Destined to be a duke, Charles de Lacey, Lord Gresham, has led a life of decadent pleasure, free of any care for propriety or responsibility. It comes as a terrible shock to learn that he might be stripped of everything, thanks to his father's scandalous past. He has no choice but to find the blackmailer who would ruin him - and his only link to the villain is a woman who may be part of the plot. To save his fortune and title, Charles vows to stop at nothing - in fact, he's all too eager to unravel the beautiful, tart-tongued Tessa Neville. She intrigues him and tempts him like no other lady ever has. With only his heart to guide him, and keenly aware that his entire future is at stake, Charles must decide: Is she the woman of his dreams or an enemy in disguise? Contains mature themes.

"The engaging characters keep readers interest and it is satisfying to reach the end of the de Lacey brothers' quest." (RT Book Reviews)
I am someone who needs to read a series to the conclusion. This book was OK, not the best, but far from the worst I have listened to. I am just saying that of the three books in this series, this is the weakest story line. It's redeeming qualities are that it tied up the loose ends of a story line that carried nicely through this series of three stories about three brothers. The characters were engaging, but their story was mediocre. However, I was glad to hear Charlie's story. If I had to do it again, I would read this series. Linden's stories entertain me.
I loved this! Best book of the series and a great way to end the story of the DeLacey brothers. Charlie and Tessa were very likable characters and they had good chemistry. The story was extremely interesting and didn't falter at all. The previous books each had a tendency to slow down about half way through. I didn't want this one to end. I still have issues with the narration. His female voices are awful! But he was better with this book than the previous two.
Yes, although I enjoyed the series in print, this brought it to life.
The story is somewhat unique compared to other romances, uses a few typical plot devices but in general is original. it compares to the first two books in the series.
I loved having a male narrator for this series. It works best for books centered on men and the deep voices are more enticing. The problem is that the narrator could not act the female parts. For all the books in the series the women sound like 40 or 50 year old matrons. Even the little girl in the first book in the series sounded too mature. I also was hoping for more involvement with the other brothers and their spouses. Producers should consider hiring two actors to read.
I had no extreme reactions but I did feel for both main characters, both for the male and his difficult relationship with his father and the female who, like many other women of her time, had to hide her brains.
If you like romance novels the series and performance is worth your time, despite the female voices being disappointing.
