'Duchess by Night' by Eloisa James {4 1/2 }

Harriet, the Duchess of Berrow, is finally seeking some excitement, after a lifetime as a wallflower.
And where better to begin than at the house of one of the most
disreputable men in the country, Lord Strange?
The high-stakes games of lust and chance that rule Strange's household mean,
however, that even crossing the threshold could entirely ruin her reputation.
So Harriet decides to swap her hoops and corsets for a pair of
breeches and transforms herself into a young male relative
of the Duke of Villiers.

Third book in the Desperate Duchess series and an absolute joy to read. While each book can be read on it's own accord, it is better to start at the beginning as there are reoccurring characters throughout the series.

Beautifully written and easily read, you don't want to put it down until your finish.

The characters are wonderful especially the Duchesses...

Harriet is a woman who just wants to be loved by a man and not come second in their life.
She is smart, brave, cheeky, loyal, and wanting the love of a good man. She sees all this in Lord Strange... even though he doesn't think he's good enough for her.

I'm absolutely loving this series and highly recommend it to those that love their Historical romance novels.
