The Bluestocking Duchess by Julia Justiss


Drama, secrets and major changes, this book has them all
Alex is an estate manger for his cousin the Duke of Farisdeen and Jocelyn is the daughter of the estates librarian but a change in circumstances throws everything up in the air 
Jocelyn is an incredibly smart lady, she assists her father and brother with translations from Ancient Greek plays whilst also being a brilliant rider and teasing Alex. The more I learnt about Jocelyn the more complex she became and the more I liked her
Alex has a huge upheaval in his life but that doesn’t stop Jocelyn being the person he wants to be with, especially after he meets some of the London society brides! He is clever and knows what he is doing with the estate management. I will admit that as less of the story is written from his point of view it was harder to get to know him but he is a kind and caring person who knows what is important to him
Alex and Jocelyn’s story looks at what is important in their lives and how important it is to be who you are without having to compromise which is something that really transfers to modern times too. I did however struggle at times because there are time gaps which then resulted in decisions having been during them which did mean that I missed out on some of their development as characters in these important moments of their lives but overall I enjoyed this book and the characters themselves are brilliant 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a historical romance with fabulous characters who have huge personalities and who you will love
