My biggest problem with this book and the others in this series is that there are too many other storylines going on at the same time. I didn't feel as if this was Bea and Stephen's book. It felt as if they were just one of many stories going on. I don't mind multiple storylines but feel that the couple advertised on the book should have a primary role. It was a good read but definitely not great. I am finding that I much prefer Julia Quinn, Mary Balogh and Lisa Kleypas over Ms. James.

This story of three lady friends, other books in the series, Your Wicked Ways and Fool for love. All steamy and great romp plus Ms. James is a witty writer.

This is the third book in the Duchess Series series. Anyone who likes Eloisa James will love this book. Scandalous Beatrix Lennox falls in love with uptight and upright Stephen Fairfax-Lacy. She is definitely not what he is looking for, but of course she is perfect for him.

This book is great. I read it in one afternoon, I just couldn't put it down. Lady Bea is such a delightful character and as you read her story, you can't help but relate to her. Stephen is such a delightful man. The way he shows her that she is not "unmarriageable" and that she is in fact a beautiful desire. What a great journey! I love Eloisa James and she doesn't disappoint with this one!

Wonderful continuation of The Duchess Quartet (book 3 in the series). Reading Eloisa James makes me feel like I am living in regency England.

This was the first Eloisa James book I ever read and I realized quickly it was in the middle of a series. I had a hard time picking up on where it was going because I hadn't read the previous books. That said, while it was unique for me as a reader to have several plots going on at once, it was distracting because I had no point of reference. I couldn't even tell you who the main hero and heroine were in this story. What I did like was the house party setting in the country. The dialogue was witty and the story itself was well-written. It was just too busy for me as a whole.

It is whispered behind the fans of Londons dowagers and in the corners of fashionable ballrooms that scandal follows willfully wild Lady Beatrix Lennox wherever she goes. Three years before, the debutante created a sensation by being found in a distinctly compromising position. Now the ton has branded her as unmarriageable, her family has called her a vixon and beatrix see no reason not to go after who and what she wants. And she wants Stephen Fairfax-Lacy, the earl of Spade. Beatrix couldn't be more different than the grooms future ideal of a bride. Yet she brings a wildness in to the earl he tries to deny. But he's not about to play love's game by her rules. She may be used to being on to in affairs of the heart but this time things will change.
