Publisher's Summary

Miss Lucinda Parnell is out of money. A dismal failure at the Marriage Mart, she'd just as soon leave Society far behind. Desperate to earn funds to retire with her grandmother to the country, Lucy disguises herself as a man to gamble in London's hells. But the Earl of Dartford, an Untouchable she never imagined speaking to let alone spending time with, is onto her in a trice. When he insists on acting as her protector, Lucy fears her chance to remain an independent woman is destined to go up in flames.
After losing his entire family, Andrew Wentworth, Earl of Dartford, built a wall to keep attachments at bay. He believed he could keep Miss Parnell safe without compromising his defenses, but she's exciting and irresistible. Their deepening relationship makes him even more determined to push her away. Nothing will stop him from trying to avoid reliving the anguish of loss. Love is the one risk he doesn't have the heart to dare.

Okay story. Great Narration

So this was an okay story. Nothing exciting or page turning. I liked Lucy's character a lot. She was a strong female lead. It was fun that she dressed up as a man and went gambling. But other than that it was just a typical story. I liked The Earl of Dartford aka the Daring Duke. He was a good character and the chemistry between these two was good. It felt real and genuine.

There was a lot of dialogue throughout the entire book. I like lots of dialogue between characters rather than a bunch of blah blah blah internal dialogue.

As for the narration, it was great. I am a big fan of Marian Hussey. She does such a good job on the men's voices and her reading voice is fantastic.

Great book and awesome narration..

I didn’t like this book as much as The Forbidden Duke but it was still a very good read. This was about Andrew, the Earl of Dartford, who suffered from a serious case of survivor’s guilt. His parents, two sisters and his little brother all died within weeks of each other of some kind of fever and he was afraid that loving someone meant losing them and being hurt again. Lucy went about dressed like a man to gaming hells trying to make enough money to move with her grandmother to Bath, after her father had gambled all the money and Lucy and Grandmama were not going to last with what little they had. Needless to say, Andrew figured out she was a woman and wanted to help her, so that became the beginning of their love story. Neither one of them wanted to marry so they thought they made a good team.

Overall, sad, happy, funny and a HEA. I absolutely love Lucy’s friends Aquilla and Ivy. I’ll be glad when their books are on audible so I can listen to them too.

There was explicit sex in this book, but not erotic.

As to the narration: Marian Hussey did a wonderful job with all the voices and emotions. All the men and women alike had their own individual voices.
