Desperate Duchesses
by Eloisa James




Overview -

Welcome to a world of reckless sensuality and glittering sophistication . . . of dangerously handsome gentlemen and young ladies longing to gain a title . . . of games played for high stakes, including--on occasion--a lady's virtue.

A marquess's sheltered only daughter, Lady Roberta St. Giles falls in love with a man she glimpses across a crowded ballroom: a duke, a game player of consummate skill, a notorious rakehell who shows no interest in marriage--until he lays eyes on Roberta.

Yet the Earl of Gryffyn knows too well that the price required to gain a coronet is often too high. Damon Reeve, the earl, is determined to protect the exquisite Roberta from chasing after the wrong destiny.

Can Damon entice her into a high-stakes game of his own, even if his heart is likely to be lost in the venture?

Bringing to light the Georgian era in all its sly and earthy cleverness is Desperate Duchess by the always masterful Eloisa James. Lady Roberta St. Giles has endured a lifetime of living in the country with her eccentric poet of a father and his many scandalous mistresses. At a country dance, she spies the devastatingly handsome Duke of Villiers, known to be quite the rake, and it's love at first sight. Roberta is not a woman to stand by and wait for life to happen to her. She finagles a letter from her very wealthy father and heads to London to find a mentor in her mother's cousin, seven times removed (or so). There ensues a lively comedy of manners wherein no one is in love with the person they should be, and the shifting landscape is the backdrop for a dazzling and vividly intelligent romp.

Barbara Samuel writes women's fiction, romances and many other things, including a blog at awriterafoot.com.
