[ Pdf The Arrogant Duke ✓ young-adult-science-fiction PDF ] by Anne Mather ↠´ I didn t realize I was reading a book from 1970 until I was done I was thinking late 70s It was good, but the H and h didn t spend a whole lot of time together I can see why the Hero fell in love with the heroine, but I don t really understand why she fell in love with him I guess it s cause he was hot and had an accent Makes sense, right The 16 year old bitchy niece made things interesting, but the book still could ve used drama And I actually liked the little bit of interaction we saw between the heroine and her money hungry father More of that would ve been interesting, too. Escape Juliet Savored The WordFor Years, Juliet S Father Had Used His Wealth, Power And Influence To Rule Her Life But Now, She Was Free To Make Her Own Decisions She Had Assumed A New Name And Identity, And Had Run Away To A Job On This Beautiful West Indian IslandBut Had She Jumped From The Frying Pan Into The Fire Bad As Her Father Had Been, Her Employer, The Duque Felipe Ricardo De Castro, Turned Out To Be Even Domineering And What Was Worse Juliet Fell In Love With Him Occasionally hilarious, like when the hero s shirt came unbuttoned as he was inspecting a boat because, of course and the nearly twenty year difference in their ages was a little icky, but overall entertaining. Well, overall its a nice description of island in Barbados but lacking something it feels something is missing and the author just want to get done with the book The story describing Portuguese woman as someone that just want to take any possible chances of marrying rich but in the end failed Is the author has something with Portuguese woman i read 3 of her novels and most of them portraying women from Portugal west Indies are all somewhat ill mannered or will do anything to marry a rich guy But am sure, this is just characters in the novels THis is a very early Anne Mather It is a sweet read with the heroine Juliet taking on a companion role with the wheelchair bound niece of the Duque, Felipe in the Carribean He is a classic alpha male with a tender side for his orphaned niece. Felipe is obviously interested in Juliet but his cousins widow plays the Other Woman to the hilt, determined to alienate Juliet and marry Felipe herself Juliet has her own secrets She is a rich girl escaping from her dominating father who wants her to marry some tragic losers back in London. A nice little story with happy endings all round apart from the other woman.
In the long line of Anne Mather books I ve read I find this one to be one of the best The story was delightful, funny, painful and earth shattering at times The characters were written to perfect all exhibiting down to real, real world personalities I feel in love with the hero and heroine I even began to like Teresa and the heroines father Such a great read, amazing Fun little romance There was a large age difference which I wish had been addressed in a meaningful way but that was the style back then 1970 She was quite the insightful young woman and just went into the hero s household and fixed everyone right up I wish they had spent a bit time together but that was the way romances were written back in the day There was a nice feel for the Caribbean islands and I kept flashing on the devastation going on there now which made me sad.
