This may have been better than the first book, and the first book Mistress of Pleasure was really good. Great strong characters, great story, witty dialogue, hot and steamy sex, its all here.
At the beginning of the book I did think I was reading the books out of order. However, I finally realized that what was happening with the main characters, Alex and Charlotte was also happening at the same time as what was happening in the first book with Maybelle and Edmond. I know that sounds confusing, but its not really. You will figure it out. You're not reading out of order. Book 1 is Mistress of Pleasure and Book 2 is Lord of Pleasure.
Ahh if all men were required to attend the School of Gallantry, that would be treat. LOL
The narrator did a good job, but again, just as in the first book she pronounced the "ton" as the "tone" which was annoying. Historical Romance readers know what I am talking about. Otherwise she did do a very good job.
Definitely credit worthy.

I was unaware that this is actually book 2 of the School Of Gallantry series but it could be a stand-alone listen and I listened to this first and I'm glad I listened to it the wrong way round because some of the characters seem a bit heartless and cold in book 1. It also gives a full description of how and why the secret tunnel and friendships were developed.
It's a totally implausible, passionate, sweet, funny, romantic romp through Regency London where we find Charlotte a beautiful, penniless Widow who's turning to desperate measures because her life is so dire. She propositions our hero Alexander - a reformed Rake who's handsome, charming, witty and deeply cares for the well-being and reputation of his 5 sisters (whose witty banter stole the show) and, because of his reformed ways he doesn't take her up on her proposition..... but weeks later he still can't forget her.
An enjoyable unrealistic plot ensues that's touching, sensual, sexy, lol funny and tender as we witness the H/H's attraction deepen and, as they try to fight it, their character development is heartwarming but necessary to overcome prejudices and scandals in order to get their romantic HEA ending. There's also some quirky secondary characters that make this a thoroughly entertaining listen.
Worth a credit? A lighthearted listen with no villains except the ton - so YES a delightful creditworthy listen as long as you're not expecting anything other than romantic FICTION.
