Publisher's Summary

Vanessa Fitzwilliam is in dire straits. Her father's death a year ago left her with a crumbling manor and a handful of old retainers relying on her for support. When the Duke of Northbridge sweeps into her life with a surprise proposal, Vanessa is tempted - but the arrogant duke believes her to be something she's not.
Hardened by the ravages of war, Northbridge seeks a wife who will provide him with an heir but make no demands on his emotions. The scandalously experienced Vanessa, neither clinging nor innocent, seems the perfect choice. But Northbridge isn't prepared for her reluctance to accept him, or his own fierce reaction to her beauty.
To fulfill his desires, Northbridge is prepared to be ruthless, but can he bend Vanessa to his will? Or has the Duke met his match?

poor story worse narration

What disappointed you about The Duke's Blackmailed Bride?

The accent of the narrator was almost unintelligable. This was so heavily accented as to be straight from outside the ton and certainly not"quality".

What was most disappointing about Leigh D' Ansey’s story?

There was no story buildup so who cared about either character.

How could the performance have been better?

If the spoken word was in English and not heavy Irish it would have been understandable.

Any additional comments?

Dire Narration - the worst in my 800 audio books

Would you try another book from Leigh D' Ansey and/or Allison Cope?


What do you think your next listen will be?

Don't know

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Awful phrasing. Pauses in totally inappropriate places Extremely strong accent made several words incomprehensible. I have over 800 titles in my Audible collections and this is the worst ever narration by a country mile. I am sorry to say this, but even I could do better! I usually don't leave negative feed back but this truly deserves in.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger at the thought that the narrator (a) might have been paid for this and (b) that Audible inflicted this on the public
