Publisher's Summary

A dour duke and a wistful wallflower - an impossible match until fate intervenes one enchanted night.
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.

too much internal dialogue

Would you try another book from Collette Cameron and/or Stevie Zimmerman?

No. I have tried with this author, but I keep forgetting that she can't write dialogue. The H says something,then 10 minutes later the heroine says something else. It is very slowly paced and becomes boring. I use to think her books would be better if they were shorter, but even under 3 hours and this book is too long. The internal dialogue is so stupid that it does nothing for the character development. What a waste.

Has A Diamond for a Duke turned you off from other books in this genre?

Yes. I won't be continuing with this series. I try to keep an open mind on authors, but CC is not one I plan to read again.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narrator is great, but even she can't make a slow uninteresting book into something worth listening to.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disappointment. I really thought less could be more. In this case , it's just less, but at least it is wasting less time too.

Any additional comments?

Audable needs to stop offering new, but terrible books. There are back catalogues of better authors that could be worth recording.

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.
