Audio: A Duke Changes everything - Christy Carlyle

Narrated by: Karen Cass
Length: 9 hrs and 27 mins
Unabridged Audiobook
Release date: 11-27-18
Series: The Duke's Den
Publisher: HarperAudio

My Thoughts:
Poor Nick. He really hated his dad and the place he grew up. It was pretty obvious then when his dad was dead, and his brother was a wastrel that tadaa, Nick becomes Duke and hates it.
And I did like Nick. He did everything he could to make it on his own, with no help, not that he would have gotten it from a dad who hated him. I totally understood why he hated the place where he grew up, it is told early on.

Then there is Mina, whose father died and she took on the job as steward since the previous Duke did not care. And she loves her job, the castle and the people in it. She was tough and sweet. Hardworking and smart. But then comes a Duke who changes everything.

The book is about him wanting to get rid of the place and she trying to make him see the beauty. And obviously these two falling in love too. Then there is the usual you are a Duke, I am a nobody! Some wicked neighbors, and some idiots from his life in London. There are always people who tries to take you down.

Conclusion:
I enjoyed this tale. I do love a Duke!

Narrator
I really liked her voice for him, it was well done. All other voices worked great too. She had a tone and followed along for the ride.

Synopsis
Nicholas Lyon gambled his way into a fortune and ownership of the most opulent, notorious gentlemen's club in England. But when Nick's cruel brother dies, he inherits a title he never wanted. The sooner Nick is rid of the estate that has always haunted him, the sooner he can return to the life he's built in London. But there's one obstacle-the exquisite Thomasina Thorne.

When the new heir to the Tremayne dukedom suddenly appears in Mina Thorne's life, she's flustered. Not only is he breathtakingly handsome, but he's also determined to take away her home and position as steward of the Enderley estate. If Mina learns what makes the enigmatic duke tick, perhaps she can change his mind-as long as she doesn't get too close to him.

With each day Nick spends with Mina, his resolve weakens as their colliding wills lead to explosive desire. Could she be the one woman who can help him finally bury the ghosts of his past?
