Eloisa James’ My American Duchess 

The American Duchess by Eloisa James was a fun and interesting story of true love versus infatuation. As young women (and men) we often confuse attractive for something more. I’ve seen this in my life and the life of my children. I’ve said that I was in love with love. Merry Pelford desires a love like her parents had but because they died when she was very young she had no idea of how to achieve this allusive dream. 
Already notorious for breaking two betrothals, some speculate she is nothing but a flirt but their are those who suspect she’s a little more. The Duke of Trent is determined to have her for her forthright personally he wants nothing to do with love. Merry can’t allow herself to fall for the Duke because she’s already engaged. 
In true Eloisa James fashion, love conquers all even for a flighty American and a stoic Duke. The twists of this story turns what you might expect on its head and gives it a shake. This truly remarkable story of a run away bride and the beauty of friendship and honor will have you laughing, crying and falling in love! 


I write suspense with a hot romance and a southern accent. I like strong characters with attitude and charm. Heroines who can rescue themselves and heroes who aren't afraid to love them.
