New York Times best-selling author Cathy Maxwell's glittering Marrying the Duke series continues.
Twice he has been close to the altar and still no duchess. Will the third time be the charm?
A duke can't marry just anyone. His wife must be of good family, be fertile, and be young. Struggling playwright Sarah Pettijohn is absolutely the last woman Gavin Whitridge, Duke of Baynton, would ever fall in love with. She is an actress, born on the wrong side of the blanket, and always challenges his ducal authority. She never hesitates to tell him what she thinks.
However, there is something about her that stirs his blood, which makes her perfect for a bargain he has in mind: In exchange for backing her play, he wants Sarah to teach him about love.
And he, in turn, has a few things to teach her about men.

"One of Cathy Maxwell's Best"
Cathy always writes wonderful characters and stories that excites and warms my heart. These characters and this story will take its place as one of my favorites. Can love be satisfied with such a deep divide between the lovers? That was my question? Loved spending time with these characters!
"Cathy Maxwell is brilliant"
I enjoyed this easy listen. Cathy Maxwell's wit and charm are showcased in this second in this series. I find our female lead believable in her quest to have her love mean something solid and I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a good actress getting her leading man!
I enjoyed this book. The writing is superb and no detail left out. The hero Gaven is multifaceted and swoon worthy. I found myself a little jealous of the heroine. Sarah is a strong woman with layers to her as well. I enjoyed this book so much. It is my favorite in the series. I hope everyone loves this twisting story as much as I did.
Well written story, both romantic yet suspenseful, funny yet serious and overall totally enjoyable!
The characters have depth and quirks and well developed personalities and histories. I got to know them well and that says something.
I did, however, feel as if someone was just reading to me.
NARRATOR: Normally the narration is a performance with distinct characters and voices. While there was never a reason to wonder who was speaking there was also no moment of getting lost in the "movie in my mind" sort of experience. I felt like I was listening to someone read a book, not perform it. I suppose that isn't a bad thing, since I would rather enjoy someone reading to me than suffer through a horribly unenjoyable attempt at 'performing' it.
CREDITWORTHY? : In my opinion yes.
HEAT FACTOR: Warm... with slightly overheated moments tastefully included on occasion.
"Love this series"
This is a great series and I can't wait for the next book. Mary Jane Wells has a wonderful voice and really makes the characters come alive. The Duke was such a great guy and her voice for him is spot on. I didn't want the book to end but truly loved how it did.
Excellent book and narration. Highly recommended . Mary Jane Wells really takes over the characters roles to perfection. Bravo 👏.
