Publisher's Summary

After five Seasons, Ivonne Wimpleton has accepted she's a haute ton undesirable. Always a bit ungraceful, her suitors are men desperate to get their hands on her marriage settlement. Guarded and aloof, she's resigned herself to spinsterhood. She doesn't mind her fate, since Chancy Faulkenhurst, the man who once held her heart, left for India years ago without an explanation. When Ivonne's father, Viscount Wimpleton, refuses Chance's request for her hand in marriage, he transfers to the East India Troops. Chance's dreams of making Ivonne his wife are soundly dashed. Ignoring her letters, he closes the door on his heart and Ivonne and remains in India.
Six years later, severely injured during a battle, Chance returns to England physically and emotionally scarred. His love for Ivonne remains just as strong. When he learns that she must choose one of the despots who have offered for her hand, Chance is determined that none should have her but him. Except, not only is she infuriated he made no effort to contact her in all those years, in Chance's absence, his father arranged a marriage for him and fully expects Chance to honor the agreement.

Great book and awesome narration..

I have to say I enjoyed every single word of this novella. I loved all the secondary characters, well I did hate Lord Kirkpatrick, and the sweet sensual love story. Of Falcon’s concern of Ivonne being disgusted because of the two fingers he’d lost during the war (he’d been gone for six years) and Ivonne’s ‘sometimes’ concern that she walked with a limp because of a broken leg that didn’t heal right. Theirs was such a wonderful love, yet neither of them knew how the other felt until the end of the book. There was only 186 pages in this but it told me a perfect love story, with no angst or misunderstandings. I can't ask for more than that.

There wasn’t any sex in this book but there was some touchy-feely stuff going on, that was perfectly written. Great sexual tension on Ivonne’s part. And there was no swearing.

As to the narrator: Fantastic! I swear Stevie Zimmerman is becoming one of my favorite female narrators. She laughs, cries, whispers, mumbles, everything that’s called for. And I love her male voices.
