Comments In the Bed of a Duke

  • Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession

    This book was okay. It wasn't great but it wasn't bad. I didn't really like Phillip. It bugged me that he didn't want to marry Charlotte. That he had sex with her and ruined her on purpose, but then he wanted to make her a mistress. Even after he fell in love with her and he knew he wouldn't be Duke anymore he still didn't ask her to marry him but was just going to use her as a mistress. That is super disrespectful and showed he had no honor. I did like Charlotte but I wish she would have marrie [...]

    A wonderful story. I really enjoyed it. It was refreshing to meet a pair of twins that were so unlike each other. That was different, original. Even the heroine wasn't annoying as they usually turn out to be. Charlotte was strong and did not cry or make a fuss at every single trifle. In fact, she actually took control of dire situations more than once. If I had any complaint it would be that they fell in love all too quickly for my tastes. There wasn't much development involved, especially consi [...]

  • Lorka

    The tension between the hero and heroine was so off for me. The book started off with them absolutely hating each other, which is fine but once they unknowingly got into the same traveling coach headed thru Scotland, the game changed. They go from glaring and ignoring each other and by page 37 it all went down the toilet for me. He asked her why she was traveling to Scotland, and she refused to answer him. His reaction? He figured that if he literally jumped across the carriage to land on her an [...]

    So you know those books you've already read, that you've forgotten you've read until you are about 1/3 or halfway through the actual book and you're sitting there thinking, "this seems so familiar" but it takes you another page or two to realize OHMYGOD. I'VE READ THIS ALREADY?Yes. This book was it. I like Cathy Maxwell, I really do but for the second time, this book didn't grab my attention (Hence the reason it took me all the way up until the fight in the middle to realize I have read it befor [...]

  • WhiskeyintheJar/Kyraryker

    Quite the beginning with Charlotte and Phillip meeting on the road to Scotland; a lot of intensity between these two characters right off the bat.I found myself secretly cheering on Charlotte's lack of "proper" manners toward Phillip the Duke (the American in me) .Oh yes Charlotte does my American heart proud when the MacKenna's want to attack Phillip. Charlotte takes one man out, and helps shoot another while she calmly tells Phillip to run "and this time don't diddle around" hahahaCrrraaazzzy [...]

    Love it! Love it! Great author! My favorite book of hers. Love the main characters! In 1807 London, Duke Phillip Maddox blames Charlotte Cameron for her sister, his fiancée, jilting him at their betrothal ball. However, he learns that his older twin brother Justin, who died in childbirth, actually is alive. He was kidnapped by Laird MacKenna and was raised in the Highlands. Philip needs to know the truth.------ Charlotte travels by coach in a storm to see MacKenna who she met when he introduced [...]

    I waited too long to review this book, so my comments will probably be sparse.Apparently, Charlotte and Phillip first tangle in a previous book, and it aids in believing their connection. I didn't know this when I read the book, but it makes sense. It did seem as though you were supposed to know what had happened between them. Some readers say that if you didn't read the other book, it really took away from Charlotte and Phillip's connection, but I didn't think it was a huge problem. I still bel [...]

  • Kesha

    What I liked most about the book was that the twin plot wasnt what I was expecting. I thought they were gonna kill the Duke, have his twin take his place and have him marry Charlotte because the real Duke compromised her. I figured that the real Duke would somehow not be killed, realize he loved Charlotte, and then go to England and claim her. In actuality, they werent identical twins so the Laird put them in a fight to the death because of some old as revenge against the twins father.In all oth [...]

  • Amanda

    This is a DNF. I didn't like the lack of build between the hero and heroine before they hopped into the sack. It was too soon in their relationship, and also, the characters weren't entering into an equal relationship. There were overtones of power and control, and not the consensual kind that are prevalent in other romances. I left off when there is a kidnapping brewing, and well, I don't really care what happens to the characters in this book or how the kidnappers are foiled. Therefore, it is [...]

    3 stars - London, 1807 / Adult Historical RomanceI didn't know it was a part of series. So, am I going to grab others? Well, that depends. Anyway, it was a nice plot and I especially liked the climatic scene (read the book if you want to know what scene is that. Not gonna tell, I'm very lazy at the moment to spoil the fun). I never liked insta-love but well, it's Romancelandia, what would you expect? Read on your own peril.

  • Hasnamezied

    Loved everything about this book. I enjoyed reading it. Philip is the kind of a guy who will always do whats right even if it wasnt in his own benefit. He is so much like Charlote and that why they are a perfect match. Also, who couldnt fall in love with twins ??? Justin and Philip are so much alike even though they didnt know about each other but recently.Great book.

  • Cs

    This book was a relief to find that the Duke of Colster, a jerk in the previous book, met his match and redeemed himself. Even though he was ruthless in many ways, he showed himself to be a true gentleman by finding his lost, OLDER brother, at the risk of his own life and the loss of a title.

