Publisher's Summary

After five years on the Marriage Mart, Miss Aquilla Knox is ready for spinsterhood until a benefactress steps in to help her secure a husband. Only Aquilla doesn't actually want to marry - her failure is entirely on purpose. When the earl she's nicknamed the Duke of Deception sets his sights on her, she refuses to be drawn in by her attraction to him. If there's one thing she knows, it's that a gentleman is never what he seems.

Edward Bishop, Earl of Sutton, has a reputation for courting young misses and dropping them without a second thought. This has earned him a reputation for deceit, a description he can't refute because he does in fact, harbor secrets and will do anything - deceive anyone - to ensure they don't come to light. As he comes to know the charming Miss Knox, his resolve is tested. However, trust comes at a price and Ned won't pay with his heart.

    "Great read and listen.."



    Of the three Untouchables books I’ve listened to and read this was my favorite one. Darcy Burke handled the insanity of George very well, and the subject of Bedlam. I liked every character in this book: Aunt Susannah, Lord and Lady Satterfield, and it was nice to visit with Nora, Ivy and Lucy. Lindsell, on the other hand was a drunk and totally insane with his thinking.

    I can see why Ned was called the Duke of Deception. Because he had so much to hide and he really did have to find the perfect wife. He had to find a wife that he could tell the truth to and would keep his secrets. Aquilla was the perfect heroine for him. Where she got the caring nature and sweetness from was beyond me. Her family was sooo unfeeling and her father and brother were mean brutes.

    There was explicit sex in this book, explicit but not dirty as in some books, definitely NOT erotic. And there was no swearing.

    As for the narration: Marian Hussy did a great job with voices and emotions. She has become one of my favorite narrators.

    "Okay Story. Great Narration!"

    This was an okay story. I liked Ned and Aquilla together, they made a good match and had genuine chemistry. There is a one very long sex scene with a lot of talking during it, but very well written. Not erotica not rated G.

    The story line and plot was okay. I think there could have been more with the brother and then the end seemed rushed. Not much else really that happened.

    As for the narration, it was brilliant! I love Marian Hussey. She does a superb job on all the voices, and the men sound like men. She reads with emotion and has a great reading voice.
