Synopsis

“Eloisa James is extraordinary.”
 —Lisa Kleypas

In the capable hands of USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James, the fairy tales we loved as children take on vibrant—and sensuous—new life. With The Duke is Mine, the beloved author of A Kiss at Midnight and When Beauty Tamed the Beast gives the classic tale of the Princess and the Pea a delightfully romantic Regency spin. Fans of Victoria Alexander and Julia Quinn will simply adore this historical romance gem about a lady reluctantly betrothed to one duke but pursued by another; a tantalizing tale of love, lies, and one very uncomfortable mattress.

...James’s weakness for modern colloquialisms (e.g. “wardrobe malfunction”) mars this endearing tale.

The Duke is Mine is a romance novel a step above the norm. It's a pleasure to find a romance author who writes with wit, with obvious intelligence, and with humor.

Rupert’s resolution is less successful. Not only is it an easy way out, it also feels as if Ms. James knows she’s cheated somehow, and delves into excess as an apology to the character.

Readers can expect classic Jamesian high jinks, a heroine who will stay in your mind long after the last page is turned and secondary characters that positively jump off the pages.

I love the way she makes the stories uniquely hers, especially since she is one of the few authors who has the ability to constantly surprise me.
