Publisher's Summary

Maximilian Cale, the Duke of Lyons, long ago buried his grief for his missing elder brother, Peter, who was presumed dead after being kidnapped. When a mysterious note arrives from Tristan Bonnaud asserting that the Duke's brother is alive, it leads Max straight to the winsome Lisette Bonnaud, illegitimate daughter of a viscount and Tristan's sister.
Soon he and Lisette are traveling to Paris posing as husband and wife, in search of Tristan, who has disappeared. And the longer he spends with Lisette, the easier it is for Max to see that the line between dukedom and desire is easier to cross than he imagined....

Romance, Mystery, and a Duke.

This is a fast paced romance with mystery that held my interest throughout. The story was believable and the two main characters (Maximilian and Lizette) had some great chemistry. I enjoyed the bantering between made the story endearing. The other characters added some depth to the story which should make any other books in the series even more entertaining.

The narrator was great. She had a way of changing her voice for every character. Her French accent was realistic too.

I am looking forward to more books in this series.

For those fellow listeners out there who know SJ's work then you know what you're going to get from her historical romances - but if you haven't heard of her before then this book is just why she's an auto download and a non-stop listen for me.

This is the story of Max and Lisette, two very likeable characters who have instant chemistry and a nice slow building romance ensues as they embark on an adventure to solve mysteries and finally get some hard won but maybe unwanted answers and along the way they encounter some fascinating characters that are villainous, charming, intriguing or just plain nice. As the truth and lies begin to unfold so too does the blossoming romance and by the end of their quest they've laughed, cried, lost much but they have also found love.

Worth a credit? Yes, and I'm looking forward to spending more on the next in the series.
