Publisher's Summary

“Delightful, dazzling, and oh-so delicious.” (Cheryl Bolen, NYT best-selling author)

A duke. A vicar’s daughter. A forbidden love.

Marriage - an unpleasant obligation.

A troublesome addendum to his father’s will requires Victor, duke of Sutcliffe, to marry before his 27th birthday or lose his fortune. After a three-year absence, he ventures home, intent upon finding the most biddable and forgettable miss in Essex. A woman who will make no demands upon him and won’t mind being left behind when he returns to London. Except Victor meets Theadosia Brentwood again and finds himself powerless to resist her - even if she is promised to another and the exact opposite of what he thought he wanted in a duchess.

Marriage - an impossible choice.

Secretly in love with Victor for years, Theadosia is overjoyed when he returns. Until she learns he must marry within mere weeks. When he unexpectedly proposes, she must make an impossible decision. How can Thea elope with him when he’s marrying out of necessity, not love? Besides, if she does wed Victor, her betrothed - a man she loathes - will reveal a scandalous secret. A secret that will send her father to prison and leave her sister and mother homeless.

Buy this pause-resisting audiobook for an emotional, entertaining, and romantic Regency England adventure you won’t want to put down.

Though this audiobook is part of a series, it can easily be listened to as a stand-alone novel.

TEN STARS

If it were possible I would give this novel TEN STARS! It is now ten minutes after five a.m. Even though I have a very busy day ahead, I have spent the night listening to ONLY A DUKE WOULD DARE! It is such a beguiling tale that I simply could not turn it off. Collette Cameron really nailed it this time. The story begins in a church graveyard when the heroine!, Theadosia hears groaning and heart rending groaning comments, but looking around can see no one. Being the kind hearted, sympathetic person she is, she goes looking for the person in such throws of grief or pain. She finally finds him and recognizes her old crush, Victor the Duke of Suffolk. He is drunk and sitting on the ground, leaning against his fathers grave stone. Since her very strict father is the Vicar of the adjoining church, she knows she is not for him. Her father came into the graveyard showing his new Curate around. Then the fun begins. She is in a very compromising situation, being alone without an escort, with a man. She is seen being kissed by Victor, the Duke, but she doesn't think her father saw the kiss.

After a short time of meeting Victor clandestinely, she realizes that she is in love with him. She also knows that he is planning to get married in August, but to whom he doesn't know. Then the intrigue begins!!! But you will have to read the book or the audiobook to get the rest of the story. It will be worth it. Stevie Zimmerman does a very good narration, she makes the book come alive. Collette Cameron, has another winner here.
