If you are going to read this book for romance....Don't it has none.. they don't even meet in this book. I found it lacked everything a good book has. Possibly the most boring book I have ever read.

Castles, islands, treasure hunters and a troubled Duke. I looked forward to reading this book, which sounded like an adventure story for adults. I liked the premise and the locations explored in the book. The secondary characters were interesting and intriguing. The author did a good job portraying the Duke's sudden disability. I could understand what he was going through and her descriptions of how he could "see" music were amazing. He was a bit too autocratic for my taste, but then, he was a Duke! I found I just could not bond with the heroine for the most part. I think the author wanted her to come across as enchanting with a "deep soul." To me, she just seemed immature and a little silly. Her propensity to lie at the drop of a hat was off-putting. That the Duke would fall in love with her through her letters seemed implausible in that she sounded like a child, although she was twenty. I could, however, sympathize with her lonely childhood and desire to prove herself by finding her missing parents. Some of the language used (new normal, slow-motion) would definitely not have been used in 1818. That took me out of the story a bit. Still, I enjoyed parts of the book and will read the next installment in the series.
