William, the sixth Duke of Pelham, enjoys his punctual, securely structured life. Orderly and predictable-that's the way he likes it. But he's in the public eye, and the scandal sheets will make up anything to sell papers. When the gossips link him to Juliette, one of the most beautiful and celebrated courtesans in London, chaos doesn't begin to describe what happens next....
Juliette is nicknamed the Duchess of Dalliance, and has the cream of the nobility at her beck and call. It's seriously disruptive to have the duke who's the biggest catch on the Marriage Mart scaring her other suitors away. Then she discovers William's darkest secret and decides what he needs in his life is the kind of excitement only she can provide....

This is a personal pet peeve of mine, but as soon as I heard the narrator's American accent for a an English romance, I stopped listening. Since this was a pre-order and I was not familiar with this narrator, I took a chance. I won't make that mistake again. I also cancelled my pre-order of the second book in the audio series as it's read by the same narrator.
This is such a fun series! I wish they had more of Shana Galen's books on audio! Can't wait to listen to If You Give a Rake A Ruby!
Graduated college, got a job, got married, traveled, had children. Breathing air and growing hair.
I thought this book had an unique plot. I was intrigued and glad I bought this story. The writing was excellent. I will look for the next book in the series. The main characters were described so vividly this provided extra depth to the book. Although I listened to the sample I think the Britspeak disappeared except when there was dialogue. This did not bother me overmuch as I was so enthralled by the story. This will not win any awards for narration but to me well worth the listen. Check out an audio sample if you are on the fence. The narrator's voice quality is very nice.
I love reading and listening to books and I hardly want to do anything else. I prefer fantasy & mystery books but I'll read anything...
Yes, I didn't want to stop listening. I did want to beat the male character but you know men are just stupid anyway.
This was a great story: murder, mystery and romance. Loved Will and Juliette. Loved Fallon and Lily. Loved Warrick. Would have hated Will's father if he hadn't been dead. Lucifer was just evil and I wonder where he went and if he'll be back. The story itself was as entertaining as any book I've ever read as I do get tired of just a love story and nothing else. This book had it all. And lots of great sex too.
As to the narrator? Loved her. She did a fantastic job with every voice. One reviewer didn't like that she read without an English accent then did the accent when someone spoke. I absolutely loved that she did that because you knew exactly when someone spoke. She was awesome! I can't wait for her to hear her again.
