The rumor is up, and the banns are read: The Dissolute Duke has finally wed!
With a name synonymous with sin and debauchery so shocking it is spoken of only in whispers, Taylen Ellesmere, Duke of Alderworth, is more surprised than anyone when he finds himself forced to marry! Before the ink is dry on the register, he turns his back on this sham of a marriage and leaves.
Three years later, having barely survived the scandal, Lady Lucinda has placed one delicately shod foot back in the hallowed halls of the ton when her husband returns. He has an offer she can't refuse. And in exchange? Their wedding night!

This was a very good story, and the narration was amazing! I love Carolyn Morris' narrations.
I really enjoyed the hero Taylen very much. He was damaged, but kind. He was sexy, smart and handsome. I liked Lucinda too, she was a strong female heroine. She made a little mistake in her memory LOL but it worked out. These two made a great couple. The chemistry was good and felt real and not forced. There is a nicely written sex scene, not over the top or crude.
The story line was good and I enjoyed it. No real mysteries or villains or anything like that really. Just a good story. There was lots of dialogue throughout the entire book, which was great.
As for the narration. Well Carolyn Morris is one of my very very very favorite narrators for historical romance books. She does a good job on the male voices, everyone gets their own distinct voice and her reading voice is so nice to listen too. She reads with emotion as called for. Just love her!
