Claiming the Courtesan by Anna Campbell
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
In 1825 Verity Ashton chooses to forgo her life as a courtesan in favor of a simpler life. That doesn't necessarily sit well with her latest paramour, Justin Kinmurrie, the Duke of Kylemore. As he chases her to her hidden location, he takes her prisoner to persuade her to change her mind.
I didn't like Kylemore at all. He was just a big bully and threatened to hurt her. He wasn't anywhere close to being s hero, he was a child who balked because he didn't get everything he wanted. He was a tyrant that just went in and took it. He basically stole from her the life that she had wanted and made her have the life he wanted her to. I did not like the notion of turning his behavior into something romantic.
