Miss Minerva Lane is a quiet, bespectacled wallflower, and she wants to keep it that way. After all, the last time she was the center of attention, it ended badly—so badly that she changed her name to escape her scandalous past. Wallflowers may not be the prettiest of blooms, but at least they don’t get trampled. So when a handsome duke comes to town, the last thing she wants is his attention. But that is precisely what she gets. Because Robert Blaisdell, the Duke of Clermont, is not fooled. When Minnie figures out what he’s up to, he realizes there is more to her than her spectacles and her quiet ways. And he’s determined to lay her every secret bare before she can discover his. But this time, one shy miss may prove to be more than his match...

"The Duchess War is lovely - smart, touching, funny, sexy, and dizzyingly romantic. Read it right away - yes, now. Everything on your to-do list can wait, believe me."--Carrie S., at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books
"The Duchess War is an intelligent and beautiful story for grown women and a romance for the girl who still believes in fairy tales. Heartily, even passionately recommended!"--Jill MacKenzie, at InD'tale Magazine
"The Duchess War is a thing of beauty... Her characters are not heroic by birth or destiny, they are heroic by choice."--Meoskop, at It's My Genre, Baby
"Milan is writing something much more important than 'just'romance--she's pushing the boundaries of the genre in interesting and surprising directions and she's delving into all the other things that matter in our relationships with each other. She writes fully formed people who are complicated and weird and broken in unexpected ways--just like those of us who exist outside of books."--Natalie, at Radish Reviews
"[A] beautiful, heart breaking romance with humor, love and forgiveness written by one of the finest historical romance authors."--Lisa Wolff, at Rogues Under the Covers
"The Duchess War is a very clever story and it is brilliantly written."--Michelle Kelly, at Another Look Book Reviews
