Publisher's Summary

American heiress August Crenshaw has aspirations. But unlike her peers, it isn't some stuffy British lord she wants wrapped around her finger - it's Crenshaw Iron Works, the family business. When it's clear that August's outrageously progressive ways render her unsuitable for a respectable match, her parents offer up her younger sister to the highest entitled bidder instead. This simply will not do. August refuses to leave her sister to the mercy of a loveless marriage.

Evan Sterling, the duke of Rothschild, has no intention of walking away from the marriage. He's recently inherited the title only to find his coffers empty, and with countless lives depending on him, he can't walk away from the fortune a Crenshaw heiress would bring him. But after meeting her fiery sister, he realizes Violet isn't the heiress he wants. He wants August, and he always gets what he wants.

But August won't go peacefully to her fate. She decides to show Rothschild that she's no typical London wallflower. Little does she realize that every stunt she pulls to make him call off the wedding only makes him like her even more.

Contains mature themes.

Total boredom

This book was really difficult to get through as it was just so incredibly boring.

Three in half stars

This book is slow to start, almost half way through before it gets interesting. There is very little sex in the book, so if you want a clean historical romance this is it. I wish the end had an epilogue. I like to see how thing are in the future.

Hallmark movie

This book was super cheesy. Could for sure be a hallmark movie in the making. My book club picked it because of their love of Bridgerton.

Average listen

This was a run of the mill romance for me. I didn't find either character compelling. Also, the narrator's voice was a little too perky for me. She used a lot of inflection but I just couldn't get over the dissonance. This is prob just a personal preference.

What a BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY!

I've never listened to this author (at least that I can remember), but OH! WHAT A BEAUTIFUL LOVE STORY! American Heiress who in the 1800's works in her family empire & loves it (tho woman working were not the thing) & w/her family vacations to London. There she meets a broke Duke who must marry an Heiress-but that is when I'll stop. This story takes you in to many
twists & turns that up to the very end you are guessing. And the end if worth it!! Every woman's dream - to be so loved!

Great Story

If you like strong women you will like listening to this book. A young woman goes to Europe with her parents and sister and finds what she wasn't expecting. Her independence is front and center in her mind and affects her heart after she meets a man she considers to be a money grubbing rake.

I really enjoyed this!!

Great story and the narrater did a fabulous job! I do think this narrater's men's voices sound a little old but otherwise, the narration brings the book to life!

Compelled to write a review

I haven't reviewed a book in awhile but I felt this book deserved one. First of all, the performance was outstanding. Justine Eyre effortlessly switched between American and British accents. They were both flawless. I was very impressed. Secondly, I loved the story and characters. The hero was humble, the heroine was fierce. Recently I have listened to or read a lot of historical romance. They tend to all run togther in my mind after a while. Few are original or clever enough to stand out, this one has done it. I can't wait for book two! The author set it up nicely without distracting from the current book.

Love Story

I was gripped from beginning to end. Unlike some romance novels, Heiress Gets a Duke never lagged. I was so hooked I read from chapter 6 to the Chapter 24 in one sitting!

It was an ok story

if not for the turning point where the need for money was no longer there it would have been a great story but it was like any other storyline like this no originality. I will look for the second story and I hope there is a lot of originality with Violets storyline.
