Loving this!

When the Duke Was Wicked - Lorraine Heath

There is nothing that bothers me about this book. Love the characters. Love the relationships. Love. Love. Love.


The main character, Grace, is absolutely delightful. She is just genuinely sweet and nice, and so utterly rational. I adore her.


This is Grace, thinking about her problems finding a man to marry:


"...she supposed it wasn’t truly a serious problem. No one would go hungry, be without shelter, or die because of her choice. And if she didn’t choose, her parents weren’t likely to disown her. She supposed she could live very happily without a husband, but it was the absence of love that was troubling. As far as she knew, no one had ever been madly, deeply, passionately in love with her. She believed that a woman should experience the mad rush of unbridled passion at least once in her lifetime. Was she being greedy to want it permanently?"
