Summary

Serenity Drake went back in time for altruistic reasons. Her sister Peyton was dying and she needed her other sister to go back to save her life. Along the way she didn’t expect to find the one man she couldn’t resist.  

Brandon Bennet, the Duke of Branterberry, has a young son to care for. He has no room for Serenity in his life, but needs her help after she convinces his son’s governess to leave his employ. She takes on the duties with a flourish all her own. Brandon finds her difficult to resist, but has no wish to marry again. His first marriage left little to be desired.  

As a spymaster, Brandon has more than Serenity and his family to contend with. With the fate of his country at stake he must make a difficult decision: Does he give in to his attraction or abandon Serenity for the good of England?

The perfect adventure.

Serenity has a beautiful heart, but a mischievous spirit.  What began as an act of love between two sisters, opens her eyes to a world of trouble.  To save a life, Serenity will risk her own well being and end up finding a love that could last a lifetime. Part fantasy, part romance, part intrigue, Scheming with My Duke is all heart. Dawn Brower provides the perfect adventure for a wandering heart and a shrewd mind.

Scheming with My Duke

I absolutely love this series each book can be read as a stand-alone but it’s so much more fun doing the whole series! Serenity is determined to help the Duke but in his time women don’t do certain things. Although he’s more open to some things, more so than others in his time. Her knowledge of the future and special abilities give him a better than average chance but he just needs to learn to rely on her and for a spymaster that’s no easy task! Great short story it really pulls you in and is a quick easy listen.

Scheming Minx

I have listened to several books by this author and have enjoyed them. I found this story to be original and yet a standalone listen. Some of the characters were endearing while others were not. I found the Duke (Brandon) to be standoffish, probably based on his rank and previous marriage. Serenity came across a bit bold to me, and not exactly Mary Poppins style nanny material. She was wonderful with his son though. I enjoyed their journey, and would listen to more books by Dawn Bower and JK Mannion.

Scheming with My Duke

This is a decent romance novel with a time travel aspect. I do enjoy hearing stories of strong willed 21st century women finding themselves in a very different 18th century. Serenity’s story did not disappoint.

A great addtion to this series, wonderful twists

This takes up where the last book in this series left off with Serenity staying behind to take care of Brandon son. Serenity is scared for Brandon who she has fallen for as history plays out things can’t be changed or it might change things as they are today. There is a fine line as to what Serenity can and can’t do as well as say. Brandon wants all the information since he doesn’t know the outcome he feels he might be able to help things go his way. Serenity will not give that information, but she will do everything in her power to keep him safe.

This was really a great read with wonderful characters, you can fell the passion these two are fighting against as well as the tension to history and how that plays out. Serenity is a great lady knowing when to stop and when to push. Brandon spends most of his time fighting the feeling he has for her. Never would he have thought he would love until the day he saw his son and now with this wild wonderful woman he has found life will never be the same.

I really liked this narrator he has a voice you never get tired of listening to. He brings a lot to this audio making you see the pictures of each scene in your mind giving you a truly delightful audio experience. His character voices both male and female are a delight, you always know who is talking and what they are feeling. There are no repeating of words, no background, no volume changes and if any breaks were taken I could not tell. He gives the correct amount of pause before going on to let you feel the emotions that the characters are feeling. I just love his normal voice it is a voice I never get tired of. His performance is outstanding and really being this audio to life.

This is a wonderful addition to this series letting you see how history could be affected if something is changed. Brandon’s son is a delightful ball of energy that I just adored. This was such a fun listen that I got lost in and had to find out the outcome, it was one I couldn’t put down and listened until the end. The plot is great I just love time travel and how it all works out. I enjoyed the twists and turns, the teasing and picking as well as the passion. I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.

A Good Romance Story

really enjoyed this book. I have not read the others in the series but this is a good stand alone book. Serenity is from the future but goes back in time to help her sister. Brandon is the duke for which she becomes governess for his son. She causes trouble because after all she is a 21st century woman i the 18th century. The Duke knows she is from the future but still cannot abide some of her idiosyncrasies. There is great interaction between the characters. It is well written and the narration is also very good.

Forbidden love

This was a nice short listen that I started and finished in an afternoon. I can hardly imagine what it would be like to be able to travel through time and see history happen. I have to think even harder to imagine what it would be like to find love across time like our heroine has done. I love the strong characters in this short book. I haven't listened to others in this series, but I didn't feel like I was missing out starting with this book. If you need a short romance break (and who doesn't?), this is a great one to pick up!

Another great book in the series

I am a huge fan of this series and this book is just as good as he rest. I love Serenity and get such a kick out of these 18th century men who have no idea what do with these strong 21st century woman. J.K. Mannion did an amazing job with the narration. Great book, Great Story, love Brandon and Serenity. Definitely recommend
