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.”

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.

I did not like Clare.

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.

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.

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!

Horrible heroine!

I agree with other reviewers. The heroine was so unlikeable it was difficult to enjoy what is a good story. Without cause she was negative, disagreeable, selfish, and suspicious throughout the entire book. I so wanted Edward to send her packing so she would suffer the consequences for her silly attempts to cause him embarrassment. He deserved someone better who wanted to marry him and not act out because of something she overheard him say when she was 16. He was a bit of a weakling praising her for her antics rather than correcting her behavior. I knew it wasn’t going to happen but I was hoping for death when she got shot. I don’t understand why the author made the heroine such a horrible person. Because of this i recommend skipping this book (#3) in the series.

Painful. Painfully exasperating <br />

Loved the narrator but could not finish this irritating story of selfishness, and completely juvenile behavior by the heroine. Nauseating...Ned should be eligible for sainthood...how he loves someone so infuriatingly self-absorbed and blind...even towards the end.....is beyond my understanding. They say love is blind but is it deaf too?

Not my favourite Tracy Anne Warren

In this book I did'nt like the main caracters as much as in the other storys and that's the reason for only 4 stars. The narrator however did an excellent job as always! Love her!

She’s a stinker

I finished it but I am afraid to look in the mirror for fear my face is stuck in a lopsided grimace of disgust. The female character was wholly unlikable - spoiled, inconsiderate, dramatic and reckless - her sophomoric yearning for ‘twue wuv’ at the expense of decency, kindness, compassion and self-preservation made me want to deliver a head smack. Sadly, I was the on the receiving end of said smack at the conclusion of the book where confessions of love sent me into glycemic paroxysm. And she was never held responsible for stupid, thoughtless, selfish actions. Noooo...she gets Harlequin-esque avowals of love and devotion. Blech.
I like a lighthearted historical romance if it is heavy on humor and wit. This supplied none of that but a whole lot of sexy business that was hyperbolic soft porn. I am really tired of virgins achieving climax the first-time rolling in the sheets. I would rather listen to paint dry than endure another story with such a historically inaccurate and shallow mc.

An inane waste of time in an otherwise good series

So far I’ve listened to the first and last in this series, which both combined a suspenseful undercover intelligence plot along with hot romance and were both great listens. However, the author must have been going through a dry spell when she wrote this one because she fell back on fatuous, frivolous, inane social niceties and gossip for fillers while following the self-centered antics of a spoiled heroine who’s trying to wriggle out of an arranged marriage because her handsome, considerate, tolerant, attentive, generous and very wealthy fiance hasn’t yet said, “I love you.” He does finally say it in the last chapter. She gets her HEA and, thankfully, the story is over!

Heroine is too stupid

I tried but there was nothing redeeming about this heroine. I had to bale with 4 hours remaining.
