When girl meets Duke, their marriage breaks all the rules…

Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury’s to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: brooding, glowering, menacing London ne’er-do-wells by night. Now there’s a new item on the list. He needs an heir—which means he needs a wife. When Emma Gladstone, a vicar’s daughter turned seamstress, appears in his library wearing a wedding gown, he decides on the spot that she’ll do.

His terms are simple:- They will be husband and wife by night only.- No lights, no kissing. - No questions about his battle scars.- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s pregnant with his heir, they need never share a bed again.

But Emma is no pushover. She has a few rules of her own:- They will have dinner together every evening.- With conversation.- And unlimited teasing.- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s seen the man beneath the scars, he can’t stop her from falling in love…

Quick Review: One of my rare 5 star ratings but I enjoyed this from beginning to end. I laughed out loud, cheered, and even teared up. I am really looking forward to the rest of the series.

Audio Review: Narrated by Mary Jane Wells, who is one of my favorite historical romance narrators. She does accents really well and with this one she nailed the humor. I highly recommend her!!!

  1. This will be a win/win for me because I love Dare and I just listened to my first MJ Wells audio (Marrying Winterborne) and loved her narration!

  2. I haven’t read anything by Dare before but when I went to organize my Kindle books, I realized I had at least 4 of her books on there lol

    I will get to her at some point!

    • She is fantastic 🙂 🙂 I seriously fan girl all over her though this is my first 5 star with her (though to be honest I only give out about 5 a year LOL)
