Never a Duke

Hachette Audio. (Rogues to Riches, Bk. 7). Apr. 2022. 10:17 hrs. ISBN 9781549193200. $24.98. REGENCY ROMANCE
Ned Wentworth may have been raised in a ducal family, but he is anything but aristocratic. Fortunately, his street smarts and sordid connections are exactly what the quirky Lady Rosalind Kinwood needs to find her missing maids. Though neither feels at home in their respective social circles, they find that they relate to each other in ways they never imagined. When their investigation takes a perilous turn, however, they risk losing more than just their hearts. Fans of Burrowes’s “Rogues to Riches” series have waited years for Ned to have his day. Even those new to the series will delight in this friends-to-lovers tale with a witty and winsome cast of characters. Narrator James Langton’s regal voice enhances the lush details to transport listeners to the Regency era. Langton’s stately tone also easily takes on airs of suspense or sensuality as needed. This audio will appeal to listeners seeking a steamy romance with a dash of sinister suspense.
VERDICT With more action than the other series installments, this is an engaging romp for readers who like some adventure and intrigue with their romance; recommended for fans of Tessa Dare, Julia Quinn, and Cathy Maxwell.
