Publisher's Summary

Teresa, Dowager Marchioness of Darent, is rumored to have exhausted her four deceased husbands with her insatiable needs. So it’s no surprise that every rake in the ton wants to bed her. If they only knew… through clever marriages to men who would ask nothing of her physical self, Tessa has remained rather innocent in the ways of the bedroom. But now she’s on the verge of losing everything and wants to take care of the stepson she’s grown to adore.
Enter Captain Owen Purchase. The handsome American adventurer has come into the title of Viscount Rothbury. And the rumors surrounding his injuries at sea suggest that he could fit Tessa’s requirements. But little does Tessa realize that the gossipmongers are wrong. She just might lose her heart, and her desires, to the most unlikely of men….

On par with Lisa Kleypas

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

Lisa Kleypas is one of my favorite historical romance authors, but having read all of her books, I have been looking for someone with similar stories/style for years--well here she is! And--manna from heaven--she has a trove of books already written, although only two available on Audible. Would love to see more by Nicola Cornick on Audible.

Entertaining and educational

What did you like best about this story?

Really liked the H and H. Good character development.

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

Thought the narrator was excellent. She sounded like Ashford MacNab who is one of my favorite narrators.

Any additional comments?

Freedom of speech. We have always had it, so it was shocking to really realize how one could actually be hanged for having the audicicasity to draw political cartoons.
Very good story and well done.
