Publisher's Summary

A lady with a secret...
Partially deaf, with a birthmark marring her face, Bridget Hamilton is content with her life, even if she's been cast out of her family. But her peaceful existence - expanding her mind with her study of rare books - is threatened with an ultimatum from her evil brother - steal a valuable book or give up her son. Bridget has no choice; her son is her world.
A lord with a purpose...
Vail Basingstoke, Baron Chilton is known throughout London as the Bastard Baron. After battling at Waterloo, he establishes himself as the foremost dealer in rare books and builds a fortune, determined to never be like the self-serving duke who sired him. He devotes his life to growing his fortune to care for his illegitimate siblings, also fathered by the duke. The chance to sell a highly coveted book for a financial windfall is his only thought.
Two paths collide...
When Bridget masquerades as the baron's newest housekeeper, he's hopelessly intrigued by her quick wit and her skill with antique tomes. Wary from having his heart broken in the past, it should be easy enough to keep Bridget at arm's length, yet desire for her dogs his steps. As they spend time in each other's company, understanding for life grows as does love, but when Bridget's integrity is called into question, Vail's world is shattered - as is his heart again. Now Bridget and Vail will have to overcome the horrendous secrets and lies between them to grasp a love - and life - together.

Needed a Tim fix!

If you could sum up Beguiled by a Baron in three words, what would they be?

Formulaic Christi Caldwell


What was one of the most memorable moments of Beguiled by a Baron?

The heroine did not falter in adversity and took her lumps when she was discovered. Chose her child over all.


Have you listened to any of Tim Campbellā€™s other performances before? How does this one compare?

All of them by Christi Caldwell. Frankly, I started another series where Tim read the last four books in the succession but, not Book 1. I needed a break as I graved Tim's performances and his ability to do any character and give us the deep voice hero. Going back to muddle through...


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Maybe on the BBC, Rapunzel.
