This is an older book, but a good one. The charming and devastatingly handsome Marquis, Rupert St. John, is a spymaster for Queen Victoria. He leads a double life and trusts no-one.
Lady Rebecca Marshall is the newest maid of honor in the Queen's court and is sent to Rupert's superior's room by the noblewoman in charge of the maids of honor to look for letters or anything incriminating. Believing she is ultimately doing it for the Queen, Rebecca does her bidding, and gets caught by Rupert St. Johns. St. John is aware the noblewoman is using the maids to spy on powerful courtiers for nefarious reasons of her own, and believes Rebecca is a willing participant.
After Rebecca learns more about the noblewoman she questions the Lady's actions, and tells her she will not do it again. But having caught her once, Rupert does not believe anything Rebecca says, and when she goes to his room to warn him, he seduces her. Although Rebecca was an innocent Rupert remains hard-hearted and attributes wrong motives for her being there.
Johanna Lindsey is a very talented author, and Rosalyn Landor a great performer. The length of the book is just right for an evenings entertainment.

I truly enjoyed this audible, even though it was abridged, i felt the story included enough to keep it flowing, interesting and fun. Light and enjoyable. Narrator was great too.
