Publisher's Summary

An unusual heroine, Fiona Hawthorn grew up running free. Without a mother to restrain her, she spent her days riding her horse across her father's fields, or swimming like a sea nymph in the upper meadow lake. Trouble is, inside a prim and proper Regency sitting room Fiona is bound to overturn the teapot or accidentally trip the footman. Her notorious Aunt Honore decides to take the hoyden in hand, but amidst the strictures of the beau monde, Fiona is a fish out of water.
When she was younger, Lord Wesmont was her hero. Sadly, he came home from fighting Napoleon a hardened man. Nothing can breathe life back into his cold heart - nothing except, perhaps, the love of an unusual young woman who regularly turns his life upside-down.
Contains mature themes.

Annoying story, good narration.

Well this was sort or an annoying story for sure. The Aunt was not very funny for the most part, she had her moments but not that great. The characters were okay, the story line and plot was kind of boring. It was a struggle to get through for sure. I am glad it is over.

The story did not flow well. It had potential but the writing was lacking. I can't say I would listen to the next book in this series, This was also a rated G story so for those of you looking for a clean story this may be for you,

As for the narration, it was good, I like Beverly Crick's narrations she has gotten much better over the years and I enjoy her narrations. The men sound like men and she does read with emotion as called for, yelling, crying, laughing etc.. That was what kept me listening.

Don't Judge a Book By Its Cover

Fairly good plot, good character. Good writing. Terrible cover. I almost did't buy it , because the cover said the author did no research or didn't care. The research was well done. The Aunt at times over the top but had redeeming qualities. This is an R rating due to conversation mostly.
