Publisher's Summary

Sensible gentleman of means seeks a sensible lady of good breeding for correspondence, and in due consideration, matrimony.
Which is exactly the sort of advertisement that makes practical-to-a-fault Daphne Dale's heart flutter. A sensible gentleman, in her estimation, is the perfect match, and she's even more convinced once she's exchanging sensibly romantic letters with her very appropriate suitor. That is, until Lord Henry Seldon strays into her path. He's everything she's vowed to avoid - a rakish charmer whose very touch seduces her practical sensibilities and her resolve.
Lord Henry Seldon was not amused when his nephew placed an advertisement to find him a wife. Yet he couldn't resist replying to the note from "Miss Spooner". And once he discovers he's corresponding with none other than the disarming Daphne Dale, he finds it's too late to disavow his heart. Now it is up to Henry to prove to Daphne just how insensible - and powerfully passionate - true love can be...

Really fun story.

This is a really fun story. I really liked the Hero, Lord Henry and Heroine, Miss Daphne Dale. They made a great "match" wonderful chemistry between the two, A couple nicely written sex scenes. Daphne was a smart, witty, strong heroine, not a simpering whiny chit. Lord Henry a strong, handsome, smart, witty, wealthy second son\uncle to the Duke of Preston from the first book.

I enjoyed the story line and the plot, there was a lot of dialogue, throughout the book which was great. I really enjoyed a many of the secondary characters as well. Some funny moments in this book.

I have already started the third book in this series and am already enjoying it.

As for the narration. Its okay, its Susan Duerden who narrates with that sing song drawn out consonants at the end of her sentences. Really wish she would stop doing that. But she is tolerable, much better than some, ie Anne Flosnik who will ruin a book and I cannot listen to anything she narrates.

What a waste of a very funny book. I couldn't hang. The narrator was absolutely awful and she RUINED this hilarious book.

This book has no plot, and the main protagonists are completely witless. Just when you think something may happen, the already plodding storyline grinds to almost a complete stop.
