Publisher's Summary

Emilia MacNeil is an independent miss. Truth be told, she's a bit of a tomboy, and many's the proper lady who has called her a hussy for her sometimes less than ladylike behavior. But Emilia remains unrepentant. She's as good as any man, and better than some, and the last thing she wants is to be married to any of them. She'll happily be an aunt to her siblings' children, but she wants nothing to do with marriage.
Enter Lord Cedric Hanson, Duke of Roxburgh. According to her father the Marquess, the Duke is to be her husband, but Emilia refuses to comply. When she is brought back after her first attempt at escape is foiled, she vows to take the battle to the enemy, so to speak. But every attempt she makes to escape is hindered, first by the guards who accompany her and her father to the Duke's seat, and afterwards by the Duke himself. Their game of hide and seek eventually leads to more, as Emilia finds herself reluctantly admiring the man who would take her freedom. Admiration becomes arousal...becomes more. In the end, on her wedding day, Emilia must choose between the independence she has fought for all her life and the man she has come to love.

Not Inspiring

All of the escape attempts.

No. This was not an inspiring story for me.

Strange, stranger, and weird

What would have made this romance irresistible?

I am not sure.

Any additional comments?

This had to be an earlier copy of the story. the narrator made scenes run together and when she made mistakes in her narration they were not taken out. I got this book via audiobook boom.

Any additional comments?

This audiobook was given to me for a honest unbiased review. This was a good short read. I love these regency books. This was a perfect size novella that had all the stops, between love historical details, and passionate characters. A very sweet good read.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would not recommend this book to my friends because like me they would straight away cringe at an American accent reading an obviously English period piece. It just does not work.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The story was ruined right from the beginning by having an American reading it. The intonation needed for some of the very specifically English words was all wrong. I have no idea if an American audience would notice that, but I speak very clear Oxford English and I certainly did. The script was weak and silly and needed toughening up. No English Aristocrat would be such a lame duck. No lady would risk her honor by leaving without any plans, or money, or place to go and a companion.

Do you think A Lady's Powerful Duke needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I am really sorry but I would rewrite this book and have no follow up. I would only use an English narrator or one who could fake the correct diction.
The bare bones are good there is great room for improvement it just needs more excitement. A real running away scene with an exciting rescue would fit the bill. Some hot romance.
