The Duke and I audiobook – Bridgertons #1 by Julia Quinn
The Duke and I audiobook‘s plot: Rules abound in Regency London’s ballrooms and drawing rooms. Children of aristocracy are taught from an early age how to approach an earl and bow before a prince, while other tonal rules go unwritten but are commonly recognized. A true duke should be aloof and haughty. A young, marryable lady should be friendly… but not too friendly.
Daphne Bridgerton has never been good at the latter. She has developed friendships with the most desirable young men in London as the fourth of eight siblings in her close-knit family. Everyone admires Daphne for her warmth and humor. But no one actually wants her. She’s simply too honest for that, too reluctant to engage in the romantic diversions that enchant males.
Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings, is not known for his friendliness. He has recently returned to England from overseas and plans to avoid both marriage and society, much as his heartless father did during Simon’s terrible upbringing. However, a chance meeting with his best friend’s sister provides another possibility. Simon can discourage the moms who flaunt their girls before him if Daphne agrees to a phony romance. Meanwhile, Daphne’s possibilities and reputation will skyrocket. […]
With The Duke and I audiobook, you will find out that nothing was more appealing to moms of single daughters than a single duke. Unfortunately for Simon, he is one of them. He is also single. And, given that he has no intention of marrying, their mothers are a pain in his backside. So he makes a proposal to Daphne, his best friend’s younger sister, who is equally tired of rejecting pretendents she doesn’t want. Everyone will leave them alone if they pretend to be interested in each other. They don’t anticipate such sensations becoming genuine.
You will fall in love with the characters, the place, and the tone of The Duke and I audiobook, from Lady Whistledown to the complete, boisterous Bridgerton family and their amusing yet powerful matriarch, to the banter and humorous situations between Simon and Daphne. When Daphne discovers more about how things operate and understands she has been duped, she has an understandably huge conflict and informs Simon that she will no longer sleep in his bed. He becomes inebriated and returns home, pleading for her to remain with him and be with him.
The loyal, fiery Daphne and the gruff, tortured Simon, who were such a wonderful, lovely, adorable combination will be things that make you adore The Duke and I audiobook more. They had to overcome some bizarre and significant challenges in order to be together, but their joyful ending may leave readers with a big fat glad smile on their faces. It is nevertheless a wonderfully engaging and lovely narrative.
