Publisher's Summary

Simon Basset, the irresistible Duke of Hastings, has hatched a plan to keep himself free from the town's marriage-minded society mothers. He pretends to be engaged to the lovely Daphne Bridgerton. After all, it isn't as if the brooding rogue has any real plans to marry - though there is something about the alluring Miss Bridgerton that sets Simon's heart beating a bit faster.

And as for Daphne, surely the clever debutante will attract some very worthy suitors now that it seems a duke has declared her desirable. But as Daphne waltzes across ballroom after ballroom with Simon, she soon forgets that their courtship is a complete sham. And now she has to do the impossible and keep herself from losing her heart and soul completely to the handsome hell-raiser who has sworn off marriage forever!

    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this romance. It is a good story with good characters. The Bridgeton family is made up of 9 great characters - the mother and 8 children. Daphne, the eldest daughter is the heroine in this book. She get involved with the Duke of Hastings who suffers with a stammer and his hatred of his wicked father. Can the love a good woman help him get over his problems?

    Story
    "A Book That Evokes Powerful Emotions!"
    If you could sum up The Duke and I in three words, what would they be?

    Love conquers all.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The overall story: The old Duke's loss because of his pride. The results from the young Earl living his life for revenge against his father, the Duke; even after he is gone. A secret sham marriage proposal between the young Duke and his best friends sister.


    Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have enjoyed Ms. Landor's narrations many times. They were all excellent.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The folly of pride and revenge.


    Any additional comments?

    Well written and narrated, well worth a credit.

    "mostly good with slight consent issues"

    This book is mostly good and fun, but ends up with some really uncomfortable consent issues halfway through, unfortunately.

    "loved the book!"

    Overalll a very good book and I am super glad the couple got their happy ending. I really enjoyed the 2nd epilogue but would have to say it was a bit long. I feel like it could have been several minutes shorter. it was nice hearing how the characters lives were though.

    ""I fancy you in response to I adore you""

    That response made me burst out laughing. It was a cute book. Typical love story with a similar storyline nevertheless entertaining.

    "At Last!"

    I read this book years ago and have hoped it would finally be recorded with Rosalyn Landor's excellent narration. Thank you! Waiting for the rest of the early Bridgerton books.

    Story
    "At last - the Bridgertons come to audio in style!"

    It's been some time since I read the book and I'd forgotten how damn good it is. The romance between Simon and Daphne is beautifully developed and I adored how the author shows that Simon - in particular - is head-over-heels in love without knowing it or suspecting it.

    The angsty parts work very well; I know that Daphne's actions towards the end of the book are practically unforgiveable, but they are, to an extent, understandable, if not excusable.

    Rosalyn Landor's narration is everything any listener could want and is absolutely on the button every time. There are a handful of other narrators I adore who could undoubtedly have made a good job of this, but I honestly don't think any one of them could have done it quite as well. RL is something special when it comes to historical romance, and proves it yet again here.
