Publisher's Summary

They say he has a black heart. They say he is cold, unscrupulous, and dangerous. They say he killed a woman out of jealousy. 

Robert Beaufort, the duke of Scuffold, has returned to the castle of his forefathers. To be seen with him means the ruin of any woman’s reputation. When Miss Minerva Honeyfield stumbles upon the duke in an enchanted glade deep in the forest, it is too late to heed her aunt’s warnings. 

Her indecent encounter is the most exciting event that has ever happened to Minerva - and also the most dangerous one. Despite knowing that this man is ominous and menacing, Minerva is unable to shield herself from her fascination with the duke of Scuffold.

While Minerva struggles to resign herself to longing for a man who will destroy her name and possibly even threaten her life, her mother suddenly falls into mortal danger - and all indications point to the dark duke. 

Has Minerva truly lost her heart to a ruthless murderer?

Romantic - suspenseful - mysterious. A classical historical romance novel that takes place in the shimmering Regency era. Perfect for listeners who like their heroes to be daring and their heroines to be courageous and a little bit adventurous.

Romantic Who-Done-It!

I love the innocence of Minerva and the excited desire for adventure that she has. This she tries to record by attempting to capture her thoughts and ideas in a novel, one that she dreams will be an instant hit and make her famous.
Of course she and the Duke fall madly in love but there is the mystery of who killed his wife to solve first. Was it him or someone else? They have to find out before they can commit to each other and how this happens makes this story a delightful, suspense filled and entertaining one which I am really happy to recommend.
Marion Hussey adds to this suspenseful story with her unique voices.
I requested and listened to the audiobook version and my unbiased review above is given voluntarily.

Intertwining

I liked how the heroine is an aspiring writer and how her story intertwined with the happenings going on, the mystery, the confusion and the attraction between the characters. This story kept me interested and guessing until the end. The narrator is splendid. I received a complimentary audio and this review is voluntary.

Excruciatingly bad

You expect some ideosyncracies in this genre.
But: The story is more than just silly. Utterly unrealistic, absolutely historically inaccurate and has a cringeworthingly stupid heroine.

Each sentence contains a word or detail that just doesn’t make sense in an 18th century context. Or any other.

I couldn’t bear listening for longer than 10 minutes, it just got worse and worse.

fun and charming

A charming regency romance with a little bit of mystery. A predictable storyline and villain but very entertaining.
