Only her desire...
After losing his wife in childbirth, Colin Barrett, Duke of Northrop, does not trust healers. So when he discovers Selina White cleansing his home, he is livid. As duke, Colin is accustomed to his charges taking orders from him. But the fiery Selina has the audacity to defy him when he asks her to leave his lands. More infuriating, he cannot stop thinking about the seductive sway of her hips when she walks.
Can heal his heart....
The sick tenants of Northrop Park depend on Selina, and she's not about to let a man tell her she must leave her village - even if he is a duke. And while Selina does not fear Colin's temper, she is afraid of the secrets she keeps from him and of the desire he sets off in her every time he is near.

This was a decent story. The hero and heroine were good, had some good chemistry a few nicely written sex scenes. There was a lot of dialogue in this book, which I liked. I liked the secondary characters.
However there was not much substance to the story, no mystery or anything like that. One secret you found out about at the end, but no OMG moments at all.
I do like the writing style so I will listen to the next book and hope it is a bit more exciting than this one.
As for the narration it was not the best, but not the worst. She did make the men sound like men, but she made the heroine sound really bored a lot of the time.
BEWITCHING THE DUKE was an entertaining story with interesting characters. The main characters were okay. I liked the way Selina was able to bring the Duke out of the darkness but some of the writing and situations seemed contrived and some even too modern for the time period. The secondary characters were even more intriguing and I look forward to listening to the subsequent books in this series.
I had no negative reaction to the narration and, actually, the book itself was average - neither bad nor extremely excellent. An entertaining if predictable story.
