Publisher's Summary

Laird Keir McQuade is a newcomer to his title, and has much work before him to restore the McQuade honor. Finding a wife is an excellent start. He's duty-bound to go to court and swear homage to his king anyway, a perfect opportunity - were not court women trussed in stupid fashions and corrupted with false mannerisms. Of course, not every lady hides behind a powdered face...
Helena Knyvett may be a daughter of the aristocracy, but in truth she is little but a pawn in her brother's ploys for power. Her smallest acts of defiance carry a heavy price. But one honorable man among a crowd of dandies could give her all she needs to change her fortunes - and set her free...
Among the ruthless ambitions of England's powerful, love at first sight is a dangerous game. But the treachery, scandal, and treason that follow can unleash as much passion as it does adventure...

Narration a complete fail. Story was a win

I advise against the audible narration - I believe Bruce Mann is actually a robot. How could anyone have allowed this series to go out with this narration?? Mary Wise deserves better and so do we. Where do you go for a refund?

awful narrator

the story is wonderful with court intrigue and and a sweet love story. the narrator has the worst voice I've ever listened to. You should really have another read it!
