Desperate Duchesses #8
Releases March 31, 2015
As a young girl, Emilia Gwendolyn Carrington told the annoying future Duke of Pindar that she would marry any man in the world before him—so years later she is horrified to realize that she has nowhere else to turn.
Evander Septimus Brody has his own reasons for agreeing to Mia’s audacious proposal, but there’s one thing he won’t give his inconvenient wife: himself. Instead, he offers Mia a devil’s bargain… he will spend four nights a year with her.
Four nights, and nothing more. And those only when she begs for them. Which Mia will never do.
Now Vander faces the most crucial challenge of his life: he must seduce his own wife in order to win her heart—and no matter what it takes, this is the one battle he can’t afford to lose.
Let's Sum It Up:
Mia and Vander are an epic pair. We are going to romance on the Desperate Duchesses in the world for a minute.
Is there a Happy Ever After?
I would like to think so. I would like to think that sometimes after impossible things, something breathtaking and fearless can happen and that the past can be overcome.
Eloise James knows how to rock a heroine's world. She knows the right writing recipe to keep us readers pining for more from her series. Honestly here there is so much fodder here from Eloise James's series and the Desperate Duchesses to keep me in a puddle of feels for a week. What these ladies stories bring are tales of woe turned triumph. There is a honest man out there for everyone.
Can love hurt? Sometimes there is pain that someone may cause another, in Four Nights with the Duke it is a love poem that strickens Mia's love life for years, but will she overcome scaring actions from callus youths permanently ruin her?
Was India, Lady X, from Three Weeks with Lady X takes readers on a marriage chase that is filled with a wealthy working woman finding the right match for her clients, and maybe herself in the process? Need we dare speculate where this may be going? But as we sit down to read these harrowing tales of heroines on paths of struggles we keep reading these books because like children we are hungering for these tales of Happily Ever After!
I could heat a house with my romance novels all Winter if need be and we were snowed in and I needed fire wood, but I can read them all again and again and get that warm feeling from the snarky playful interactions between characters and their struggles. I don't need a fire, I have the internal readers fire. The pages are like horses racing as I flip them fast scouring the pages for redemption, trust, tryst and the closure and romance that keeps the industry booming. We are like desperate readers, duchesses in our own hearts.
So while I love this series and I desperately hope there are many more tales, since they do never get old, pick up Four Nights with the Duke to see if only four nights a year could soothe these two souls playing with fire. It comes in stores Spring 2015 so pre-order for your heart's content.
