Publisher's Summary

Gillie Trewlove knows what a stranger’s kindness can mean, having been abandoned on a doorstep as a baby and raised by the woman who found her there. So, when suddenly faced with a soul in need at her door - or the alleyway by her tavern - Gillie doesn’t hesitate. But he’s no infant. He’s a grievously injured, distractingly handsome gentleman who doesn’t belong in Whitechapel, much less recuperating in Gillie’s bed....

Being left at the altar is humiliating; being rescued from thugs by a woman - albeit a brave and beautiful one - is the pièce de résistance to the duke of Thornley’s extraordinarily bad day. After nursing him back from the brink, Gillie agrees to help him comb London’s darker corners for his wayward bride. But every moment together is edged with desire and has Thorne rethinking his choice of wife. Yet Gillie knows the aristocracy would never accept a duchess born in sin. Thorne, however, is determined to prove to her that no obstacle is insurmountable when a duke loves a woman.

Wonderful

This has taken its place among my favorite romance novels. The characters are beautifully written and come to life in these pages. The hero and heroine are both human and charming. No ridiculous conflicts, no misunderstandings that trail on for 100 pages... just a sweet story of two people from different worlds that gradually fall in love.

Didn’t want it to end

Second book into a series that’s quickly become a new favorite. The writing style is perfection. You can practically feel the electricity between the couples with steamy scenes so hawt hawt hawt and beautifully done. The relationship build has become my favorite part of her books. Looking forward to the next in my queue.

Beautiful

This was such a beautiful love story. I couldn't get enough. I would get so frustrated when I was interrupted while listening. it wasn't the usual love story but it was amazing. I love that she was so strong and she could hold her own. I especially liked that she stood up to her mother-in-law. Beautiful story.

Very Slow

It's very repetitive. No one is getting it on and the hero is nice. Yawn.

Terrific story

Loved this story about a Duke and a tavern owner, obviously from different social strata, who defied their peers in the name of love. Well written story and the performance was spot on by Ms. Reading. WELL worth the time and the credit.

Good story

Kate Reading is terrific. Story was interesting and sweet. Lots of sexual tension but things didn't get heated up until about chapter 18. Great ending. I do highly recommend.

Can't wait

Again what a lovely story. In it the duke is reading to gilly to keep her awake and while he is doing it the narrator describes how he is doing so. The description is just as the narrator reads to us. You must listen to this story to understand my meaning. The reading of this book draws you in as if you are there. I also like a series where all the characters of the 1st book not only appear but are involved. I think Lorraine Heath has the perfect recipe for a series that keeps you wanting more. So on that note I'm off to listen to the next. Can't wait.

Impressive Writing!

I will start by saying that the story was awesomely written. The Author is flawless in her use of description and skilled at developing her characters. She is, no doubt, a very very good writer.

However, though the theme of her story was interesting, her plot was too slow and rather boring. There was nothing exciting about it. The heroin came across as manly and not particularly attractive. The story picked up only slightly in the last two or three chapters, and the end was rather uninspiring. I did enjoy how the dowager unexpectedly reveals her hidden humanity and love for her son, the Duke at the end.

The performance wasn't bad. However, once again, I didn't like the voice used when expressing the heroin. She came across too masculine... physically, verbally and in her personality.

Brilliantly written, had great potential, but didn't quite deliver it for me.

Enjoyable

Having read the story about her older brother and found it intriguing, despite some crazy concepts. I decided to try this story and was not disappointed. The only thing that always baffles me; is the idea that the English Aristocrats are abound with Dukes.
The style is the same, but the story is entertaining.
