Publisher's Summary

A Regency Historical Novel - Book Four of the Scandalous Series
After years of abuse at the hands of her mother, Cordelia Avery knows the only way out is marriage to the perfect man. A man who will allow her all the freedom she has ever craved. And she has the perfect man picked out. The scandalous Marquess of Haversham might not be perfect to anyone else, but taking the man's black reputation under consideration, Cordie believes she'll enjoy all the freedom she's always wished for in his disreputable arms.
If only she could get her heart to go along with the plan and to stop leaping whenever Lord Adonis///the Earl of Clayworth is nearby. But the very proper earl is most assuredly the wrong sort for her purposes. Brendan Reese, the Earl of Clayworth, has no intention of ever marrying again. He's still trying to clean up the mess his first wife left him, even years after her death. To all the world, Clayworth is the epitome of the perfect English gentleman, and he so wishes that image was the truth. But the truth, as it often can be, is ugly.
After all, a perfect English gentleman would never have a traitor for a mother. And unless Clayworth can find the evidence his late wife hid, he could face the gallows himself. But a chance encounter with the reckless Cordelia Avery gives him the best lead he's had in years to finally putting his family's past to rest. Unfortunately, focusing on anything other than Miss Avery seems a nearly impossible task.

Surprisingly delightful!

Any additional comments?

This is the first book I've heard from this author or series but this was such a great experience I'm definitely gonna have to go back now and find them all.

Lovely Story

The narrator kept me enchanted throughout the story. Stevie's performance is superb. I'd like to venture on another of her work.

Easy to listen to

read two before I decided to listen to the sample narrative. The stories , this being the fourth I listened to are well read with the male characters coming across well not to distract from the flow of the story. so far all four books five out of five.
