Publisher's Summary

A 2015 Virginia Romance Writers HOLT Award of Merit recipient for outstanding literary fiction in the Romance Novella category.

Victorian Era England...

As far as rash decisions go, it was formidable. But Lady Jocelyn Rathbourne's will remains strong. If the only way to save her family's estate and reputation is by aiming a small pistol at the Duke of Calydon, then so be it. For Lady Jocelyn demands satisfaction - and she will have it at any cost. Even if it means demanding the hand of the intense and foreboding Duke himself....

But she's made the first move against a very dangerous opponent....

For Sebastian Thornton is no stripling to be trifled with. The lady has played her hand. Now it's his turn. For Sebastian is in need of a wife. And to find a wife with spirit and fire - even if she means to only marry for his money - would be a great prize indeed. And he intends to thoroughly take his pleasure with her... and demands his own satisfaction in return.

Short in length, huge in entertainment!

What a lot of book in such a short tale. I wanted MORE! Set near the end of the 19th century and full of all the things we love about romance in that time.

Excellent performance, very hot, and worth the money. But it costs less than a credit!!!!

Good short story

I generally always like Stacy Reid's lounger stories and thought I would give this short one a try. It was overall good, but with shorter stories, it was rushed. While I like my books to be over 200 pages, this one, even though it was under the 200 page mark was actually pretty good. While I do believe it would have been better if it were longer, the story flowed and the rushed feeling I receive when reading short stories wasn't as much as it had been with other shorter books. I would recommend this book for a quick read that introduces you to the Duke's family. The other stories are longer, more evenly paced, and are a solid 5🌟. Since I felt this was a little rushed, it earned 4🌟.

Short and Sweet

I wanted a short audible for my work jaunt. This one fit the bill. Great start, and entertaining until the end. It's nothing deep, but wasn't looking for that. I'd recommend it.

Horrible Narrator

I am so angry because I used a credit on this. The narrator was so horrible I couldn't get past the first chapter.

Saucy, sexy and swift regency novella

Bumped the speed to 1.3x and once I got over the childish, almost Moaning Myrtle voice for Jocelyn, I enjoyed this feisty regency novella. In 2.5 hrs, there’s just enough plot, pluck, and Fx to enjoy. The two sex scenes are pretty typical for regency, but steamy enough to match scarred, scowling Sebastian and his daring, Derringer toting Duchess. Borrowed this for free in the final month of Audible Escapes... but might be willing to purchase on sale.

Ridiculous

It's so bad and the narrator's voice makes everyone sound like they're a ten year old girl, including the duke.

Too short, too flat

I knew this was a 2 hour book, but i didn't anticipate that 2 hrs would be such a waste of time. This could have been a good story but it's timeline sped fast. As a result, neither the plot or the on characters have made themselves worthy of a read.

Love Stacy Reid - horrible narrator

Once again Ms. Reid has been let down by the narrator. I couldn’t finish the other book because of the absolutely disastrous narrator and it happened here again in this one. Her stories deserve better! Thankfully it is short.

NOPE

I had reward 3 books from Wedded by Scandal series which where very good and searched for more books, the rating was very low and typically I would have not read but again the other books where good, sadly this one did NOT deliver. You can not write a worthy romance with such short time, you just can’t you don’t fall in love with the characters or cheer them on bc there was just not time to develop them. Sorry this one is a bummer.
