FREE PDF ⚒ His Secret Duchess ♢

I don t know why I had such a hard time getting through this one It was pretty good but I just never became immersed in it like I have with so many other books The storyline was good and there were several exciting scenes so I have no excuse If anything it was a bit drawn out and some events were dragged out But, nevertheless, it was a good read I enjoyed the characters They were flawed and fascinating.

Sometimes I really dislike GR, another review gone 3.5 StarsI liked this book, you have long lost lovers reuniting, families becoming whole, a mad man who get s off on hurting people, revenge, attempted murder Mary and Nick haven t seen each other since the afternoon Nick had to go off to battle They laid together for the first time, the same afternoon privately vow themselves to each other in an old church, the register signed in his blood With child and not hearing word from Nick, Mary goes to a family offering her child, she lives as the child governess Many years later Nick, or should I say the Duke of Vail, hears a story about a Mary Winters who is on trial and with out protection, off he runs to save her There is plenty to be said between those two, why there was no word and contact And that they have a child together A child Mary will do anything to get back from the mad man who has taken him to be his own.I had a longer better review wrote but I am grumpy now and I really didn t want write it all again As I can t recall how exactly how it all was. sigh, I think she forgave him too easily view spoiler she wed Nick Stanton secretly Nick went to war, was seriously wounded, when his father and elder brother went to take him home, their ship sank and they died, Nick became the Duke of Vail She had become pregnant, gave the info to the old duke to give to Nick and went into hiding, that info perished with the old duke Nick thought she no longer wanted him because he was wounded She thought he had second thoughts on their relationship, it was only when she was framed for murder and her son kidnapped that he stepped up to claim them hide spoiler Hero and heroine are desperately in love and pledge to each other in a secret ceremony just before the hero goes off to battle He returns injured and believes she no longer does or will love him not knowing that she had his son and had to give him up to a couple He only finds out about her again when she s accused of attempting to murder the man who has been raising their son There s a lot of drama in this that is very page turning There is an attempted rape scene that I skimmed ahead to make sure it didn t actually happen and to my relief, it doesn t, but it went farther than I d expected. 3 stelline Alcune cose belle, altre meno.Storia tutto sommato originale e diversa ma non ho capito i due.Innamoratissimi entrambi, eppure non si sono davvero cercati, seppure stavano a quaranta miglia di distanza Lei non aveva cambiato nome , lui neppure ed ha sempre abitato nello stesso luogo Lui aveva denaro infinito per smuovere frotte di investigatori, lei poteva farsi un viaggetto, farsi annunciare e dirgliene quattro L Orgoglio L incomprensione Orgoglio e incomprensione vanno a farsi benedire se tuo figlio rischia la fame e la frusta.Seconda parte surreale, con l autrice che vuol tastare il registro spy storySorvolo sulle ragioni fisiche della ritrosia di lui Sei anni di tentennamenti e basta un capitolo per riportare il sole. Not sure if I m still suffering from the aftershocks of the book I read Stormfire prior to this 1, but it seems to me, HSD took 4ever beyond to get going This is only my 3rd GW Unfortunately, I had to slog thru this 1, the story progresses in such a dilatory manner that I was also watching E Reality shows THS in between LOL The super thin plot gets stretched w repetitive phrases over descriptive inner dialogues, facial expressions struggle in hunting down the missing child It doesn t feel like a true romance, it slike a Without a trace episode, w not so thrilling end results For a hero who s portrayed as a courageous, brilliant, legendary, highly regarded war tactician vet a Colonel, no less , he doesn t seem to have what it takes cuz he s always 1 or 2 steps behind the disgusting, oily, cunning villain Nick s overconfident, hence initially he underestimates his opponent, not anticipating that the villain has a trump card up his sleeve His empty threats to ruin the villain force him to release the custody of the child, backfire on him He keeps making unfulfilled promises to heroine that the child will be returned He gets shot in the chest while rescuing the TSTL heroine barging in literally the last 2nd on the near rape scene His interminable near death experience convalescence the villain s home are unnecessary fillers When he goes after the runaway villain the 2nd time, he gets whacked in the arm while clinging precariously to the boat almost gets his arm broken The big secret of why he was not able to come to heroine when she needed him the most, is deferred again again Reading Make him tell U the truth after the umpteenth time gets tired I get it His gigantic ball of secret won t be painstakingly unfurled till my eyelids start to droop Not too endearing either that he keeps referring to Richard as Your son , not Our son He s 1 of the blandest tortured heroes I ve ever encountered in my misfortune I didn t witness any hidden depths all.The dim bulb heroine is another pill to swallow She s embittered by what she perceived as hero s betrayal when she was preggers , ungrateful, impatient, incomprehensible to me She s willing to barter herself for Richard, her kid, w out telling the hero what her intentions are She goes back to the villain, the same 1 who tried to rape prosecute her w filthy lies which put her in jail for 3 months on grounds of attempted murder Did she learn her valuable lesson Nope, she irrationally deduces that if she sells her body to the villain, the kid will be returned safe sound to the hero Get real She s in such denial that she runs to the boy s room, instead of outta the villain s house, therefore getting herself cornered we re treated to a stomach churning scene where the villain can only get himself excited by inflicting pain the heroine had prior knowledge of the villain s perversity, after MANY years of caring for the villain s much abused late wife She s the epitome of the light is there, but there s noone home D Instead of consulting the hero on what steps to take in retrieving their son, she digs her own grave not even equipped w a catapult by bargaining w the revenge driven creep This chick has major trust issues due to hero s abandonment yrs ago Gag me plz.I thought the reunited luvbirds was a promising premise Li l did I know that the luv story would unfold a snail s pace What a downer, it s a done deal that they ve been in luv thru long years of separation, after 1 hasty coupling before rejoining the war Sadly, their mission impossible overshadows the romance Their screen time dialogue are so limited When the hero is felled again by the villain in their final combat, I was like, geez, what a wimpy limpy hero the poor bloke just can t catch a break, the creep gets his comeuppance from a 4 legged animal BTW Methinks the TSTL H H deserve 1 another.
