Publisher's Summary

The one woman he will never forget
Malcolm Bevingstoke, Duke of Haven, has lived the last three years in self-imposed solitude, paying the price for a mistake he can never reverse and a love he lost forever. The dukedom does not wait, however, and Haven requires an heir, which means he must find himself a wife by summer's end. There is only one problem - he already has one.
The one man she will never forgive
After years in exile, Seraphina, Duchess of Haven, returns to London with a single goal - to reclaim the life she left and find happiness, unencumbered by the man who broke her heart. Haven offers her a deal: Sera can have her freedom just as soon as she finds her replacement - which requires her to spend the summer in close quarters with the husband she does not want but somehow cannot resist.
A love that neither can deny
The duke has a single summer to woo his wife and convince her that, despite their broken past, he can give her forever, making every day The Day of the Duchess.

Narrator just ruined the book for me

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Perhaps in print but not in audio version.


Would you listen to another book narrated by Justine Eyre?

No, her over dramatization prevents me from actually getting into the story. The male voices are the worst. Usually I complete a book before moving on to another, but this book required breaks. Just couldn't listen for very long even though I've enjoyed Sarah MacLean's books in the past.

Disappointing

Oh, it kills me to not enjoy a Sarah MacLean book. And I hate to write a less than stellar review. But this book was not enjoyable. The writing was fantastic, as usual, and the dialogue was typical SM, witty and fun especially when the sisters were involved. I just didn't like the entire premise of the story. And the whole regency version of The Bachelor was a little much. The plot is available elsewhere so I'm not going into it but there was too much angst and annoyance for me to enjoy. Sure, a good book will tug at all emotions and I like that. This book just made me uncomfortable and finishing it was, frankly, a chore - something no other of Sarah's books has ever done. She's a fabulous author but this is not her best.

Justine Eyre does her fabulous good work with the narration of the audiobook. At times it was difficult to determine right away which dialogue was spoken and which was only thought. Not the narrator's fault but something authors may want to keep in mind.

I'm so disappointed by this book. I assume Sarah MacLean will give us more great books in the future.
