Publisher's Summary

Their lives were perfect....
Lady Hero Batten, the beautiful sister of the Duke of Wakefield, has everything a woman could want, including the perfect fiancé. True, the Marquis of Mandeville is a trifle dull and has no sense of humor, but that doesn't bother Hero... until she meets his notorious brother.
Until they met each other....
Griffin Remmington, Lord Reading, is far from perfect - and he likes it that way. How he spends his days is a mystery, but all of London knows he engages in the worst sorts of drunken revelry at night. Hero takes an instant dislike to him, and Griffin thinks that Hero, with her charities and faultless manners, is much too impeccable for society, let alone his brother. Yet their near-constant battle of wits soon sparks desire - desire that causes their carefully constructed worlds to come tumbling down. As Hero's wedding nears, and Griffin's enemies lay plans to end their dreams forever, can two imperfect people find perfect true love?

Another credit worthy listen!

I have no idea what took me so long to get this book? I loved it! It was every bit as good as the first in the series. Elizabeth Hoyt/Ashford MacNab delivered yet another great historical romance with just the right amount of mystery, sex and a HEA ending.
If you liked the first book or enjoy this genre then I highly recommend this book. Just don't wait as long as I did to read it.

This was another credit worthy listen for me.

What about Ashford MacNab’s performance did you like?

I thought she was great. She adds greatly to the pleasure of listening to the book.

Any additional comments?

I know it was a book of fiction, but I was wondering what Hero was thinking to be casually hopping in and out of bed with her fiance' s brother. The consequences could be great.
As wirh "Wicked Intentions", it was very sexy. I liked that it touched on some of the secondary characters that were in "Wicked Intentions" and will be the main charaters in the next book of this series. It was a lovely love story.
