The Captain's Bluestocking Mistress (The Dukes of War, #3) by Erica Ridley



Reviewed by Kim


I really love this series.

The characters are fantastic and lively and this book fits so smoothly into the series concept. I love a female character that is lively and spunky. Jane is not the norm for the time period and I think that makes her all the more fun! Even though Jane is considered a "spinster," she's a determined, intelligent woman that just will not let go of what she feels she wants.

In a time period where women had little choice, she decided what she wanted and set out to make it happen. Jane didn't take the easy road, she set her sites, if not her heart, on a man that was so damaged by war and his role in it that he would rather not speak and hide himself away rather than  deal with the world around him. Watching her break through, and in the process find love and not just passion, was an exciting adventure.

Captain Grey and Jane push through the pain and suffering that the war and life has caused each of them. They turn to each other and together find a love they never thought would exist in their world.
