A dour duke....
Jules, the Sixth Duke of Dandridge disdains Society and all its trappings, preferring the country's solitude and peace. Already jaded and cynical since the woman he loved died years ago, he's become even more so since unexpectedly inheriting a dukedom's responsibilities and finding himself the target of every husband-hunting vixen in London.
A wistful wallflower....
Forever in her stunning sister's shadow, Jemmah Dament has adored Jules from afar for years - since as children they were the best of friends. She daren't dream she can win a duke's heart any more than she hopes to escape the life of servitude imposed on her by an uncaring mother. Jemmah knows full well, Jules is too far above her station. Besides, his family has already selected his perfect duchess: a poised, polished, exquisite blueblood.
But one enchanted night....
A chance encounter reunites Jules and Jemmah, resulting in a passionate interlude neither can forget. Jules realizes he wants more - much more - than Jemmah's sweet kisses or her warming his bed. He must somehow convince her to gamble on a dour duke. But can Jemmah trust a rogue promised to another? One who's sworn never to love again?
Caution: This historical regency romance contains a duke who literally thumbs his nose at society, a sweet and intelligent wallflower with a secret dream, a villainess worthy of a fairy tale, and two delightful match-making dowagers.

wonderful story - a must
Wow I loved this story. I haven’t laughed that hard in quite sometime. Cameron is an extremely talented writer mixing wit and wisdom. I can’t wait to read more of her books. I thought Stevie Zimmerman's performance was fantastic.

A Diamond for a Duke is the retelling of a Cinderella-like story by Charles Perrault entitled Toads and Diamonds. This is a heartwarming tale of a lonely Duke and a young lady treated little better than a servant by her mother and older sister. They are childhood friends who lost touch with each other. Is it possible that these two friends could find their happily ever after with each other? Aunt Theo and Lady Lockhart, aka the fairy godmothers in this tale, think so and embark on a plan to make it happen.
This story has all the elements of a good fairy tale. There is a sweet damsel and a gallant rescuer. There are nasty villains and fairy godmothers to thwart them.
Collette Cameron has written a happy and humorous story that will put a smile on your face. Stevie Zimmerman brings this charming story to life. Her narration is a pleasure to listen to and her voices are wonderful.
