The Broken Duke by Jess Michaels
The Broken Duke by Jess Michaels is another wonderful Recency Romance. While, #3 in THE 1797 CLUB, it can be read as a stand alone.
As with all Ms. Michaels stories she manages to draw her readers into her stories with her characters, her descriptions and her emotional turmoil. The plot flows seamlessly, and is interesting, as well as intriguing. A story of passion, deception, betrayal, angst, murder, abuse, redemption, love and finding a HEA.
The H/H are a bit different as the heroine seems to portray two people, a bit confusing at first, but soon the reader totally understands her deception. The hero is vulernable, yet controlled. This was not my favorite of this series, thus far, but an enjoyable read, nevertheless. Something about the H/H was hard for me to connect with, at first.
Romance readers who enjoy a bit of mystery, steamy interactions, emotional turmoil and HEA, should enjoy THE BROKEN DUKE. I already anticipate the next book.
I received a complimentary copy, however, all opinions are my own.
