A man who will do anything to save a family estate is not going to be the most attractive hero. Tarquin is not only all that, but he is completely selfish and unable to grasp Juliana's feelings about anything.
She is so determined to fight him that she gets herself into ever more dangerous predicaments, and her campaign to reform the prostitutes takes up way too much time in the book which should rightfully have been spent with them getting to know each other and falling in love.
As for the 'love scenes' he is there for all of two seconds and then pulls out without so much as a kiss and walks off. It is evident this author does not like writing those parts of the book, in which case let us please use our imaginations rather than be so badly let down. By the time the book is half over all the love scenes vanish anyway.
He is a selfish man who moves people around like pieces on a chess board because he is wealthy and can do it. The idea of anyone loving him because of himself, and not because he is a Duke is totally thrown away. And the idea of them living happily ever after just does not ring true.
A much better book if it were half the length as well!
