Summary

Summary

They call him the Duke of Ruin.

To an undaunted wallflower, he's just the beast next door.

Wealthy and ruthless, Gabriel Duke clawed his way from the lowliest slums to the pinnacle of high society—and now he wants to get even.

Loyal and passionate, Lady Penelope Campion never met a lost or wounded creature she wouldn’t take into her home and her heart.

When her imposing—and attractive—new neighbor demands she clear out the rescued animals, Penny sets him a challenge. She will part with her precious charges, if he can find them loving homes.

Done, Gabriel says. How hard can it be to find homes for a few kittens?

And a two-legged dog.

And a foul-mouthed parrot.

And a goat, an otter, a hedgehog . . .

Easier said than done, for a cold-blooded bastard who wouldn’t know a loving home from a workhouse. Soon he’s covered in cat hair, knee-deep in adorable, and bewitched by a shyly pretty spinster who defies his every attempt to resist. Now she’s set her mind and heart on saving him.

Not if he ruins her first.

Editorial Reviews

“Mary Jane Wells thoroughly delights listeners as she narrates the third book in the Girl Meets Duke series…Wells is so captivating that listeners will feel like they are attending a performance. Her crisp aristocratic diction and superb comedic timing enhance a wonderful story.” AudioFile
“Scintillating…This riveting romance may be Dare’s best yet.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Dare’s inimitable wit, charm, humor, and emotional intensity are on full display, and readers will be smitten.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“[An] ingeniously inventive and wonderfully whimsical story…[and] a plot with a serious side while still delivering just the right ratio of lushly detailed love scenes to laugh-out-loud moments.” Booklist (starred review)
“A deliciously sexy take on Lady and the Tramp. Laugh-out-loud scenes involving a runaway otter, a foul-mouthed parrot, and a scene stealing hedgehog balance out the darker, more introspective topics of the characters’ childhood abuse and neglect.” Library Journal (starred review)
