    Evie Dun writes a smart historical romance set in the Victorian era that takes place amidst the suffragette campaign for women s rights by getting parliament to amend the married women s property act There is implacable opposition to this from all corners, not just from men alone but other women too, and including the Tory party and Queen Victoria It is 1879, and the over educated, beautiful but destitute 25 year old Annabelle, inveigles her way to study amongst the first group of women at Oxford University after gaining a modest scholarship, for which she must support the radical political suffragettes led by Lady Lucie Tedbury, and their campaign to recruit powerful men of influence to champion their cause Annabelle has the task of recruiting one of the most powerful men in the land, the Duke of Montgomery, Sebastian Devereux, a cold hard man whose home Annabelle, and her two fellow bluestockings, Hattie and Catriona, manage to infiltrate.Things do not go to plan as Annabelle bec...

    And another debut author smashes it out of the park in 2019 It is becoming clear to be me why a fair girl like you has been left on the shelf You are not only bookish but a radical political activist All highly impractical in a wife. BRINGING DOWN THE DUKE was just. pure fun Deliciously swoony Just the right amount of angst There came a time in a duke s life when he rarely encountered an honest opinion, where he could be on his way to hell in a handcart and everyone would politely step aside and wish him godspeed.You might find yourself looking at this plot summary and thinking, sure sure, read that HR a thousand times Bluestocking attracts a Duke Nothing new And yeah okay maybe But that doesn t mean this isn t worth your time Have you by any chance missed that class at finishing school where they teach you to feign delightful ignorance in the presence of a man I m afraid so These characters all but leap off the page The attraction, the chemistry, the sizzle i...

    Somehow this cover brought to mind a rom com, but that is not what unfolds within these pages Instead, it s a clever historical romance, one like nothing I ve read before, though I admit I am not a frequent historical romance reader.In late 19th century England, Annabelle Archer is the daughter of a country vicar, now penniless Annabelle has joined the first class of female students at the University of Oxford Her scholarship has a price, though, and a worthy one she must advocate for women s suffrage.She s been told she must recruit men to support the cause, and in her sights is the Duke of Montgomery, Sebastian Devereux.Oh, and the Duke happens to be her political polar opposite, and handsome So very handsome.At the same time, Sebastian is finding Annabelle s green eyes irresistible however, she s a commoner and not fit to be his duchess.Even though this wasn t a rom com, there were still funny moments There were also some emotional times I found the romance between Sebastian and...

    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 even though I love modern and trail blazing heroines, I didn t feel that Annabelle was extraordinary for her time, n...

    TITLE BRINGING DOWN THE DUKEAUTHOR Evie DunSERIES A League of Extraordinary Women 1RELEASE DATE September 3, 2019GENRE Historical RomanceTHEMES TROPES Enemies to lovers, women s emancipationRATING ALL OF THEM CLIFFHANGER NoREAD MY REVIEW ON THE BLOGI m a huge fan of Judith McNaught s historical romance Why I m mentioning that Because this author s debut, BRINGING DOWN THE DUKE, transports me back to a time when I was devouring the novels by McNaught While Evie Dun s writing style is modern in parts which makes this story extremely readable, I m not complaining, mind you, because this author s words wrapped themselves around my heart However, the story, this deliciously angst filled plot, the yearning, the complex characters so reminded me of McNaught s I think that s one of the biggest compliments I can give an author.Evie Dun shows us how far women have come, how women fought for what we consider normal and rightfully ours This alone makes it this book worth reading and will give...

    Why I love itby Siobhan JonesWhen I started at BOTM, I was a professed literary snob and probably flaunted that term with pride queue eye roll I never read romance books because I assumed they were too cheesy and poorly written to be considered worthy of my time Years later, dozens of romance books devoured, I m so happy to report that, on that score, I was wrong.Set in turn of the century England, this is the story of Annabelle Archer, a plucky woman with the opportunity to become one of the first female graduates at the prestigious University of Oxford Upon entering college, she becomes an advocate for the women s suffrage movement, which is how she first encounters the Duke of Montgomery an influential, ill tempered political adversary whom she must convince into becoming an ally A clash of two strong willed, sharp tongued enemies Sounds hot Bringing Down the Duke gives us the best that the romance genre has to offer light hearted fun, steamy sex scenes, and lots of brooding, re...

    Today I learnt Find yo self a rich feminist with daddy issues.But for real, I read this in one sitting and stayed up until 2 30 am to finish it And now I m in this place of hell where I have to wait a year for the next book This is what happens when your pre order comes early and you have no self control so you read it right away.I just loved the characters and Annabelle having a background of not being like this pure virginal angel I felt so bad for her near the end when crap just picked up nonstop to screw her over I cannot wait for the next book with Lucie She continuously peaked my interests in every scene she was in I m wondering if we ll get a book about Sebastien s brother now too He could be a fantastic hotmess POV.

    Set in England, 1879, Bringing Down the Duke is an unusual historical romance The main character, Annabelle Archer is a daughter of an impoverished country clergyman, but she is also among the first group of female students at Oxford University and is a political activist of the suffragette movement Her task is to recruit men of power and influence to their cause and this is how she meets Sebastian Devereaux, the Duke of Montgomery, her political opposite There is a strong attraction between these two smart and strong willed characters However, Sebastian is aware that the bride he needs in order to secure a better position in society is somebody with money, social status and connections, somebody who is very different from the nearly destitute country girl he is developing feelings for The novel is very engaging and highly entertaining I am always interested in strong female characters the whole series is entitled A League of Extraordinary women and the fact that the story is set a...

    3.7 starsI received this book for free in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.In 1870s Victorian England, Annabelle didn t have a lot options when her father dies and is forced to live with her cousin who treats her like help he doesn t have to pay When a former friend of her father and professor from Oxford who she has been corresponding with offers a scholarship to their women s college, she works out a plan to attend There she joins up with the National Society for Women s Suffrage, makes friends, see s a pathway to gaining any smidgen of freedom, and meets a Duke.Having to take over the Dukedom at the age of nineteen, that his father did his best to gamble away, Sebastian has always felt the heavy weight of responsibility The Queen has personally asked him to be strategic advisory for the Tory party and he never shirks his duties When a suffragette boldly approaches him, she definitely catches his attention.In a ...

    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 students of Oxford That she dared to dream of a higher education during a time when the social class you were born into and your gender dictated what ...
