Publisher's Summary

After years of playing the rake to hide a dark family secret, the Duke of Aversley feels tainted beyond redemption and cynical beyond repair. Never does he imagine hope will come in the form of a quirky, quick-witted lady determined to win the heart of another gentleman.
Thanks to a painfully awkward past, Lady Amelia De Vere long ago relinquished the notion she was a flower that had yet to blossom. But when her family faces financial ruin and the man she has always loved is on the verge of marrying another, she'll try anything to transform herself to capture her childhood love and save her family - including agreeing to participate in a bet between her brother and the notorious, dangerously handsome Duke Of Aversley.
Bound by the bet, Amelia and Aversley discover unexpected understanding and passion beyond their wildest dreams, if only they can let go of their pride, put trust in each other and chance losing their hearts.

Forgot about my life's tribulations reading it. LOVED IT

I absolutely adore this book. ADULT mature characters, engaging story and a Duke that makes all other men I know seem very small in comparison. I stayed up until 2 am reading this book even though I had to be at work by 8 am. You will absolutely love it too.

Pretty good story and good narration.

This was a pretty good story, I liked the heroine, Amelia well enough in that she was strong for the most part and knew what or thought she wanted. I liked Aversley too. He was strong, handsome and rich. And he wanted to stay Rich. LOL There was a bit of attraction denial between these two for a while but they got past it. There was a very mildly written sex scene.

The story line and plot was pretty good, I liked the wager part of it. It developed pretty well too. There were a couple of annoying moments but not much. There was lots of dialogue throughout the entire book so that was a bonus.

As for the narration, it was good. I like Tim Campbell he does the women's voices well and the everyone does get their own voice. He reads with emotion and and has a nice reading voice.

Disappointing narrator

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The pronunciation and strained vowels of the narrator spoiled the story for me

What did you like best about this story?

The characters and plot

What didn’t you like about Tim Campbell’s performance?

His pronunciation of many words was strained and unnatural

Did My Fair Duchess inspire you to do anything?

I would read the book and others by this author
