I have found my new favourite Romance author and her name is Claudia Stone! I really enjoyed this book. The narration was lovely and the story was great. The author's sense of humour really shines through. I thought that the hero and heroine were both very endearing and that their Romance was very sweet. I'm looking forward to more audiobooks by this author!
Twenty five year old Isabella is given an ultimatum by her step-mother, find a husband by the end of the London season or marry her step-mother's odious nephew. If she doesn't, Isabella's father will cut her off. After she receives the news, Isabella meets the intimidating Duke of Blackmore, capable of bringing debutantes to tears with a look. Isabella sees through his gruff exterior and offers him a marriage of convenience, surprising him into refusing. When Isabella's London season goes even better than she had hoped, the Duke follows her to London to make her an offer of his own.
This was a sweet clean novella with a perfectly matched hero and heroine! The Duke was big and brooding, with a flaw that made him lovable. Isabella was sweet and brave, not intimidated by his glowers. I liked the bit of background given on the Duke, it explained his behavior perfectly. It didn't feel like a novella at all, both of the characters were fleshed out and interesting. I really enjoyed this one, and it's going on my reread list!
I loved the narration, Stevie Zimmerman was wonderful as always. She performed distinct voices for each character, and her male characters were as convincing as her female characters. It completely immersed me in the story. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.
