Publisher's Summary

Jack Lester has to find a bride.... But where can he find the perfect woman? She has to be attractive, kind, a good conversationalist...and most important, she has to accept him as he is: devilishly handsome, charming, and, as far as anyone knows, poor as a church mouse! If London society discovers his hidden wealth, he'll never find the right wife.
Jack's heart races when he first lays eyes on Sophie Winterton. She is everything he desires - and more - but he is caught in his own trap. Believing that Jack needs to marry into wealth, Sophie rejects all his advances, certain he would never marry a poor girl like her.
As they play out a game of cat and mouse, can Jack convince her that she is the woman he wants - and that he is the husband she deserves?

Good story, but distracting narration!

As long as the plot & story is decent, I usually don't have a problem with the narrator, and I especially like Stephanie Laurens' romances. However, this audio was quite different! Jasicki has a nice voice for a woman, but her male voices are very irritating! I hung in there for the whole first half because the story was intriguing and I really wanted to follow the relationship between the main characters. However, Jack's voice was so unmanly that I was distracted from the romance and had to abandon it!!! That's very frustrating, since that's the whole reason why I bought the audio version! It would be much better with another narrator.

One of my favorites.

This is one of Stephanie Laurens books that is clearly driven by something other than sex scenes.
Well done, enchanting even. With a sub-plot as enjoyable as the main. Characters you can visualize and get to know... it's a Happy Ever After Romance to fall in love with.
I've listened to all of the Cynster books and numerous other's as well.... As one of the more tame stories I found it to still be nearly perfect.

NARRATOR : Elizabeth Jasicki is becoming one of my favorites. Her performance, with the exception of a couple mispronounciations, was flawless. From cadence and tempo to the individuality of each character she delivered masterfully.

CREDITWORTHY? : YES!

HEAT FACTOR: Very low, non-existent even. But that in no way detracts from this book!
