Warning

Whilst I enjoyed this book, and found the story very touching in places, there is the underlying theme of BDSM, at times taken a bit too far, but in keeping with the storyline. I found it quite romantic in the end, and now I know what a ginger fig is! lol I did find the narrator to be a bit slow, and although she managed a quite good upper class English accent, there were some glaring mispronouncing of certain words, so I only gave her three stars. All in all a good book, if read a bit too slow.

A wonderful tale

A wonderful and at tones funny tale. The characters were well drawn and believable. This wasn’t a tale that rushed through the developing plot only to get to the more steamy scenes. I would highly recommend this ebook.

Terrible

What would have made Disciplining the Duchess better?

Narrator was unbearable.

What was most disappointing about Annabel Joseph’s story?

Was a sorry of abuse that was couched as "romance".

How could the performance have been better?

Narrator was whiny. The fake British accent was obvious.

SADLY, YOU REALLY CAN'T TELL A BOOK BY IT'S COVER

I had such high hopes for this listen as I love a good Duke story but unfortunately both the narrator and the plot were just plain awful - not touching or tender but abusive and twisted.

Harmony, a naive, impulsive bluestocking was at a house party and she became bored so, being interested in history, decided to go to Hadrian's Wall - an overnight trip but she took no overnight bag, little money, no idea how she was going to get there and she was totally alone (UNBELIEVABLE). She was spotted by Courtland (the Duke) who told her that he would personally take her however, she gave him the slip (A STUPID MOVE) and hired an unscrupulous stranger (WHY?) with a wagon who just dumped her off at the side of the road in the middle of nowhere (AGAIN, STUPID). Courtland felt he needed to find her and went in search for her then, when he found her, he promised to take her there (despite knowing the laws of the ton when it comes to 'compromising' a woman) and decides to marry her as well.

Unfortunately I didn't like the Heroine who came across as a childish airhead who did stupid things throughout the story which was annoying and I didn't like the Hero because he came across as a cold, unfeeling, stuck-up bully for most of the story and punished her by severely taking a cane to her. There were times of sexual gratification during 'slapping' her but there were two instances of disciplining her by thrashing her with the cane whilst she was screaming and crying which I really didn't like. IMHO, the narrator had a horrible voice and it was difficult to distinguish between all the characters. Yes it contain sex scenes but a lot of these weren't very romantic at all.

Worth a credit? If this had been read by a more skilful narrator, it may have gained a point but alas it wasn't and nothing can take away a bad storyline. So, again IMHO, NO not worth a credit.
