Olivia Kingsley didn't expect to fall in love and receive a secret marriage proposal two weeks into her first season. However, one dance with Allen Wimpleton, heir to a viscountcy, and her fate is sealed. Or so she thinks until her eccentric and ailing father, unaware of Allen's proposal, announces he's moving the family to the Caribbean for a year. In two days.
Allen begs Olivia to elope to Scotland, knowing her father will refuse his offer of marriage after such a brief acquaintance with Olivia. Having recently lost her mother, and fearing for her father's health, she refuses, pleading with Allen to wait for her until she returns to England. Angry at her hesitancy, and unaware of her father's ill health, Allen demands she choose - him or her father.
Heartbroken at his callousness, but thankful he's revealed his true nature before she married him, Olivia turns her back on their love. The year becomes three, enough time for her broken heart to heal, and after her father dies, Olivia returns to England. Coming face to face with Allen, she realizes she never purged him from her heart and once again the flames of love ignite, but is it too late? Does Olivia have any hope of winning Allen's heart once more, or has he found another?

Great book and awesome narration..

A sweet romance
Not necessarily, it depends on what you want at the time. Obviously it's quicker to read the book but listening to the audio version allows you to do other things or if you are unwell, just to relax and listen to someone else reading it for you. I found both versions very enjoyable.
Olivia Kingsley, she remains strong even after her disappointment but hasn't become bitter. She has a very caring nature.
No, this is the first time I've heard this narrator. I enjoyed her narration, I was pleased that she had an English accent as it was set in England with English people speaking.
A sweet romance
This is a novella so it lasted just over 2 hours, ideal for when your time is limited. I know longer audiobooks can take up to 2 weeks to find the time to listen to them.
I received a free copy . This is my honest review,
