Disciplining the Duchess by Annabel Joseph


Our Recommendation

Reading historical romance is normally not my thing, but because I love Annabel Joseph and her dirty mind, I had to read Disciplining the Duchess. I won't lie - it took me a few chapters to get used to the language and formality of speech. But once I got into the story and got everyone straight, I fell in love with this couple and rooted for them to make it. Knowing Annabel Joseph is somewhat of a sadist, I didn't feel like I could anticipate how the story would twist and turn, and thankfully, it twisted in unexpected ways. [February 2013]

Turn around, wife. It is time to pay the price for your shenanigans.


Hi. My name is Angie, and I’m a social-media-and-smut-book-reading addict. Hi… Angie… I’ve been working hard on the magical internet since 2006 when I retired from teaching elementary school to stay at home with my two baby girls. Now, I am a smut peddler. You can follow my nonsense on Twitter and Facebook. Simply, I’m just a girl, looking at the book world, asking it to love her.
