Read for Vaginal Fantasy Hangout book club.

Desperate Duchesses is a sweet (and a bit silly), fluffy little story that I devoured quickly. I wasn't quite sure how well I was going to enjoy the book in the beginning because the main female character, Roberta, briefly (briefly as in they bump into each other and exchange one or two sentences) meets a man and quickly comes to the conclusion that she has fallen in love with him.

Yeah, I don't enjoy the "love at first sight" or "instant love" storyline in books.  Lust at first sight, now that I can believe, and there is a whole lot of lusting going on in this book.

I liked Desperate Duchesses and as it's the start of a series, so I would continue on with the series to see how the characters and their relationships, like Jemma and Elijah, develop.
