This is my first book by Mary Balogh and I must say I loved the push and pulls between the duke and Jane in this book. The two main characters fall in love, though initially both refuse to admit to it. Unlike most other books, here the arguments and strong personalities keeps the story more engaging and therefore the interactions and love scenes more intense. The duke's inability to accept his likes and wants makes him very mercurial in nature. Though a typical historical romance the behavior of the characters keep you guessing all the way to the end and so I loved this book and recommend it fully.
I truly enjoyed this book. Rosalyn Landor is an excellent narrator. I liked this book so much I actually downloaded the second one and am, yes going to download the third. If you like good romance and a good story I definitely recommend this series.

Avid reader and Audio books listener
A faster paced book, the story repeated over and over in the same book...
9 hours of repeat, the story was only 2 hours......
She is has one of the best voices for Historical/ Regency romances.
9 hours of repeat
I am not sure I want to attempt any more of her books, her writing style was not for me. However some other readers may love her style of writing. Mine opinion is just that. My opinion
Look it was so easy to listen to. The characters are wonderful and narration was just right. Can't wait for the next book.
How fun this was - i did not want it to end. Excellent character development, perfect witty rake, good twists and turns to the story - worth a credit for sure. just make sure you dont have anything else better to do once you start - difficult to put down!
Day dreaming book lover!
I laughed and I cried. What more do you want from a romance?! The narrator convinced me that there was more than one character speaking and it was easy to identify who was speaking. If you want a suspenseful romance, this is it.
Rosalyn Landor could make every story a good story. This romantic and sexy story of Jane and her Duke is a delight to listen to. All those fine people, so pure and of high morales with tip top servants all around is fine and of course there love is fantastic in the end.
I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
I loved the characters in this story. I like it when the female protagonist is strong, yet able to be tender. And the villain is so very hateful that you want to choke him. Jane is brave and Tresham romantic and unwilling to fall in love. Of course there is always the HEA in a romance novel, but getting there was quite entertaining. And having Rosalyn Landor for narration made it even more enjoyable.
