    Inhaltsangabe

    USA Today best-selling author Loretta Chase continues her Difficult Dukes series with this delightful spin on Shakespeare's classic The Taming of the Shrew.

    This time, who’s taming whom....

    Cassandra Pomfret holds strong opinions she isn’t shy about voicing. But her extremely plain speaking has caused an uproar, and her exasperated father, hoping a husband will rein her in, has ruled that her beloved sister can’t marry until Cassandra does.

    Now, thanks to a certain wild-living nobleman, the last shreds of Cassandra’s reputation are about to disintegrate, taking her sister’s future and her family’s good name along with them. 

    The duke of Ashmont’s looks make women swoon. His character flaws are beyond counting. He’s lost a perfectly good bride through his own carelessness. He nearly killed one of his two best friends. Still, troublemaker that he is, he knows that damaging a lady’s good name isn’t sporting.

    The only way to right the wrong is to marry her...and hope she doesn’t smother him in his sleep on their wedding night.

    More than just a romance

    I liked the first book of the difficult dukes very much, because it was so funny and entertaining. Yet it was not very deep.
    This entry in the series was! Cassandra is fierce and intelligent. Lucius is not very smart, very drunk and not a paragon at the beginning.
    But he learns a lot and we with him about the struggle of women and poor people. The book cites Mary Wollstonecrafts work.
    The lovestory felt very sincere and heartwarming.
    I loved this book for the feelings it gave me and for the many thoughts I spend on it even after finishing it
    And god, I am so invested in the story of Aunt Julia and Uncle Frederic... I can't wait for the next book

    Entertaining tale with depth

    Loretta Chase is now on my list of default authors. This book is often hilarious, full of varied characters, and touches on some subjects that give historical context and depth. The situation of women and attitudes towards the poor make for a more interesting story without detracting at all from the entertainment value of what is essentially a lighthearted read. I thoroughly enjoyed the ways in which the heroine and her mother dealt with difficult situations - hope I learned a thing or two about clever tactics! I had the audio book and Kate Reading’s performance is superb. Her name as narrator will recommend any future audio book I consider.
