Lady Roberta St. Giles wants a husband and her father isn't helping matters any.  Known as the Mad Marquess, her father's unusual poetry and unusual lifestyle has scared away any suitors that may have been interested in the lovely Lady Roberta.  It is clear Lady Roberta will have to take matters in her own hands.

After spying the beautifully proper Duke of Villiers at a ball, Lady Roberta heads to London on a mission to become the next Duchess of Villiers.  With the help from a very distant relative, the Duchess of Beaumont, Lady Roberta captures the eye of not only the Duke of Villiers but of the Duchesses brother, the Earl of Gryffyn.

Eloisa James writes such smart and witty romances that I can't help but adore them.  And I do adore Desperate Duchesses.  I was quite desperate myself for Roberta to pick the man I was crazy in love with and my heart would have been broken if she hadn't. 

With a story that will just suck you right in, Desperate Duchesses has secondary characters that will leave you begging for the next in this series.  I am, well, desperate for more Desperate Duchesses!
