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?

    Story
    "Tortured hero, Nurturing heroine"

    I enjoyed listening to this book. The narrator's voice seemed a little shrill at first but I had been listening to a narrator with a much lower voice before this book. The story seemed a bit disjointed but overall enjoyable.

    Story
    "Started out great..."
    What did you like best about One Dance with a Duke? What did you like least?

    I very much enjoyed the first half or so of the story. However, and as a female it galls me to say this, but the heroine at the end turned into the TSTL type, and the hero into the "everything is my fault" type, even when it wasn't his fault at all.


    What could Tessa Dare have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Write the female lead a little stronger and balance the story more.


    Which character – as performed by Leslie Bellair – was your favorite?

    St. Maur.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.

    "A fun diversion"

    A light and fun story, not to be taken seriously. There were some serious flaws in how life was depicted but I doubt historical accuracy was the point.

    "English as she is not spoken!!!!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Couldn't get past the appalling and frequent mispronunciations. Since when is palm pronounced 'pom' or taught pronounced 'tot'? And the list continues. A sweet story ruined by a poor performance

    If you could sum up One Dance with a Duke in three words, what would they be?

    Charming, sexy, delightful!

    Lorraine Heath or Jennifer Ashley's historicals

    No, but she's excellent.

    I was particularly moved when the heroine finally sent her brother away.

    "The narration ruined a great story."

    I'm really disappointed with the narrator I didn't like her at all no emotion no voice change for the different charters. The story on the other hand was great funny romantic the sex was believable I really enjoyed it still worth the listen even though the narrator was no good.

    I am a huge fan of romances and happy endings. I like books that take me away from everyday life and into the land of romance, some adventure and of course happy endings.

    "Love it!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of One Dance with a Duke to be better than the print version?

    Don't know


    What other book might you compare One Dance with a Duke to and why?

    Any of Mary Balogh's books I love them all.


    Which character ??? as performed by Leslie Bellair ??? was your favorite?

    Penelope


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I really liked the whole thing but when Spencer figured out what a special person she was and that he loved her was really good.

    I"m a audible addict. My eyes have gotten really bad so I really hadn't read much in the last 10 years until I discoverd books on CD and Audible. Now I'm a fiend. Other than audio books I enjoy my family, work and dabbling on the computer.

    The story was enchanging and very engrossing.. but it left me wanting more.

    too many ... I want to know what happened to Claudia, Jack and want to know who murdered Leo now.

    there are a few favorite scenes.. I love the humor of Amelia.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES..
