Summary

They call him the Duke of Ruin.

To an undaunted wallflower, he's just the beast next door.

Wealthy and ruthless, Gabriel Duke clawed his way from the lowliest slums to the pinnacle of high society - and now he wants to get even.

Loyal and passionate, Lady Penelope Campion never met a lost or wounded creature she wouldn’t take into her home and her heart.

When her imposing - and attractive - new neighbour demands she clear out the rescued animals, Penny sets him a challenge. She will part with her precious charges, if he can find them loving homes.

Rising to the challenge, Gabriel, who wouldn’t know a loving home from a workhouse, is bewitched by the shyly pretty spinster who defies his every attempt to resist. But now she’s set her heart and mind on saving him.... 

Not if he ruins her first.

Easy read , funny in parts

Normal Tessa Dare type story. Silly storyline, but easy to listen to, and very funny in parts (if you don't mind swearing). Too much descriptive sex in this book. Less of that and more story would be better.

Absolutely wonderful

This book is so well written. The characters are three dimensional and each has a personality that is interesting and fun. The conversations between them led to more than one laugh out loud moment. Mary Jane Wells reads as if she is really enjoying herself, her comic timing and dramatic skill bring the book to life. Entertainment in it’s true sense. I can’t wait till the next one!!
