    Some reviews I want to tempt people into reading the book without giving away crucial plot details and others I really want to discuss the book so I kind of have to. This is one of the latter.Regency spanking fiction from Annabel Joseph? I thoroughly enjoyed Pleasing the Colonel a while back (and I have since become a Downton Abbey fan) so I was so there.What I didn’t expect to find was a book that made me think so much of Club Mephisto only in how very opposite it was. Molly spent all her day [...]

    This was between 4 and 5 stars, and since it left me in a good mood, why not 5.This is a story about a ditzy chick (she was supposed to just be bookish, uncultured, and misunderstood, but she really tended towards being an airhead) who, through her refusal to recognize the consequences of her actions, causes her and the H (a duke, of course!) to have to get married. Ohd the H has a spanking fetish (Woot!)What I liked about this book is that, even though it's unapologetically a spankfic, and is e [...]

AND THEN YOU HAD TO GO AHEAD AND FREAKIN RUIN IN ! HUMPH ! :/ But sadley there is NO WAY in hell i ca [...]

    It is always such a comfort to tuck into a Regency romance, where I can be sure to read about the oddities of the season, the capricious opinions of the ton, and invariably end up at one or more balls and/or house parties. These things don't occur in my life, for which I'm very grateful, but they make for great reading.On the downside Regency romances can get stale after reading several hundred of them. It isn't unusual to have feelings of deja vu while reading one. Disciplining the Duchess comb [...]

    Originally, I was prepared to give this book nothing less than a two because I felt that it wouldn't be fair of me to rate it a one since I'd gone in knowing it had physical discipline. In the end, though, I've decided to give it a one because of the abuse and how it was readily excused and accepted. Honestly, I probably won't be reading another book that has physical discipline elements because it just screams abuse to me. It's just not the genre for me.I was enjoying the novel up until Courtla [...]

    I read this and was pleasantly surprised by the historical accuracy of the representation of Regency society, particularly the aristocracy. The story is about a minor aristocrat and young lady Harmony, who has developed a passion for reading and history, and had far more freedom growing up with her overindulgent widowed father than most of her counterparts. However, her brother has taken it upon himself to alternately guard her honour, whilst laughing and bullying her as she travels from house p [...]

    Spoiler Ahead This was an ok read that was kind of slow in the beginning. Miss Harmony Barrett has managed to repel every gentleman of consequence and engineer a debacle at Almack’s so horrifying that her waltzing privileges are revoked. I like reading historical reads and I read Ms. Joseph's "Spanked Series" and I liked all of the books in that series and I thought that this book would be like that one. The Duke of Courtland, a man known for his love of duty and decorum. He is an only child t [...]

    What a wonderful book!Once upon a time, I read historical romance by the wheelbarrow-ful, and this book reminded me why I loved some of them.The synopsis is not entirely accurate, as the compromising situation was not stumbled upon blindly - at least not by the Duke of Courtland. He saw that he had a choice and chose to step into the situation, fully and completely aware that to do so, meant he would be marrying Harmony. While it is not spelled out in the book, I believe he continued on because [...]

    HmmmmI wanted to like this book better, but I just didn't/couldn't.Initially what put me off was that Harmony seemed way too over-the-top ditzy. I just didn't buy that she didn't know or care about the consequences of her actions. Whether it was walking to the Roman ruins, using the wrong flatware, letting the dog into the dining room, etc. It didn't make her seem free-spirited, it made her seem like a stupid airhead.Then what put me off was Court! Someone please remove the stick from his ass, a [...]

    6 DUKE OF COURTLAND STARSI fell in love with this book, every single page of it. Not a boring bit in between. It's one of my favorites this year. I don't know if I can do this book justice in a review, I'll try my best though.I cried. I cried for Harmony. I cried at the injustice. I cried happy tears when Court reclaimed their love. 'Disciplining the Duchess' has more of 'Domestic Discipline' than any other form of BDSM. I think people nowadays consider this to be a part of TTWD (This thing we d [...]

    This was a wonderful read!When the intellectual spinster Harmony's impulsive nature leads her to be unintentionally compromised by the duke Court, they are forced into marriage by society.How he tries to mould her into a duchess, while spanking her both for fun and her misdeeds forms the story.I really liked the interaction between the H and h before the wedding.After it, the couple were passionate with some really good angsty moments.Harmony was a kind, gentle klutz who got into trouble more of [...]

    NovelIt is often the case while reading a historical romance novel set in ye olde England that there are complaints against the modern use of language or perhaps an Americanism that just wouldn't be used in England at the time. For example, my one pet hate is the use of 'British' instead of 'English' or 'Scottish.' I am leading up to a point here, while reading the Disciplining the Duchess I had problems leaving my modern sensibilities behind and fully going with the concept that a husband would [...]

    Gw bacanya baper dong, pas mbaknya ditabokin sama masnya pengen gw bales tabokin masnya ahahahahaha lagian segitu susahnya apa nerima mbaknya apa adanya, trs pas masnya galau mbaknya berubah gw tambah kesel! lah gimana sih itu yg die arepin, tp pas berubah kaga terimaaaaaa huh huh huh #ngebul Jadi asal muasalnya tu (view spoiler)[ Harmony Barret, anak earl dan ude 5 season tu die gak bisa memikat lord satupun, karena tiap kali di ajakin ngobrol si Harmony ini terlalu pinter dan sering ngomongin [...]

