Young Lady Julia is offered by the king as a war prize to the Duke of Pembridge after her father tries to forcibly take the Duke's land. Worried that she will suffer as a result of his animosity, she runs away dressed as a page, only to unwittingly end up in the very same Duke's army.
Bronson, the Duke of Pembridge, is not fooled by the little page's disguise for a moment, and offers the lady his protection, not realizing that he is the man she is hiding from. As the attraction between the two grows, Julia is ultimately forced to face her fate and learn her place as the wife of a man she's come to love.
This story contains graphic sexual scenes, some anal play, and non-consensual spankings, including domestic discipline in a historical setting. if such material offends you, please do not buy this book!

This book was so stupid. I keep thinking it was going to get better.....Guess what? It didn't.
"Insipid story, annoying narrator."
They'd have to pay me.
Instant dopey romance, paper-thin personalities, ridiculous progression of the relationship, and the whole thing felt rushed and unedited. Add to the fact the heroine is 13 YEARS OLD, and nowhere on the book blurb does it say that!
Everything. I suppose she did sound like a 13 year old girl?
Disappointment, and pity.
This is the first book I am returning on Audible.
I'd have to look at the plot summary. If it contained "erotic spankings", no. If it was just a historical romance, yes. Enjoyed the narrator
The premise of the book was good, just too much emphasis on discipline and not enough character development.
I thought the narrator did very well. He has a wide range of voices and inflections, very enjoyable.
The heroine is beaten (spanked) into a very submissive wife who strikes me as more of a child then a women, save the sex scenes. The Duke is a decent, loving man but uses physical discipline to keep everybody in line. Without a strong heroine, it just didn't work for me.
"Ok. I guess....."
I don't get why so much chastisement and spanking should take up the majority of a short story. It wasn't a 'sensual' aspect... it was just....WRONG! Without it there was room for a good story to develop.
NARRATOR : Very good. I heard the characters not the narrator.
HEAT FACTOR : Dirty language and spanking does not equal sexual tension or heat. Mature themes.... but not real heat.
CREDITWORTHY : I probably wouldn't bother. But if you do you should just buy it since it costs less then a credit does
