know if she wants the reader to believe that the heroine knew from the beginning but that doesn’t work for me because she compared how the two brothers kissed, so she had to believe at that point that she’d been kissed elolsa both.
As always horse racing and the strong sense of family the sisters share make these books so enjoyable.

Annabel had snuggled back down in the covers. Reading about her sisters Annabell and Tess, well that made be wanna read her two other books. I could really feel the author’s love for the literature she used as inspiration.
We see that Mayne cares for Josie and wants to empower her to be her true self.
A discreet male who knows just when to leave in the taking. It seems like they’re just friends. I didn’t even know that there were two other books about the main characters sisters, and you really don’t have to know that to read this book.
Annabel was looking fascinated.

But the way Imogen threw herself first at Maitland, then Ardmore, then Mayne and then Gabe just reeked of desperation. He is still maddeningly attracted to her and determined to disprove her theories about him.
But James managed to do it with finesse. And, going to plays.
I truly liked Rafe; his banter with Imogen was refreshing and sharp, as Imogen made no bones about what she thought of his drinking. Until he breaks all the codes of gentlemanly behavior…once again.
