    In the past I've often complained about romance novels about how they always end with a couple getting married and the woman with a babe in her womb So predictable And is that really a HEA? We all know there's so much to a woman's life to marriageThis story goes that further step and for that I'll give it a few points but now I understand why most stories end with marriage It gets so boring after that Though

Set on a crumbling English manor estate during the height of the Roaring Twenties an American duchess must decide how much she's willing An American PDF to risk for the life she truly desires It's and New York heiress Zoe Gifford longs for the freedoms promised by the Jazz Age Headstrong and brazen but bound by her father's will to marry before she can access his fortune. An interesting twist on a historical romance involving dukes and duchesses and the snobbery of England vs the vulgarity of Americans I enjoyed it and was well on my way to a four star read but the ending really fell flat for meTHINGS I LIKEDI enjoyed Zoe s antics and her enthusiastic way of doing spontaneous things almost deliberately It was sort of funny to read about her thought process just before doing something shocking as she very nearly made a conscious decision to act a certain way without forethought That s confusing I know but it was in there and it was kind of endearing She s known true poverty so she appreciates every little thing about her affluent lifestyle now At first anyways Nigel Duke of Langford is the uintessential HR stuffy Duke only now we get one that s refusing to modernize to electricity and indoor plumbing just as much as short skirts and jazz music To be honest this Duke was just a bit TOO stuffy for meLOVED the setting loved the era LOVED the altogether different tone of the book with regards to the modern world clashing with the old days Cars vs horses the advancements in creature comforts and the abrupt and violent psychosocial changes that took place during this time period are fascinating NOT SO MUCHStubborn seemed to be the name of the game with both Zoe and Nigel and they took it too far Nigel s preoccupation with certain safety measures got old after awhile just as Zoe s utter disregard for any and all propriety did as well There seemed to be little to no compromise between the two for nearly the entire book It was one way or the other with a couple big incidents of crossoverThe last ten percent of the book felt completely incongruous from where I wantedexpected the book to go I felt like one character got to throw a fit and the other had to cave in Not to mention the way that a certain someone ended up acting completely out of character to an extreme while the other remained the same only now with a sense of right ness and superioritySo it was a fun read in parts Very emotional in others with regard to the war and the casualties that happened both during and after The romance was not as believable or romantic as I needed it to be I guess It felt too forced and like I said earlierthere was not a lot of compromise and meshing of two lives Advance copy provided for review

review An American Duchess

An American Duchess

Zoe arranges for a brief marriage to Sebastian Hazelton whose aristocratic British family sorely needs a benefactor Once in England her foolproof plan to wed inherit and divorce proves complicated than Zoe had anticipated Nigel Hazelton Duke of Langford and Sebastian's older brother is as austere and imposing as the family's ancestral estate Still reeling from the Great W. In the past I ve often complained about romance novels about how they always end with a couple getting married and the woman with a babe in her womb So predictable And is that really a HEA We all know there s so much to a woman s life to marriageThis story goes that further step and for that I ll give it a few points but now I understand why most stories end with marriage It gets so boring after that Though it didn t have to beI loved the first part of this book loved the heroine the scandal surrounding her arrival and the family she is marrying into I laughed at her shocking remarks to all the uptight women applauded her stance on women s rights wanted of her flying escapades This was truly a heroine after my own heartoh and I grinned when she criticized the English upper class for having inherited their fortune rather than working for it However that last bit being said I was surprised at how she changes after she s wed It s not like she works for anything either never did come to think of itAfter she s married all she does is think about sex how to get her husband to visit her bed often why her husband isn t sleeping with her That becomes the main focus of her life of her very existence And then something bad happens and the story just won t let up on it and the emotional ramifications I realize it s hard to go through in real life but to pound on and on and on about it The experience became too much of the story The heroine became a ninnyAnd then suddenly she declares I intend to be the first female to circumnavigate the globe I can do this you need three things guts ability and money I do that those things Nigel her husband And I want to the world that I doAnd ohmy poor heart I got excited for nothing NOTHING Oh there s a brief mention one sentence of her flying from FL to NY but that s all Instead the story chooses to focus on her just doing something randomly stupid And then suddenly she s afraid to fly over water this girl was going to fly over the Atlantic Huh So while I loved her in the beginning in the end I decided she was all bark no biteThe first part of the story has so much going on a younger sister in love with no dowry a dowager stuck in the old ways the uestion of a brother s sexuality an uncle who has reason to throw the heroine s mother in jailso much suspense and excitement that all disappears once the heroine marries and her focuses in life completely changeFull review and great uotes

Ar Nigel is now staging a one man battle against a rapidly changing world and the outspoken Zoe represents everything he's fighting against When circumstances compel Zoe to marry Nigel rather than Sebastian their heated uarrelling begets passion of another sort But with Nigel unwilling to change with the times will Zoe be forced to choose between her husband and her dream. 25 stars rounded down due to subzero chemistry see below But let it be known I love the era when this is set so fresh compared to the tired f ing Regency TBH I scanned through the final third because I didn t care At all The entire book was justflat Conflicts felt forced plot felt contrived characters felt lackluster In theory I liked these MC typesbut in this instance there was no sparkle No life They were just bland oatmeal ultra predictable in their responses to eually predictable stimuli Though I sympathized with their backstories I felt no depth or chemistry with Nigel Zoe they went from 0 to 90 in ten seconds from revulsion can t stand yer tude to wanting to hump in an airplane lovelorn gazes Yaaaawn Normally I like books with flamboyant flappers taciturn ex soldiers shell shock high society old world vs nouveau riche but alas This was a fail
