Eloisa James' "The Ugly Duchess" - #4 in the Fairytales series

The Ugly Duchess - Eloisa James

Totally enjoyed it - character-based plots are always my fave, with lots of humour, some adventure, Regency fashions, emotion and angst thrown into the mix. I thought the 7-year separation was just right, because both of the main characters had a lot of growing up and emotional development to do, as well as establishing themselves in their livelihoods. Anything less would not have been credible to me, especially for the heroine.

Very well done - highly recommended.
