The Duchess War by Courtney Milan

The first novel in the Brother’s Sinister series and my second Milan book. Again I found the romance much too rushed, and the male protagonist implausibly perfect. Also implausible is the notion of a peer thinking and acting as the Duke of Clermont does in this book. It just didn’t work for me, I could not suspend my disbelief enough to accommodate it. Milan writes nicely and delivers escapism but I don’t really enjoy her books. There simply isn’t enough angst or “realistic” characters who behave credibly in them for my tastes. ★★★☆☆
