Description

After years of playing the rake to hide a dark family secret, the Duke of Aversley feels tainted beyond redemption and cynical beyond repair. Never does he imagine hope will come in the form of a quirky, quick-witted lady determined to win the heart of another gentleman.

Thanks to a painfully awkward past, Lady Amelia De Vere long ago relinquished the notion she was a flower that had yet to blossom. But when her family faces financial ruin and the man she has always loved is on the verge of marrying another, she'll try anything to transform herself to capture her childhood love and save her family - including agreeing to participate in a bet between her brother and the notorious, dangerously handsome Duke Of Aversley.

Bound by the bet, Amelia and Aversley discover unexpected understanding and passion beyond their wildest dreams, if only they can let go of their pride, put trust in each other and chance losing their hearts.

Forgot about my life's tribulations reading it. LOVED IT

I absolutely adore this book. ADULT mature characters, engaging story and a Duke that makes all other men I know seem very small in comparison. I stayed up until 2 am reading this book even though I had to be at work by 8 am. You will absolutely love it too.

Pretty good story and good narration.

This was a pretty good story, I liked the heroine, Amelia well enough in that she was strong for the most part and knew what or thought she wanted. I liked Aversley too. He was strong, handsome and rich. And he wanted to stay Rich. LOL There was a bit of attraction denial between these two for a while but they got past it. There was a very mildly written sex scene.

The story line and plot was pretty good, I liked the wager part of it. It developed pretty well too. There were a couple of annoying moments but not much. There was lots of dialogue throughout the entire book so that was a bonus.

As for the narration, it was good. I like Tim Campbell he does the women's voices well and the everyone does get their own voice. He reads with emotion and and has a nice reading voice.

Quite good!

This was quite good! I'm eagerly awaiting subsequent books in this series.

Secret vows. What a mess they create. Colin and his mother are plagued by one and it has severe ramifications. Amelia is in love with her long-time "hero." When Colin and Amelia's brother make an agreement, that, too, has terrible consequences. Can Colin and Amelia find what they each desire the most without falling prey to what others think is best for them?

Good story with good characters, main and secondary - even if flawed.

Good characters

Any additional comments?

The hero is Collin (a Duke) and the heroine is Lady Amelia. Amelia's brother and Collin are best friends. Amelia has loved her neighbor, Charles since she was a young girl and her goal in life is to marry him, but Charles is involved with another young lady, who is very mean. Amelia gets a chance to go to London to try to win Charles's heart. Collin is there too and he gets involved in Amelia's attempt to win Charles. There are a couple of other story lines involving Collin's parents and Amelia's mother - both of which complicate things. However they are a integral part of the Amelia/Collin/Charles plot. The book kept my interest from beginning to end and the reader, Tim Campbell is an excellent performer. He does well with women's voices as well as men's voices. I truly enjoyed this book.

Fun

Where does My Fair Duchess rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I listen to a ton of regional romances

What does Tim Campbell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Great narrator. I choose books on narrators more than authors.

Intriguing and touching story. Exceptional!

I would highly recommend this book and it is deserving of the five star review. The story was captivating and kept my interest throughout and the ending was well done.
