Historical romance /to review

Francesca and her mother left London years ago because of a scandal. Now she is back, she needs money and she thinks her uncle should help. But before that, a wallflower season.

Giles is a Duke, he should get married so he has chosen a nice pretty girl. Nothing could go wrong. Then he meets her annoying cousin, Francesca.

Oh these two do not like each other. Giles says some mean things and the ton is looking at the train wreck. But at the same time they fancy the pants of each other.

The second part of the book is them being married, and drama ensues cos lies and secrets. Giles should have told her the truth, idiot.

I liked the side characters we meet. Francescas cousin was really nice and will get her own hea in this book. So no one is stealing a fiance here. Francescas uncle was an ass.

Great narration that kept me hooked. I have listened to her narrations before and they are always top notch.

One should never judge a duke by his cover. As far as London society knows, Giles Drew, the Duke of Basingstoke, is everything a proper aristocrat ought to be. But when a notorious scandal sheet publishes details of Giles’s questionable bedroom antics, only one bride can salvage his reputation.

Prim and penniless, Francesca Stanhope has resigned herself to a season full of the ton’s snickering—until the Duke of Basingstoke’s dizzying courtship transforms her fate. Yet wedded bliss quickly turns into a clash of wills as Franny realizes her handsome duke is a devil in disguise.

But beneath the newlywed’s skirmishes lies scorching heat. And while each attempts to tame the other, the truth is that this unconventional union may be all either could ever desire . . .


  1. The title is a little odd, right? Glad to hear Francesca's cousin got a hea given the circumstances.

  2. Sounds like a fun historical romance and well narrated is great.

  3. Lies and not telling the truth it's always the downfall in a story and in a relationship.

  4. A good narrator always makes a story even better.

  5. Ooh interesting that they get married and then three's more to the story. That's a bit different.
