Publisher's Summary

Ashton Laytham came to Fayerweather, his uncle’s estate, as an orphan at the age of seven. Family and servants alike perceived Ashton as an unlovable child and shunned him; as an adult, the occasional illicit rendezvous aside, Ashton remains aloof and alone. When his uncle dies, yet more abuse falls upon Ashton’s shoulders: the estate is bankrupt and Ashton must make good on his uncle’s gaming debts.
With the family talisman stolen and the suspects fled, Ashton faces certain ruin until the arrival of Geo Stephenson, who holds all of Sir Laytham’s IOUs. Geo proposes a solution: Ashton will accommodate him in his bed, thereby paying off the debt. Attracted to Geo in spite of himself and desperate for any human kindness, Ashton agrees … never expecting to lose his heart to a man who claims he will never give his.

I like, but re listen, maybe not

I like this. This is set in early England. It is like a Jane Austen m/m twist. I would not re-listen though.

Credit, not a buy.. O.. Narration was pretty good. Actually if narration was not as good, I think story would suck. Narration can make or break an audio book. Morey is a great narrator. He reads the characters not just the book.

Interesting

I enjoyed the book. I like historical books, though because it was set in the country and set 90% in the estate it had a different feel to it.
I liked the main character, poor thing. I didn't understand why the aunt who was supposed to be a very kind woman didn't do anything.

Narrator is always great.
