Overview

The Dissolute Duke by Sophia James



The rumor is up and the banns are read: The Dissolute Duke has finally wed!

With a name synonymous with sin and debauchery so shocking it is spoken of only in whispers, Taylen Ellesmere, Duke of Alderworth, is more surprised than anyone when he finds himself forced to marry! Before the ink is dry on the register, he turns his back on this sham of a marriage and leaves.

Three years later, having barely survived the scandal, Lady Lucinda has placed one delicately shod foot back in the hallowed halls of the ton when her husband returns. He has an offer she can't refuse. And in exchange? Their wedding night!

About the Author

Georgette Heyer novels formed Sophia James’s reading tastes as a teenager. But her writing life only started when she was given a pile of Mills & Boons to read after she had had her wisdom teeth extracted! Filled with strong painkillers she imagined that she could pen one, too. Many drafts later Sophia thinks she has the perfect job writing for Harlequin Historical as well as taking art tours to Europe with her husband, who is a painter.

An ok ronance too much time spent on how Lucy was ruined and the fallout, not enough time spent on the actual romance

The last book in the series was just good for me. In previous books Lady Lucinda was quite a handful. I guess she has grown up now and lost some of her fire. This is a must read if only to find out what happened to Lady Lucinda.

I was so ready to read the 4th and last book of this series! In review, the author's storyline had so much potential which may have been lessened due to book length constraints. The elements of a good regency romance are there, but I would have missed out if I hadn't already been given the background information in the previous books of the series. I agree with the reviewer who had to stop and reread to get the meaning. I kept losing the story's momentum trying to get through the wordy prose.

No matter how much I dislike a book, I always try to find something likeable in it. Whether it be a character that came to life or some witty dialogue. Unfortunately, I was not able to find ANYTHING likeable in this book. It was very BORING. Flat boring characters! Weak plot/climax. The writing did not flow, so on a few occasions I had to re-read a paragraph to make sense of it. It's my opinion that the author lack imagination when writing this book. :(

Love it, love it, love it. A fitting ending to a very enjoyable series. You don't need to read the other three books to enjoy this story, but I like to see the continuation of the family relationship.
