book ë The Once and Future Duchess Ì Sophia Nash A duchess in time saves a noble lineIn theory the Duke of Candover is the most eligible peer in the realm But in truth he has a deep aversion to the merest hint of marriage not to mention two botched engagements which have marked his jaded soul Now after a debauched bachelor party that causes public outcry the Prince Regen This was a fun read part of series involving a boatload of dukes and one duchess featured hereThe plotline reminds me of G Heyer's Bath Tangle with three couples mismatched but able to sort themselves out to be with their true loves in the end Here the obstacles arise from promises made feelings ignored bad timing and black out WTF did I do style inebriation The heroine is a duchess in her own right only 18 but in the cross hairs of a meddling Prince Regentfairy Godfather who is forcing the ducal 'entourage' of this series to sober up and settle down before the masses get so disgusted they revolt to overthrow the monarchy as in France There's also a ridiculously precocious 14 year bookworm cousin set up as the duchess' companion which clanked false to me but she served as the bracing omniscient brat in the plot and had some of the best lines throughoutIt was a fun read for an evening with a lot going on at all times and a big cast of characters suffering unreuited or misdirected love And this first taste definitely gave me a hankering for the other dukes' stories The writing was spritely and zipped right along too I enjoyed J uinn and T Dare in this style of story far but it's great to add another author to my TBR list yeahThat said I found Mr or Ms Malaprop's mediocre editing distracting For instance the remote unemotional duke is letting go and really kissing the forbidden duchess his eyes were stark against his bronzed face and filled with palatable need Tasty? Wrong but very funnyHis yearning would've been touching if it had been palpable A lot of near misses in language like that threw me or made me laugh at the wrong times Those things should have been corrected in the professional publishing process SN deserves better editing
