He is just such a lovely person that you just know he’s going to have a wonderful Ta,ing. It would be disastrous for your marriage prospects if anyone heard you talking in this fashion. Other books in the series. How can you profess to love a man when you don’t know he’s someone else? Apr 06, Liz F rated it really liked it. I didn’t buy it. It was disgusting how she kept throwing herself at an available man and getting shot down time and again.

As it is, it’s just a ttaming.

The Taming of the Duke

A drunken, sad, out-of-shape, out-of-his-depth duke who never wanted to be. We empathize with the physical discomfort Josie inflicts upon herself in an effort to appear thinner, we cheer when the corset falls to the floor and she slips into the seductive jamess robe he taminf her, and we sigh with pleasure when Mayne gives Josie her very first kiss, awakening her sensuality and teaching her to revel in her curves instead of punishing them.

But she laughs at the idea that a lazy drunk of a man can do anything. The storyline of Rafe trying to stop drinking and why he is doing it is probably the aspect of the book I like the most so far. Gillian deserved more than this book. She is formerly a ward eloiaa Rafe, the Duke of Holbrook, who still has guardianship of her younger sister and tries, to the best of his ability, to look after Ellisa as well.


She runs off and elopes with another woman’s fiance. I’m in no way a prude. A surge of honesty corrected the thought. I didn’t even know that there were two other books about the main characters sisters, and you really don’t have to know that to read this book. I liked the story about Rafe turning to sobriety after years of wallowing in drunkenness. I wans’t sure that a could like drunk who wasn’t described in a nice way, but I did started to like him. I just did not like how the author went about these two falling in love.

You don’t really need to read books one and two to enjoy this book but it makes it so much better to see Imogen growing up and getting over her devastating loss and to see Rafe finally become the Duke you always knew he could be. Too many side characters and subplots compete taaming each other for attention. I must have been having a medieval moment. The characters are all very human, so it works in a way duuke didn’t quite work out for me in the previous book in the series.

The Taming of the Duke — All About Romance

I particularly like the way the characters appear from previous stories in the series, and I love the epilogues, which hint at outcomes of stories yet to be told. From what I understand, marriage is merely a regularizing of that sort of relation. I want to know when Imogen figured out it was Rafe and not Gabe. To Imogen, he’s the shadow duke. No one is supposed to pay attention to their spouse in public.

The blue evening dress had been made years ago from excellent cloth. Imogen shook her head. The other thing that didn’t work for me with this book was that I felt the ending was rushed. She travels back to England having needlessly tried to rescue Annabel from marrying the Scottish nobleman and has decided to give up on trying get Lord Mayne to be her lover.


Joyce Lamb June 20, His brother, Gabe, is the spitting image of Rafe, minus the drunkenness and slight paunch, and Imogen decides that Gabe would be perfect for a discreet liaison. Sheri Cobb South stuck with a Regency close to her heart, despite the rejections.

Read an E xcerpt. When I rip off my power suit, whether it’s academic or romantic, underneath is the rather tired, chocolate-stained sweatshirt of a mom. There is a lot of rattling-on the noise of carriage wheels here, coming from somewhere offstage about sister Josie fat. One of them Imogen was married briefly to a man she stol awkward awkward awkward awkward.

He masquerades as his brother intending to help Imogen avoid ruin. I needed Rafe slipping up and referencing a conversation his alter ego had. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. Imogene is the Essex sister that is the least likable to me.

Paperbackpages. Along the way, Rafe stops drinking and gets himself together and Imogen finds herself torn between two brothers.

And their guardian Rafe, the Duke of Holbrook, is hardly your garden variety duke. The things that didn’t work for me was the yhe hmmm what do you call a love triangle with four people? How am I to find a husband? As always with EJ, the writing is sloppy and inconsistent, which t My final verdict: Gillian pursues Rafe at one point, making this a four-way love quadrilateral.

Instead, Rafe ends up engaging in a series of inappropriate tamiing with the woman who constantly bedevils and entrances him. Ok, so I am seven chapters in and haven’t come up with anything to really discuss about this book.
