Publisher's Summary

Victoria has a secret....

Reclusive designer Victoria Andrews hasn't gone outside in five years, though she yearns to escape the prison of her house. She designs sensual lingerie for the most exclusive dressmaker in London, although she has never known a man's touch.

A Duke in disguise....

Wounded and stranded in Scotland, Jonathan Nottoway, the Duke of Worthingstone, is avoiding the murderous scandal that darkened his family name. As his wounds heal, he spends several sensual nights with the beautiful seamstress who knows nothing of his true identity.

A passionate awakening....

Can a woman trapped by her emotional scars be able to love a duke, when it means abandoning her safe world to embrace the life of a duchess?

    Any additional comments?

    The story had many repetitious thoughts that went through the main character's heads over and over and o v e r. The narrator also had one tone throughout the story. She almost sounded like she was so sad she was about to burst into a good cry at any point. The story would have been better about four hours shorter with the necessary cuts and a different narrator. I cannot recommend this book in good conscience. Buy it at your own risk.

    Story
    "Kill the music"

    First of all, what's with the music?! At the beginning and the end it was too loud and too long. Very distracting and poorly produced. A shame to ruin the author's work in such a manner.

    This started out so well. The injured Jonathan being cared for by Victoria, the time they spent together, his Christmas presents - all made for a great story. His attempts to break her of her agoraphobia were sweet. But as the book progressed the situations were odd and the ending felt a bit flat.

    It wasn't bad. I will continue with the series.

    Story
    "Narrator is aweful."

    Sue Pitkin reads as if she has a mouthful of spit she can't swallow. I imagine the microphone she's reading into has . . . well, you get the idea. I don't know if this is a good book or not. I've tried to listen to it three times, and have given up every time.

    I will not buy anything read by Sue Pitkin again, but plan on trying to read this book on my Kindle.

    "super fun read"

    Wonderful story, great characters. Perfect chemistry, and good timing make the heated scenes even better! It didn't feel like Victoria was weak, but that she had a real ailment. She showed bravery in many situations, as well as intelligence and composure, while Jonathan was respectful, yet battling with his own heavy issues. Oh and fantastic ending. I was confused as to where it could go and then it got both thrilling and satisfying. Had a fun time listening to this.
    As for the performance: sue pitkin does a nice job, she does men well and doesn't overact young woman by doing high voices, which can be terribly annoying. She does a great job on her inflections, and doesn't over enunciate, the way I might read it in my head. People have given the reader harsh criticism in the reviews, however I think these are unwarranted. The performance was solid.

    "Slow.......Dark.......Unhappy Characters"
    What disappointed you about Undone by the Duke?

    If your life is just TOO happy and you need a come down try this book. It is too dark for a romance. The only uplifting part was in the epilogue.

    "Engaging Heart Warming Romance"
    Where does Undone by the Duke rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I gave Undone by the Duke 4 out of 5 stars on my book list, four is a really good rating it means I really liked it. I would listen again sometime.


    What did you like best about this story?

    What I liked best about this story was that it grabbed me from the very begging. Two people with issues that need to be over come. I also liked that it wasn't overly predictable like many other romance novels.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene in the book is Christmas and Jonathan wraps gift for them to open.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    He thought he was saving her but really she was saving him.
