    One thought on “Love's Duet”

    1. Another winner! This one was even better than the last one. Sophia is a sweet, heroine with a quick temper and a forgiving personality. At first I did not like her. Her temper was so sour I thought she was little better that a spoiled brat. but she quickly improves and makes up for her horrid temper. The Marquis Damon "Camille" is an enigma. He doesn't do what gentlemen do. He didn't go to war, he doesn't hunt, he doesn't ride horses and he doesn't fight. He stays at home gardening, picking flow [...]

    2. Love's Duet is not one of my favorite Veryan's. The first 3/4's of the book was slow moving and was filled with the heroine going back and forth in her mind about the goodness/badness of Camille, the hero. I was not crazy about the goose, either. The last quarter was action packed and very entertaining.

    3. Wow. This cover is definitely atrocious! I looked at it as little as possible since it bears little resemblance to the characters or the possible decor of the time, and it made me want to vomit. However, the vivacious Sophia and the very flawed-but-noble Camille more than made up for the artistic horrors displayed on the front. I can't help but love the icy hauteur of Camille's father the Duke of Vaille, so his prominence in the story was welcome; and the rest of the cast, including the feathere [...]

    4. I could read this book over and over again. It is so fantastic. Ms. Veryan thrills again with this tale of love, lies, honor, and treachery. Okay, yes that has been used before and might sound cliched, but believe me, this book is not your same old sappy love story. Add in exploding chickens, custard soufflee, and a guard goose named Horatio and you've got yourself a winner with this one.

    5. One of the more unusual story lines I've ever read. There were times when I was having difficulty keeping up with the multitude of characters in this almost near gothic. But I have to agree, the pet goose Horatio steals the whole show.

    6. I love all of Veryan's work, but this is one of her best. Camille Damon is a charming, tortured hero, and his pet goose is hysterical.
