Intrepid and outspoken, Blythe Culpepper is dragged against her will to London. To her dismay, her guardian enlists the devilishly attractive Lord Leventhorpe, the one man she detests, to assist with her coming out. Since their first encounter, hostile looks and cutting retorts have abounded whenever they meet, yet she cannot deny the way her body reacts when he's near. So perhaps it's no surprise that upon overhearing another woman scheming to entrap Tristan into marriage, Blythe risks all to warn him.
Haunted by childhood trauma, Tristan, the austere and controlled Marquis of Leventhorpe, usually avoids social gatherings. So why, against his better judgement, does he agree to aid his closet friend in presenting the Culpeppers? Might it be because one Culpepper stirs more than his interest? Blythe taxes him to his limits with her sharp wit and even sharper tongue. Yet, he cannot deny that her beauty fascinates him. However, when an old enemy comes calling, using Blythe to settle old scores, Tristan must decide if protecting his honor is more important than winning the heart of the woman he has come to love.

Quirky and Witty!
The story was charming!
Blythe, she's witty! It was a treat to see a country girl out of her element in the regency time period.
I haven't. I liked her performance for the most part, however there were a few character voices that annoyed me a little (ex: how the narrator just drops her voice down an octave or so to create the illusion of a male voice... I thought it was a little sloppy.)
There was a lot of laughing! I also had an extreme amount of empathy for Lord Leventhorpe's past situation, it was heartbreaking.
