SPOILERS AHEAD

In the current climate of #me too, I found the plot line of this book particularly disturbing. Psychologically abused woman in a position of no power (aka Duke’s mistress, with HIS two children, abandoned by her family as a fallen woman), is exploited by another man (because he can and apparently because she enjoys sex). When she gets out of this dreadful situation he gets it all mansplained to him by another man and rescues her from her choices in life. Wow, historical romance has got very dark recently or have the authors run out of plots.

I was so excited for this book but unfortunately, this series has been somewhat disappointing and I'm afraid I'm getting a little bored of HR's typical tropes and plots. Hoyt tried hard to convince me to stay engaged, providing me with not one but two adorable dogs, but I've read it all before and I've met these characters before in other books and it didn't really give me a new insight into the characters etc.

The next and final book of the series is predicted to be a dud judging by the blurb and I'll only be reading it to finish the series. I'll be very surprised if it proves me wrong.
