  • Smart, funny, emotional, and a little steamy

    The Duke of Ashmont has been living a dissipated life of pleasure, and it's starting to catch up with him. His fiancée jilted him, his best friend nearly killed him in a duel, and now he's facing the ire of Cassandra, Prophet of Doom. Cassandra remembers Ashmont as the boy who watched the stars with her when she was ten. But he's grown into a notorious rakehell, and she has no patience for his drunken antics. After he causes a carriage accident that nearly kills her tiger, she insists he help her with some of the tiger's duties. Feeling guilty and unrooted, Ashmont complies. Gradually, they reach a fragile peace—until scandal threatens to destroy their happiness. I love Taming of the Shrew stories, and this is among the best I've read. It's smart, funny, outrageous, emotional, and a little steamy. Don't miss it! Thanks, NetGalley, for the ARC I received.

  • Lots of fun in this intelligent, witty romance!

    As one can guess from the title, this book freely borrows from Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew with a good bit of Austen's Bennet family as well. I adore Cassandra, a woman born too soon, who knows her own mind and isn't the least bit shy about demonstrating that fact. A few days after losing his fiancée to his best friend (Book 1), Lucius is deep in his cups when he unwittingly causes an accident with serious consequences for Cassandra and her staff. In a moment of clarity and responsibility, he offers to marry her to fix most of the damage he has caused. It's more complicated than I can convey without spoilers, but suffice it to say that a marriage to the duke would also solve Cassandra's problem with her father. Ah, but nothing worthwhile is ever going to be that easy. Lucius and Cassandra have everything going for them and everything stacked against them all at the same time. They find their way to a truce of sorts, but when hearts start getting involved it all becomes increasingly complicated. I loved every deliciously witty interaction between these two, especially the way they challenged each other and -- eventually -- brought out the best in each other. Their HEA was very sweet and satisfying, and the scene with her mother and the woman she's known for forty years was brilliantly satisfying in its own way. I highly recommend this romance to anyone who enjoys historical rom-coms. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

  • 5 things I love about this book

    I received an ARC of this book to read through Edelweiss+. All opinions are my own. Ten Things I Hate About the Duke by Loretta Chase is the second book in her engaging Difficult Dukes series. This book begins as the first book ends, and so I do feel that you should read them in order, to get a good understanding of the hero of this book Lucius Wilmot Beckingham, Duke of Ashmont. I adored everything about this book, Cassandra Pomfret is a wonderful heroine, smart, sassy, sure of her worth and someone you’d want for your best friend. Lucius has reached a turning point in his life, and he’s not quite sure how to manage it when meeting Cassandra again offers him a purpose and a chance to become the person she always thought he could be. I love that he listens to her and takes the time to understand what it is she is telling him. With nods to both The Taming of the Shrew and my favourite movie, Ten Things I Hate About You, I enjoyed reading this book immensely and highly recommend it. Steam Level: Medium.

  • 4 Stars!!

    4 Stars!! This is book 2 in the ‘Difficult Dukes’ series. I didn’t get to read book 1 first but I understood pretty much everything, so it can be read as a standalone! An intelligent bluestocking that try’s to help others and if not for the fact that she’s a woman, would do even more good, and an arrogant Duke that’s done nothing but pranks, drinking or whatever HE wants his whole life, wasting all of his opportunities to do good for others. I loved how the main female character, Cassandra, didn’t let the main male, the Duke of Ashmont, get away with anything, or any other man for that matter! If it’s one thing I hate in a book, it’s a weak female! I’d have hated to be a woman back then, as I’m NOT a quite, dutiful little lady! This book had me entertained and I read it pretty fast! I’d definitely recommend this book! I can’t wait for the other books in this series. *I am voluntarily leaving a review for an ARC that was provided to me by NetGalley!*
