It was all a little confusing but hopefully all the books reached the right places in the end (less)

Sophie, the heroine was very clear to me - a misfit in a large family, with a love of painting and a big heart but always a sense of being out of place. The key line in this scene was when she tries to capture the escaping pug (called Marmaduke) and yells out ‘Heel, Duke!’ and though the pug doesn’t heed her, a real duke does. The Hero, the Duke of Harcourt, takes his title and its responsibilities very seriously and after a tragic past engagement he is determined that his wife will everything that is proper. Neither he nor Sophie considered each other as partners, despite the undeniable attraction between then, but when circumstance and an old rival force them into an engagement they struggle to come to terms with their new circumstances. There’s a light side to The Duke’s Unexpected Bride, but it is also a story about guilt and feeling helpless and realizing what you can, luckily, be very wrong about what you really need in life.(less)

I love London. Loved living in it and love visiting it. I can walk for hours and hours and not get tired. All I have to do is turn down an alleyway and a new story presents itself. It’s almost too layered, too full of history. That’s why I find great turning points in its history, like the Great Fire of 1666, riveting. Pretty much everyone has heard of the fire that destroyed most of what lay w... Read more of this blog post »

Topics Mentioning This Author

Margaret Cavendish
“I am not covetous, but as ambitious as ever any of my sex was, is, or can be; which makes, that though I cannot be Henry the Fifth, or Charles the Second, yet I endeavour to be Margaret the First; and although I have neither power, time, not occasion to conquer the world as Alexander and Caesar did; yet rather than not be mistress of one, since Fortune and Fates would give me none, I have made a world of my own; for which nobody, I hope, will blame me, since it is in everyone's power to do the like.”
Margaret Cavendish - Dutchess of Newcastle
