The Duke and I by Julia Quinn (Audio Edition) with 2nd Epilogue

Narrated by Rosalyn Landor
Series: The Bridgertons #1

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ For my rereading of this book I chose the audio version. I found I enjoyed it just as much as when I read it the first time in print! Simon and Daphne are great together. I love that Simon finds peace within himself. I enjoyed watching the characters grow and of course all the Bridgerton siblings crack me up. This is a wonderful story about family.  

Rosalyn Landor does a superb job on narration as usual!

On a side note.. the edition I listened to had the 2nd epilogue added on at the end. If you are someone who likes to read in order and not find out the the tiny details.. like who ends up with whom - perhaps save the 2nd epilogue till after all the other main books of the series. Then it's like a little treat to see everyone's life afterwards.

The Blurb:

Can there be any greater challenge to London’s Ambitious Mamas than an unmarried duke?

—Lady Whistledown’s Society Papers, April 1813

By all accounts, Simon Basset is on the verge of proposing to his best friend’s sister, the lovely—and almost-on-the-shelf—Daphne Bridgerton. But the two of them know the truth—it’s all an elaborate plan to keep Simon free from marriage-minded society mothers. And as for Daphne, surely she will attract some worthy suitors now that it seems a duke has declared her desirable.

But as Daphne waltzes across ballroom after ballroom with Simon, it’s hard to remember that their courtship is a complete sham. Maybe it’s his devilish smile, certainly it’s the way his eyes seem to burn every time he looks at her… but somehow Daphne is falling for the dashing duke… for real! And now she must do the impossible and convince the handsome rogue that their clever little scheme deserves a slight alteration, and that nothing makes quite as much sense as falling in love…
