20A Devilish Duke on a Quest for Pleasure...

Frannie Darling was once a child of London's roughest streets, surrounded by petty thieves, pickpockets, and worse. But though she survived this harsh upbringing to become a woman of incomparable beauty, Frannie wants nothing to do with the men who lust for her, the rogues who frequent the gaming hall where she works. She can take care of herself and feels perfectly safe on her ownβ€”safe, that is, until he strides into her world, and once again it becomes a very dangerous place indeed.

To bed her but not wed her. That's what Sterling Mabry, the eighth Duke of Greystone, wants. But Frannie abhors arrogant aristocrats interested only in their own pleasure. So why then does the thought of an illicit tryst with the devilish duke leave her trembling with desire? Her willing body begs for release...and a wicked, wonderful surrender.

First thought after finishing: Frannie Darling deserved love and I am so glad she finally found it in Surrender to the Devil!

Story Thoughts: I knew that Frannie’s story would be a tough read. Her back story is heartbreaking and her plight for the orphaned children is heart-string pulling. I adored her part of the story and was really happy when she found love. It took a bit for to get into the romance between Frannie and Sterling but that all clicked about half way through the story. This was another fantastic addition to this series.

Character Thoughts:Frannie was the “scoundrel” that I was most looking forward too! She is a fantastic leading lady and has a wonderful heart. Her back story is heartbreaking but she over came it all. Sterling took a bit too like. Seriously, his attitude and I did not quite mesh. Though as Frannie fell in love so did I! I love when characters make me love them even though I am opposed

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Susan Ericksen /Length: 8 hrs and 51 mins

I wasn’t sure if I would like switching over to one narrator but Susan did a fantastic job. She was FRANNIE! I don’t think anyone else would be as good at getting her emotion and cadence. It just worked!

Final Thoughts: I need to get the last in this series soon!

  1. I think I’ve read something by this author before. I wonder if it was one of the earlier books in the series because I don’t recall this one. It sounds good though, especially Franny.

  2. So do we meet Frannie in the books before this one, or do you learn her back story all in this book? I’m rooting for her already! I haven’t read any of this series though, are they all great or should just start with Frannie?

  3. I love scoundrel characters with a heart of gold. Those usually tend to be the most fun to seeing they get what they need. I’ll probably be the same as you and take time to get to like the guy, but as long as I root for them in the end, I’m good. πŸ™‚
