Sum It Up!   If you need a good Sunday read and cannot decide, might I suggest The Ugly Duchess.   

How can she dare to imagine he loves her . . . when all London calls her The Ugly Duchess?
Theodora Saxby is the last woman anyone expects the gorgeous James Ryburn, heir to the Duchy of Ashbrook, to marry. But after a romantic proposal before the prince himself, even practical Theo finds herself convinced of her soon-to-be duke's passion.

Still, the tabloids give the marriage six months.

Theo would have given it a lifetime . . . until she discovers that James desired not her heart, and certainly not her countenance, but her dowry.
Society was shocked by their wedding . . . and is scandalized by their separation.  (Goodreads)

I really loved this book! It lifted me up out of a depressed mood and made giddy! We all know what it feels like to be insecure and down on our looks but it's even worse when others say the things we secretly think about ourselves. This was life for Theo until the sexy and charming James enters the scene and says all the right things and makes a proposal to die for! Then we find out the real reason for the proposal....her dowry. I wanted to climb into the story and slap James myself! It was a perfect moment for conflict and drama in the book and only made me want to read it faster to see if he could prove his love and worth or if it was all over.

The characters were well developed and easy to love (and hate, even if only for a moment, James). If you need a good Sunday read and cannot decide, might I suggest The Ugly Duchess....it was incredible!
