Blockhead hero

Once a Duchess - Elizabeth Boyce

I liked the heroine until roughly the end when she decides that she loves him too much to let his stupidity and cowardice stand in the way of a happy ending.

 

I enjoyed the fact that the hero did deal with the villain, however, again only in the usual fashion by banishing villain to the countryside. But at least we get to see him doing (or at least informing villain in person) it, instead of just reading about in the epilogue.