  • Elis Madison

    In the first book in this series, (don't read this if you haven't read the first book) (view spoiler)[Charlotte Cameron's sister Miranda jilted Phillip Maddox, the Duke of Colster, and ran off with the man she loved.(hide spoiler)] As a result, the two remaining Cameron sisters, not to mention Miranda's lover's business partner, are shunned. They're all more or less ruined by the vindictive bastid.Char has decided to bite the bullet and accept the advances of a Scottish laird who hates Colster, [...]

  • Eskimo Princess Jenkins

    Very well written story.Started out kinda slow, but the more you read the more you get sucked into the story.Phillip starts out in the story as an a$$, but he changes a little. He is still arrogant, but not as much as an a$$.Charlotte, she has some serious issues. She wants to fit in with the ton, but she has really no clue about going about it. She disregards most of the "rules" of the ton. Then she tries to side with someone who she has a common enemy with and that all goes to hell.Justin/Tavi [...]

    This book was good, but it had a lot of filler and then it [the filler] was never resolved. The disappointment for me was that the end was rushed and abrupt. It ended good (a feel-good ending to the romance part between the duke and the lady) but all of the filler (a feud between two lands and a feud between two brothers who just recently found out they were brothers, and so on) just fell to the wayside. The feuds took up so much in the book that I found myself wanting to see how THAT part ended [...]

  • Haley Osborn

    I really enjoyed this book. The relationship grew fast but it was very well established. Charolotte and Philiip were both enjoyabe characters and more than once I found myself laughing at their banter. It was interesting seeing Phillip who wasn't used to adventure start to let lose a little bit. Even better was the moments between him and Justin. Enjoying Philip as much as I did I found myself drawn to Justin as well. I can't wait to read his story. All in all a great love story with some advent [...]

  • Amber

    I've discovered that in romance, and historical romance in particular, there's a thin line between seduction and HOLY FUCK DUDE behaviour. The hero in this story leapt that hurdle and then the next one of "do you really have be THAT much of a dumbass?" and then the last hurdle of the "I guess since you're such an douchebag you'll have to make a GRAND GESTURE." The writing was good though, so I think I'll read more by her.

  • Patricia Kate

    This was pretty good mix of romance and adventure. My only small issues with the book is that I didn't buy into some of the tension between the h/H in that he supposedly can't propose marriage because of her background. In the previous book in the series, he proposed to her sister with the same background. The only other issue I had is that the book seemed to a somewhat abrupt halt. I know the series continues in later books but this one seems unusually quick with its ending.

  • Lou

    I quite enjoyed that - I'm in the mood for undemanding braincandy, and that's pretty much what I got. It wasn't the longest book, and I think I'd have liked to see some more interaction between the twins, and a longer build up to the romance (!) but the chemistry between the characters was pretty good. I suppose there's more of the twins getting to know each other in the rest of the series, but I'm not so interested that I'll track them down.

  • Nicole

    I read this out of sequence so not as enjoyable as if I hadn't read the last book already. Based on her previos novels, I was also expecting a little bit more from this storyline. There was so much build up in the first story to the characters extreme dislike for each other that I was expecting a lot of drama. And, I was left disappointed. Instead, they were in each other's arms within the first chapter.

  • Brittany

    This was a quick read. It was just okay for me. The main characters fell into bed with each other way to fast. It all seemed very superficial to me there relationship just lacked substance. I will be interested to see how Justin turns out. Other than that it was very much your typical historical nothing really special about it.

  • April

    What a great story! I laughed and cried many times! Such wonderful writing and really engaging characters!! I love this authors work!!My favorite book in the series!! Two characters that journey from hate to love!! I adore the extra intrigue as well. It serves up a nice chunk of steam as well!I am currently on a Regency kick and this one was terrific!!

  • Tasneem

    I enjoyed seeing Philip and Charlotte find love with each other. Their passion was real and I totally understood his caution in his emotions for her. I did find the ending with stopping the coach a bit over the top, but because it wasn't a huge crowd still believable. Maxwell did get it right that the English abhor display - especially if one stems from the middle and upper classes.

  • penelopewanders

    Begins in London 1807, continues to Scotland. A woman convinces her younger sister to jilt the duke and then finds herself caught up and falling in love with this "enemy" Fun story, seems to be part of a series but not a problem.

  • Czarina

    4 StarsWould've given it a 4.5 or 5 if there was an Epilogue. I really hate being left hanging and asking, "what happened next?" (view spoiler)[Did they actually get married? If so, where? Was Justin the best man? (hide spoiler)] I have more questions. So

  • Jana

    I've read this scenario too many times and too many times it is just gibberish talk and kitten and puppies situation in this genre which can handle more gore. There is still much to learn young padawan.
