First off, the cover is silly and the book is not What the book is, however, is that rarest of jewels emotional and passionate whilst remaining sweet and delicious You ve read this story a thousand times uptight dude meets unconventional chick Strong personalities clash Aggravation turns to want turns to love But Dun does it with panache She breathes new life into a beloved trope giving it a fresh spark yet not destroying something sacred There is something magnificent in finding that rare book that gives you the feels without being smothering or cloying or depressing It s a deft hand that crafts something this delicate yet substantial Evie Dun s debut is a marvel Set against the backdrop of the British suffrage movement, Bringing Down the Duke is a witty, richly detailed, historically significant, and achingly romantic celebration of the power of love and the passionate fight for women s rights A stunning blend of history and romance that will enchant readers.
This is an incredibly strong debut in historical romance I m excited to see a new author who reminds me so much of Courtney Milan, as I would love to see historicals with that quality of writing, thematic depth, and 21st century attitudes lens applied to a historical milieu I want to describe this books as plucky and charming, as well as feminist AF and quite swoony Beyond that read the back cover copy If this book sounds like a trope combo you could like, I highly recommend it Especially for readers who have some trepidation about the romance genre I think this could be a friendly point of entry if you already know you enjoy historical fiction in generalVery excited to see from this author in the future Berkeley is seriously slaying the game with their 2019 line up Title Bringing Down the Duke Series A League of Extraordinary Women 1Author Evie DunRelease date September 3, 2019Cliffhanger NoGenre historical romancePerhaps, her father should have made her read Sleeping Beauty instead of The Iliad her life might have turned out quite differently.
There s been a lot of early hype for this book, and I m here to say that every bit of it has been earned I ve read a lot of historical romances with strong heroines who overcome the obstacles and restrictions put on them What I genuinely don t think I ve read is a heroine who joins the women s suffrage movement, and that was a big drawing point for me I was really intrigued to read about how the author would portray the group of women, the public s perception of them, and the challenges they faced I loved the fact that Annabelle is one of the first female student



I seriously question my life because I m reading all these September releases which, particularly in this case, means I have a very long wait for the next book and boy do I want it.
Is this my favourite HR of 2019 I think it might be I m not quite rounding up here but man this is a strong, high, four star read This has a plot we ve all seen done a million times but omg Dun makes it feel fresh and new and fun I devoured this in a handful of hours which, considering this slump BS, says a lot I m blown away this is a debut It s always a gamble, particularly in this genre, but don t sleep on this one, bookies Bringing Down the Duke has smart ladies, women s rights, a romance that defies societal rules banter, swoons, tension, chemistry, fabulous secondary lady characters, and.
If you can, request If you can t, preorder If you don t want to do either, recommen Bringing Down the Duke is a debut novel with lots of potential The book had some of my favorite aspects and it also played during a time, the late 1800s, which isn t often portrait in historical romance novels Most stories are set during Regency England between 1811 and 1820 This novel plays during the time of suffragettes, when women were being allowed at college and during the time of winning voting rights for females It was certainly an exciting time With many strong and forward thinking women.
I really enjoyed the different era The author kept the information about that particular time well balanced And I applaud her for writing about a not so overly covered period of time Although not everything resonated with me the way I hoped it would Nevertheless I really enjoyed the way the author portrayed that specific epoch of time.
I think what was crucial for me was that e
