Publisher's Summary

Tracy Anne Warren is making big waves with her “mad, bad, and dangerous to know” Byrons of Braebourne, the wickedly compelling family first introduced in Tempted by His Kiss and revisited in Seduced by His Touch. At the Duke’s Pleasure is Warren’s sexiest, most winning romantic Byron misadventure to date - an arranged-marriage-gone-awry winner combining the deft humor and stunning sensuality of Victoria Alexander with delightfully human and unforgettable upper-crust characters reminiscent of Julia Quinn. 

Romantic Times Book Reviews raves, “[Warren’s] gift for creating very sexy, poignant romances should endear her to readers - and ensure their reading pleasure all night long.”

I did not like Clare.<br />

Clare was a spoiled idiot from the beginning of her interaction with Ed to the very end of the story. She was insecure and childish.

Ed should have kicked her to the curb.

Great narrator, HORRIBLE HEROINE

I'll say I love this narrator, and that is the only saving grace of this experience. Hated the heroine from the beginning. Fast forwarded through much of the book after she started her antics. Especially everytime she wondered and doubted the Duke, which was in fact, a large portion of the book. The "I love him too much (um, you don't even KNOW him, you've met him at birth and once when you were 10 and then once at 16??) to marry him if he doesn't love me back, (before he's even gotten to know me AT ALL) so I'm going to proceed to be too stupid too live" plot line was just so immature and ridiculous and EXHAUSTING. My eyes almost got stuck in the position of being rolled back in my head. The heroine is not interesting, not very smart, their relationship wasn't based on anything of substance and



*spoiler alert*



I was happy she got shot at the end. Too bad she pulled through. The Duke could have found a better ADULT wife. I have no doubt that if you could look forward into their fictional future she will still be doubting him on her death bed.

Fantastic! Loved Edward and Clare’s Story!

“The sense of duty is not love but, love is a sense of duty we protect”tmg.

Edward and Clare’s story begins when Edward is introduced to a girl baby and told she is his betrothed. One night when the girl child Clare was 16 years old Edward comes for a visit and Clare over hears a conversation between Edward and a courtesan regarding his true feelings for his betrothed. Clare although in love with Edward decides she will not marry Edward EVER! So when Edward comes to claim his betrothed a few years later—all hell breaks out and the battle between duty and Love well, let’s just say: only one can be a winner!

I enjoyed Edward and Clare story. The 3rd book in the Byron series didn’t disappoint! The narrator was again excellent in her performance and Tracy Anne Warren can truly spin a tale. 5 Stars all the way!

Loved it but these ladies are too insecure!

I absolutely love these books in the series written by Tracy and Warren. They are romantic they’re funny they’re playful but it drives me crazy when these women are so insecure toward the end of the book I don’t know what they need to realize that these men love them. I wish they would just come out and ask these men. But it won’t stop me from reading the next one

Agonizing!!!!

I loved Edward’s personality. His bride in contrast was an extremely childish person with disregard to her amazing fiancé. Her behavior didn’t make any sense and I almost dropped the book altogether. The book was too long and didn’t really advance anywhere. The plot was so thin that I had to skip ahead. Clair was childish and stupid until the last scene. Hope the next book in the series will be better.

Difficult heroine

I found it hard to like the heroine in this book. She was too immature and insecure and her games made me want to wish the hero would send her back home. Still an interesting story and I finished it but my least favorite of this series by far.

Narrator is great.

I love a good steamy novel. This is interesting and steamy but if the narrator's voice distracts me I will move on. Her voice is perfected and I will follow that voice all over Audible!

Very nice

Better than the second book in the series. The plot wasn’t strong but the female characters were. I was hoping for a more unique story but it was still quite fun to read.

Wasn’t my favorite

I felt like she was going overboard with her attempts at getting out of the marriage. It would’ve been nice to see her use that energy and effort into making him love her. Book 1 was best and book 2 was better than this. Good but not wonderful.
