Publisher's Summary

As a notorious member of the Heirs' Club, Bray Drakestone can't resist a challenge from one of his well-heeled colleagues - especially when it involves money and horses. But the friendly wager takes an unexpected and deadly turn.

Bray is forced to agree to marry one of his challenger's five sisters - sight unseen. Now gamblers all over London are placing bets on whether Bray will actually go through with it.... Miss Louisa Prim, the eldest sister, doesn't care a whit what the reckless rogue at the Heirs' Club promised her brother - she has no intention of marrying the future duke of Drakestone. Bray, however, sees her rejection as another challenge. He bets that the fiery Miss Prim will not only agree to marry him; she will propose to him! But why does her opponent have to be a divinely handsome scoundrel? And so sweetly, irresistibly seductive....

Wonderful!

I realllly liked this book! It was a joy to listen to.... I laughed, and smiled, and shed a tear tear and there.... Amelia Grey has written a most enjoyable story full of rich characters, beautiful visuals and true emotion. This was a great happy-ever-after romance which will go onto my "Listen again, someday" list.

NARRATOR : Barrie Kreinek deliverd a excellent performance with all of the good qualities and none of the bad! Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

CREDITWORTHY? : Heavens yes! If you love a good historical romance then you can't go wrong!

HEAT FACTOR? : Very little... Some chemistry... a clear visual, a little steam but no real heat.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

This book made my Mother's Day complete!

I loved this book! From beginning to end it was one of those can't stop listening to it books. The characters are all so special. I didn't want it to end. I laughed so hard at the part when the Duke first goes to meet his new wards, it was genius! Amelia Grey is new to me, but has shot to the top of my must read list. I'm am a self proclaimed romance super fan, considering the volume of romances I have either read or listened to well over 500, so when I say get "get this one" I can tell you with confidence, you're going to love it.

The narrator can either make or break a book for me. If I'm going through a time when I want to find something new, I might look at what a really good narrator has done in the past, which I started doing with my all time favor narrator, Josephine Bailey. I honestly thought, at times, that the narrator was Josephine Bailey. I just hope Barrie Kreinik will narrate all of Amelia Grey's books, past as well as future books, because the combination is wonderful!

Missing something

The book was satisfactory, a little more romance would have been nice. It felt like something was missing from the story.

Fun and easy

I’m not sorry I listened. It was totally predictable but cute and I liked the hero. heroine was a bit annoying at times but it didn’t ruin it. There was a bit of steam and H and H had chemistry

Heartwarming

An easy listen. No huge drama, I mean you witness a death, attempted mugging, and a physical altercation, yet they are approached in the book as if nothing really happened. My favorite part was the family dinner. Before and after the Duke arrived.

Historical romance with two stubborn characters

My first experience with this author and also this narrator. I enjoyed both. Duke Bray Drakestone is having a devil of a time with Miss Louisa Prim. The woman refuses to marry him. Both Bray and Louisa are headstrong, proud, arrogant and come from completely different upbringings. Let the HEA challenge begin. Adding to the fun of the story are Miss Prim's four active younger sisters. Be aware of a few kissing scenes and one fairly explicit scene. These do not take over the charm of the story and can be easily skimmed.

Unsatisfactory ending

The story was great, but there were a lot of gaps. The ending was especially unsatisfactory. So many unanswered questions!

Romantic and Fun

The story is romantic, amusing and fun even if at times heart wrenching. I loved the leading characters but the young sisters added a lot of fun to the story. The narrator made the story come to life. This is the first time I listen to a story for this author but I plan to listen to more.
