Duke most wicked by Lenora Bell

Narrated by: Beverley A. Crick


Series: Wallflowers vs. Rogues, Book 3


Length: 10 hrs and 8 mins


Release date: 09-27-22


Publisher: HarperAudio


Historical romance/to review






I remember him now from a previous book, what an ass I thought. But like all rakish Dukes this one also has to be reformed.




Viola is the music teacher to a Dukes younger sisters. She is great at het job and she loves music and composing. She is also fancies the very annoying Duke.




Brendan is a rake. I get that his childhood was rought, but gambling his sisters dowries away, and giving them all bad reps. Man up Brendan!




They both like each other, but she just works for him, and he needs an heiress. But we all know it works out in the end and they live happily ever after.




Fun romance. I do wonder if his sisters is getting a series too?




Good narration. I have listened to and enjoyed this narrator before.






Scarred by a dark secret, Brandan Delamar, Duke of Westbury, must concede his misdeeds have finally caught up with him. With five younger sisters to support, he must marry for money.




Sunny and steadfast, Viola Beaton is no heiress. As music instructor to the duke’s sisters, she’s developed a genuine affection for the bright young ladies. Unfortunately, she’s also developed a forbidden passion for her wildly attractive employer.




It must be the way he inspires her to compose sonatas about moonlight and kisses. Or how his gaze smolders and lingers on her skin. Or because he makes her heart whisper impossible things.




When Westbury decrees that he’ll choose not only a bride, but grooms for his sisters, Viola can’t allow him to curtail their freedom. She strikes a bargain: if he allows his sisters to attend the Season, Viola will chaperone them and keep them safe from scandal.


Only…what if Viola and the duke are the ones most likely to cause a scandal?

The love hypothesis

Format: 356 pages, Paperback


Published: September 14, 2021 by Berkley Books


Contemporary romance /Library





Finally a hyped book that was actually good! I am so scared of them cos hype books usually turn out to suck. But not this one (though wtf tiktok was talking about this one being smutty I do not know).




Olive is one busy woman and then well she needs a pretend boyfriend and her "victim" turns out the be the strict professor everyone is scared of. She is fun, sweet and I liked her.




Adam, well yes he is super grumpy, but also super sweet behind that facade. And him with her, oh I liked it from the start. They were perfect for each other, and the pretend relationship needed to be real!




Awww these two. A sweet book and I loved the stem world, I truly need to read more of her books...all of them!!






As a third-year Ph.D. candidate, Olive Smith doesn't believe in lasting romantic relationships--but her best friend does, and that's what got her into this situation. Convincing Anh that Olive is dating and well on her way to a happily ever after was always going to take more than hand-wavy Jedi mind tricks: Scientists require proof. So, like any self-respecting biologist, Olive panics and kisses the first man she sees.




That man is none other than Adam Carlsen, a young hotshot professor--and well-known ass. Which is why Olive is positively floored when Stanford's reigning lab tyrant agrees to keep her charade a secret and be her fake boyfriend. But when a big science conference goes haywire, putting Olive's career on the Bunsen burner, Adam surprises her again with his unyielding support and even more unyielding... six-pack abs.




Suddenly their little experiment feels dangerously close to combustion. And Olive discovers that the only thing more complicated than a hypothesis on love is putting her own heart under the microscope.
