Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Romance novels often quietly advance the idea that women deserve to be accepted for who they are, and this amusing and heart-wrenching story offers a perfect example of a character who fights for the life and love she wants, not once but twice.” New York Times Book Review
“James…eloquently expresses the power of love, family, honor, and honesty. James’ magic is in the prose and the emotional depth of each word. No reader is immune to the feelings James elicits deep within their heart and soul.” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
“With lively banter, sly wit, and elegant prose, James cleverly guides a stubborn American heiress and an arrogant duke to the altar in a seductive late-Georgian romp that is graced with fascinating historical detail and well-placed Shakespearean references.” Library Journal
“James deftly marries insightful character development with a smartly written plot, and then wraps the resulting irresistible love story up with an abundance of wit-infused dialogue and a refined brand of sensuality.” Booklist
“James’…nontraditional plot provides an interesting and moving take on courtship and marriage, plus an engaging American’s view of Regency England. A gratifyingly lush, vibrant, and emotional romance.” Kirkus Reviews
“James enlivens a series of classic romance clichés with congenial characters and historical tidbits…Though it has a well-trodden conflict, this romance is still gratifying.” Publishers Weekly
“Narrator Kate Reading expertly showcases lovely but flighty American heiress Merry Pelford…Reading’s ability to make the duke sound arrogant and attractive and his brother arrogant and amusing is a tribute to her talent as a narrator. Merry is also portrayed with some complexity: She’s less than discerning in her relationships with members of the opposite sex yet remains an enchanting character. Reading also excels in her portrayals of Merry’s snobbish American relatives and the duke’s stodgy upper-crust acquaintances.” AudioFile

Author Bio: Eloisa James

Eloisa James, a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, wrote her first novel after graduating from Harvard, but alas, it was rejected by every possible publisher. After she got an MPhil from Oxford, a PhD from Yale, and a job as a Shakespeare professor, she tried again, with much greater success. In 2013 she won a Rita Award for Best Romance Novella. She teaches Shakespeare in the English department at Fordham University in New York. She is the mother of two children and, in a particularly delicious irony for a romance writer, is married to a genuine Italian knight.
