G that the Duke's brother is alive it leads Max straight to the winsome Lisette Bonnaud illegitimate daughter of a viscount and Tristan's sister Soon he and Lisette are traveling to Paris posing as hu. Rating 3 out of 5The daughter of an English lord who promised her mother his French mistress marriage Lisette has grown up wary of men Correctly so as her social standing in life affords no marriage propositions but promises of a different kind The Duke of Lyons is borne of a family of mad men Fear of putting a wife through the nightmare his mother had to go through Maximilian does not want to marry but his duty to bring about an heir means that sooner or later he has to marryThe search for Max’s presumed dead older brother brings to two together to uncover the truth But their journey also brings emotions of another kind that threatens to tie them together for lifeThis novel was of an average read The plot and writing was good However there were some inconsistencies that detracted from my enjoymentview spoiler For example when Lisette and Max finally sleep together and Max offers marriage Lisette gets offended when Max correctly says that without his offer of marriage she might be bringing in illegitimate a word I am not fond of but that was commonplace in those days child in the world Lisette angrily says that if she finds herself in that position of course she would marry him But how was she to know that Max would offer her marriage when even before their sleeping together Max was refusing to marry her So what would she have done if she was left with a child with no marriage prospects I guess people could say that she knew in her heart that Max with do the right thing but such certainties especially with her history of a father who kept giving her mother hope of marriage but never followed through would make such a notion unfathomable So I didn’t understand her need to get all righteous when she has no real means of making things right I mean she can barely force a duke to marry her if he doesn’t want to I also disliked how Max subconsciously kept on testing her For example in the scene above Max thinks that he half expected her to accept the offer of marriage something which other women in her place would do I also hated what a hypocrite Max was There is a part at the end where he calls her mother a whore Yes he was angry but that doesn’t excuse him He can’t even properly apologise for it until way later But meanwhile when some other man calls her mother a whore he gets all righteous and uses his power as a duke over him Was I supposed to be impressed by this contradiction Because I most certainly was not And finally Lisette melted even before Max apologised He calls her dearling and she melts faster than ice cream on a hot day I am not a big fan of malleable women no matter how authors painted them otherwise If they are strong in one aspect of their life it should reasonably translate to their personality and character as well hide spoiler

What the Duke DesiresSband and wife in search of Tristan who has disappeared And the longer he spends with Lisette the easier it is for Max to see that the line between dukedom and desire is easier to cross than he imagin. This was my first Sabrina Jeffries book as well as my first time to hear narrator Corrie James and the experience was most enjoyable The heroine is feisty but not irrational and the hero is appropriately dukely Part of the story is a road trip to France traveling as a middle class married couple and it's fun The mystery was well done and kept me guessing The entire plot takes place over just a few days however and the duke's devotion to his lady happened way too uicklyCorrie James did an excellent job handling male and female voices as well as British and French accents For Lisette born and raised in England to a French mother she did just the right mix of accents I will definitely be on the lookout for books narrated by her especially the next book in this series
