Maximilian Cale, the Duke of Lyons, long ago buried his grief for his missing elder brother, Peter, who was presumed dead after being kidnapped. When a mysterious note arrives from Tristan Bonnaud asserting that the Duke's brother is alive, it leads Max straight to the winsome Lisette Bonnaud, illegitimate daughter of a viscount and Tristan's sister. Soon he and Lisette are traveling to Paris posing as husband and wife, in search of Tristan, who has disappeared. And the longer he spends with Lisette, the easier it is for Max to see that the line between dukedom and desire is easier to cross than he imagined..

First Thoughts when Finished: What the Duke Desires by Sabrina Jeffries was one of those historicals that had it all: travel, romance, great characters, and a leading lady to root for!

Overall Thoughts: Likable characters, a bit of intrigue, a headstrong leading lady who wasn’t a member o society, a little history, and a whole lot of banter made this a very enjoyable read. I have to admit that Lisette was my favorite character and it took awhile until I thought Max was good enough for her. In the end, I was rooting for them and looking through my book stacks to see if I have more in this series!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Corrie James / Length: 10 hrs and 58 mins


This was my first Corrie James narration and I was really impressed. She handled different accents very well and her voices were very distinct. I am going to listen to her again.

      It was very different—she was very strong and not at all interested in society. She also more than held her own and wanted to be a private investigator πŸ™‚

    I have only listened to How the Scoundrel Seduces on audio with this series and I just thought that Corrie James was okay..she was much better at a faster speed. πŸ™‚ Some times I think the narrators for historical romances seem to draw out the words a little to much making it go slower than I care for. πŸ™‚ I enjoyed this book when I read it. I missed the second in the series and could have sworn I had it but can’t find it so it’s driving me crazy..going to have to buy it now. πŸ™ I hate reading series out of order but it happens to me all the time.

      I listened at a faster speed (but I tend to listen to all of mine on faster speed). I will listen to a chapter or two in regular speed but honestly I like all narrators faster LOL
