Review: Courtesan Duchess by Joanna Shupe

22494733Courtesan Duchess by Joanna Shupe

How to seduce an estranged husband—and banish debt!—in four wickedly improper, shockingly pleasurable steps...

1. Learn the most intimate secrets of London’s leading courtesan.
2. Pretend to be a courtesan yourself, using the name Juliet Leighton.
3. Travel to Venice and locate said husband.
4. Seduce husband, conceive an heir, and voilà, your future is secure!

For Julia, the Duchess of Colton, such a ruse promises to be foolproof. After all, her husband has not bothered to lay eyes on her in eight years, since their hasty wedding day when she was only sixteen. But what begins as a tempestuous flirtation escalates into full-blown passion—and the feeling is mutual. Could the man the Courtesan Duchess married actually turn out to be the love of her life?

4 stars

This book was amazing. One of my all-time favorite genres to read happens to be historical fiction with a little bit of romance (or a lot). Joanna Shupe did a fantastic job of writing these wonderful characters. I loved Julia, and her attitude. I really liked Nick also, but he had his moments where I just sat on bed, shaking my head at him. I really loved how Julia and Nick obviously belonged together. They were probably one of my top ten favorite couples in a book.

I just overall loved the style of the book, and the ending, and cannot wait until I read the next two books in the series.

*I received this book free from Tasty Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
