But what manner of seduction will make a man fall desperately in love. To me, she can do little wrong.

This Duchess of Mine — All About Romance

Jun 09, Eviltwinjen rated it it was amazing Shelves: It was intense and angsty and emotional. One of the things I loved about the book is that he softens around the edges about being a workaholic trying to save the world but he never does give it up – and Jemma accepts it about him, just as he accepts her impulses, her fashions, and her temper.

The hero Elijah and heroine Jemma have been married for nine years but they got off on the wrong foot and have been living apart for all but the past year during which the first four books occur.

I don’t blindly love all her books. I of course enjoyed Villiers’ scenes, and the way he helped to find min way to cure Elijah was a good way of showing their friendship. But there was one thing he had to know.

The Lady Most Willing She also decides she wants Elijah to enjoy ducchess more and laugh, so she decides she’s going to get her nemesis to flirt with Elijah – like that somehow is going to make Elijah love her? New Fruit Ninja record!!! Mass Market Paperbackpages.


When Elijah, who duchesss has fallen in love with, tells her that he loves his mistress she is devastated and runs off to Paris, where, after waiting several years for her husband to come and get her, she engages in her first affair. I must also admit, I find myself hoping Ms.

She wanted him to look at her with the same hunger that he showed for a new bill in Parliament. Jun 14, Krista rated it it was amazing Shelves: And I do love Elijah so much! I liked it but ultimately, I was not fully satisfied with the story she told here.

Top 5 quotes 5 He was the man she loved. I finished this a few days ago, so this won’t be the best review, but this was another good one! Thjs discovers his heart condition one day and is immediately panicked – even refusing to sleep with him because she fears he’s going to die and leave her all alone.

This Duchess of Mine

There is also the fact that Elijah is a type of hero romance novels do not do often enough – he is neither a rake nor a manchild nor a witty wastrel. Does he want to form a junior football team or what? It’s not a HEA if the hero ducbess, so I knew something would have to be done. WTF is he going to do with so many kids?

This Duchess of Mine by Eloisa James

The story was so powerfully moving! Without revealing too much of the story, let me just say that his having a mistress is an extremely logical step and is downright businesslike in nature, and not at all forged through loyalty or love. A woman with three maids, each with such decided opinions, can hardly bemoan her lack of guidance! I’m a fan of Eloisa James, but to me, of course she can do a little wrong.


This book is part of the series Duchesses-themed. WHY did Eli keep a mistress?

Finally there’s a book about Jemma and Elijah. But, I must say that it was remarkably good idea, to decide to read this story after all.

Elijah, Jemma, and Villiers. Elijah and Jemma have both been sinned against and sinning, and the reasons for their initial break, their subsequent conduct through separate years, and their rediscovery of each other and falling in love with the person the other has become are just such a joy to read and not something I’ve seen romance novels tackle much, and certainly not with such nuance and emotion. Despite all of the things I didn’t like about this novel, it was satisfying to see Jemma and Elijah resolve their marital difficulties.

We should save the trees!!! Unfortunately, minee it deserves credit for uniqueness and creativity, it was overly flowery and a tad boring, and I found myself skimming the pages. It’s her masterpiece, if I may say. Once Upon a Moonlit Night.
