Review: "A Duke of Her Own" by Eloisa James

I had not read any of Eloisa James' books prior to reading her newest Duchess book, A Duke of Her Own, this past week. If this book is an indication of James' other books - particularly her Duchess series - then I deserve a kick for not picking up her books before this. In A Duke of Her Own, Leopold Dautry, the Duke of Villiers, needs to marry - and marry nobly. Since his options only include daughters of dukes, he's limited in his choices - Eleanor, the beautiful and intelligent daughter of the Duke of Montague, or Lisette, the beautiful and free spirited daughter of the Duke of Gilner?

From what I gather reading this book and excerpts from previous Duchess books, Villiers is a notorious scoundrel who appears in each of the previous Duchess books. I hope all of the heroes in the other Duchess books are as delicious as Villiers. I can't wait to scoop up the rest of this series. My take:


  1. Hi Eva,
    greetings from another Eva! I found your name and was curious, and I think we like the same kind of books! I'm looking forward to visiting your blog. Rather many Eva around now, I use Eva S

  2. Hi Eva S!

    Thanks for visiting my blog (you're my first commenter!). *dancing around the room*

    Yes, I've been noticing that there are more Eva's out there as I comment on author blogs. I hadn't thought about adding the initial of my last name to differentiate myself. That's a good idea.

    I see you have a blog profile, but I couldn't figure out how to get to your blog from there. What's your blog address?
