Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Madeline Hunter comes the latest sexy tale of three untamable dukes and the women who ignite their decadent desires....

He may be a devil....

He's infamous, debaucherous, and known all over town for his complete disregard for scandal, and positively irresistible seductions. Gabriel St. James, Duke of Langford, is obscenely wealthy, jaw-droppingly handsome, and used to getting exactly what he wants. Until his attention is utterly captured by a woman who refuses to tell him her name, but can't help surrendering to his touch....

But she's no angel either....

Amanda Waverly is living two lives - one respectable existence as secretary to an upstanding lady, and one far more dangerous battle of wits - and willpower - with the devilish Duke. Langford may be the most tempting man she's ever met, but Amanda's got her hands full trying to escape the world of high-society crime into which she was born. And if he figures out who she really is, their sizzling passion will suddenly boil over into a much higher stakes affair....

Fun+ Exciting= great

Where does A Devil of a Duke rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's at the top, more for the narrator. RL does such a great job with all the voices, I can't believe how quickly the time went by.
The story was exciting. It's nice to have both h/h be smart and practical. and do things that make sense. There was no real miscommunication or a lot of angst, so you can just enjoy the events in the story. I liked the dialogue, as it was witty and there was lots of it ( not just a lot of internal monologues)

Who was your favorite character and why?

My Fav was Lord Stratton. He is from an earlier book, but works so well here as a side-kick. He is funny and really loving with his wife. Nice to have an update on their story.
I think when the 3 friends are together and making fun of each other it's the best. I have 2 brothers and when we are together it's very similar.....lots of teasing.

Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favorite?

Rosalyn Landor is in a league of her own. She is the best narrator and I will buy a book just to hear her read it. I can't imagine the work involved in creating all the voices, so that even when several people have dialogue, you can tell who is speaking. She is a treasure and can make any book better. With her it's really a "performance" as the characters come to life. I can't write enough to indicate my appreciation for her talent.
If this book was read by a less skilled narrator, it would not have done it justice. She is one of the few that could have pulled off the scenes where 3 men of similar age, education and rank were speaking. Each had their own speech pattern, so no confusion.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The most moving part was when Amanda described the last time she saw her father. You can tell she was crushed by this and her life really changed afterwards.
The story sparkles when both characters expose their inner pain. You can tell there was real development in them and their feelings for each other. Learning about characters and their back story draws a reader into the plot. Lots of authors don't write details that make you care about what happens to a character, but this story has lots of those moments.

Any additional comments?

I did not expect to like this book as much as I did. I know the fact that they get together is probably out of the norm for that era, so not very true to life, but the story was enjoyable. I can't wait for the next one in the series and of course anything in between that is read by Rosalyn Landor!

ok

kinda silly. but I listened because Rosalyn Landor narrated it and I kept waiting for it to get better to no avail. Too bad because it never got better. oh well, c'est LA vie in the unfamiliar author world .

Great!

I like the way Madeleine writes. Her stories have a plot and aren’t just intense “romance”. Roselyn Lander is such a good narrator, I always like listening to her. Cute story and a happy ending.

I’m Sorry Madeline,

I couldn’t even get to the third chapter. I’m a big fan, have every book of hers but I couldn’t stand this series.
