A Duke for Diana

Recorded Books. (Designing Debutantes, Bk. 1). May 2022. 9:33 hrs. ISBN 9781705053041. $19.99. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
When scandal made Lady Diana Harper’s prospects seem grim, she decided to take destiny into her own hands and help other young ladies avoid the same fate. Four years later, she and her sisters run Elegant Occasions, a consulting business that guarantees their clients success on the marriage mart. When the newly minted Duke of Grenwood, Geoffrey Brookhouse, engages their services for his sister’s debut, Diana finds his lack of aristocratic aptitude to be boorish and exasperating, but it soon becomes apparent that he has secrets and scandals of his own. In this first installment of the “Designing Debutantes” series, Jeffries (“Duke Dynasty” series) crafts an engaging historical romance with an enchanting cast of characters that readers will delight to see return in subsequent volumes. The audio experience is largely unremarkable, though not unpleasant. Narrator Beverly Crick’s sultry voice is well-suited to the steamy love scenes, if not to the effervescent Harper girls and their bubbly banter.
VERDICT This audio will appeal to listeners seeking a witty Regency romance with an intrepid female lead who is as spirited as she is sensuous. Recommended for fans of Mary Balogh, Eloisa James, and Lenora Bell.
