Sarah MacLean's The Day of The Duchess (Scandal & Scoundrel, Book III) is here and waiting for your undying love and attention. Not a hard order to fill. What's not to love with the perfect ingredients:
- A perfectly matched duke and duchess whose lives are ripped apart by their fear and vulnerabilities, limiting conventions of the time, and heartbreaking tragedy. They push each other's buttons and test each other's limits with such wonderful intensity that the pacing never flags. MacLean makes it pretty difficult to put down this book for the quick break.
- A battle of wills that mirrors a political campaign, for better or worse, is awesome to read/watch play out. There is no wilting heroine who lacks a spine. There is no grim lord of the manor shaking sense into his woman. Intelligence and gut instinct are what's relied upon, along with a good dose of emotional appeal to let us know that they are flawed but beautiful as ever.
- A love story that never stops being about winning the heart of the other. At the end of the day, regardless of the time period, it's a romance and what a beautiful journey it is with its worthy hero and heroine to make it memorable and have us cheering to the sweet (grab the hanky) end.
