The Courtesan Duchess - Joanna Shupe

This book was awful. There was some plot here and there, but after a while I started to skim in self defense.

 

Nick was a terrible hero and Julia and her "plan" was beyond stupid. I still have no idea how they fell in love with each other.

 

We are also causally told that Nick's mother was raped by his father so that's why she didn't care for him growing up. I don't even know what to say.

 

The next book in the series is called the Harlot Countess. I am giving that one a hard pass.
