Publisher's Summary

From the moment Daphne, Lady Pomeroy, meets the mysterious Marquess of Hartwell at a masquerade ball, she's determined to seduce him. The handsome, charming man cannot possibly be the cold, calculating lord who Society calls "Black Hart". Risking everything, the lonely widow invites the elusive Hartwell to her dinner party…for two.
Hartwell's arrogant reputation is built on a lie. For he has a shameful secret that keeps him in the shadows: a stutter - his downfall since childhood. He'd rather keep his mouth shut than look the fool. But he's shocked to discover that in Daphne's company - and in her bed - his stutter vanishes.
After one wanton evening together, Daphne is hurt when the lord lives up to his Black Hart name. Yet his reasons for leaving surprise even him. Now he must confess everything or risk losing Daphne forever.

Quick Regency Romance

This book is perfect if you enjoy short romantic stories with happy endings. Because the book isn't very long there isn't much time for details but the story is interesting enough to hold attention. There are a couple steamy scenes but I'm not sure it should be in the erotic category as the love scenes were at about the same level as the regular romance category.

The narrator's voice was clear and very pleasant. Overall, I would recommend this book on a day you don't have the time to devote to a longer book. And, the price is reasonable so you don't have to use a credit.

Way to short

hated how short the book was... ended in a way I didn't care for! I should've known better than listening to a book less than 3 hours in length!
