    One thought on “The Irish Duchess”

    1. Wild young lady raised by the village, mostly, has an outsized sense of responsibility toward the local folks, despite her lack of money to help them much. Hero is an impoverished duke with an equal sense of responsibility toward a different bunch, including the heroine's cousin, who is also his cousin. He needs to marry money but he has to fetch this wild child from Ireland for his cousin first. And things happen. There are kidnappings of various types, rescues, deceptions, riding madly across [...]

    2. When exuberant and independent Fiona MacDermot conceived the idea of marrying a wealthy English lord in order to provide money for looms for the people of her village, she never anticipated marriage to a nearly penniless Duke. Equally determined to marry for money, Neville Perceval, Duke of Anglesey, had no intention of being found in a compromising position with an impoverished cousin of an Irish earl. Will this unlikely couple find a lasting love while fighting corrupt politicians, facing down [...]

    3. SPOILERS. I agree with another reviewer that the character of the hero was pretty much a control freak who didn’t really change until the end when the object of his desire, the truly awesome heroine, (does he change?) becomes “obedient.” Fiona, the heroine, is irrepressible, and is a fantastic character for that reason. If Neville, the hero, could have met her half-way and _that_ had made them equal partners, not her acquiescence to be an obedient wife (which doesn’t make them equal), it [...]

    4. Regency politicsI mistakenly read the 3rd book 1st, darn it. Enjoyed the politics of the times, not strictly a Regency, 1823 and George has become king. The Irish question was quite fascinating, and Fiona, who was in the previous books becomes the heroine, and quite a wonderful heroine she is. The Duke, who also apparently is in the previous books, is also quite a terrific hero. A good live story and a good historical. Now I am on to read one and two!

    5. 4 STARSThe Irish Duchess (Regency Nobles #3) The Irish Duchess is book 3 in Regency Nobles but the first one I have read. Thier are other characters that are well developed and feel like I missed things by reading this first. But it can stand alone.Thier were some love scenes in details. Lots of drama,action, with English nobles,Irish rebels,Irish army,Catholic church and Protestant church. Lots of groups that don't like the others differences.Neville Perceval is a Duke who is trying to get some [...]

    6. The Irish Duchess is a sequel to The Marquess, which I reviewed in September. Unfortunately, TID is not as successful a read as TM. The hero of TID, Neville Percival, appears in TM, as kind of a bad guy, so to see him as a hero in this book makes it difficult to set aside my earlier prejudice of this character. Neville falls head over heels in love with Fiona, a fiery (is there any other?) Irish ward of his cousin-in-law. I would have liked more exploration of the problems in early 19th century [...]

    7. THE IRISH DUCHESS by Patricia Rice is an exciting historical romance set in 1822. It is book 4 in "The Regency Nobles" series,but can be read as a stand alone. Visit the author's website for details on the others books in the series. "The Irish Duchess" is fast paced,and action packed. Follow, Neville Perceval, Duke of Anglesey, and Fiona MacDermot, cousin of an Irish earl, on a journey of passion,danger, romance and love through Ireland and English soil. As they fight their passion for each oth [...]

    8. I did enjoy this book. When I first read the blurb on the back I did not realize that it was Neville (I haven't read the second one yet). A couple of paragraphs in I realized who the "hero" was. I was not sure I could see him as the "hero" as I had only read the first book where a slightly unfavourable picture of Neville had been painted. With that in mind I decided to wait and seeybe he was not who we had briefly heard about in the first book. It is all a matter of perception. Right?As we begin [...]

    9. We finally have Neville's story and a very surprising match for him in the Irish Fiona. Although he was featured throughout the other books in this series, we never truly had an opportunity to find out "who" he is. I thoroughly enjoyed watching he and Fiona dancing around each other and it is nice to see the bad guys get what they deserve. The story could be considered dark by some due to the time period and the relations between England and Ireland at the time but they weren't completely dwelle [...]

    10. This was a fairly average story -- nothing really outstanding about it. There were so many extra characters that didn't really seem to add that much to the story, it was hard to keep track of them all. I never felt there was actual love between the two main characters, just lust. Everyone knows that doesn't make for a lasting relationship, then or now.Not an awful story, but not outstanding, either.

    11. A book about conquering fears and love overcoming whatever obstacles are in your path. The 1822 Irish/English setting is wonderfully described although some of the political aspects of the story dragged on. Overall, the characters were fun to read about and were described clearly for their different personalities. The romance between the two characters was enjoyable but fell a little flat against the backdrop of the political scene.Note: I won this book from LibraryThing Early Reviews.

    12. Five Stars "squared"! What a wonderful, wonderful story. I totally loved Neville! You out did yourself with this story, Ms Rice. Each book was slightly better than the previous one. But this one one of the best I have read in a long time. I enjoyed having all the couples in the storyline. you can feel the camaraderie and "family-ness." I'm going to miss them all.

    13. A good story with great characters. My only complaints are that some of the political stuff dragged a bit, and that there were some odd jumps in the plot as if some scenes had been deleted. But the writing was very good and it was an enjoyable read.

    14. This is about a Romance is a different light. It about a woman. It somewhat an adventure then a romance. There a lot going on in the book. There some drama and some really action though out the book. It a book in a series and this this the first one i read.

    15. Thoroughly liked fiona and Neville together. Neville is shown in a completely different light in this book towards others he was in and i found myself really liking him.

    16. Excellent seriesGreat heroine, little wild, very strong and more than enough humor to go around. Excellent references to Ireland and the troubles of the 1820's
