Poet At Large Reviews, Book, When You Give A Duke A Diamond (Jewel’s of the Ton)   Leave a comment

When One of London’s most popular Courtesans witnesses the murder of the Duke of Pelham’s fiance  she is forced to seek protection from the Duke.  A man who hates Courtesans and thinks that love is for fools.  While searching for answers as to why the Duke’s fiance was killed a strange but tender love affair ensues.  An affair that starts to change a man who was raised to be ridged as stone. In the end the Duke who could not stand Courtesans becomes the gallant hero. I read ‘When You Give a Duke a Diamond (Jewels of the Ton)’ by Shana Galen because of it’s play on the children’s book title ‘If You Give a Mouse a Cookie’. I really felt this book had a better and slightly more believable love story than many romance novels, but there were too many pages dedicated to the description of sexual acts for me to call it tasteful. We don’t really need the description of all the acts, if you take it to the point where the characters are undressing and white space till there is pillow talk it’s enough.  Anything more is just Smut.
