Publisher's Summary

In One Dance with a Duke, the first novel in Tessa Dare's delightful new trilogy, secrets and scandals tempt the irresistible rogues of the Stud Club to gamble everything for love.

A handsome and reclusive horse breeder, Spencer Dumarque, the fourth Duke of Morland, is a member of the exclusive Stud Club, an organization so select it has only 10 members - yet membership is attainable to anyone with luck. And Spencer has plenty of it, along with an obsession with a prize horse, a dark secret, and, now, a reputation as the dashing "Duke of Midnight". Each evening he selects one lady for a breathtaking midnight waltz. But none of the women catch his interest, and nobody ever bests the duke - until Lady Amelia d'Orsay tries her luck.

In a moment of desperation, the unconventional beauty claims the duke's dance and unwittingly steals his heart. When Amelia demands that Spencer forgive her scapegrace brother's debts, she never imagines that her game of wits and words will lead to breathless passion and a steamy proposal. Still, Spencer is a man of mystery, perhaps connected to the shocking murder of the Stud Club's founder. Will Amelia lose her heart in this reckless wager - or win everlasting love?

    "Loved it!!!"

    I will definitely add Tessa Dare to my list of authors that I love!!! It was romantic and had a great storyline. I finished it too quickly.

    I bought this from the sale page and didn't listen to it for a few weeks...sorry I didn't!!! This book was surprisingly good with strong female characters and a few twists from the normal. Worth the listen!!

    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!

    "Great romance"

    I did enjoy the telling of "One Dance With a Duke." For those of us who enjoy the occasional romance, this was a lovely story and telling. I will admit that even I was slightly annoyed by the main characters constant "misunderstanding" of her love interested, but overall enjoyed the story and would recommend it to other readers who enjoy a light-hearted romance. I think I will continue with the series.

    "More sex than romance or story"

    Which, if that what your looking for, is fairly well described. But I would have liked more story.

    "Strong characters and narration..."

    Wonderful story . Fantastic, strong characters that'll stay with you for a long time. I was so sad when the book came to an end. I definitely will be looking for more written by Tessa Dare.
    Narration by Leslie Bellair was impeccable too. Well done! Don't hesitate.
    A word of advice though... Do not listen to this with children in earshot.

    "Passable"

    I have never read anything by Tessa Dare, so I had no expectations when I bought this book, except the blurb looked interesting.
    I don't like to give up on books, so I made myself continue to the end, but...
    This narrator's was pleasant to the ear, but almost monotone for the lack of distinction of characters - much less, distinct voices for men and women! This made it hard to follow the story line - at least for me.
    I know this is a trilogy, so things must be carried over, so we want to read the next books, but still!
    These characters are so lacking! I kept wanting them to, "grow up and get a job!" (I do know that was rather forbidden for members of the aristocracy, but life would have been better!)
    Also, both the hero and heroine kept making, and repeating, silly, immature mistakes.
    So, no. I don't think I will be purchasing more of the Stud Club books, and probably not any more by Ms. Dare, or by this narrator.

    "Narration could have been better"

    Struggled with the Narrator. No clear distinction between characters and narrative. Very little inflection. She made the listen very difficult! :(
