Publisher's Summary

As marriage proposals go, Charles Draysmith's suit is as romantic as the moors in December. Emma Peterson might be only a vicar's daughter, and he the new Marquis of Knightsdale, and perhaps he would rather marry her than endure the marriage mart. But when he suggests how much he'll enjoy securing an heir, well, a lady can only endure so much. But the Lady is passionate. There's something about a woman throwing pottery at a man that piques his interest. Perhaps his proposal lacks grace, Charles thinks. But it does seem a perfect solution. He acquires a wife; his young charges have the mother they so desperately need, and Emma gains security and position. You see? Simple. Practical. Sensib - oh no, not the ceramic dog…He will have to confess the truth to calm her down. And the truth is, he's madly in love…

Just Silly

Any additional comments?

It's a romance and I do not expect more than a good bit of entertainment. However, given the good ratings I did expect more. The humor was not witty but silly. The love scenes were not sensual but rather blunt. The dialog was not natural or believable. Some dialog was even crude. Unfortunately the narrator did not make it any better. The narrator was not bad, but not very good either. Didn't give the characters personality.
I listened to two books from this series and both came up short. Will not listen/read anything by this Author again.

A similar version of book one

The story is quite similar to book one. Both heroines are naive, ridiculously so. In some of the scenes, this heroine's lines could have been read in the 4 year old's voice. That's how naive she sounded. The heros in both stories ask for the ladies hands in marriage in the first scene and the villains are both obvious in identity right from the start. No guessing games there. The heroines both resist the marriage vows until about 2 hours prior to the end after which point the villains strike and then all things right themselves and the world is good again. This was a complete waist of my time. I could not wait to finish it while at the same time I was hoping the story would suddenly change and become more enticing to listen to. No such luck.
