I love, love this writer and I loved this book. Olivia Laytton has been engaged to a man since infancy. Unfortunately, he would probably be considered slow by today's standards but she is willing to do her duty for her family. Her sister is about to be engaged to the hero Quinn and he probably has Aspergers. This shouldn't work, but it does! The two people who shouldn't fall in love do and risk hurting everyone around them. Thankfully she figures a way out of this. It is sweet and funny and the secondary characters are great. I couldn't stop reading it.— Rosa, New Jersey
“Eloisa James is extraordinary.”
In the capable hands of USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James, the fairy tales we loved as children take on vibrant—and sensuous—new life. With The Duke is Mine, the beloved author of A Kiss at Midnight and When Beauty Tamed the Beast gives the classic tale of the Princess and the Pea a delightfully romantic Regency spin. Fans of Victoria Alexander and Julia Quinn will simply adore this historical romance gem about a lady reluctantly betrothed to one duke but pursued by another; a tantalizing tale of love, lies, and one very uncomfortable mattress.
Eloisa James is a USA Today and New York Times bestselling author and professor of English literature, who lives with her family in New York, but can sometimes be found in Paris or Italy. She is the mother of two and, in a particularly delicious irony for a romance writer, is married to a genuine Italian knight. Visit her at www.eloisajames.com.
