Publisher's Summary

London 1814... Drake, Duke of Manchester is searching the Marriage Mart for a perfect bride. He wants a woman who is poised, sophisticated, and worthy of the title Duchess. But most of all, he wants a woman who does not want the useless emotion of love.
Socially awkward Miss Penelope Clayton isn't meant for marriage. A serious botanist, she has no desire to wed, so being forced by her guardian to participate in the Season to find a husband is torture. She'll never fit in with the ton, especially if they discover she's been pretending to be a man within the scientific community.
As Drake's family makes over Penelope, turning her from naive bluestocking to enchanting debutante, he is put upon to introduce her to society and eligible bachelors. Despite dance lessons and new gowns, Penelope is the opposite of poised and sophisticated as she stumbles from one mishap to the next. Why then, does he find it so hard to resist her?

Cute okay story, narrator went down hill.

This was a cute story, I liked the heroine enough, however she could have been a bit stronger. I did like her awkwardness it made for some funny moments. As for the hero, he was a bit annoying with the "perfect duchess" comments all the time. There was a couple sex scenes, mildly written, but they were nice.

The story line was okay but it was a bit lacking and could have been better. it was a pretty mindless read, meaning, nothing much to follow along with. If you missed a chapter it was no big deal. There was a lot of dialogue throughout so that was good.

As for the narration... well, it was not very good. I listened to this book directly after the first one of the series which was The Elusive Wife. The narration in that book was great, except for Drake's voice. In that book he sounded like a high pitched whiny female, but he wasn't the main character so who cares right? Well guess what? She didn't change his voice for this book at all. It was awful. It was really hard to get past.
