Publisher's Summary

Destiny will be decided betweenthe sheets in this all-new tale of “The Princess and the Pea.”

For Olivia Lytton, betrothal to the Duke of Canterwick - hardly a Prince Charming - feels more like a curse than a happily-ever-after. At least his noble status will help her sister, Georgiana, secure an engagement with the brooding, handsome Tarquin, Duke of Sconce,a perfect match for her in every way... every way but one. Tarquin has fallen in love with Olivia.

Quin never puts passion before reason. And reason says that Georgiana is his ideal bride. But the sensual, fiery, strong-willed Olivia ignites an unknown longing in him - a desire they are both powerless to resist.

When a scandalous affair begins, they risk losing everything - Olivia’s engagement, her sister’s friendship, and their own fragile love. Only one thing can save them - and it awaits in the bedroom, where a magnificent mattress holds life-changing answers to the greatest romantic riddle of all.

    "Exhausting"

    I love EJ but this story was hard to finish. The reader made it bearable.

    "She's a funny heroin"
    Where does The Duke Is Mine rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    She has so many "foot in mouth" moments that brings a chuckle to your lips. There is also a fair share of tearful moments as well. very good story.

    "Loved it!"

    The story was original and well performed. Olivia was a wonderful heroine, who was portrayed as having the spunk and skills to be a duchess. It was a believable and enjoyable listen.

    "James writes smart historical romances"

    I think Eloisa James is among my favourite historical romance novelists. Her writing is smart, funny, and I'm never disappointed. This addition to her fairy tales is fantastic. Her characters come to life so easily in our imaginations with her descriptions and the way she makes them interact with one another. I would recommend this one in a heartbeat.

    "Very cute story"
    Have you listened to any of Susan Duerden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't think so. I have only bought Eloisa James paperback books and still have them.


    Any additional comments?

    Love Elosia James books. Her fairy tale romances are not as gripping as her previous novels, but are a nice change. Sometimes you enjoy a bit of fluff to read. Very intertaining. I think it is worth a try.

    Story
    "Not your typical romance...but Good!"
    If you could sum up The Duke Is Mine in three words, what would they be?

    Excellent narration! Characters!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The 'mentally challenged' son was compelling and complex.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Duerden – was your favorite?

    The father of the mentally challenged son had an excellent voice. I could TOTALLY picture him, as if he were on stage or in a film!


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

    When the main female character was comforting the dying soldier in France. She was very loving and compassionate in a situation that she could have ignored or even been more relieved about.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is unique...not a typical romance. Parts of it were funny. There was an excellent spectrum of emotion and the narration was absolutely outstanding!

    This was a good book, although there were some lulls in it, this is her twist on the princess and the pea!
