Publisher's Summary

Leorah Langdon has no patience for Regency society's shallow hypocrisy and unnecessary rules, especially for women. She's determined to defy convention by marrying for grand passion instead of settling for a loveless union like her parents - or wedding a stuffy, pompous gentleman like Edward, the Viscount Withinghall. But when a chance meeting in the countryside leads to Leorah and Withinghall being discovered in his overturned carriage - alone and after dark - the ensuing gossip may force them together.
Withinghall has his reasons for clinging to propriety; his father perished in a duel with his mistress's husband, and Edward must avoid scandal himself if he wants to become prime minister. He certainly has no time for a reckless hoyden like Miss Langdon. But soon the two discover that Withinghall's coach "accident" was no such thing: the vehicle was sabotaged.
Can the culprit be brought to justice? Strong-willed Leorah and duty-driven Withinghall will have to work together if they have any hope of saving her reputation, his political career - and his life.

Horrible Edward voice

Why did the narrator make Edward sound like an 80 year old man! So hard to buy into the love story every time I heard his voice. Otherwise, loved the rest.

Love the story but the narrator is lacking

Any additional comments?

I've read all of Melanie Dickerson's books in both written and audible form and have enjoyed them all. This is the first that I have found where the male lead, Edward, was voiced so annoyingly that it distracted from the story. I did enjoy the story but it would have been so much better and nicer to not have to keep thinking about how much better it would be to have a different narrator - someone like Davina Porter.
