Publisher's Summary

He’s a powerful lord bent on vengeance

Maxwell, the Duke of Pennington, is a man focused on one thing: Revenge. He’ll stop at nothing to achieve his goal, including marrying the beautiful, unpredictable granddaughter of the man he seeks reprisal against - whether Gabriella is willing or not. As Max inexplicably finds himself drawn to the spirited minx, unforeseen doubts, and guilt arise.
 

She’s a dowerless orphan with no marriage prospects

Miss Gabriella Breckensole is astonished when the enigmatic Duke of Pennington turns his romantic attentions on her. Debonair and confident, he set her heart fluttering from their first meeting. Far beneath his station, Gabby never hoped to win his favor, and she soon risks losing her heart to the roguish lord.

Until she accidentally overhears Maxwell vowing to return her familial home to his dukedom and learns his courtship is a revenge-filled ploy. Even though he awakened feelings she never imagined possible, Gabriella now considers him an enemy. Max must make the impossible choice between retribution or forever losing the only woman to ever touch his heart.

Buy this pause-resisting book for an emotional, entertaining, and romantic regency historical romance adventure you won’t want to put down.

Though this book is part of a series, it can easily be listened to as a stand-alone novel.

Betrayal and Healing

This wonderful story is full secrets, misunderstandings, and the heartbreak they can cause. As the story unfolds it becomes one of discovery, healing, and acceptance. I love Max and Gabby. If they can work everything out, they will be perfect with each other. All of the characters in this one are compelling. All of them have felt the pain of betrayal, and only they can help each other heal. The best thing about having to climb a mountain is that you eventually get to the top. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it, especially when it begins with “I could love you.” This is a hold-your-breath romance, and Stevie Zimmerman’s outstanding narration makes it a great listen.

Good Regency romance

If you're looking for a sweet Regency romance, I'd totally recommend What Would a Duke Do?. I really enjoyed this book from Ms. Cameron. The plot was unlike any I'd read before, which was a nice surprise, The twist in the plot caught me off guard, which was wonderfully unexpeted.

Ms Zimmerman has great pacing and a great British accent to help bring the characters to life. I appreciate how much emotion she pours into her performance.

I won't hesitate to pick up another book from Ms Cameron or one narrated by Ms Zimmerman. Well done.

What Would A Duke Do?

That is not something I would ask myself when i need to make a decision! However it is the question that needed to be answered in this book. The answer isn't what I expected, yet Collette has answered it in a surprising and fascinating way. From the beginning until the very last page, the tale remains fascinating and keeps you turning pages to find out what will suprisingly happen next and will our hero win his love! Will the heroine respond the way we want her to respond? Will their family's despising one another be able to be overcome? The twists and turns of this novel will entice you to keep reading long after you should pause to take care of other responsibilities. However, the final result, and the way the story unfolds, will keep your eyes wide open and every sense alertly glued to each page. Collette has a wild and fascinatingly interesting story in this one! You certainly do not want to miss out on discovering the answer to the question! What Would a Duke Do????! Read or listen to the book to find the answer! It is riveting!

It was hard to pause!!

This story came alive with the narration! The story was well written and the narration pulled me into the story and I felt like I was right there with Gabriela and Maxwell. Their story was filled with back and forth that showed how perfect they are together. I really enjoyed their story and I also enjoyed the supporting characters. I can't wait to meet them in a future book. It was hard to pause and it kept me wanting to listen. I would definitely recommend it!

Kept me guessing

The story kept me guessing with so many twists in the Duke's tale. Would he allow his feelings for Gabriella overcome his need for vengeance? Will their love overcome hidden secrets from the past?

Ridiculous

There are 24 non-Royal dukedoms in the UK and most of the incumbents are aged above 70. This book abounds with gorgeous young dukes. The plot is also nonsensical..
