Duchess in Love | [Eloisa James]

Duchess in Love

Gina was forced into marriage with the Duke of Girton at an age when she'd have been better off in a schoolroom than a ballroom. Directly after the ceremony, her handsome spouse promptly fled to the continent, leaving the marriage unconsummated and Gina quite indignant. Now, she is one of the most well-known ladies in London... living on the edge of scandal - desired by many men, but resisting giving herself to any one. Finally, Camden, the Duke of Girton, has returned home, to discover that his naÏve bride has blossomed into the toast of the town.

    "Fun and entertaining listen!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, because it was enjoyable and anyone who likes this genre will find it entertaining.


    What about Justine Eyre’s performance did you like?

    She has a lovely voice, she brings personality to each character and has appropriate inflections in her voice that accurately reflect the characters feelings. There are narrators I just can't stand, but this voice I could listen to all day.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I don't do much sitting. But I am lucky enough to work at home and when I work outside the home can take my ipod. So I did listen to this consistently and only turned it off to sleep.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't expect an earth shattering story line, it's fun and light hearted with characters that are flawed but undoubtedly likable.

    "THREE FRIENDS WITH MARRIAGE PROBLEMS BUT..."

    They're not the 'usual' type for those days they are funny and outspoken with each other and they've got plans on their marriages. It was a romantic, light, humorous, easy going romance with very likeable characters.

    Worth a credit? Yes, and if you like EJ's books then you're gonna think so too, as for me she's an automatic download.

    Story
    "Delightful Romance Weaving Conplex Web of Partners"

    Though this is primarily the story of Gina and Camden, who were forced to marry when Gina was 11, it is actually a light bit of "musical chairs" where husbands and wives who have abandoned each other come together and then break apart and then...find each other in different ways. Gina has spent her time becoming the gracious Duchess of Girton, while Cam has been sculpting nude statues in Greece. He comes home to England to annul the marriage, but of course it gets complicated. The love scenes between Duke and Duchess are particularly enjoyable for the way that Cam brings out the "wicked" side of the Duchess's personality. Meanwhile Gina's two close friends are pursuing complexities of their own between husbands and lovers. A delightful read.

    I'm a librarian, knitter, crochetter... I love audiobooks because I can knit and "read" at the same time.

    Story
    "Simple, romantic and makes you feel all right..."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it is very well written and romantic, as all her books are.


    What did you like best about this story?

    When you just want to lose yourself in a story, in a simple, romantic story - that you know that everything is gonna be all right in the end, and is well written... What else could you ask for?


    Have you listened to any of Justine Eyre’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Well, I probably have, but in the moment I don't remember if I liked or not. I liked this one. I just fix in the memory the narrators that I REALLY like and those that I REALLY don't like. The in between, sometimes I remember, sometimes I don't.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Well, I stopped to listen and to read other books - but I am a multitasker - so I can not say that. So it doesn't mean anything. It's a very good book.


    Any additional comments?

    The Fairy Tale series is very good. In fact, until this moment I prefer those books to this, but I only read the first one, so it is not fair to compair...

    "This was just okay."

    This book was just okay. It was too long and wordy. There were about 3 stories being told in one book. There was nothing exciting, nor were there any omg moments.. I thought the ending was drab.

    Credit worthy? not really, it was pretty much a waste of time compared some stories. I struggled to get through this long story.

    The narrator did a fine job. Justine Eyre so you know what your going to get listening to her narrations.

    "Girlfriends"

    The characters are pretty fun, the narrator is wonderful. The women are by and large good people with messed up decisions or circumstances. But you know, they're all fairly likeable and it's fun to hear how they get in and out of trouble. While predictable it's still a fun book to listen to.

    "Dull and dumb"

    I like historical romances and really do not expect a lot of plot to them. But this book is just a dull story of silly women manipulating the men in their lives. Save your time and credit and skip this one.

    Story
    "Crazy Love"
    If you could sum up Duchess in Love in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, gripping and delightful


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Duchess in Love?

    When Emis husband died in her room the first and only night she slept with him in hopes to have a legitimate heir. OMG it was a laugh out loud moment, even though I felt bad for the poor man... The circumstances leading up to the events, were too funny...


    Have you listened to any of Justine Eyre’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She is pretty good. I enjoy her.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Carola confessed her love to Topey.


    Any additional comments?

    The "Man of Business" was assigned a tough task. He deserved a raised after the painfully embarrassing situation in which he found himself. The HOT Bath was definitely a good choice. The love scenes were mild but nice. The lack of Steamy love scenes did not diminish my enjoyment. But, I did miss them.
