Never deny a duke

Ina MacCallum shows no signs of being even mildly impressed by him he is intrigued Until he learns that her mission in London involves claims against his estate Soon the two of them are engaged in a contest that allows no compromise When duty and desire collide the best laid plans are about to take a scandalous turn into the very heart of passio. I read this book maybe two weeks ago and now only vaguely remember it This does not encourage me to give it than a meh rating So that s what it gets meh from meUpfront I should state that I have been a longtime reader of Madeline Hunter HRs Since the first book she ever wrote in 2000 I ve always appreciated her historical research lack of excessive anachronisms addition of a little mystery to add interest to each romance and as far as the romance itself it was usually pretty intense and sexyBut the last HRs of hers I truly enjoyed were the Rarest Blooms uartet and a select few of the Fairbourne series Nothing since Now it all feels so been there done that with all the heroes and heroines almost clones of earlier ones Well this is not a new phenomenon It has happened to most recent work from other previously talented authors I can no longer appreciate once favorite authors such as Lisa Kleypas Mary Balogh Eloisa James or lesser favorites such as Sarah Maclean Elizabeth Hoyt Tessa Dare etcMaybe it s me But I m still going to give this new Hunter a meh The hero here is the last duke standing in her latest Decadent Dukes Society series He s the handsome and very ducal Duke of Brentworth The heroine is Davina MacCollum who is trying to recover Scottish lands confiscated from her family by the Crown and given toguess who Yep So we have an antagonistic relationship at first because our ducal duke doesn t want to acknowledge that Davina has a legitimate claim Need I tell you what happens here I think not However I will admit that some of the historical aspect was interesting About Scottish baronies and inheritance etc Although something Hunter mentions in her Author s Note still has me puzzled She says In Scotland baron is a minor title and ranks below Scottish baronets in the hierarchy of titles Well this is probably a Who cares to most people but it just makes no sense to me My limited research abilities lead me to understand that barons are not part of the Scottish peerage as opposed to English peerage where barons are the fifth and lowest rank In Scottish peerage the fifth and lowest rank is Lord of Parliament and barons do not figure in the ranking at all That s fine I just can t figure out how baronets could rank higher than barons anywhere Just the etymology of the name baronet implies a lower rank than baron Oh well Who cares If there is somebody else besides me who does care and can educate me please please helpAnyhoo this is an HR and that means that romance is the most important part of the novel So I will say that it s okay in that respect but the earth didn t move for me as I read the Hh interactions But at least we didn t have an annoying and too innocent heroine in spite of her being a virgin As a woman who would have been a doctor if the times had permitted it and who had been her physician father s assistant she knew a bit than the usual Hunter virgin and the sex scenes weren t as paternalistic on the hero s part as I d been finding them in other Hunter romancesThe bromance is good here too as is usual for a Hunter HR I usually enjoy the interactions between the men than those between the men and women So we have the first two decadent dukes of the series making their appearances here as well as their romantic pairings in those books The heroines of those books didn t come across as very appealing here but then they did not appeal to me very much when they were the MCs of their own romancesWell I dunno YMMV I just found this novel to be pretty meh
