    Simply wonderful!

    I just read and thoroughly enjoyed Maggie Dove's latest release, CALL ME DUCHESS, which is a prequel to ANGEL OF WINDWORD. Once again Maggie combines mystery with romance producing a simply wonderful read!

    The One Hundred Romances Project Review

    A rapist is on the loose in London. Not exactly what you want to read in a romance novel, right? Don't worry. There aren't any actual rape scenes in Call Me Duchess. The rapes just happen to be the driving force behind the plot.

    This story starts out with four separate plots and expertly weaves them into one. Point A: Debutantes are leaving balls in the company of a certain gentleman and then retiring to the country with a sudden illness the next day (see also: rape). Point B: The three penniless Wiggins sisters spend the season with their aunt and uncle in London in order to snare husbands on their father's orders. Point C: The middle Wiggins daughter, Marguerite, has been hopelessly in love with the Duke of Wallingford for several years, although she has never met the man. Point D: The Earl of Windword's sister managed to escape being raped, and her brother is determined to find the man who did it.

    That seems like quite a bit to pack into one novel, right? Fear not. Everything comes together rather quickly, except for the identity of the rapist. I guessed who it was about two-thirds of the way through, but I tend to be pretty astute when it comes to things like that. As odd as this may sound, I really liked that parts of the story were told through the eyes of the rapist. These bits were told in first person, and it was terrifying to be inside this man's head.

    I would say that Call Me Duchess differed from other romances in that there were four main female characters in this book, and we learned a little bit about the courtship of each one. While the primary focus was certainly on Marguerite, the secondary characters were not forgotten. Things really start to heat up when Marguerite, always intent on the Duke, seems to be falling for Ashton James, her chaperone for the season. Being as stubborn as she is, Marguerite refuses to recognize her feelings for Mr. James until it is almost too late. There is a dreadful misunderstanding, the unmasking of a rapist (and assorted other folks), and there may even be a happy ending.

    I enjoyed reading this one. The characters were very well-developed, at times actually making me cringe because they reminded me of people I know, the plot moved quickly, and the suspense was high. I would certainly recommend reading this one. I also plan to check out some of Maggie Dove's other work as well.
