Publisher's Summary

A handsome and reclusive horse breeder, Spencer Dumarque, the fourth Duke of Morland, is a member of the exclusive Stud Club, an organization so select it has only 10 members - yet membership is attainable to anyone with luck. And Spencer has plenty of it, along with an obsession with a prize horse, a dark secret, and, now, a reputation as the dashing "Duke of Midnight." Each evening he selects one lady for a breathtaking midnight waltz. But none of the women catch his interest, and nobody ever bests the duke - until Lady Amelia d'Orsay tries her luck. 

In a moment of desperation, the unconventional beauty claims the duke's dance and unwittingly steals his heart. When Amelia demands that Spencer forgive her scapegrace brother's debts, she never imagines that her game of wits and words will lead to breathless passion and a steamy proposal. Still, Spencer is a man of mystery, perhaps connected to the shocking murder of the Stud Club's founder. Will Amelia lose her heart in this reckless wager or win everlasting love? 

Contains mature themes.

My favorite Tessa Dare book.

First of all,I purchased the audio mainly because of it being narrated by Justine Eyre. She’s one of my top three readers. The other two being Mary Jane Wells and Susan Duerden.
I liked the development of the two main characters in ODWTD. Their chemistry was perfect. The story never dragged.
I just wish that the other two books in this series were narrated by Justine Eyre.

Too much sex... Sex doesn't mean romance.

Too much sex... Sex doesn't mean romance so when this book had sex in almost every chapter it was way too much. Once or twice in a book is fine but this was ridiculous. It was so predictable that I felt like I could have written it...

McNaught-ish

It’s obvious that Ms. Dare has not yet found her comedic niche in this earlier work. While there are parts that made me smile, particularly the early scenes at the ball, they’re not the laugh-out-loud hilarity of her latest books. The book is well written with properly-developed characters if a bit over-dramatic in the end. I see influences of Judith McNaught in both hero and heroine and in the conflict and grovel.

Justine Eyre’s narration is fine.

Fire whatever ghostwriter put these words to paper

The title speaks for itself, the title for this review not the title for the book. The connection of the story to the title of the book is tenuous at best and the kindest thing I can say about this book is I truly feel that this was some passionless ghost writer who was never heard from again after delivering this swill up for your listening displeasure.

This was pretty decent

I will not lie...Amelia pissed me off sooo much. She refused to see reason. I know family is everything, but sometimes you have to let a person hit rock bottom for them to learn anything. I'm glad things worked out in the end.

Too much of the brother

I gave the story three stars mainly because of the repeated issues with the brother. The repeated fights she had with her husband about her brother got old very quickly and diminished the storyline for me. The narrator was good except for Spensers voice. I have no idea what accent she was aiming for but she failed miserably, it was AWFUL! I’m going try to book 2 in this series.

Blah!!!

This was NOT Tessa Dare's best. The couple constantly fought ... about everything and anyhing!! And it was very annoyng and did zero for the storyline. And the Duke was annoying and rather insipid! There are much better books by Tessa Dare. Pass on this one!!!!!

One dance leads to…

The story was a little disappointing for me. Mainly because I found the Duke too bossy and Amelia too insecure, and at times it was disjointed. I wish the ending would have been different and the characters needed more development. But all in all, it was an interesting story.
