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.

Wonderful Story

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.

Childhood romance comes true.

Jules, the Sixth Duke of Dandridge, has had his fill of society. His preference is the countryside. He loved once at a young age and has since sworn of marriage. His uncles and aunts constantly prompt him to marry. Ton mamas throw their daughters at him.

It is at one of these overbearing events, as Jules is dashing away from a young lady that he comes upon Jemmah Dament his childhood friend and childhood confidant. They were the best of friends. Jules finds her asleep on one of the library settees. As she awakens, she also awakens Jules desires for her. Jemmah has loved Jules from afar for many years but always believing he was far to above her station.

Jemmah' meddling mother, of course, wishes for Jules to make a match with her older sister. Both her mother and sister have treated Jemmah harshly she has been neglected and ignored by them. Jules, however, thumbs his nose at society and pledges his love for her.

This is truly a Cinderella/Prince charming novel. Ms Cameron carefully developed her characters and pulls at your heart strings routing for them to make it. I enjoy this book from being to end. I would highly recommend it.
