Summary

Gillie Trewlove knows what a stranger’s kindness can mean, having been abandoned on a doorstep as a baby and raised by the woman who found her there. So, when suddenly faced with a soul in need at her door - or the alleyway by her tavern - Gillie doesn’t hesitate. But he’s no infant. He’s a grievously injured, distractingly handsome gentleman who doesn’t belong in Whitechapel, much less recuperating in Gillie’s bed....

Being left at the altar is humiliating; being rescued from thugs by a woman - albeit a brave and beautiful one - is the pièce de résistance to the duke of Thornley’s extraordinarily bad day. After nursing him back from the brink, Gillie agrees to help him comb London’s darker corners for his wayward bride. But every moment together is edged with desire and has Thorne rethinking his choice of wife. Yet Gillie knows the aristocracy would never accept a duchess born in sin. Thorne, however, is determined to prove to her that no obstacle is insurmountable when a duke loves a woman.

Enjoyable

Having read the story about her older brother and found it intriguing, despite some crazy concepts. I decided to try this story and was not disappointed. The only thing that always baffles me; is the idea that the English Aristocrats are abound with Dukes.
The style is the same, but the story is entertaining.

Terrific story

Loved this story about a Duke and a tavern owner, obviously from different social strata, who defied their peers in the name of love. Well written story and the performance was spot on by Ms. Reading. WELL worth the time and the credit.

Narrator Ruins the Story

How can anyone listen to this narrator's voice and attempted accent and enjoy this story. I am a huge fan of Lorraine Heath, but this is the second time I've not been able to enjoy the story because of the narrator's voice. This one, as in The Viscount and the Vixen, is too masculine, so when she is speaking the woman's part it's impossible to listen and engross yourself in the what the character is saying. In this audible the narrator not only has a very masculine voice but pronounces her words for the female lead with a gutter slang yet the female is suppose to be one who has says improving her speech helps her deal with the world. How can you feel any affection with a person who sounds like she works on the docks. Ms. Heath, please review your narrators before offering your wonderful books to your audible listeners.

Good story

Kate Reading is terrific. Story was interesting and sweet. Lots of sexual tension but things didn't get heated up until about chapter 18. Great ending. I do highly recommend.
