Audiobook 9 hours (approx.)

Narrator – Beverley A. Crick

Series – Duke Dynasty #1

Expectations – Hoping for the standard historical romance.  Bonus that the book and audiobook was available from the library at the same time also that it is book 1 of the series. 

Start is a little slow trying to figure out the complicated family tree.  With all the half brothers, sisters and cousins it seems a little incestuous.  I did like the lead male and female’s personalities. I felt like it was strong enough to want to read another in the series. 

There is a mystery that spans through the series instead of being solved.  The mystery is not really something I feel the need to finish the series to figure out.  It just seems like a method to throw the characters together and an attempt to explain the funky family tree. 

I mean really three half-brother Dukes with the same mother is excessive.
