Publisher's Summary

When Lord Greene wagers his daughter's hand in marriage in a card game, no one is less surprised the woman herself. The only thing that shocks Olive is that the man that he has gambled her away to is none other than the Duke of Ruin.
Rumors abound that the Sixth Duke of Everleigh callously murdered his late wife and killed her lover in a duel - and now Olive is to become his bride.
Ruan Ashford took one look at Olive Greene and knew that he had to have her in his bed. The beautiful, auburn-haired temptress will make a perfect Duchess; there's only one problem - his new wife despises him.
When a chance arises for Olive to disappear, she readily grabs hold of it, and soon, the Duke of Ruin is hunting the Cornish countryside for his runaway bride. When he finds her, can he convince her that he's not the dreadful villain the world thinks him to be and that his love for her is real?

I had to finish it before I went to bed!

Would you listen to The Duke of Ruin again? Why?

Really enjoyed this! This isn't my usual genre; I listened to the audio-book based on a friend's recommendation. My plan was to listen while walking...but as the story progressed, I couldn't wait until my next walk... so... I had to finish it before I went to bed!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ruin. His character was well developed.

What does Duke and Duchess DeFoix bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Character personalities! They brought the story alive!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Many!

Any additional comments?

I thoroughly enjoyed the plot. I would have liked less passion and more friendship between Olive and Ruin.

Very enjoyable

I have enjoyed regency romances for a long time and thought this story was very well done. I loved the performance by Duke DeFoix immensely in this book and would love to listen to more of his works. Duchess DeFoix came across as too hoity and took away from the performance.
I liked how the author wrote a story that had some believable actions and events in the story. I loved how the Duke used the power of his title to have other's memory not be tarnished. His title should have been Duke of Redemption and not Ruin. Olive was a great character in this book too. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I would listen to more books by this author and narrators.
