Review: Duchess by Chance by Wendy Vella

Aug 31, Tin rated it really liked it Shelves: So, I braced myself and barged the rest of the chapters and woohoo weny me, I prevailed. The H had behaved like an idiot to the heroine until he saw how beautiful she was. These works, however, she says, will never see the light of day! I loved the main couple and the story was easy to follow but duchesx boring in the slightest.

The romance is so sweet and totally believable. I think I had too high duchhess for this novel, but that doesnt mean that I didnt enjoy it! Will her past come back to cause Daniel has to marry Eve. May 23, Virginia Tican rated it liked it. The leads quickly showed they were far more dynamic than simple caricatures of their initial emotions and their evolution as people and a couple was a delight to read.

Eva and Daniel were a lovely couple. Upon his return, he makes a concerted effort at getting to know Eva and discovers that he has fallen in love with his wife, which is a wonderful thing to see.

The book carried me through many emotions. Yes, this is an honest review. And it didn’t disappoint!


Basically, Eva and Daniel’s fathers were gambling and once Daniel’s father was about to lose his fortune Eva’s father compromised and made a marriage contract between Eva and Daniel. And also in the characters that the author introduces: She was aware of how powerful and well-connected her husband is, but she didn’t consider asking him for help. Supported by an equally diverse cast, Vella clearly knows how to write realistic and entertaining characters.

The love affair between the MC’s grew gradually and the H soon realized that his wife was blameless in the scheme that her evil father had concocted. His honorable character shines brightly throughout the story, and I could feel his desire to protect Eva.

Other books in the series. Read Chapter 11, when they are planning Eva’s first ball. Writing is something Wendy has always found time for, and as an incurable romantic, the romance genre was a natural fit. There were numerous editing problems as well. Eva is used to being the victim of her father’s abuse and manipulations, but Daniel is angered by the scheme.

Thank you, Wendy, for the opportunity to read your work. Daniel grows to be very protective of Eva and he will do whatever he can to keep her out of harms way.

I found that our heroine was a bit too timid at first but I loved her in the end. I’m in general not really a fan of a guy who blames the woman even though she’s just as innocent as he is. Ho Traditional romance with damsel in distress and pat ending This is probably the first heterosexual romance I’ve read that had such a very traditional feel – a Regency damsel in distress with a secret rescued by a steady, noble lord.


Also there is a great cast of characters.

Although I prefer heroines with significantly more positive agency in the plot developments, if the story had been more compelling, I wouldn’t mind the occasional “Hero rescues heroine” story. I loved every page of this book and can’t wait to read more vell Wendy Vella.
