A stunning debut for author Evie Dunmore and her Oxford suffragists in which a fiercely independent vicar's daughter takes on a powerful duke in a fiery love story that threatens to upend the British social order.
England, 1879. Annabelle Archer, the brilliant but destitute daughter of a country vicar, has earned herself a place among the first cohort of female students at the renowned University of Oxford. In return for her scholarship, she must support the rising women's suffrage movement. Her charge: recruit men of influence to champion their cause. Her target: Sebastian Devereux, the cold and calculating Duke of Montgomery who steers Britain's politics at the Queen's command. Her challenge: not to give in to the powerful attraction she can't deny for the man who opposes everything she stands for.
Sebastian is appalled to find a suffragist squad has infiltrated his ducal home, but the real threat is his impossible feelings for green-eyed beauty Annabelle. He is looking for a wife of equal standing to secure the legacy he has worked so hard to rebuild, not an outspoken commoner who could never be his duchess. But he wouldn't be the greatest strategist of the Kingdom if he couldn't claim this alluring bluestocking without the promise of a ring...or could he?
Locked in a battle with rising passion and a will matching her own, Annabelle will learn just what it takes to topple a duke....
??There is nothing quite so satisfying as seeing such a man brought to his knees by a beautiful woman with nothing to her name except an inviolable sense of her own self

DNF at 32%. Incredibly boring with zero chemistry between the leads, and no real tie to the forced use of the suffragette movement. The idea wasn’t fully developed so everything felt flat and one-dimensional. ( )

This book was billed as historical fiction, so I was disappointed. It is more a romance that happens to be set in late 19th Century England, i.e. more of a beach read than a quality history novel. The novel is Ms. Dunsmore’s debut. She can weave a good tale, for sure, but the writing is a little awkward to me in places. For example, she frequently uses words other than “said” during dialog, apparently in an attempt to convey the tone of the voice, but those words sometimes miss the mark. For example, she follows a sentence or two with “she chirped.” I just don’t get how anyone “chirps” words. However, those were minor criticisms. Overall, a good first novel. ( )

Perfect romance.

She’s a common, feisty, poor, bluestocking (with a past!) who is fighting for the right to vote. He’s a handsome, stodgy, politically savvy Duke with a whole lot of family responsibility plus some special instructions from The Queen herself. Of course their paths cross and they have no business being together but……..

She has some great smarty-pants friends who I am sure will be the focus of future books in the series.

There’s plenty of sex in this but it feels more about the relationship and the people than about sex and that always wins points with me. ( )

I loved how this story had many parallels to Jane Austen's "Pride & Prejudice". I found the story to be fun and flirty. I did find a couple things to be a bit predictable but I loved it all the same. ( )

Just not for me.. reading outside my usual genres to expand my horizons. This rating is a reflection of my personal preferences. ( )

A stunning debut for author Evie Dunmore and her Oxford suffragists in which a fiercely independent vicar's daughter takes on a powerful duke in a fiery love story that threatens to upend the British social order.
England, 1879. Annabelle Archer, the brilliant but destitute daughter of a country vicar, has earned herself a place among the first cohort of female students at the renowned University of Oxford.
