The Duke Is Mine

Fairy Tales

“Eloisa James is extraordinary.”
 —Lisa Kleypas

In the capable hands of USA Today and New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James, the fairy tales we loved as children take on vibrant—and sensuous—new life. With The Duke is Mine, the beloved author of A Kiss at Midnight and When Beauty Tamed the Beast gives the classic tale of the Princess and the Pea a delightfully romantic Regency spin. Fans of Victoria Alexander and Julia Quinn will simply adore this historical romance gem about a lady reluctantly betrothed to one duke but pursued by another; a tantalizing tale of love, lies, and one very uncomfortable mattress.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 28, 2011 – James s Regency-era rendition of The Princess and the Pea hits the trifecta of sizzling romance, engaging characters, and an enthralling, quick-moving story. Curvy, brash Olivia and slim, proper Georgiana are twins, raised by their social-climbing parents to be suitable brides for dukes. All seems assured until Olivia s future husband, the dim-witted Rupert Blakemore, marquess of Montsurrey, turns 18 and declares that he will not marry until he achieves military glory. While he heads to war, Olivia accompanies Georgiana to meet Tarquin Brook-Chatfield, the widowed duke of Sconce and Georgiana s possible suitor. But Tarquin becomes immediately enamored of Olivia, who must then decide whether to risk Georgiana and Rupert s disappointment by returning Quin s affections. Olivia is a notably affable female protagonist whose intellect and good humor make her stand apart from many of the meek women of her era. Only James s weakness for modern colloquialisms (e.g. wardrobe malfunction ) mars this endearing tale.

Customer Reviews


The first third of the book is a jumbled, confusing mess. You end up loving Duke Rupert by the end of the book, but in the beginning I could not keep the two Duke's, their titles, and their families separate. And believe me, I tried!

Loved it!

The first few pages worried me but I kept on reading and was enthralled as I was pulled into the book! It was a great story , wish that there was a story for the other twin though! Can't wait to read another! I've enjoyed all your books!


I love her books, but this one was weird. Sometimes it felt very confusing and
