Edward Crawdon, Duke of Hartridge, is being forced by his slightly overbearing but loving mother to spend time with her old friends at their estate in Ireland. He does not know it, but a contract exists between the two families stating that Edward must marry their eldest daughter.
On the day of his arrival, Edward meets Lady Rebecca, Caroline's younger sister, under very unusual circumstances. Edward cannot stop thinking about Lady Rebecca, but she is completely unsuited to being a duchess. However, she becomes rather a toast of the Ton, and even though he cannot marry her, Edward realizes that he cannot stand idly by and watch Rebecca marry someone else.
Will Edward admit his true feelings for Rebecca? Will he defy his responsibilities and duties, his idea of a "proper" duchess, and follow his heart?

"Little does Edward Crawdon, Duke of Hartridge, know, but heÕs been secretly promised in marriage for years. When he falls for the younger sister of his intended, a hoyden wholly inappropriate to be a duchess, the gauntlet is thrown down. Narrator Beverly Crick's tony British accent is more grating than enjoyable in this period piece. Little differentiation is made in the voices of the characters, and many sound nasal or whiny. Even those for whom some differentiation is provided are more irritating than enjoyable. CrickÕs intonation has a singsong tendency that detracts, and minor editing errors further tarnish the listening experience. A.C.P. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
