I am definitely going to start with the second one :)

The Unexpected Duchess - Valerie Bowman

Could have done without so much bloody drama in it, but I liked the characters :)
I liked that just like Lisa Kleypas "Wallflowers" series, we have a group of women best friends who decide to help one another.
I liked their banter, I liked their witticism.
I liked the main romance  _could have done without the soap opera thing :/

In the end I can't wait to read the friends future stories. The bluestocking in particular seems mighty promising!
And I especially liked that I had fun while reading this.
That doesn't happen much.
Yes, there were things, and actions that were just too risqué for a women to be able to do in that time and period, but, you know what?
I don't care. :)
