An American Duchess

Anges for a brief marriage to Sebastian Hazelton whose aristocratic British family sorely needs a benefactor Once in England her foolproof plan to wed inherit and divorce proves complicated than Zoe had anticipated Nigel Hazelton Duke of Langford and Sebastian's older brother is as austere and imposing as the family's ancestral estate Still reeling from the Great War. Well this book started out well and I was really enjoying itbut then the heroine made a stupid decision after already losing her first baby and proceeded to lose the second The doctor told her it could have happened even if she hadn t stupidly flown in her plane knowing she was pregnant and crashed This is 1922 and our heroine wants to be independent and her own woman but made stupid decisions She left her husband which I get because he wouldn t open up to her but running off to America flirting with other men and allowing an artist to paint her naked is not the best choice I just didn t like her She isn t the type of heroine I want to read about Other people may like it but it just didn t work for meOur hero has PTSD or as it was known then Shell Shock He was also very British and rigid This caused him to be her closed off to the heroine at times and then after the second miscarriage he closed up even and sold his wife s plane and car prompting his wife to leave It frustrated me to read this and didn t like where the author took the story in the end Also it felt like Nigel made all the compromises while Zoe acting rash and immature never had to change She was rewarded for her behavior by getting her husband backand changed to fit her with no compromise on her part The steam level is pretty low in this book FYI

Ehhhh This is really historical than romance There was SO MUCH bad stuff And all in a REALLY SHORT amount of time And really fixing it took a relatively short amount of time tooI don t know I don t know I think the book took on too much maybe There wasn t enough time to deal with everything it tried toAnd the beginning part happened too uickly too Like Zoe showing up and changing all their lives I do buy that I don t buy that it happened in what seemed to be a matter of days

    I read An American Duchess in two sittings and then I just spent a ridiculous amount of time managing my frustration with the book To be clear I didn't hate it I was just extremely disappointed I couldn't love it or even like it I really liked the first half of the book but the second half made my head ache The hero and heroine have a pretty solid conflict between them from the moment they meet but instead of truly resolving it in the secon
