Two Dukes are Better Than One
by Lorna James
Publisher ~ Riverdale Avenue Books
Genres ~ Menage, Erotica, Historical Romance
On the surface, Cromwell Stone and Huxley Brigmore loathed each other. From their school days at Eaton to their ascension as peers of the realm, the two dukes could be counted on to be on opposite sides of an argument. However, only a trusted few knew that the passion they shared was deeper and more forbidden than whose horse would win at Newmarket. Not only did they go through women like they changed their cravats, they did it together.
Lady Sophia Hodges’ obsession with tarot cards and the spirit world would have labeled her as odd, if not for the fact the Queen shares her interest. While searching for a connection with her dead mother, she narrowly avoids a scandal with Cromwell Stone. She blames that erotic manuscript she's been reading in secret for giving her such unnatural curiosities. When Sophia is powerless to stop her father from gambling away their livelihood, and even less able to stop him from arranging a marriage to Stone, she consults her tea leaves and sees a future rife with passion and other confusing portents.
Little did her father know, she secretly loved another duke. Huxley Brigmore never even looked her way, but she had fallen for him ever since he chased off a gang of ruffians who had been about to accost her. Now, she was going to marry his arch enemy, Stone, and be hated by default.
Only it doesn't work out quite that way as it seems both men are intent on pursuing her and fulfilling every naughty fantasy a well-bred virgin shouldn't even be having. When the tarot leads the three of them to try to solve a mystery surrounding Huxley's family, they face peril and forbidden passion in an attempt to find the perfect future.
While looking for an easy sexy read involving MFM I decided to give this book a try. It sounded like fun and I was intrigued to see how one would write this genre in an historical era.
It was a fast read and there were some very hot scenes but for me the part that caught my interest is the interaction between Cromwell Stone and Huxley Brigmore. Trying to figure these two out occupied my thinking throughout the whole book.
Lady Sophia was a unique character and at times she appeared to be naive to the times she lived in. The introduction of the two men wanting her and how they kept pressing her to new experiences was handled with finesse.
I would of liked the plot a little more developed but it was enough to hold my interest.
