The Ugly Duchess free read ☆ 106 Heo would have given it a lifetime until she discovers that James desires not her heart and certainly not her countenance but her dowrySociety was shocked by their wedding but it's scandalized by their separation James heads to sea where he becomes a notorious pirate and Theo builds their estat. Theodora Saxby is not beautiful But she does possess a fortune James Ryburn Earl of Islay heir to the Duchy of Ashbrook is handsome And in need of a fortune When James is told by his father that he has gambled away the family s wealth embezzled from Theo s fortune and that James must marry Theo for her money James is adamantly against the idea Afterall he and Theo have grown up together He loves her certainly but in a brotherly fashion When Theo finds out that James was forced to marry her she is hurt and disillusioned Her fragile confidence in her looks takes a beating And as far as she s concerned the marriage which has barely begun is over James leaves takes to the high seas for seven years before eventually returning to EnglandOverall I really enjoyed this story Ms James is an accomplished and experienced writer and there s not too much I can add to what s already been said about her writing However I did feel the pacing was a little uneven And there were some events in the story that tested my overall enjoyment Which is why I said the Eloisa James is accomplished She did manage through sheer skill to turn this book around for me and have me ending up liking itJames and Theo he calls her Daisy marry young Their few days of marriage together are sweet as they begin to turn from childhood friends to lovers and the promise of sweethearts Their first love making scenes were really lovely Then the story just imploded a little when Theo realises James s true reasons for marrying her Both act impulsively dramatically with Theo declaring the marriage over and James leaving Admittedly they were both young but their actions were excessive For readers who dislike long separations this could be a problem as they are apart for seven long years Although it didn t particularly bother me there is another issue that some readers may find offensive in a romance view spoilerDuring the separation James takes a few lovers although he is not in love with them hide spoiler
