The Duke’s Wicked Wife by Elizabeth Bight is an Adult Historical Romance out now!
*Disclaimer: This book contains mature content and may not be suitable for younger readers*
“Sebastian Sinclair, the Duke of Wessex, is not in love with Eliza Benton—nor anyone else, for that matter. But he must marry and produce an heir, and love is not required for either. His future duchess must be of high birth and good nature, a lady unlikely to snipe at him over breakfast. In short, the complete opposite of Eliza. So who better to help him find a bride?
Eliza Benton is not in love with the Duke of Wessex. He’s infuriating, arrogant, and an ass of the first order. Not that she has any intention of marrying anyone now that her secret dream is on the cusp of becoming reality. A husband would ruin all her careful plans. But she’s all for finding her nemesis the perfect bride, anything to get him from underfoot so she can focus on her writing.
Thank goodness Sebastian and Eliza aren’t in love. That would be disastrous.”
I wasn’t a huge fan of this one.
While I did make it to the end, when I finally finished the last page, I didn’t feel impressed by the story. It was entertaining and featured a more typical historical romance vibe, but nothing wowed me throughout the book.
I wasn’t a huge fan of his character. I don’t know if I was just in a mood while reading or if he wasn’t truly standing out for me, but he wasn’t making the cut.
I ended up giving this one a 2 out of 5 stars. I really hoped I would become absorbed into this genre because I’ve been in such a mood for it, but unfortunately the writing didn’t live up to my expectations.
