    Description

    She lives for passion.

    Bold, impulsive, and a magnet for trouble, Juliana Fiori is no simpering English miss. She refuses to play by society's rules: She speaks her mind, cares nothing for the approval of the ton, and can throw a punch with remarkable accuracy. Her scandalous nature makes her a favorite subject of London's most practiced gossips...and precisely the kind of woman the duke of Leighton wants far far away from him.

    He swears by reputation.

    Scandal is the last thing Simon Pearson has room for in his well-ordered world. The Duke of Disdain is too focused on keeping his title untainted and his secrets unknown. But when he discovers Juliana hiding in his carriage late one evening - risking everything he holds dear - he swears to teach the reckless beauty a lesson in propriety. She has other plans, however; she wants two weeks to prove that even an unflappable duke is not above passion.

    Like the Story - Horrible Narration

    Would you try another book from Sarah MacLean and/or Barrie Kreinik?

    Yes, I enjoy most of Sarah MacLean's stories. Light reading good for beaches or cold winter night.

    Would not buy another Barrie Kreinik narration. She did a horrible job at the heroine's voice. Made her sound like a gargon. Also made Ralston sound like a fool.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Barrie Kreinik?

    Kate Reading. She does an excellent job with both male and female voices.

    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Better narrator, more development of Simon and to why he was the way he was.

    Any additional comments?

    It is a good enough book but the narrator spoils the entire story. Needs to be done over.

    Not as good as the 2nd book.

    This was an okay story, not nearly as good as the second book. I liked the chemistry and the bickering between Juliana and Simon "The Duke". The story was good. I would have liked there to be a better ending with the mother, ie, she deserved to get exiled or something without a penny. But unfortunately that was left with no resolution.

    The narration was not the best. I thought the narrator did the men's voices better than the women's. She made Juliana sound like a wretched old crow most of the time, especially when she was angry. And she should never do an Italian voice ever again.

    Narrator a Disappointment

    When writing a series with recurring characters it's a big mistake to change narrators. The "loving" heroes in the previous two books, were now portrayed in a haughty, almost whiny way. The heroine in this book was also more strident sounding. Because of this, it was harder to engage with the characters. The story was good but this was my least favorite of this family saga.

    Enjoyed the family loyalty

    The first part was more intriguing than the second because it tended to be repetitious and move slower after the first half. Interesting characters including the stereotyped straight-laced Duke. Count how many times the author uses her favorite word: imperious. The narrator's Italian accent was actually quite good, although loud.

    REALLY ENJOYED THIS LISTEN

    Loved the characters and the story line. The narrator was very good...I would listen to anything she narrates again.

    Main characters SOOOOOOOOOOO annoying

    Sarah MacLean is a great storyteller and this book is a good story. BUT, the characters drove me crazy.. Juliana made me want to jerk her out of the story and slap her silly. At times her interaction with other characters made the others seem stupid. The book should have ended about chapter 12. A different narrator may have made me like the book more....but I don't think so.

    Duke of distain and a shameless heroine

    The hero is not very likable and the heroine’s total lack of self-respect is appalling. The wager between the hero and the heroine was a bit silly since he had not much to gain from it and no true reason to agree especially since he was engaged to be married to someone else. It almost seemed like he wanted to go along with the wager to have fun at her expense. He did not stop to consider that by doing so he is endangering a good friend’s sister's fragile reputation even further. The heroine’s total lack of concern for her purity or reputation in addition to her constant attempts at pathetically chasing a man, who found her completely unacceptable as a wife, was so very unsatisfactory. I can’t imagine this method working for anyone but apparently it worked for this Duke.

    I understand that the times were different and being from a different culture myself I can see how one can get brainwashed enough to follow society’s rules at any expense. I did however like that he did find his heart at the end of the book. Not a 5 or 4 star but a definite 3.

    Terrible narration

    Well she reads a story well, she has trouble differentiating one person from another, and completely fails at accents. The biggest fault falls with the group that put it together. To me one of the most important things about A Series is continuity of narration or at least the quality. It shows a lack of caring for the audience.
    On the other hand, if I hadn’t heard the two previous books, I would never have suffered through the third one.

    Lovely story

    Loved the story but wasn’t a fan of the reading.. I didn’t care for her voice if the main character and it made it difficult to warm up to her

    Das war mal wieder nix

    Die Bücher von Sarah MacLean sind wie Lotterie spielen: man weiß vorher nicht ob man eine Niete oder einen Volltreffer geliefert bekommt. War der zehnte Band für mich ein Volltreffer, so war der elfte dann auch prompt wieder eine echte Niete.
    Eine wirklich dumme Handlung mit unsympathischen Hautpdarstellern und einer kreischigen Sprecherin...das macht das Durchhalten zu einer schwierigen Angelegenheit.

    Unsere Heldin wird als unsympathisch und unlogisch handelnd beschrieben, immer damit konfrontiert dass sie sich (wirklich) schlecht benimmt. Und der Held will eine andere heiraten und verlobt sich auch mit ihr während er nach Stich und Faden die Heldin verführt.
    Dass er die Verlobte dann nicht heiratet ist eher zufällig. Ich bin ja eigentlich wirklich nicht auf einem moralisch wahnsinnig hohen Posten, aber es hat mich schon gestört dass diese Verlobte einfach nach Strich und Faden betrogen und hintergangen wird. Das macht den Helden nicht wirklich sympathisch.


    Im Nachhinein erfährt man auch, warum beide eigentlich tragische Figuren sind, aber da ist es auch schon zu spät. Wer wissen will, wie arrogante Herzöge sympathische Züge bekommen können, dem empfehle ich wärmstens Mary Baloghs Slightly Dangerous (leider nur als Buch erhältlich, das Audiobuch gibt es nicht mehr in digitaler Form).


    Die Heldin ist Italienerin und die amerikanische Sprecherin scheint nicht so recht den Unterschied zwischen slawischen und romanischen Akzenten zu kennen, übertreibt es maßlos und so keift die Heldin unerträglich und unwahrscheinlich unecht durch die Gegend und zerstört dabei systematisch jeden Anschein von Romantik.

    Dazu komt das immer gleiche Schema von Verführung und Handlungsaufbau - und fertig ist ein Buch, das von Stereotypen und leider dummen Geschwurbel nur so strotzt (mein Favorit: Her stockings were on fire!).
