Blog Tour: Winning Back His Duchess by Amanda McCabe*
'An invitation to Venice…
To save their marriage!
Suggesting divorce to her estranged husband Jamie, Duke of Byson, takes all Rose Wilkins’s courage. Years of distance and heartbreak have taken a toll—she needs a new start. But Jamie won’t hear of divorce, for the scandal alone. His counter-offer: a trip to Venice. Might discovering Venice’s delights together rekindle the still-simmering desire that drew Rose to Jamie as a starry-eyed young American heiress?'
This is the story of the third and final Wilkins sister Rose and her husband Jamie. Their story is unique and told over the course of 21 Chapters as well as a Prologue and Epilogue. This is the third book in 'The Dollar Duchesses' series.
Rose and Jamie's story is unique in the sense that they are already married at the beginning of this book. Instead of this being a book based solely on their courtship it is instead based on their marriage, both the pitfalls as well as the highs. The book concentrates on whether Rose and Jamie can get back what they had when they first married.
Throughout this story the reader learns what this couple has faced throughout the beginning of this marriage. They get to see the good and the bad from both points of view. The reader is taken on a journey to discover whether what these two want for their future is feasible and whether its what they both want.
Throughout the course of the book, the reader is given the opportunity to see the story from both Rose and Jamie's point of view as it switches. They also get to discover things before the other person in the marriage finds out.
This is a book all about whether it is possible to fix something that is broken. Whether the past can be healed or whether things need to stay firmly in the past.
Now let me tell you about the Author Amanda McCabe, who wrote her first romance at the tender age of sixteen, it was a vast historical epic starring all her friends as characters. It was written in secret during her algebra class; her parents wondered why math was not her strongest subject. She may have never used algebra since but her books have been nominated for many awards including the RTA Award, the Romantic Times BOOKReviews Reviewers' Choice Award, the Booksellers Best, the National readers Choice Award and the Holt Medallion. She currently lives in Santa Fe with a Poodle, a cat, her wonderful husband and far too many books and royal memorabilia collections. When she is not reading or writing, you can find Amanda taking dance classes, collecting cheesy travel souvenirs and watching the Food Network (even though she doesn't cook). Amanda also writes for Grand Central Publishing as Laurel McKee, the Elizabethan Mystery series as Amanda Carmack and the Manor Cat Mystery Series as Eliza Casey.
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I have read of the books in this series and will certainly be going to get missing book from the series. Although this book is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. Although readers may find themselves buying the rest of the series once they have read this story. You can get your copy HERE
