Publisher's Summary

A sensual, erotic story with the rich texture of Regency romance with the spice of erotica.
Margaret Seymour is bored by the stifling constraints of society dictating her behavior as a debutante in search of a husband. Her prospects are promising by the standards of London society, yet, not one of them causes her heart to flutter, or her head to fill with scintillating, forbidden fantasies. Those feelings are reserved for Camden Rycroft, Duke of Avonleah - a man who isn't even aware of her existence.
While attending a scandalous Vauxhall Gardens masquerade, Margaret finds herself in the duke's arms. His promise of a night of pleasure is tempting, but is it worth it when Avonleah is a known rake notorious for his short attention span and avoidance of marriage?
Camden Rycroft is intrigued by the masked vixen he encounters in the Gardens. After one night with her leaves him hungry for more, his desire for her turns into a fiery obsession. Despite the scandal that could ensue from their affair, he finds himself unable to extract himself from a situation destined to end in pain. When faced with losing Margaret to a potential husband, will he rise to the occasion, or risk living without her?

So freaking HOT!!

Let me begin by saying that I had never dipped my toes into the historical/regency pools before this audio. Umm, wow! What’s a great way to dip my toes into the genre!

I was expecting something very tame and demure, but this audiobook was hot! There was so much steam I couldn’t see straight. And I loved it. The chemistry and passion between Camden and Maggie was electric and sizzled from the beginning to the very last minute.

The story was great. The audiobook almost couldn’t move fast enough for me because I needed to know what would happen next. I freaking loved Camden! He was a total a-hole and I loved to hate him and in the end I just plain loved him. I also think he has the best proposal in the history of ever!

Narration is where this story got knocked down a star. Beatrice Pendergast is a fine narrator, she’s actually quite good, but her voice didn’t match the story. She simply sounds much to old to fit the characters and kept drawing me out from the story. Still, the story was so well done and so hot that it pulled me through. Despite its mismatched narration this is one hot story and I’d definitely recommend this audio. 4 Stars.

Passion, duty and romance meets

My ultimate favourite of Victoria Vale’s delightfully naughty and delicious stories! Masks, romance, passion and duty all meet in this wonderfully written story - where a bad duke falls head over heels for an invisible baron’s daughter and passion ensues. Camden Rycroft is the most delicious and gorgeous of Victoria Vale’s men! It’s also a story that hints to being sure enough to being who you are.

A quote which goes well to this story; If you have courage enough you can do without a reputation

A steamy story

A really great story about a young rebellious debutante who feels restricted by society's expectations and restraints. She is expected to select a husband from her suitors but is totally underwhelmed by them all. She has a crush on The Duke of Avonleah, who she secretly lusts after. She manages to 'catch his eye' at a masquerade, one she has been forbidden to attend, held at Vauxhall gardens. Things progress from there.....

This is a really hot read but unfortunately the narrator was poor.
As a British listener the accent was just awful - at times really over the top (in the way Americans think the British speak) and then at others very American - such as the pronunciation of DUTY. Also the narrator sounded like a 90 year old grandma - just all wrong for this type of story. I know that lots of American actors and actresses can successfully undertake an English accent - but this narrator is NOT one of them.

However, I still enjoyed the audiobook - but it could have been so much better.
