Handsome, dashing Henry Wright, the Duke of Westerland, needed a wife in a desperately short period of time. If he could not find a wife, he would lose the legacy he so desperately desired.
Young, lovely, but sheltered Miss Frederica Sayers needed a husband just as much as Henry Wright needed a wife, only she needed a husband to save her from the life of shame that almost certainly awaited her when shefled the callous cruelty of her family.
Marriage between the dashing lord and this reckless runaway was clearly the answer for both of them - until the duke discovered he had a duchess he could not tame and the duchess found that she would rather lose her spotless reputation than lose the duke to another beautiful woman who was everything she was not.

This book was published in 1979, which you don't learn until the closing credits, but I wasn't surprised. The hero and heroine are married early in the story, but they spend almost no time together. An enemy is conspiring to keep them apart and the H/H succumb to almost every lie. Both were guilty of too stupid too live behavior throughout.
I did listen till the end, but probably won't again.
