    Adeuate The only thing the heroine May had going for her was her beauty She was crass mouthy and irreverent in no way suited to be a duchess I could not suspend belief enough to buy that the hero William duke of Radcliffe would ever make someone his polar opposite his wife Their relationship building was primarily constant bickering their ro

Ely distraction but now she can’t wait for her father’s return so she can leave this country its suffocating rules and one infuriatingly proper nobleman in particular behind Because he is the Duke of Radcliffe William Spencer’s whole life revolves around his duties He never steps foot outside the bounds of pro I knew I was clever in dubbing Erin Knightley a modern day Jane Austen and The Duke Can Go to the Devil was her Pride Prejudice William and May could not have been different and therefore of course could not stand each other May was a scandal waiting to happen and William was as pomp as they come But as they each began to set aside their pride HEE and prejudices HA May and William soon discover that there is much to one another that their aggrieved first impressions I m sorry I couldn t help it would have had them believeMay has been one of my favorite characters of this series from the very beginning so I had high hopes for her story And thankfully I was not disappointed and in fact had all my expectations exceeded tremendously May made for the most uniue heroine in the very best ways as I knew she would From her unconventional upbringing to her emboldened dresses that matched her flamboyant personality She drank spirits cursed like a sailor and was never afraid to speak her mind no matter the situation or person But being so outrageous in a place and era that was all about structure and following the status uo heavily grained on her May was also very stubborn and set in her outlook on life and it wasn t until she met William that she began to bend just a little Just enough to stop a moment and see things and people in a different perspectiveAs for William contrary to the kind of pampered self centered aristocrat May presumed him to be he was an exception in that he took his responsibilities as Duke very seriously which yes shockingly involved actual work and effort on his part And while yes he was on the starchy side and come on who doesn t love a good starchy hero he was in possession of the softest of hearts particularly where his young half siblings were concerned Not to say William wasn t difficult at times himself He was But like May and because of May William was able to take a step outside his black and white world and see that there was and could be to life than propriety and duty So in effect May and William made each other better people The fact that their banter was first rate and their attraction undeniable was just icing and cherries atop the most delectable of cakesI m so pleased with the way Erin Knightley s writing continues to enchant me This one definitely reminded me of why she s become one of my favorite authors I very much look forward to reading and presumably sobbing over Dering and Felicity s story nextPS Erin thank you so much for Radcliffe s wet Darcy moment I and I m sure May as well appreciated that particular visual very much indeed

Summary The Duke Can Go to the Devil Prelude to a Kiss #3

Per behavior and he expects the same of those around him With her devil may care ways May vexes him nearly as much as she tempts him but there’s something about her that he just can’t resist He knows he’s falling hard for her but with lives that are worlds apart will they ever be able to find any common ground Thank you to PENGUIN for providing a print copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewThe Duke Can Go to the Devil is the story of a well traveled woman who lands in England with a sharp tongue and the stuffy duke she can t seem to evade This book is the third in the series of which the only other book I have read is the second but it can be read as a standalone I do think though that the relationship between the heroines in this series is so enjoyable that it would be a shame to miss out on any of them For this reason I ll be going back to read the firstI ve been looking forward to this book since I read the previous book The Earl I Adore May was a catalyst in uniting the main characters in that one and I was hoping her antics would be plentiful in this one I was not disappointed As soon as May and William met sparks started flying And they never stopped May was not going to let society dictate her actions and since William gave in to the expectations of his title he could make neither heads nor tails of her Because of the rules he had set for himself he decided that the best course of action was to forget his run in with May altogether Unfortunately it couldn t be done and the he gets to know her the intrigued he is by her non traditional waysHeaven help him but she was gorgeous She was tempting than anyone he had ever known and much enticing He could scarcely recall what it was that had so exasperated him about her when they first met All those things he had thought he disliked her frankness her humor her ability to see him as a person instead of a duke had somehow become the things he most loved about herIt s when he realized how unimpressive she finds England that he decided it was time to step in and show her all his country had to offer He is incredibly proud of everything he has including his title and wealth and is baffled and frustrated when May seems unmoved by them This was one of my favorite things about their relationship William had always been accepted by everyone in society simply because of his title With May he had to open up in order to impress her and it was something that made him realize for the first time that who he was as a person and the title he held were two separate things For May the fact that William took his duty so seriously made her think about how brash she could be and while she didn t intend to hurt people s feelings it was often a result of her words They each made the other think of how they could be considerateIn his effort to show her how extraordinary England is he invites May and her aunt to accompany him to his estate under the guise of providing companionship to his step mother One thing that confused me here was that once they reached the estate May s Aunt Victoria all but disappeared While she hadn t been a huge part of the book before it was her insistence that May apologize to the duke for the way she May acted in their first interlude that brought them together again It s insinuated that Aunt Victoria spends a lot of time worrying about whether or not May will tarnish the family s reputation so I expected her to be watchful of May and to demand a report of any time spent with the duke While this isn t a huge issue I just found it a bit odd that she s not seen again until they re departing the estate I really enjoyed the pacing of this book The relationship between May and William was a slow build as they were interested in getting to know everything about each other and they had a few barriers to get through because of their first few meetings They have some heart warming moments while bonding over the loss of their parents and then spending time with William s younger brother and sister When they finally did realize their feelings for each other it wasn t a zippy love conuers all feel It was something they struggled with The duke had the same expectations of any woman that might become his duchess that he had of himself so he knew it would be a huge change inviting May to share his life And May knew there was no way to merge the two worlds travelling around the world and being in England with William so she was going to have to give up one of her dreams Their thoughtfulness was an accurate depiction of the characters we d come to know throughout the book There was no sex in this book and I am torn on how I feel about it On the one hand their kisses were so explosive I wanted On the other I think it was indicative of the time period and the duke s tendency to heed societal constraints that they didn tin that moment he saw with perfect clarity that what she was suited to was the role of his wife He William not the title he held For perhaps the first time in his life he could separate the two in his mind and see that he had needs and desires that were separate from the dukedom He possessed the title not the other way aroundOverall I thought this was an entertaining read with interesting characters If you re a fan of opposites attract and the enemies to lovers trope you ll enjoy The Duke Can Go to the Devil I m excited for the next one in the series This review was originally posted at Badass Book Reviews