    So great to return to my historical romance roots on occasion. This Regency romance reminded me why I always believed the "ton" was full of crap when it came to their expectations, and it turns out the characters in this book agree with me to some extent.Court and Harmony get off to a rough start in their relationship and there are many hurdles for them to overcome. Just when you think things are getting better, they get worse. But neither is willing to give up completely and they so deserve the [...]

    MehI found Court to be an arse & it annoyed me that Harmony forgave him so easily make the transition from bully to loving disciplinarian somewhat believable, there needed to be more introspection & personal development on the the part of Court & Harmony should have required more than a quick diddle to rekindle her love. This was my first foray into m/f romance in over a year & it has me scurrying back to the m/m genre with alacrity.

    Miss Annabel is an erotic genius! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It felt very authentic and at the same time deliciously hot. The way the story and characters were developed seemed natural and intriguing. I hated and loved Court, and was also pleasantly surprised with Harmony's humor and mischievousness.

    I just love this author!I've been wanting to read a Historical and was excited to read Disaplining the Duchess. AJ has a way that pulls you into care about her characters from page one. I found Court and Harmony very likeable and loved watching them grow together. I wished for more development on the Disaplining but overall this was a winner.

    My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the bookDisciplining the Duchess was my second Annabel Joseph novel. I’m a sucker for Erotic Historicals but BDSM stories always make me a little uncomfortable, not knowing how far ‘things’ will go etc. But I must admit I enjoyed this much better than the author’s other EHR, Lily Mine. Got me hooked right from the beginning and I felt the need to know what’s going to happen next. This book also made me very emoti [...]

    Usually, I'm not into historical romances. They make me think of stiff dresses and stiff ladies and stiff sticks up peoples' a$$e$. I don't go picking up historical romances, it's just not my thing That's what I kept telling myself. But when Annabel Joseph came out with Disciplining the Duchess, I had to buy it and I had to read it. Because Annabel Joseph. Duh. (Okay, so I’ll confess that I had already read Lily Mine and Cait and the Devil by this point and loved those too, so I knew this wou [...]

    As always with Annabel Joseph, my libido enjoyed the book up to where the hero loses control and abuses the heroine, and then it kind of threw up and shut down when the hero decided he was perfectly within his rights to beat a depressed and fighting wife. Only the contrast was much greater this time, because I *really* enjoyed the couple when they were getting along. And because the abuse came earlier in this book than in most of Annabel Joseph's books, with a more episodes of good sex afterward [...]

    This book may not be for everyone, even those who might like BDSM. I think there is a fine line between abuse and BDSM. I think one thing to consider is the time period of the novel. Were husbands really within their rights to beat their wives into submission? I seem to recall another novel that mentioned this. Harmony was clueless at times (almost slapstick clueless) but I did like her. I felt for Court's and Harmony's struggle about their convictions. Court believing what he was doing was righ [...]

    Well the first BDSM book that I read. Honestly I got hooked from the characters of the h/h. I loved the start of the book, the flow and then I got disturbed when the spanking started. At first, I can't understand why, some men will do that. As I go on reading the book and keeping an open mind, I thought on myself that some people find pleasure on there partners pain. Spanking for pleasure is one thing, but when the spanking for punishment and using a stick for it Well that I can't imagine. I fel [...]

    ****audiobook****I discovered this author quite by accident and I'm so happy I did! This story is very different from the rough love series I devoured, but just as fabulous! DTD occurs during the Regency period. Every single second of a single woman's life must be proper and stifling. Harmony is anything but and she is the laughingstock of the ton! Harmony completely ignores the rules of society. She ignores the rules one too many times and eventually has to pay the piper: marry the Duke and bec [...]

    I liked this BDSM historical story but found myself changing my feeling about it throughout the story probably based on my comfort level.At the beginning of this story, I loved Harmony and Court. Harmony was naive and impulsive and Court was reserved and bound by duty while trying to hide his proclivity toward BDSM.By the second "caning" incident however, this book disturbed me and my feelings toward Courtland changed. I felt he truly was a sadist and I wanted to see him get his comeuppance. By [...]

    Not a book that makes my hackles rise, but not really something I enjoyed. Domestic discipline is to me just a form of abuse (above all when there's a marked imbalance of power and the weaker one is not really consenting). I have no problem at all with BSDM as long as it's limited to the bedroom. Anything else depends.Here there was nothing really interesting going on and both leads were cringe worthy in different ways. But as I'm not a man, my target ends always to be the heroine. She's so over [...]

    It had potential but it's simple hard do go thru the abuse scenes. The male lead was abused when he was a child and in turn abuses his wife. The transition from abuser to loving disciplinarian happens so fast that the ending doesn't seen to be a ending at all. I was left with the impression that the books ends in a period of calm. There is no doubt in my mind that His Grace will start abusing her again. The child she gives him in the last chapter will probably be a victim too.

    My first read by this author,I ended up really enjoying this book more than I expected to.There was a section of this book that disturbed me,but I kept on reading and was glad that I did.Very nice grovel by the hero by the way.4****
