How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days

How to Lose a Duke in Ten Days: An American Heiress in London - Laura Lee Guhrke

DNF at 33%. Let me sum it up: man agrees to a marriage of convenience, complete with vow that he leave England forever. He nearly dies and so decides to break his vow, because he suddenly wants children. His wife, who was perfectly happy with him gone, makes it clear she doesn't want him or children. He doesn't take the hint, because he's a man, and he knows best that she really does secretly want him.

 

Argh.

 

So many things wrong with this one. I was hoping Edie would punch him in the face or maybe skewer his good leg. Their stupid bargain was the last straw

 

I think there are ways this plot could've worked, but this wasn't it.
