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!
The show ruined me, still a worthy read
Though the show was so good it made the story seem watered down, it was still worth the push through to finish, as the story had slight differences and great quotes to draw from
I listened the book after watching the show and I love it ! I love the narration.
This series was highly recommended to me by family, and I really enjoyed the show. However, this book was a very slow read, and the narrator was my least liked out of the 15 books I’ve listened to in the last 2 months. I don’t think I’ll purchase any more from this series.
