Publisher's Summary

A lady of light
Refined, kind, and intelligent, Lady Iris Jordan finds herself the unlikely target of a diabolical kidnapping. Her captors are the notoriously evil Lords of Chaos. When one of the masked - and nude! - lords spirits her away to his carriage, she shoots him...only to find she may have been a trifle hasty.
A duke in deepest darkness
Cynical, scarred, and brooding, Raphael de Chartres, the Duke of Dyemore, has made it his personal mission to infiltrate the Lords of Chaos and destroy them. Rescuing Lady Jordan was never in his plans. But now with the lords out to kill them both, he has but one choice: marry the lady in order to keep her safe.
Caught in a web of danger...and desire
Much to Raphael's irritation, Iris insists on being the sort of duchess who involves herself in his life - and bed. Soon he's drawn both to her quick wit and her fiery passion. But when Iris discovers that Raphael's past may be even more dangerous than the present, she falters. Is their love strong enough to withstand not only the Lords of Chaos but also Raphael's own demons?

Glad I'm done with this book..

Jeez! Are authors ever going to stop writing about Beauty and the Beast type books? There’s either a heroine who’s too plain, too plump, too unattractive, that has a drop-dead gorgeous hero falling in love with her OR a hero with a scarred face, like this one. Time for something new. I’m tired of reading about a scar that bisects his brow and messes with his smile.

Also, this book was so dark that it really needed to come with warnings.

I read this first 5 books in the Maiden Lane series but the more the Ghost of St. Giles was taken out the less interested I was in them. Then I saw where this was the last Maiden Lane book and decided to get it. To me it's a terrible story. I mean, Raphael didn't even smile until somewhere in the last 4 pages and he kept telling Iris he was no good and then that he was evil because of his father's tainted blood. Wow, how many times have I read that in a romance novel. I can't tell you all the dark things that went on in this book, because audible doesn't like it, but you can see my complete review on Goodreads.

There were at least 4 sexual and sex scenes in this and the F-bomb was used 3 times.

As to the narration: It’s always a pleasure listening to Ashford McNab. Her reading voice is great, as well as her emotions.

No Duke of Desire

Never met a Duke so undesirable. Uncommunicative, authoritarian and unwilling to listen till the end.
