Taming of the Duke by Eloisa James
Dawa pointed out that when Imogen and Rafe are at Christobel’s performance, before Christobel actually performs, the innkeeper tells a patron to put his sword away. Love and adore him. Here was a heroine I could not only love, but relate to, as well. Imogen suddenly noticed that both Annabel and Josie were watching her. Great, light-hearted read touching on yaming deep, serious issues. In this novel, our unlikely hero dduke Rafe–the alcoholic, careless Duke of Holbrook.
The idea that Rafe could masquerade as his eloixa brother without Imogen immediately realizing the deception was something that I had to accept on faith because it was just too impossible to imagine it actually happening. Bitterness was like a poison.
And my favorite part in the story is when Imogen helps him while he’s going through a bit of withdrawal and washes his hair. I need to know how to attain a proposal of marriage, preferably within a few weeks of the season opening. The inhabitants of these novels have familiar problems and insecurities.

Imogen still has lingering doubts that Draven ever truly loved her, or was even really interested in her, and thus has insecurities at odds with her outward beauty and confidence. Sometimes I read a scene and I get that tingly feeling and I know it will stay with me forever. The other day I bought a delicious pink suit to tape a television segment on romance; I’ll never wear that suit to teach in, nor even to give a paper at the Shakespeare Association of America conference.
As some point I think it should have been brought out that she knew it was Rafe rather than close to the end of the story. I want to know when Imogen figured out it was Rafe and not Gabe.
As always horse racing and the strong sense of family the sisters share make these books so enjoyable. Why do I need a chaperone? I loved, loved, loved this book. Eloisa made up these gorgeous collectible cards for readers to celebrate the Essex Sisters.
Which makes them all horses on a merry-go-round Forever chasing but never catching. The biggest part of his costume seems to be the fake mustache he wears. So having a mustache hide who Rafe is was not so unbelievable for me. Twitter Facebook Tumblr Pinterest.
But the aspect which I liked more than any other perhaps excluding the herowas the incredible use of Shakespeare-inspired plots of love-in-disguise, partnerings getting mixed up and general confusion. But it wasn’t a bad book really, just not quite the type of book I love. Why should he have anything to I didn’t even know that there were two other books about the main characters sisters, and you really don’t have to know that to read this book.
The addressing of Rafe’s drinking. When I wrote about a miscarriage in Midnight PleasuresI used my own fears of premature birth; when the 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.
But she laughs at the idea that a lazy drunk of a man can do anything. That look has had you in trouble before.
And now that I patiently finished this book I can finally read Josie’s story! Often times, I though Imogen was too forward for a I’m of two opinions on this book.
I feel that Rafe is too good for her. So, either she is the most unobservant person on Earth who can’t tell the difference between two different people’s voices, or she is stupid.
Not to mention that I didn’t even see the love between the two characters grow.
Just a moment while we sign you in ths your Goodreads account. Some names are changed throughout the book. Perhaps by an arm, a leg, or some other…part of his anatomy? The heroine is a passionate, but soured widow, guilty for luring her deceased, arrogant husband into marriage, and embarrassed for the lack of passion in their short marriage.
Rafe, of course, disagrees. James never writes down to her readers, and I jamee walk away learning a little more about history and some new words! Why should he have anything to say what she is doing.
