Bringing Down the Duke Read & download ↠ 9 Review Ø E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ô Evie Dunmore Evie Dunmore Ô 9 Download England 1879 Annabelle Archer the brilliant but destitute daughter of a country vicar has earned herself a place among the first cohort of female students at the renowned University of Oxford In return for her scholarship she must support the rising women's suffrage movement Her charge recruit men of influence to champion their cause Her target Sebastian Devereux the cold and calculating Duke of Montgomery who steers Britain's politics at the ueen'. 35 stars There are many good ualities with this book but at the same time I wasn t as invested or giddy as I usually am for other romance books I ve read Some things I enjoyed the focus on women pioneers the discussion about women s roles and position in society and their own homes the friendship between the suffragists the banter between the protagonist and the love interest and the yearning from the love interest as well While their initial attraction to each other felt forced at first I enjoyed their intelligent conversations they felt genuine and showed the characters making real connections over important topics I wish they had connected this way first and the physical attraction came in slowly later as that would have been natural Unlike other romances I ve read the conflict in the last 13 of the book was actually warranted I believed the stakes and the conseuences here and appreciate the complicated sacrifices that weighed their actions However I was a little turned off by how often the love interest would get angry and arrogant towards the protagonist if he didn t get his way this was his reaction to everything even in the last 13 and it felt selfish The protagonist also became very emotionally dependent on him and I wish she had stood her ground firmly in her decisions and what she believed in especially since this book is supposed to be about suffragists I think if she were adamant in her values and individuality and if he were served a bigger slice of humble pie and sacrificed to meet her in the middle the story would have been impactful and he would have had satisfying character development beyond a grand gesture at the end Regardless I am open to reading the seuel when it comes out

Review Bringing Down the Duke

Bringing Down the Duke Read & download ↠ 9 Review Ø E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ô Evie Dunmore Evie Dunmore Ô 9 Download S command Her challenge not to give in to the powerful attraction she can't deny for the man who opposes everything she stands forSebastian is appalled to find a suffragist suad has infiltrated his ducal home but the real threat is his impossible feelings for green eyed beauty Annabelle He is looking for a wife of eual standing to secure the legacy he has worked so hard to rebuild not an outspoken commoner who could never be his duchess But he woul. This is a book featuring suffragettes but this is not a feminist book In fact Bringing Down the Duke seems to use its thin veneer of wokeness as an excuse to revel in gender essentialism Pretty much every encounter between the two leads mentioned feminine warmth and masculine hardness so I had strained my eyes from rolling them so hard before I was very far into the book The love interest Sebastian Duke of Montgomery is the kind of alpha male character to whom I have an instant aversion He s constantly looming over the protagonist Annabelle using his size against her grabbing her by the arm to stop her from getting her away backing her into walls He clearly gets off on this and spends time when he s not with her fantasising about forcing her into marriage and clapping himself on the back for having the self control not to rape her He is emotionally abusive towards his younger brother in a way that the narrative never recognises and yet the narrative would have us believe that Sebastian is one of those good feudal overlords who only ever has the best interests of his tenants at heart Please And then there s Annabelle who repeatedly acts like an idiot but whom we re told is very smart because she s read Thucydides whose political and moral principles seem to be based on the best interests of whomever she last spoke to and who never once seemed like the impoverished but genteel daughter of a rural Victorian clergyman whom she purported to be Her defining personality trait really is that she s Not Like the Other Girls hence why she ll go to a ball in a skintight fashionable gown with no undergarments on underneath Even on a practical level this wouldn t have been possible given how gowns were constructed then but Annabelle just draws all the men s eyes with her astounding beauty etcAdd to this the vague but disturbing racial undertones Annabelle is stunningly beautiful and this is implied to be because of distant French aristocratic or even royal descent Sebastian looks Nordic which means blond and suare jawed the description of Disraeli and another Jewish coded character made me suirm the dialogue which far too often sounds 21st century American than it does 1870s upper class British and which uses terms like existential angst which would not be coined for several decades the vicious pantomime dame caricature of ueen Victoria look I m an Irishwoman with a disdain for the system of monarchy and if I think it s an unfair caricature the melodramatic plot and the complete and utter lack of any historical research or understanding Dun repeatedly messes up forms of address for the aristocracy on the most basic level has someone practicing underwater archaeology in Greece in the 1870s when the first such excavations don t take place until the 1950s or 60s etcPlus on the very last page when our happy couple have overcome what we are told is crushing societal disapproval and scandal concerning a duke s decision to marry a mere gentleman s daughter uh huh and are making out on a yacht in the Mediterranean sure the verb used in Sebastian s inner monologue to describe having sex with his wife MountLike I said this is a book featuring suffragettes This is not a feminist book
