Captain Maximus Harcourt, the unconventional tenth Duke of Alderidge, can deal with tropical storms, raging seas, and the fiercest of pirates. But he's returned home from his latest voyage to find a naked earl - quite inconveniently deceased - tied to his missing sister's bed. And he has only one place to turn. Now he's at the mercy of the captivating Miss Ivory Moore of Chegarre & Associates, known throughout London for smoothing over the most dire of scandals.

The reader didn’t do a great job on the voices and the book itself wasn’t that great either. I like the way they portrayed the Dutches as not needing saving but more action portraying that and less coming right out and saying it would have been better. Glad the writer didn’t give in on the ending. Only reason I gave it 3 stars.

Welcome to a world of reckless sensuality and glittering sophistication, of dangerously handsome gentlemen and young ladies longing to gain a title, of games played for high stakes, including - on occasion - a lady's virtue. A marquess's sheltered only daughter, Lady Roberta St. Giles, falls in love with a man she glimpses across a crowded ballroom: a duke, a game player of consummate skill, a notorious rakehell who shows no interest in marriage, until he lays eyes on Roberta.

Description leads buyer to believe the story is centered around one character, but far too much time is spent around Gemma (sp?) and chess making the story slllooooowww. Returned the book 1/2 way through to get something else.

The story was ok, what really made me dislike it was the sound effects (like the constant rain) & the song they kept playing. The book also has soooo much repetition in the dialogue. Gets old after awhile.

Mal Ericson, drummer for the world-famous rock band Stage Dive, needs to clean up his image fast - at least for a little while. Having a good girl on his arm should do the job just fine. Mal doesn't plan on this temporary fix becoming permanent, but he didn't count on finding the one right girl. Anne Rollins never thought she'd ever meet the rock god who plastered her teenage bedroom walls - especially not under these circumstances. Anne has money problems. Big ones. But being paid to play the pretend girlfriend to a wild life-of-the-party drummer couldn't end well.

Would you listen to Play again? Why?

I will definitely listen again. The author made both characters so interesting & did a great job with making Mal sweet & just "out there" enough so you couldn't help but crack up laughing. Well done! Really likable characters & she kept the heroine real-ish.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Oh hands down Mal. It's not often an author captures a quirky character so well & consistently.

What about Andi Arndt’s performance did you like?

She read the story well & I think she got the characters enough not to detract from the story, however it was hard sometimes to tell the difference between a deep-voiced Ann and a deep voiced Mal.

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

Pumpkin!
