The Ugly Duchess

The Ugly Duchess - Eloisa James Though I like love stories based on Friendship turning to love, this book wasn't really my cup of tea. For one, I did not like James at all. I would have overlooked the fact that he had married Theo for her money under his father's pressure because he was merely young boy back then. But went on to sleep with various other women after Theo had him thrown out and justifying it by saying that Theo had said that the marriage was over!! I absolutely hated it as I felt that James shouldn't have returned so late - it was almost like he went out, enjoyed his life and came back only when he had his fill!! Also, why the hell did Theo agree to take him back? Nope... the plot wasn't really my cup of tea. But I did like Ms.James style of storytelling!
