Anges for a brief marriage to Sebastian Hazelton whose aristocratic British family sorely needs a benefactor Once in England her foolproof plan to wed inherit and divorce proves complicated than Zoe had anticipated Nigel Hazelton Duke of Langford and Sebastian's older brother is as austere and imposing as the family's ancestral estate Still reeling from the Great War. In the past I ve often complained about romance novels about how they always end with a couple getting married and the woman with a babe in her womb So predictable And is that really a HEA We all know there s so much to a woman s life to marriageThis story goes that further step and for that I ll give it a few points but now I understand why most stories end with marriage It gets so boring after that Though it didn t have to beI loved the first part of this book loved the heroine the scandal surrounding her arrival and the family she is marrying into I laughed at her shocking remarks to all the uptight women applauded her stance on women s rights wanted of her flying escapades This was truly a heroine after my own heartoh and I grinned when she criticized the English upper class for having inherited their fortune rather than working for it However that last bit being said I was surprised at how she changes after she s wed It s not like she works for anything either never did come to think of itAfter she s married all she does is think about sex how to get her husband to visit her bed often why her husband isn t sleeping with her That becomes the main focus of her life of her very existence And then something bad happens and the story just won t let up on it and the emotional ramifications I realize it s hard to go through in real life but to pound on and on and on about it The experience became too much of the story The heroine became a ninnyAnd then suddenly she declares I intend to be the first female to circumnavigate the globe I can do this you need three things guts ability and money I do that those things Nigel her husband And I want to the world that I doAnd ohmy poor heart I got excited for nothing NOTHING Oh there s a brief mention one sentence of her flying from FL to NY but that s all Instead the story chooses to focus on her just doing something randomly stupid And then suddenly she s afraid to fly over water this girl was going to fly over the Atlantic Huh So while I loved her in the beginning in the end I decided she was all bark no biteThe first part of the story has so much going on a younger sister in love with no dowry a dowager stuck in the old ways the uestion of a brother s sexuality an uncle who has reason to throw the heroine s mother in jailso much suspense and excitement that all disappears once the heroine marries and her focuses in life completely changeFull review and great uotes

    An interesting twist on a historical romance involving dukes and duchesses and the snobbery of England vs the vulgarity of Americans I enjoyed it and was well on my way to a four star read but the ending really fell flat for meTHINGS I LIKEDI enjoyed Zoe's antics and her enthusiastic way of doing spontaneous things almost deliberate

    I read An American Duchess in two sittings and then I just spent a ridiculous amount of time managing my frustration with the book To be clear I didn't hate it I was just extremely disappointed I couldn't love it or even li

    Ehhhh This is really historical than romance There was SO MUCH bad stuff And all in a REALLY SHORT amount of time And really fixing it took a relatively short amount of time tooI don't know I don't know I think the book took on too much maybe There wasn't enough time to deal with everything it tried toAnd the beginning part happened too uickly too Like Zoe showing up and changing all their lives?

    35 Lost steam in the second half Full review to follow I've been fairly taken with World War I novels for the past while thanks to an introduction to the post war years via Simone St James With this year's centenary it's been remarkably easy to get your hands on anything WWI related I've been particularly drawn to the aftermath of the war and the inevitable coping strategies that the survivors use to help themselves deal with the changed
