Once upon a time…
A duke fell in love
Gowan Stoughton of Craigievar, Duke of Kinross, values order and self-control above all else. So when he meets a lady as serene as she is beautiful, he promptly asks for her hand in marriage.
With a lady
Edie—whose passionate temperament is the opposite of serene—had such a high fever at her own debut ball that she didn’t notice anyone, not even the notoriously elusive Duke of Kinross. When her father accepts his offer… she panics.
And when their marriage night isn’t all it could be, she pretends.
In a tower.
But Edie’s inability to hide her feelings makes pretending impossible, and when their marriage implodes, she retreats to a tower—locking Gowan out.
Now Gowan faces his greatest challenge. Neither commands nor reason work with his spirited young bride. How can he convince her to give him the keys to the tower…
When she already has the keys to his heart?
Couldn't put it down!!
Excellent!! I laughed. I cried. I love this book!
Great characters, even the butler...
My first book by Eloisa and I'm officially a fan. The characters are witty and the conversations were fun. It dragged a little bit in the end and the I think it was because she was trying to write in the title. All the same. A great read.
When Rupenzel meets Romeo
I loved this book. It is the best of Eloisa's so far. It is a laugh out loud, touching book that hits all the right notes of the emotional heart strings! This book is one of my favorite of all time! It will be on my reading pile for a long, long, time.
