Wiltshire, England, 1845
Lady Lily Jameson is thrilled to attend a house party given by Daniel Farnsworth, the Duke of Lybrook, but not because he's the most eligible bachelor in the peerage. Her only interest is his famous art collection, which reputedly includes a painting by her favorite artist, Jan Vermeer.
Daniel, duke only by virtue of the untimely deaths of his father and older brother, wants nothing to do with his new duties. He'd rather continue his rakish ways. When he finds the lovely Lily sneaking around the property in search of his art collection, sparks fly.
Despite her father's wishes, Lily has no intention of marrying. She wants to travel the world to gain real life inspiration for her painting and writing. And what could be better worldly experience than a passionate affair with the notorious Duke of Lybrook?
But circumstances may change the game and the players...and danger lurks, as well.

"Poor performance, worse story"
The performance sounded almost computerized in places as accents were put into sentences that didn't have need of them. In addition, the characters were poorly developed. It is definitely reminiscent of 50 Shades in that there was an unnecessary amount of sex from the very beginning. I honestly have a hard time finding much redeeming in this narrative or the performance.
"worst audio book"
This is the very worst audio book recording I've ever listened to on Audible. The narrator's voices for the main characters play out more as puppets. The story itself falls flat with obvious dialogue and cliche descriptions. I would not recommend the book or recording to anyone- especially to Austen fans. This series was advertised to be a meeting of Austen and 50 Shades, but the similarities end in the book's summary.
I'm trying to listen but the narrator of this book is making my ears bleed.
I felt like I was listening to B rated porno. I returned book after 5 chapters. nothing like Jane austen meets fifty shades of grey.
Loved this story. I LAUGHED AND cried . Was a book that keep your attention the whole time.
I loved this book but amaze how the story line keep you guess in. Wish to see more book like this. Helen hardt is a amazing author.
Overall OK. Story seem to drag on a little with every detail and then it seem to rush at the end. More sexual scenes than actual story i thought.
