Publisher's Summary

Destiny will be decided betweenthe sheets in this all-new tale of “The Princess and the Pea.”

For Olivia Lytton, betrothal to the Duke of Canterwick - hardly a Prince Charming - feels more like a curse than a happily-ever-after. At least his noble status will help her sister, Georgiana, secure an engagement with the brooding, handsome Tarquin, Duke of Sconce,a perfect match for her in every way... every way but one. Tarquin has fallen in love with Olivia.

Quin never puts passion before reason. And reason says that Georgiana is his ideal bride. But the sensual, fiery, strong-willed Olivia ignites an unknown longing in him - a desire they are both powerless to resist.

When a scandalous affair begins, they risk losing everything - Olivia’s engagement, her sister’s friendship, and their own fragile love. Only one thing can save them - and it awaits in the bedroom, where a magnificent mattress holds life-changing answers to the greatest romantic riddle of all.

Not your typical romance...but Good!

If you could sum up The Duke Is Mine in three words, what would they be?

Excellent narration! Characters!

Who was your favorite character and why?

The 'mentally challenged' son was compelling and complex.

Which character – as performed by Susan Duerden – was your favorite?

The father of the mentally challenged son had an excellent voice. I could TOTALLY picture him, as if he were on stage or in a film!

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

When the main female character was comforting the dying soldier in France. She was very loving and compassionate in a situation that she could have ignored or even been more relieved about.

Any additional comments?

The story is unique...not a typical romance. Parts of it were funny. There was an excellent spectrum of emotion and the narration was absolutely outstanding!
