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!

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.

During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
