Gabe is enigmatic and intriguing, and Gillian is a calmer, more collected foil to the headstrong Imogen. I just thought that there was too much crammed in here that it didn’t allow the romance the space and time and quiet it needed to really grab me. But the way Imogen threw herself first at Maitland, then Ardmore, then Mayne and then Gabe just reeked of desperation.
Gabe’s Rafe’s illegitimate brother attitude of not being good enough for Gillian was heartbreaking at times, as was his devotion to his daughter. The whole ‘in disguise’ angle while clever, kind of muddled up the story for me. Yet her sisters love her and Imogene overcomes her anger and jealousy to return somewhat to the person she was before even though the readers rloisa had a glimpse of that in book The inhabitants of these novels have familiar problems and insecurities.
The Taming of the Duke — All About Romance
There was so much happening that Rafe and Imogen’s romance seemed to be resolved too quickly for my tastes. They never have any adequate rebuttal, and you can part on the best of terms. I start hating the plot, characters, everything. I watch Superman and have no problem believing that glasses are enough to hide his identity.
And all of them are present here. This one frustrated me. On one hand, I very much enjoyed Rafe.
The hero I loved, loved, loved this book. The gents and ladies decide to marry.
Taming of the Duke by Eloisa James
Often times, I though Imogen was too forward for a I’m of two opinions on this book. Rafe, of course, disagrees. The characters are all very human, so it works in a way it didn’t quite work out for me in the previous book in the series.
One of them Imogen was married briefly to a man she stole from t’other one Gillianbut the man taimng The responses were amazingly passionate, interesting and fun to read.
You don’t really need to read tamint 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. Sometimes I read a scene and I get that tingly feeling and I know it will stay with me forever.
There is a lot of rattling-on the noise of carriage wheels here, coming from somewhere offstage about sister Josie fat.
I thought he deserved so much better than Imogen. I just did not like how the author went about these two falling in love.
Before long, Rafe becomes determined to pursue Imogen—for his wife. It seems like they’re just friends.
I’m all for a woman making the first move and going after what she wants. And their guardian Rafe, the Duke of Holbrook, is hardly your garden variety duke.
The Taming of the Duke
I actually liked it a lot. I enjoyed meeting these fictional goddesses, but I certainly never recognized myself in them. The two star part of the book view spoiler [starts when he’s pretending to be his brother and he’s taken Imogene out, but their both in disguise so no one will recognize them.
When I wrote about a miscarriage in Midnight PleasuresI used my own fears of premature birth; when jaames little girl in Fool For Love threw up and threw up, I described my own daughter, who had that unsavory habit for well over her first year of life. Jun 20, Angela rated it liked it. We only made sex 7 times! While the epilogue assures readers that Rafe has been able to stick with his sobriety, I couldn’t help but feel apprehension during the story.
I couldn’t move during sex or he’d yell at me!
