Publisher's Summary

Destiny will be decided betweenthe sheets in this all-new tale of “The Princess and the Pea.”
For Olivia Lytton, betrothal to the Duke of Canterwick - hardly a Prince Charming - feels more like a curse than a happily-ever-after. At least his noble status will help her sister, Georgiana, secure an engagement with the brooding, handsome Tarquin, Duke of Sconce,a perfect match for her in every way... every way but one. Tarquin has fallen in love with Olivia.
Quin never puts passion before reason. And reason says that Georgiana is his ideal bride. But the sensual, fiery, strong-willed Olivia ignites an unknown longing in him - a desire they are both powerless to resist.
When a scandalous affair begins, they risk losing everything - Olivia’s engagement, her sister’s friendship, and their own fragile love. Only one thing can save them - and it awaits in the bedroom, where a magnificent mattress holds life-changing answers to the greatest romantic riddle of all.

Great Romance with a Twist

Would you listen to The Duke Is Mine again? Why?

Absolutely. Have listened several times already. A great, funny, wonderfully fascinating romantic book, with the disapproving mother-of-the-duke, and all. The characters are great with multiple twists in the plot. In the beginning, and most of the way through, you just can't figure out how all the twists will come out. The ending part was a little slow, but it was necessary to bring all the pieces together. I'd give it 4 1/2 stars out of 5.


What does Susan Duerden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is just wonderful. Makes the different characters come alive. This was my first book by this author, but I bought the book half because Susan Duerden was the narrarator. She's one on the best!


Any additional comments?

This was my first book by Eloisa James. I'm definitely buying some more books by her.

A real surprise, loved it!

I downloaded this book from a sale, and put off listening to it. When I finally did, I had a hard time leaving it. The characters are so much fun, I loved it. The English banter is so amusing, that I found myself laughing out loud several times, along with plenty of drama. It's like watching a stage play, because most of the book is interaction of the characters. Not much in the way of history, or setting scenes, but delving into the lives and thoughts of the main characters. The narrator does a great job, with all the voices, and coming across with the wit and moods implied.
