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.

Pleasantly Suprised

I'm not sure why. .but I went into this book expecting it not to be that good. I was wrong! This book had a good plot, with a mystery, and nicely blossoming romance.

I liked both Lisette and Max and thought they were a good match. There was good dialogue between them. I did think Max was overly "Dukel" (if that's the correct spelling) but that may have been the narrator's influence also.

The narration was also good. I felt it was well preformed and not just "read". I am not a big fan of French voices done by most narrators, but in this case they were pretty good.

I would rate it R...but not the most descriptive love scenes I've ever listened to....but not too tame either.

I am really looking forward to the whole series. I think it is worth a credit and definitely worth it if you ever catch it on sale (which may be why I had it in my library in the first place)
