“That was why they called it temptation—it never presented itself as something ugly, or tepid, or harmless; no, it came in the guise of glorious feelings and a sense of utter rightness, even when it was wrong. That was why one needed principles.”

A sassy spirited story that I enjoyed immensely.
Between an aristocrat falling for a commoner, the rich treating marriage as a business transaction, and women getting the shaft over men, it was giving me Downton Abbey vibes (which I had just started watching when I dove into this book).
I recommended Bringing Down the Duke to my friend which started a domino effect of recommendations: myself referring to a friend, who we both referred to another friend, and all three of us referring to you…
Here is what one of my friend’s had to say about the book. It was a perfect summation and needed to be shared:
“I loved the strong, feminist feel of this book. Annabelle is a survivor and a woman ahead of her time- though it should always be her time. She brings a fierceness and sense of principal that is unmatched. Except perhaps by the utterly masculine (yet still insightful) sexiness of the Duke.“
