Publisher's Summary

A Mischievous Charade...
Harriet, Duchess of Berrow, is tired of her title and the responsibilities that come along with it. Enough with proper tea parties and elegant balls; what Harriet really wants is to attend an outrageous soiree where she can unleash her wildest whims and desires. But to attend such an event - especially if the event in question is Lord Justinian Strange's rollicking fete, filled with noble rogues and rotters, risqué ladies and illicit lovers - would be certain scandal. That's why she must disguise herself....
Looking forward to a night of uninhibited pleasure, Lord Strange is shocked to discover that beneath the clothes of a no-good rake is the most beautiful woman in the room. Why is a woman like her risking her reputation at his notorious affair? And can he possibly entice her to stay...forever?

Unique Story-Great Narrator

"Dutchess By Night" takes you through a gamut of emotions, as one comes to expect from Eloisa James, and Susan Duerden gave an excellent performance. I don't remember hearing Susan Duerden read before, but she's one of the best I've heard. I will look for books that she narrates in the future.

Any additional comments?

I bought this book cautiously because the reviews were not all that great but I liked the book. I like it when the sexual tension is drawn out in a book and the reader is left in suspension and this book certainly delivers.
Harriet is determined to have a bit of fun after she is ignored for a couple of years by society due to her husband’s suicide. She is viewed as the cause of the Duck’s death and unhappiness. She travels with to the disreputable home of Lord Strange with two friends but she attends as a man to protect her name. Lord Strange is immediately attracted to her feminine beauty and has to deal with his internal battle of liking someone he believes to be a man. He eventually figures out she is not a man and sets out to seduce her. Since she is not aware of being discovered, his attentions make her uncomfortable about liking a man she thinks is now interested in men. The only issue she lies about by omitting is that she is a Duchess. He does not like titles and even more strongly higher titles. Discovering her identity can ruin the relationship she finds herself in with a man she loves. Now you’ll just have to read the book to see how she deals with that obstacle.
