Publisher's Summary

They call him the duke of murder.

The gossips whisper that the new Duke of Murdoch is a brute, a murderer, and, even worse - a Scot. They say he should never be trusted alone with a woman. But Megan Windham sees in Hamish something different, someone different.

No one was fiercer at war than Hamish MacHugh, though now the soldier faces a whole new battlefield: a London Season. To make his sisters happy, he'll take on any challenge - even letting their friend Miss Windham teach him to waltz. Megan isn't the least bit intimidated by his dark reputation, but Hamish senses that she's fighting battles of her own. For her, he'll become the warrior once more, and for her, he might just lose his heart.

4.5 stars

I have read and listened to many of Grace Burrowes romances. I especially appreciate her intelligent writing and her portrayal of family relationships is very comforting. But in many of her books, there comes a point where I become most frustrated with a drawn-out spell of stupidity on either the hero's or more usually the heroine's part.

YAY! The Trouble with Dukes omits the aforementioned "daft" period and was consequently a more satisfying tale. If you know the Wyndham clan, you'll appreciate their reappearances.

I appreciate James Langton's baritone and variety of voices for the numerous male characters. He's a comfort listen for me.

My Musings

Wow! I LOVED this book. Meggie and Hamish are perfect for each other. Loved spending time with some of my favorite characters. The narrator is outstanding and truly brought them to life. I couldn't stop listening to this fantastic romantic tale. Happy reading!

Cute and entertaining

The story started very cute and believable up until towards the end when the main villain was easily dispensed of. All that build up fizzled quickly in one quick scene. I just found the ending a bit goofy although I enjoyed listening to the story. James Langton's voice is made for narration however his performance here was OK. The heroine was given a Scott's accent when she and her siblings were supposedly raised in England except their mother whom was Scottish. Overall I give the narration and storyline a 3.
