Publisher's Summary

An American heiress nobody wants; a duke every woman desires; and a murder no one expects.

As a young duke, all Nathaniel wants is to be left alone. So when he meets Charlotte, an outspoken American heiress, he is suspicious of her indifference. Too many women have sought - and failed - to catch him.

However, Charlotte is unimpressed by his title. She has no interest in English dukes. All she wants is to leave dreary England and travel to the sunny sands of Egypt to see the grand pyramids.

Unfortunately, a debutante seeking to entrap Nathaniel gets murdered, and his reputation as a confirmed misogynist makes him a suspect. On impulse, Charlotte comes to his aid, unaware that her actions place her in danger, too.

Neither Charlotte nor the duke know that a highwayman interested in rich heiresses is following Charlotte, and that another debutante lies dead in Nathaniel's carriage. And unfortunately, the evidence soon complicates Nathaniel's efforts to prove his innocence and convince Charlotte that he is worthy of her love.

Some nights just don't go as planned.

Cute, but....

Grammatical errors or not, this was a cute book!!! But my heavens how can one woman be SO stupid when she's (supposedly) so smart?! Silliness!

Will I listen again, probably not.
The story was good.
The narrator was good.
The problems were tolerable.
But Charlotte was SO irritating!

Clean.

The Unwanted Heiress

I thought this story could have been better, with more action, I thought it was dragged out. I look forward to hearing more of her books, I am sure they will be better. I am looking for fast action, drama, Spicy love stories. Kattie. 2/3/18.

narrator <br />

The narrator changed the her own from a Midwest accent to a slightly Sothern accent. going back and forth from one to the other. I would have liked her to pick one and stick with it.

This audiobook was ok, was it not?

This was a good listen, despite the bad American accent and the excessive usage of “was it not?” and “is it not?” This book was entertaining enough to distract me for a few days of my commute.

A Madcap Romance

An enjoyable read with quite a bit of madcap happenings but ultimately the mysteries are solved, the murderer gets justice and the H/h get their HEA.

I wasn't thrilled with the narration for Charlotte as she was supposed to be a southern girl with a drawl. That did not come across at all.
