To his astonishment, Tresham found himself hiring the servant as his nurse. Jane Ingleby was far too bold for her own good.

Publisher's Summary

In this captivating novel, Mary Balogh, the premier writer of Regency romance, invites you into a world of scandal and seduction, of glittering high society and intrigue, as an arrogant duke does the unthinkable - he falls in love with his mistress.

She raced onto the green, desperate to stop a duel. In the mêlée, Jocelyn Dudley, Duke of Tresham, was shot. To his astonishment, Tresham found himself hiring the servant as his nurse. But Jane Ingleby was far too bold for her own good. Her blue eyes were the sort a man could drown in - were it not for her impudence. She questioned his every move, breached his secrets, touched his soul. When he offered to set her up in his London town house, love was the last thing on his mind.

Jane tried to pretend it was strictly business, an arrangement she was forced to accept in order to conceal a dangerous secret. Surely there was nothing more perilous than being the lover of such a man. Yet as she got past his devilish façade and saw the noble heart within, she knew the greatest jeopardy of all, a passion that drove her to risk everything on one perfect month with the improper gentleman who thought love was for fools.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "Enjoyable listen"

    The name and cover make this seem like a different type of book. There's sexy scenes, but the story is a "page turner". Great book. Worth the time and money!

    Reviews complaining about the narrator are blasphemy!! Rosalyn Landor is a pro for historical romance!! She's fantastic and narrates most of the truly excellent novels of the genre.

    "engaging and entertaining"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Adored this very clever and well-written story"

    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!

    "Ladies and Gents!"

    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.

    "Quite entertaining"

    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.

    "Slow, ... Is it the end yet?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A faster paced book, the story repeated over and over in the same book...


    What was most disappointing about Mary Balogh’s story?

    9 hours of repeat, the story was only 2 hours......


    What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is has one of the best voices for Historical/ Regency romances.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from More than a Mistress?

    9 hours of repeat


    Any additional comments?

    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

    "disappointing narration"

    I'm a big fan of this book, I've read it time & time again & in my head Tresham is urbane, arrogant, and very sexy. horror of horror the narrator has him sounding like an over 50 pompous leche! i haven't plucked up courage for the steamy beautifully written love scenes.........cringing at the thought of it!!!!! if this is the standard of narrator I think I'll be cancelling my membership sharpish
