Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time there were three young ladies who, despite their fortunes, had been on the marriage mart a bit too long. They were known as "the Spinster Heiresses"....
He's inherited a title, but not a penny to speak of, so the Earl of Rochdale knows he must find a wife - preferably one tolerably pretty and good-tempered but definitely wealthy, and who will exchange her fortune for his family name.
His choice: Leonie Charnock, one of the season's "Spinster Heiresses". Years before, the earl had saved the dark-eyed beauty's reputation, and she is still breathtakingly lovely, leading Rochdale to hope that their marriage will be more than in name only.
However, Leonie doesn't want to be anyone's wife. Nearly destroyed by the secrets in her past, Leonie agrees to their union with one condition: There will be a wedding but no bedding. But it's a condition the new Countess Rochdale isn't sure even she can keep....

It's all just a little too easy

The heroine's alcohol abuse is an interesting concept, but her recovery is glossed over too lightly. Perhaps it is my personal experience with an alcoholic loved one that caused me to be dissatisfied. Two books that present more realistic alcoholic behavior are Carla Kelly's Reforming Lord Ragsdale and The Rake by Mary Jo Putney.

Not Cathy's Normal Light-Heartedness

Listened / Read for Fun (Won Copy/Audible)
Overall Rating: 4.00
Story Rating: 4.25
Character Rating: 3.75

Audio Rating: 4.50 (not part of the overall rating)

Story/Character thoughts: I want to state that while Leonie was a very hard character to like at times, her story was compelling. This is not the normal light heart read that Cathy usually gives us but it was very well done indeed! I think she did a great job of handling issues surrounding drinking, in a time where that wasn't talked about much. Also I liked the slow burn of the romance even when I wasn't a fan of Leonie. In the end, it worked for me!

Audio Thoughts: Mary Jane Wells killed the audio as always :) :)
