Publisher's Summary

Antonia was not going to dwindle into an old maid... Miss Antonia Mannering had made plans, and Lord Philip Ruthven played a large part in them. They had been childhood friends, but had not seen each other for years. She knew Philip was popular with the ladies, but he had never married any of them. Wouldn't he now be ready for a wife? If she could prove to him that she could run his home, not disgrace him in Society and be a comfortable wife for him, surely he would be prompted to propose to her. That they might fall in love had never occurred to her!

Not author's best, but reader makes it enjoyable

While IMO this isn't one of Stephanie Laurens best books, it's made enjoyable by good narration. I was disappointed by the rather unimaginative plot and predictable storyline, but the reader brought the place, time and all the characters vividly to life which saved it for me. I found her voice and delivery pleasant and easy to listen to, and just right for this gentle romance. It's not one of the Cynster novels, so by comparison it's quite tame.

i've never been disappointed about a story that was written by one of my favorite author. but i guess there's always the first.
