The Scandal of The Deceived Duchess
This is an intriguing story that is full of drama, humor and romance, and is rich with history. (Too much history for my liking) Jonathan is bold, confident and chivalrous. Amelia is sweet, stubborn, somewhat shallow, snarky and smart. After taking over the ship that she and her maid were on, and finding out who Amelia is, Jonathan decides to ransom her. He thinks he's being a gentleman, she thinks he's a rake and a traitor. So all they do is bicker. Then Jake convinces Jonathan that she'd make a good wife for him, Jonathan vows to charm her. Not so easily done he finally consents to send her home. Then chases after her, but he's too late, the British have her. Time goes by and a friend convinces him to go to England to get her, and he ends up having to duel with her father. It is a really fascinating story, but I did skip through the parts of the history.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
