Simon Basset, the irresistible Duke of Hastings, has hatched a plan to keep himself free from the town's marriage-minded society mothers. He pretends to be engaged to the lovely Daphne Bridgerton. After all, it isn't as if the brooding rogue has any real plans to marry - though there is something about the alluring Miss Bridgerton that sets Simon's heart beating a bit faster.
And as for Daphne, surely the clever debutante will attract some very worthy suitors now that it seems a duke has declared her desirable. But as Daphne waltzes across ballroom after ballroom with Simon, she soon forgets that their courtship is a complete sham. And now she has to do the impossible and keep herself from losing her heart and soul completely to the handsome hell-raiser who has sworn off marriage forever!

Love conquers all.
The overall story: The old Duke's loss because of his pride. The results from the young Earl living his life for revenge against his father, the Duke; even after he is gone. A secret sham marriage proposal between the young Duke and his best friends sister.
I have enjoyed Ms. Landor's narrations many times. They were all excellent.
The folly of pride and revenge.
Well written and narrated, well worth a credit.
Say something about yourself!
I love to listen to books but this book was not on the Audible. So I had to read it on my Kindle, I was 48% in it when today I had this surprise, The duke and I on Audible at last
