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.

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.

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...

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.

Good story but weird resolution...

It just wrapped up too neatly with loose ends. It's like everyone just learned their lesson from a magic wand.

Hmmm not sure

Having a difficult time rating this one. I have always liked Tressa Dare's female heroines but this one left me slightly cold. Amelia was a bit of a tease. The whole idea that she suddenly thought Spencer was the killer doesn't wash. Also she is pretty selfish. I didn't buy the whole *do anything for her family* thing. I think it was more about her loss of control over everyone. Her total devotion to her brother Jack was more about her trying to control Jack and the fact she wanted him to live his life as SHE saw fit. Yes, Jack was a loser, but he was also a grown man who was only using Amelia as a bank for his gambling. If Amelia admitted Jack was a loser she would lose control of him.

Spencer was actually too good for her and he should have dumped her.

🌻An Ok listen but, not a great listen!🌻

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻V from Kansas 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

I had found myself in a audio book rut. I have over 1000 books, in my library, and also have access to everything included in the Escape Package and I couldn’t choose a book. Therefore, I decided to pick a historical romance. It had been a long time since I read or listened to a Historical romance and I started two and immediately returned them due to the terrible narration. Apparently, third time was the charm for I was able to complete this book.

This book wasn’t exceptionally exciting, unpredictable, sexually explicit or an emotional roller coaster. However, I shed a couple of tears and chuckled a bit too. There also wasn’t any great revelations, the book was really quite average. It was a change of pace and that’s what I was looking for, today. Worth a credit? Maybe, although I’d hold out for a sale!
