Back Blurb :
Lady Eleanor Ramsey is the only one who know’s the truth about Hart MacKenzie. Once his fiancee, she is the sole woman to whom he could ever pour out his heart.
Hart has it all – a dukedom, wealth, power, influence, whatever he desire’s. Every woman want’s him – his seductive skill’s are legendary. But Hart has sacrificed much to keep his brother’s safe, first from their brutal father, and then from the world.

Now, Eleanor has reappeared on Hart’s doorstep – with scandalous nude photograph’s of Hart taken long ago. Intrigued by the challenge in her blue eye’s – and aroused by her charming, no-nonsense determination – Hart wonder’s if his young love has come to ruin him. . .or save him.
My View :
This is actually the first Jennifer Ashley book that I have read, I have read a lot of good review regarding her work and I thought it was about time that I gave her ago and i have to say that I wasn’t disappointed. This was amazing, the only thing I have to say against it and that is that I should have started from the beginning of the series and not the end which is entirely my fault but one that I m going to correct by starting reading the Highland Pleasure’s from the beginning.
But even thought I jumped into this series at the end it didn’t take any of the shine of, it was so well written that you know exactly who is who and what’s going on from the first page, because I hadn’t read any Ashley’s work before I didn’t have any high or low expectation’s so even if her work wasn’t has good as a lot of other review’s claimed it to be I wasn’t going to start wailing that I was severely disappointed but in this case all the review’s that I have read were correct Jennifer Ashley is a marvelous writer she is a skilled and intelligent writer, The Duke’s Wife is pure brilliance.
I absolutely adore Hart MacKenzie he is the ideal Historical Romance hero that we all wish for he is charming, self righteous, a sensual devil that never take’s No for an answer and I have to say that I did fall in love with him and my oh my can this man love a woman. . .If Hart is just one brother then I can’t wait to get acquainted with the other’s and if they are anything like their big brother then I am going to have a jolly good Christmas. Eleanor is the perfect heroine, she is independent, self assured but you can see that vulnerable side of her that shine’s through especially when she is in the same room as Hart, they are a match made in heaven how on earth Hart could have walked away from her is a mystery, but in a way it is a good thing that he did because in doing so it has made him the man that he is.
This really is pure brilliance and I am so glad that I finally picked up one of Ashley’s book’s and I do have to thank all those wonderful blogger’s out there that have introduced me to one incredible author, and I can’t wait to read more, the MacKenzie’s are incredible and I can’t wait to get to know them a bit more.
