When girl meets Duke, their marriage breaks all the rules…

Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury’s to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: brooding, glowering, menacing London ne’er-do-wells by night. Now there’s a new item on the list. He needs an heir—which means he needs a wife. When Emma Gladstone, a vicar’s daughter turned seamstress, appears in his library wearing a wedding gown, he decides on the spot that she’ll do.

His terms are simple:

- They will be husband and wife by night only.

- No lights, no kissing. 

- No questions about his battle scars.

- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s pregnant with his heir, they need never share a bed again.

But Emma is no pushover. She has a few rules of her own:

- They will have dinner together every evening.

- With conversation.

- And unlimited teasing.

- Last, and most importantly… Once she’s seen the man beneath the scars, he can’t stop her from falling in love…

Quotes & Awards

  • “Mary Jane Wells skillfully voices the characters, their attitudes and attributes enlivened throughout her performance. Wells’ portrayals highlight Ash’s pompous attitude, Emma’s intelligent, humorous personality, and butler Mr. Khan’s caring yet long-suffering disposition. The listener feels transported to the Regency-era London home—and bedroom—of the Duke and Duchess of Ashbury. A fun story with a delightful narration.”


  • “You’ll laugh and cry and everything in between while reading this daring reimagination of Beauty and the Beast that is pure romance at its best. Dare’s gift for crafting humorous repartee is matched by her talent for writing deeply emotional stories filled with steamy love scenes. The well-drawn characters—including a strong heroine, brooding hero, meddlesome butler, and stray cat—along with the witty dialogue, keep the pages flying and readers highly satisfied.”

    RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)
