Publisher's Summary

Ambrosia Tisdale is the very picture of propriety and the epitome of what a respectable young lady should be. Haunted by a memory and compelled by her family, she pursues perfection to a fault.
The Earl of Bristol, Duncan Maddox, has returned to London after years of familial-imposed exile. As the second son, he has led a life filled with frivolity, leisure, and a healthy dose of debauchery. Now, his older brother has died, leaving the family's flailing legacy in Duncan's unwilling arms.
At the behest of his uncle, Duncan is advised to do the one thing that could provide instant fortune and respectability - he must marry. But there is only one prospect who meets the unique requirements to solve all the earl's problems - the lovely Miss Ambrosia Tisdale. But securing the prudent daughter of a viscount's hand proves to be more challenging than this scandal-ridden second son of an earl has bargained for.
With scandal, extortion, treachery, and even love itself threatening to keep him from his goal, will Duncan succeed or find himself compromised by Miss Tisdale?
Contains mature themes.

I don’t really know why but it took a few tries to get into this narration... but then the story blossomed! Most excellent narration... not much steam. Creditworthy it is!
Now on to book two!

Pretty good story and great narration.

I enjoyed most of this story. There was a bit of repetitiveness going on which became a bit annoying, but it wasn't as bad as some books.

I liked Ambrosia for the most part. She was very proper for sure. I really really liked Duncan Maddox the Duke of Bristol. He was a great lead male character.

The story line and plot was good even with the repetitiveness. There was a bit of a twist that I didn't see coming which made it better.

As for the narration. I really enjoy Beverly Crick. She does great narrations these days. The men sound like men. She reads with emotion and has a nice reading voice.

The grammar...

Bizarre use of words that takes you out of the story from its’ very beginning. As a result, important points may be skimmed over in preference for frippery-wreathed inanities. It becomes difficult to follow the narrative.

If poor grammar isn’t as jolting to you as to me, you may still enjoy this. Unfortunately it is absolutely not for me.
