Sep 01, Rane rated it really liked it Shelves: keeper , traditional-regency. Nadine Miller pens down a fun little trad with a high in the instep duke and how he gets his comeuppance from a plain firebrand. The story isn't hardly new, but it was very fun, with our hero Jared, Duke of Montford who happen to turn 30 sees it as his duty and a promise to get marry have his heir and go on his merry way.
Jared is a snob. He knows he's a pretty big fish to land and has his aunts throw a party in order for him to pick a fluffy bride and be done with it. Until he comes face to fa Nadine Miller pens down a fun little trad with a high in the instep duke and how he gets his comeuppance from a plain firebrand. Until he comes face to face with our heroine Miss Emily Haliburton, who speaks her mind even when she doesn't know who the duke truly is, it's a refreshing change from everyone bowing at his feet.
It takes awhile for Jared to finally see the light, and it's all that much sweeter when he does. Emily is the type of character I adore, she's smart, and speaks her mind, while being out of the norm. Even with some events that the duke tricks her into, Emily always keeps a good head on her shoulder and shows the duke he can't push her around.
These two play off each other very well, and making them a cute couple with some hurdles to cross toward their HEA. This was just a fun trad, I'll be on the look out for more of Miller's backlist.

Don't get me wrong, this was a nice read but nevertheless there were some things I just did not understand: how did they come to love each other when they did not really spend that much time with each other? There was a lot of potential in the characters, especially Jared and the aunts, but the book did not go through with it, which was a real shame.
The same happened to the sparks: they were promising but not carried out I liked the idea of the story although it reminded me a lot of another book Don't get me wrong, this was a nice read but nevertheless there were some things I just did not understand: how did they come to love each other when they did not really spend that much time with each other? The same happened to the sparks: they were promising but not carried out I liked the idea of the story although it reminded me a lot of another book which is a favorite of mine Which may have been the deciding factor why I liked it ; So all in all this story is a nice read without much heat in it I read the book to the end, mainly because I wanted to see if I could get as interested and involved in it at any point as other reviewers apparently did.
But no, it never involved me in any way and left me feeling completely cold glad, in fact, that it was over in the end.
Most of the characters are one-dimensional and there is no character development at all. In fact, except for the heroine Emily and Edgar Rankin, the duke's business manager, conscience and friend, none of the main characters, including the hero, a rich and arrogant duke, the hero's two aunts, who set the whole plot up, and Emily's relatives, is in any way attractive as a person.
The plot is mostly a trainwreck, IMHO. The duke's elderly aunts organize a 2-week house party for the duke to choose a bride, inviting 5 eligible young ladies, along with their families, to attend the party. Emily, the heroine, is the plain poor-relation companion to her cousin, one of the "eligible" girls, who must snag a very wealthy husband ASAP because her father has wasted away his entire inheritance. Meanwhile, Emily falls madly in love with a guy she meets out on a walk in the woods, who very closely resembles her host, the high-handed and arrogant duke, except that he is casually dressed and acts like a normal human being.
Emily never once realizes that the guy is, in fact, the duke, neither from his face nor his voice.

After this unappealing setup, the plot moves quickly downhill, throwing in all sorts of Regency romance plot cliches as if there weren't enough to begin with , like a tree limb falling on the duke's head while he's meeting Emily and putting him in a coma, Emily being "ruined" by being found alone with the unconscious duke in a cabin in the woods and thrown out of her cousin's house, the aunts deciding that Emily is, in fact, the best bride for the duke and scheming to bring this about, the duke's mistress putting in an extremely unappealing appearance and putting Emily into a snit, etc etc.
I can't recommend this book. Jul 08, Larissa Lyons rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , historical-romance. Very likable leads, with a very different type of heroine, and I loved the way the Duke was given such a distinct personality — you cared for him even when he came across as a jerk. I got true butterflies during one scene.
The Duke's Dilemma by Elizabeth Chater
Excellently written! Shelves: regency. The Duke of Montford must have a wife but has no desire to find and court an eligible woman.
