The American Duke by August Jade Sterling


The American Duke is a novel by August Jade Sterling.  I loved the subject and premise of this book.  The Story has an epic, sweeping feel that catches the reader in the plot.  However, several issues hindered this romance.  There were too many characters introduced into the main story.  The point of view changed too quickly from paragraph to paragraph confusing me at times.  There were too many subplots; they took away from the main frame of the book.

That being said, the book’s foundation was solid, and I loved the background of the Roxbury family.  Although there are many characters, each is vividly described.  If future books slimmed down the characters and focused more on the main plot, they could be excellent.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through Netgalley and the publisher.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.
