"When the Duke Returns" by Eloisa James [4]


Married by proxy as a child, Lady Isidore has spent years fending off lecherous men in every European court while waiting to meet her husband. She's determined to accept him, no matter how unattractive the duke turns out to be. When she finally lures Simeon Jermyn back to London, his dark handsomeness puts Isidore's worst fears to rest - until disaster strikes.

The Duke demands an annulment!

The fourth book in the Desperate Duchess series.

Thoroughly enjoyed this story about Isidore and her Duke Simeon. After waiting eleven years for her husband to claim her and their marriage, Isidore and her best friend Duchess Jemma Beaumont cook up a scheme to lure Simeon back from his travels in the wilds of Africa.
Isidore is ready in every way to become a wife and mother and the proper Duchess of Cosway.
Simeon on the other hand is unprepared for the headstrong beauty that is his wife. He has been instructed in the ways of...well he is just dull. He hides his emotions, he wants a wife who is biddable and will do as she is told.

Well let the games begin...

Who will win...or will there be a comprise of sorts...

Will both of them realize that they need each other before it is too late.

A good light fun hearted read.

I have never read this book but it sounds kind of interesting. I like the Science Fiction Adventures. Even though I never read this one, I do suggest for anyone looking into a really great book that keeps you on the edge of your seat, with some comdey and a little romance too. Its written by Nora Roberts, and it the circle Trilogy. Its had magic, past and present and shape shifters with vampires. Sounds kind of goofy trust me i thought that same until i started reading and couldn't put them down. Trust Me
