Bridgerton: The Duke and I
- Bridgerton Family, Book 1
- Written by: Julia Quinn
- Narrated by: Rosalyn Landor
- Length: 12 hrs and 9 mins
By all accounts, Simon Basset is on the verge of proposing to his best friend's sister - the lovely and almost-on-the-shelf - Daphne Bridgerton. But the two of them know the truth - it's all an elaborate ruse to keep Simon free from marriage-minded society mothers. And as for Daphne, surely she will attract some worthy suitors now that it seems a duke has declared her desirable. But as Daphne waltzes across ballroom after ballroom with Simon, it's hard to remember that their courtship is a sham.

The rendition is too theatric and jarring
Loved the story, but the narration is jarring!
it grates on your words, the overdose of dramatics. the narrator has a tendency to be shrill while switching between characters. Dilutes the depth for me.
