    I enjoyed this immensely though I have mild issues as well Part of my enjoyment is how well Linden managed the character motivations and how they drove the conflicts that produced such great tension throughout the story Francesca is comfortable She isn't rich rich but she has everything she needs for a comfortable even active life in her social set without needing to worry much about money or shelter or food So she'd be all set i

One Night in London

A bargain that was all businessand pure passion Neither wealth nor beauty will help Lady Francesca Gordon win custody of her young niece Georgina saving the girl from a cruel stepmother; she needs London's top solicitor for that But when Edward de Lacey son of the powerful Duke of. I ve given this a B for narration and B for content at AAR so I m leaving it at 4 starsIn One Night in London book one of Caroline Linden s 20112012 The Truth About the Duke trilogy the deathbed vigil of the two younger sons of the Duke of Durham is followed the next day by a meeting with the family solicitor The solicitor reveals that the late duke contracted a secret marriage some years before he married their mother As this may mean the later marriage was bigamous and they are all illegitimate the brothers stand to lose everythingThe story focuses on the middle brother Lord Edward de Lacey who has run the Durham estates with great skill and great success He doesn t care much for society and has a reputation for being a ruthless businessman and a bit of a dull dog He hires London s premier solicitor to prepare their case and hopes it will be just a matter of time before his eldest brother Charles is proved to be the rightful Duke of Durham While the Durham Dilemma is the thread which connects all three books in the series this one is principally concerned with Edward s romance Anyone who is expecting the resolution of the matter of the inheritance is going to be disappointed because that doesn t happen until book threeLady Francesca Gordon is furious when she discovers that the same solicitor has turned down her case in favour of working for the de Laceys She confronts Edward accusing him of poaching him her annoyance greatly fuelled by the fact that he is the only lawyer she met who gave her case even the most basic consideration When one of London s scandal sheets prints a story about the Durham Dilemma the next day Francesca sees an opportunity to advance her cause She knows the editor of the scandal sheet and will contrive to have him print a retraction in return for Edward s help in securing the services of another solicitor This bargain naturally throws them into each other s company and as they spend time together they each begin to revise their original assessments of the otherThe protagonists are both very strongly drawn and although at first they seem to be complete opposites he rather starchy and she a tempestuous free spirit as the story progresses both they and the reader come to see that what originally seem to be almost unbridgeable gulfs in personality are actually ualities which are complementary Francesca livens Edward up reminding him what it feels like to be happy rather than merely content Edward helps her to see the value of learning to hold back and plan rather than to rush headlong into a situationThe sexual tension simmers between them from the get go Francesca thinks Edward is dull and colourless at first and he thinks she s a managing harpy yet they find it increasingly difficult to stop thinking about each other Edward fights his attraction to Francesca particularly strongly feeling that she is everything he doesn t like in a woman she s forward opinionated and capable and Francesca can t believe she is having lustful thoughts about such a stiff necked fellow as Edward de Lacey And when the lustful thoughts finally turn into reality the pair of them may just have melted my earbuds Their passionate affair has the feel of a mature relationship but is simultaneously one in which the characters experience that first explosion of infatuation and physical desireGildart Jackson a new to me narrator who is also it seems a newcomer to the world of audiobook romance has a voice like melted chocolate rich and dark His narration is nuanced and expressive Although there are times when it is a little on the slow side that fits with Edward s character as he s a reserved man who always thinks before he acts Mr Jackson differentiates clearly between all the male characters doing an especially good job in providing each of the three brothers with his own distinctive sound His performance of Edward is excellent He really captures the essence of him part restrained buttoned up gentleman and part sex god by skilful use of subtle changes in tone and inflection Edward intent on seduction is utterly and deliciously wicked while Edward the businessman is considered and rather restrained in both speech and mannerHis portrayal of female characters is less successful Francesca is a widow in her late twenties so it s right that she doesn t sound like a wide eyed ing nue but at times she sounds like a middle aged dowager than a vital young woman That said Mr Jackson s portrayal changes as the book progresses so overall he does a than decent job I don t however much care for the falsetto he uses to characterise Louisa Halston Edward s ex fianc e as it falls over the edge into caricatureOne Night in London is an enjoyable listen and a good start to this series I certainly intend to listen to Mr Jackson again on the strength of it and I m pleased that he s joined the very small club of men who narrate historical romance I hope he maintains his membership because the genre needs good male narrators

Durham hires away the one man who can do the job Francesca decides Edward himself must champion her caseif only she can melt the dashing lord's stony heart Edward has reason to be guarded though London's tabloids have just exposed a secret that could ruin his entire family When Fra. I just INHALED this Why I m blazes did I wait so long to start this series What was I thinkingEdward and Francesca were two opposite but somehow complementary personalities who positively combusted when they were togetherEdward starts of stiff and formal and steeped in duty but as he sheds that armorgood stuff Francesca was a little harder to like In some ways I loved her vivacity but I thought sometimes her temper and uick assumptions of people was annoying However I think her strength was what drew Edward in and really helped him grow too and I liked that in herBoth have journeys of discovery here and the ongoing Durham Dilemma continues after this book ends I ll be diving in to the next book shortly
