Pure and Untouched

The Duke of Ravenstock is the most attractive and elusive bachelor in London — and the most notorious.His exploits and romantic escapades keep the salons of the Social world buzzing — but never more so than when he announces that he will marry. His friends soon realise that what has captured the Duke’s heart is the purity and innocence of his intended bride.The wedding date has been fixed when the Duke discovers by accident that his fiancée has taken a lover, a close friend of his.Shattered and disillusioned, the Duke plots a cruel revenge. When he reveals to his sister, the Mother Superior of a Convent in Paris, that he seeks the most innocent girl he can find for his bride, she introduces him to Anoushka, a novice in her care at the Convent.Anoushka has a mysterious background, having been brought secretly and anonymously to the Convent as a child.n Somewhat reluctantly Anoushka agrees to marry the Duke, but, to his amazement, her beauty and innocence prove more of a challenge than he could possibly have imagined.

Impressions

    This book leaves me with some questions, for starters what actually happened to the first woman he was meant to marry. Secondly, did she not think to go back to her family or did she simply refuse to have anything to do with them.

    I could never wrap my head around the naivety of the past ages when it came to love. Or perhaps its the simplicity of what they felt and the fact that their time lacked the push and pull of our time and the endless games we play. Dragging out heartaches and suspense just to pretend we don’t feel the emotions we do
