What the duke wants...

Is not three young ladies for wards. Nor is the responsibility for finding them a governess. Thankfully, that is delegated to his housekeeper, who, he might add, is blind as a bat. That really could be the only excuse she has for hiring Carlotta. Because Carlotta is far too beautiful to be a governess. Temptress, yes.

Unable to restrain himself - because restraint is not one of his virtues, and his reputation is testament of that fact - he finds the young governess far more spirited, opinionated, and tempting than he is able to resist. And of course, because he's an idiot. He falls in love. 

Never questioning whether she'd be a willing participant. Of course life isn't that easy, not even when you're a bloody duke. And after one meddling Lady Southridge leads to two fiascos, three wards decide to take matters into their own hands. Because what the duke simply to fall in love (preferably with the young woman in mind falling in love too).

Narration ruins a good book! (Again)

I just don’t understand how anyone can choose to have something they’re trying to sell (this book) so poorly represented on purpose? I mean, how does this happen? This book was a good regency romance.... totally ruined by narration that verges on utterly intolerable and cringingly comical. It I got thru it, but it was interesting.... it sounded like an old woman who thought a mans voice had to be booming, unexpressed, deep and well booming!!! It’s just wrong? Who did this to this author? Why bother putting something on audio only to undermine the whole thing by making it bad, unsalable, useless.
Again, I got through this, no ears bleeding, no out and out tearing off of earbuds or swearing. It was tolerable.... would I ever use a credit to purchase something with this narrator again? Hell NO! Do I regret THIS purchase, well, no!

Heat Factor: Luke warm at best....

Loved the book. Couldn’t listen to the narration.

Please read the book. It is fun and enjoyable. The narration on this book puts you “off” the story. Could not listen to second half of book.
