The Woman

Lady Henrietta Maclellan longs for the romantic swirl of a London season. But as a rusticating country maiden, she has always kept her sensuous nature firmly under wraps -- until she meets Simon Darby. Simon makes her want to whisper promises late at night, exchange kisses on a balcony, receive illicit love notes. So Henrietta lets her imagination soar and writes...

The Letter

A very steamy love letter that becomes shockingly public. Everyone supposes that he has written it to her, but the truth hardly matters in the face of the scandal to come if they don't marry at once. But nothing has quite prepared Henrietta for the pure sensuality of...

The Man

Simon has vowed he will never turn himself into a fool over a woman. So, while debutantes swoon as he disdainfully strides past the lovely ladies of the ton, he ignores them all...until Henrietta. Could it be possible that he has been the foolish one all along?

    " This was a good, romantic, English dukes and duchess, sex kind of book. Mindless but entertaining reading "

    " like her books, this was no exception "

    " i like these women... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 1/3/2014

    " "For me this was a big step up from Duchess in Love, the previous book in this series. Henrietta is an endearing character; sensible (with the odd exception!) and believably oblivious to her own attractiveness. Darby is an interesting hero; superficially a 'fribble', there is a lot more to him than most people realise. I enjoyed the course of their romance, despite being able to spot some twists a mile off. James handles the main conceit of the novel well, avoiding the often irritating (to me) Big Misunderstanding. She picks up the story of Esme Rawlings (from Duchess in Love and also Darby's aunt) and balances that plot with the main romance very well. Not my absolute favourite of James' novels, but a really enjoyable read nonethless." "

    " Limp (heroine) and laces (hero). Otherwise, forgettable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becca | 12/15/2013

    " One of Eloisa's finest replete with her well-drawn characters and mad-cap fun romance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 WiLoveBooks | 12/2/2013

    " This series is best read in order due to the sub-plots with secondary characters that run through the series. I am listening to the audiobooks and Justine Eyre is perfect for these. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cami | 11/12/2013

    " Note to self: stop reading Eloisa James!! I finished this a while ago, and even with the help of the book's synopsis, I don't remember the plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana | 10/20/2013

    " I liked the fact that the heroine, although beautiful, is known for her honesty and common sense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 7/24/2013

    " Good, but some wacky plot twists were a little too implausible for my taste "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Addicted2Luv | 5/10/2013

    " This was a sweet love story with a nice amount of angst. The only thing, I would have rather the author have spent a little less time on the secondary characters and more time on putting in more love scenes. I kept wanting a little more spice. "

    " I loved this book. The characters were well-defined, not too much of the children in the storyline, good sense of time/place and secondary storyline was enjoyable as well. I didn't read the first book in this series so may read it. Would recommend this book to anyone looking for a quality read. "

About the Author
Author Eloisa James

Eloisa James, a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, wrote her first novel after graduating from Harvard, but alas, it was rejected by every possible publisher. After she got an MPhil from Oxford, a PhD from Yale, and a job as a Shakespeare professor, she tried again, with much greater success. In 2013 she won a RITA Award for Best Romance Novella. She teaches Shakespeare in the English department at Fordham University in New York. She is the mother of two children and, in a particularly delicious irony for a romance writer, is married to a genuine Italian knight.
