About this ebook

The Duke of Huntington has no interest in an eccentric redhead who frowns at him over her spectacles…until he realizes that she is the only possible duchess for him. A new enemies-to-lovers romance by New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James.

Bespeckled and freckled, Lady Stella Corsham at least has a dowry that has attracted a crowd of fortune-hunting suitors—which definitely doesn’t include the sinfully handsome Silvester Parnell, Duke of Huntington, who laughingly calls her “Specs” as he chases after elegant rivals.

And then—

The worst happens. Marriage.

To the duke. To a man marrying her for all the wrong reasons.

How can Silvester possibly convince Stella that he’s fallen in love with the quirky woman he married?

This book was a pure delight. I absolutely adored Stella and I felt a deep kinship with her. Silvester, if I'm honest was sometimes a challenge, especially in the beginning but as you dig deeper and learn more, he truly becomes much more likable. I really liked these two as a couple. Maybe it was simply my foolish romantic heart that still endlessly yearns for that girl who just doesn't fit societal norms to not only capture the hot guy's eye but win his heart.

I absolutely love the female main character! Stella constantly hears how she should act during her debut season. However, her cleverness and knowledge can’t be contained. On top of that, it’s vital that she wears her spectacles, she has freckles, and her curvy body is supposedly not in fashion. She doesn’t let anything keep her down for too long. She doesn’t give a fig about the charming Silvester’s ducal title.

This is one of my favorite authors but.... this one not for me. I would have liked for Silvester to know what it felt like having her ogle a hot man while he stood by helpless. This one made women appear helpless to their feelings.
