Publisher's Summary

An American heiress nobody wants; a duke every woman desires; and a murder no one expects.
As a young duke, all Nathaniel wants is to be left alone. So when he meets Charlotte, an outspoken American heiress, he is suspicious of her indifference. Too many women have sought - and failed - to catch him.
However, Charlotte is unimpressed by his title. She has no interest in English dukes. All she wants is to leave dreary England and travel to the sunny sands of Egypt to see the grand pyramids.
Unfortunately, a debutante seeking to entrap Nathaniel gets murdered, and his reputation as a confirmed misogynist makes him a suspect. On impulse, Charlotte comes to his aid, unaware that her actions place her in danger, too.
Neither Charlotte nor the duke know that a highwayman interested in rich heiresses is following Charlotte, and that another debutante lies dead in Nathaniel's carriage. And unfortunately, the evidence soon complicates Nathaniel's efforts to prove his innocence and convince Charlotte that he is worthy of her love.
Some nights just don't go as planned.

Cute, but....

Grammatical errors or not, this was a cute book!!! But my heavens how can one woman be SO stupid when she's (supposedly) so smart?! Silliness!

Will I listen again, probably not.
The story was good.
The narrator was good.
The problems were tolerable.
But Charlotte was SO irritating!

Clean.

Murder, Mayhem in Recency London

Passed from relative to relative,this American bluestocking has adventures galore and has to choose between Egyptian archaeological discoveries or true love with a Duke.
