BUDDY READ WITH THE FAMOUS SORAYA WHO IS MY MEMORABLE FIRST IT WAS A PLEASURE MY DEARHaving read Jess Michaels before I had probably higher than normal expectations for this book Everything Forbidden book 1 in Michaels Albright Sisters series was beyond fantastic It was angsty yet completely disarming for a historical romance It had depth a great plot and very erotic intimate scenes yes pleaseSo coming into this book I expected a similarity in the type of feeling this author had provoked in me I was half right Taken By the Duke was slow to start although the prologue was fast paced It didn t uite pick up for most of the book until the last 30% This is not to say it was boring or slow I would say like an even pace that never got tedious nor exciting The story starts with the death of the Duke of Rothcastle s sister Matilda in a freak accident caused by the ever on going battle between two families The Windburys and Rothcastles Her death affects both families eually but only increases each family s thirst for revengeSix months after the accident Liam of Windbury is grieving the loss of his love and Christian of Rothcastle is stewing in the heat of his demand for revenge in the midst of grieving for his dead sister Stuck in the middle and a casualty of the hatred between both families is Ava Liam s sister who unwittingly becomes a pawn in the never ending battle between dueling housesAva was strong willed and intelligent always playing stronger than she actually was Her fear never forced her to freeze up or do stupid things rather she often analyzed her situations in a very clinical way to the shock of Christian the Duke of Rothcastle and her captor Christian was very interesting And sexy He began as a vengeful guilt ridden man intent on invoking the same fate on his enemy Liam of Windbury by kidnapping Ava and forcing Liam to feel the pain of loss from losing a sisterBut as he sets out to gain revenge he becomes much too aware of Ava and spontaneously decides to trade her brother s safety for Ava s innocence Sexual seduction never felt so good to both Christian and Ava and what ensues is a bond that neither one expected nor can deny The sex scenes were HOT but seemed to replace any real depth to the story considering that s all they did for a while I liked how Christian transformed how he was awakened to feel anything other than hatred and animosity He slowly turned to Ava for comfort despite being suspicious and mean at times Even Ava was changed by the bond she developed with Christian Where as at first her seduction and sexual barter was through negotiation she came to crave and relish in Christian s touchThe last 30% however is where I felt the story got exciting and definitely meatier Secondary characters and their roles were exposed here as well as the true nature of Ava s brother I had felt sorry for him initially but by the end I wanted to deck him The things he thought of were cray crayThis book reminded me of Claiming the Courtesan another historical kidnapping tale That book however was fast paced and had depth if I was to compare and I loved itSo all in all this was a decent book with some memorable lines and an expected HEA I only wish the pacing in general was as exciting as the last third This is the first in a series so we aren t finished with Ava Christian and Liam but at least we have something to smile about
