Publisher's summary

When Lord Greene wagers his daughter's hand in marriage in a card game, no one is less surprised the woman herself. The only thing that shocks Olive is that the man that he has gambled her away to is none other than the Duke of Ruin.

Rumors abound that the Sixth Duke of Everleigh callously murdered his late wife and killed her lover in a duel - and now Olive is to become his bride.

Ruan Ashford took one look at Olive Greene and knew that he had to have her in his bed. The beautiful, auburn-haired temptress will make a perfect Duchess; there's only one problem - his new wife despises him.

When a chance arises for Olive to disappear, she readily grabs hold of it, and soon, the Duke of Ruin is hunting the Cornish countryside for his runaway bride. When he finds her, can he convince her that he's not the dreadful villain the world thinks him to be and that his love for her is real?

Finally!

A book where a female narrator speaks for all the women and a male narrator speaks for all the men. This makes it far more enjoyable and much less jarring than a person trying to sound like the opposite sex.

I had to finish it before I went to bed!

Would you listen to The Duke of Ruin again? Why?

Really enjoyed this! This isn't my usual genre; I listened to the audio-book based on a friend's recommendation. My plan was to listen while walking...but as the story progressed, I couldn't wait until my next walk... so... I had to finish it before I went to bed!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ruin. His character was well developed.

What does Duke and Duchess DeFoix bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Character personalities! They brought the story alive!

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

Many!

Any additional comments?

I thoroughly enjoyed the plot. I would have liked less passion and more friendship between Olive and Ruin.
