Publisher's Summary

Praise for the Cavensham Heiresses series 

“Sparkling.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Full-bodied romance...with intelligence and heart.” (New York Times best-selling author Cathy Maxwell)

A lady with a noble mission. A duke looking for redemption. A forbidden love that cannot be denied, in The Good, The Bad, and the Duke by Janna MacGregor.

Lady Daphne Hallworth is ready to celebrate the holidays with her family. But when they accidentally leave her home alone, Daphne uses the time to work on her dream - opening a home for unwed mothers. But her quest isn’t problem-free: She’s in a battle to win the property for the home against her brother’s best friend turned enemy, Paul Barstowe, Duke of Southart. And that’s not all: Someone has stolen her personal diary, which holds secrets that could devastate her family. Daphne has always harbored private feelings for the man her family scorns...though perhaps striking a bargain with the handsome duke will solve both their problems.

Paul, long considered good for nothing, aims to open a hospital to honor his brother and restore his reputation. So when a conflict over the land brings him straight into Daphne’s life, they make a deal: He will help her find her diary if Daphne can change her family’s opinion of him. But before he can win her family’s affection, he has to win hers first. Maybe love was the answer to their family feud all along.

Beautiful!

Wow! This was such a lovely story! Paul and Daphne are truly a wonderful couple! He was such a gentleman. It was nice having a character that was really trying so hard to correct past mistakes. I thought Daphne was sweet and had a great spirit. I loved the Narrator. Her reading was just wonderful!

No longer invisible

A wonderful book! Elaine Wise was a better narrator in this book than the last! Lady Daphne was accidentally left behind for the holidays. She was angry at first then realized she can work on her charity (Aubreys Place), A home for unwed mothers.
When she went to the park, a young urchin stoled her reticule with her journal in it. She chased the urchin to the Reynolds a gentleman’s club.
Paul has been a scandal all his life. When his brother and the father die within weeks of each other he knows he must become a better man. As the new Duke he wants to open a hospital in his brothers honor. His father from the grave is haunting him by leaving his old vows to pay.
He went to the Reynolds to pay one of those vows. While there he sees Lady Daphne trying to get in. He goes to assist her and to save her reputation he calls her Lady Moonbeam.
A wonderful book where 2 people can finally find love!

AGAIN. DREADFUL NARRATION

I will go over to Kindle for this one. I wanted to know the story of Paul and Daphne, but Elaine Wise's narration was SO BAD I couldn't stand it. Paul sounded like a young girl not a man. Save yourself and READ this one. Skip on to next book with Tim Campbell for any listening. Tim is great.

Audible should really be more selective on their narrators and only hired TALENTED narrators. Frustrating.
