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.

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!

Grating on the ears
I realize that the romance category is not known for it’s clever plots, but this book is definitely in the lower end of the scales. It has potential, the story could be good, but as it is it seems badly executed. I cringe at the holes in logic and contradictory building of characters. A wife who shares her husbands fondness for gambling, is not likely to keep him in check.
Add to that a monotone narrator who ends every sentence on a low note and you have a rather insulting piece of work. I can only attribute my finishing this book to my OCD. I give it two stars because it could have been rather entertaining.
