Publisher's Summary

Brooke Culpepper resigned herself to spinsterhood when she turned down the only marriage proposal she'd likely ever receive to care for her family. After her father dies, a distant cousin inherits the estate and becomes their guardian but permits Brooke to act in his stead.
Heath, Earl of Ravensdale, is none-too-pleased to discover five young women call the dairy farm he won and intends to sell, their home. Desperate, pauper poor, and with nowhere to go, Brooke proposes a wager. His stakes? The farm. Hers? Her virtue. The land holds no interest for Heath, but Brooke does and he accepts her challenge.
Brooke loses, and her devastation is compounded when the cousin arrives, intending to haul the Culpepper misses off to London. Heath astounds himself and proposes in order to apply for guardianship of the other girls. Does Brooke dare marry the handsome stranger who'd been bent on compromising her? Will Heath regret his impulsive gesture, or will unexpected love flourish?

Great story..Awesome narration..

Love, love, loved Heath and Brook. What a great story. There wasn’t any murder or mystery or anything like that. It was just a love story, which I’ve begun NOT to like very much. It had a little less than 300 pages but it was so interesting it felt like it was over way too soon. And I have to admit there really isn’t enough dialogue for me but I can suffer when the story is good.

Brook was one selfless and brave woman, and didn’t take any crap from anyone. Heath was such an arrogant goof I couldn’t wait for him to be brought down. LOL

I liked the other players a lot; Blythe, Brette, Blaire and Blaike, Leventhrope, Hawksworth, and poor old Duffen. I liked the dog, Freddy, too. I did not like Sheridan, what an absolute jerk he was.

There was sexual attraction in this story and a nice bedroom scene very near the end of the book. And, there was very little swearing.

As to the narration: Again Stevie Zimmerman was awesome. Every man sounded like a man and she read with such emotion: laughing, whispering, crying, yelling, you name it and she did it. Wonderful narration!

Love this story!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would (and have) definitely recommend to a friend.


Who was your favorite character and why?

So hard to choose, but I'm going to say Heath. I felt a bit sorry for him when he was thrown into the dovecote. He's endearing, and I love that he wants to take care of not only Brooke, but all the ladies.


Have you listened to any of Stevie Zimmerman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, definitely! I love the historical touches Ms. Cameron adds to her novels - the language and funny sayings, the way of dress and accessories, and historical facts. I always learn something new about the period when I read her books.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Nothing. She was fabulous! She does such a great job of capturing each character's personality and giving each of them a distinctive voice.


Any additional comments?

Love the author and narrator - would listen to anything by this dynamic duo!
