Sheila's Reads

I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.

TAKEN BY THE DUKE by Jess Michaels

Taken By the Duke - Jess Michaels
  Christian, the Duke of Rothcastle, kidnaps the sister of the Earl of Windbury as revenge for the death of his sister. While his plan is to ruin her, he instead finds a woman of grace, beauty, and dignity. She does not act as he expects her to act. He falls in love with her and she with him, but what will happen when her brother finds them.

I liked Christian and Ava. Their families have been feuding for so long that no one knows the reason. Neither is what is expected of the enemy. Ava wants to end the feud and tries to show kindness to Christian. He doubts her sincerity but cannot doubt her actions. She disarms him at all turns. But he is not the only one with revenge in his heart. Others are also plotting to keep the feud alive.

The sex is hot. I like that Ava is not a priggish, simpering miss. She gives as good as she gets. I loved the lessons both teach each other.

I look forward to reading more of this series.
