The Captain’s Bluestocking Mistress (The Dukes of War #2)


23522332[1]By Erica Ridley

Captain Xavier Grey’s body is back amongst the Beau Monde, but his mind cannot break free from the horrors of war. His friends try to help him find peace. He knows he doesn’t deserve it. Just like he doesn’t deserve the attentions of the sultry bluestocking intent on seducing him into bed…

Spinster Jane Downing wants off the shelf and into the arms of a hot-blooded man. Specifically, the dark and dangerous Captain Grey. She may not be destined to be his wife, but nothing will stop her from being his mistress. She could quote classical Greek by the age of four. How hard can it be to learn the language of love?

My review:

The second book (third if you count the introduction novella) in the Dukes of War series is luckily way better than the first one. I enjoyed the introduction novella, but didn’t enjoy “The Earl’s Defiant Wallflower” at all. The flow of this book was better, the story more engaging and last but not least how can anybody not adore Jane!
