Editor reviews

Narrator Roger Clark's distinguished performance enhances the theatrical mood of this story as Fiona MacDermot, the fiery cousin of an Irish earl, marries a wealthy English duke despite her distaste for him, all so she can continue to help the starving people under her care. She finds out too late that Neville Percival, Duke of Anglesey, is just as penniless as she is. Clark's buttery voice and careful pacing will have listeners swooning as Fiona and Neville are brought together by a dangerous turn of events, and the two discover a passion for each other that shocks them.

Summary

Duke meets shrew. Taming doesn't happen.

Neville Perceval, the bankrupt Duke of Anglesey, has been burdened since youth with more responsibility than one man should handle. He has finally accepted that he needs to marry a wealthy, gracious lady who will ease his burdens and smooth his political path.

Fiona MacDermot, the rebellious, untamed cousin of an Irish earl, has the freedom and independence Neville has never known. Like the duke, she needs cash to help starving villagers and orphans. Unfortunately, she'd rather earn a living than have anything to do with useless men, and the politicians she knows all belong at the wrong end of a rope.

But when the duke is nearly beaten to death, and Fiona's looms are lost to a murdering thief, their lives are entangled in ways that threaten their futures. Lust shouldn't factor into their destinies, but it does, and now they have to find their dreams together, or die trying.

Absolutely loved it!

Great story, intriguing plot and detailed characters. The narrator was excellent and I could vividly see everything she was describing, from people to buildings in the countryside.
