This was the first time I read something by Eloisa James and I don't know what I was expecting exactly, but definitely not such a different historical romance from the ones I usually read. I mean it in a good way, no worries!
Despite Gina being the main heroine of the story, I gladly appreciated that the book pays proper attention to the other duchesses as well. Reading about a group of married women with all unhappy marriages for different reasons was kinda refreshing. The society they live in intrigued me and although I live in the modern era, I could see some things never change. Sigh. I can't really say I grew quite fond of every character (male and female), for instance I couldn't stand Sebastian at all. Cam, on the other hand... er, let's just say he could sculpt me whenever he pleases... I admit I found a couple of scenes with him and Gina a bit confusing, but the reading always kept me going thanks to the flirty writing style so kindly used by Eloisa James.
Lots of sexual tension, strong attractions that turn in an inevitable and almost desperate lust, a bit of mystery, a few laughs and, of course, love. What else can The Duchess Quartet reserve? I don't know about you, but I will surely keep reading the series!
