Publisher's Summary

War hero Alistair Carsington really really loves women, and his romantic impulses have landed him in nearly as much danger as the Battle of Waterloo. To avoid his usual temptations and perhaps even repay the friend who saved his life, he's exiled himself to a place far from civilization - Derbyshire - in winter! Fate laughs at his good intentions and drives him straight into conflict with Miss Mirabel Oldridge, his match in tenacity, intelligence, and deviousness - who also happens to be wildly irresistible.
Mirabel Oldridge is already overwhelmed by her responsibilities, caring for her brilliant but eccentric father and the family lands, constantly on the verge of trouble. She does not need a devastatingly handsome, too smart, and empathetic aristocrat reminding her that she has a heart and a delectable body, so unfashionably clothed that he claims undressing her is a moral obligation. Now neither of them can resist temptation - how can something so wrong feel so very wonderful?

Finally! The Carsington's Come to Audible

This series starts with the third Carsington brother. He has been wounded at Waterloo and suffers from PTSD like many returning soldiers. The story line centers around the attempt to build a waterway from a small hamlet in the English rural countryside to carry coal to market. His antagonist is a beautiful, distracting spinster who is incapable of keeping her hair neat.

I am a huge fan of Loretta Chase's Historical Romances. She shares the pinnacle of the genre with few others. She has paired her wonderful romances with a Grand Dame of narration, Ms. Kate Reading.

I hope you enjoy this treat like I did.

- Equusdreamer "Day dreaming book lover!"

Couldnt finish

Ho.ly. Heck!!!! I couldnt even get through the darn thing because Kate Reading, whom I happened to thoroughly enjoy in the Into the Wilderness series, was A.W.F.U.L as the main character in this book!!! Every time Mirabel "spoke" (EVERY TIME!) it was a horrid breathy airy attempt at a sultry voice. All it did was to make me cringe over and over and over. I tried to adapt, as we sometimes have to to new a new book, but by chapter 12 I tried increasing the speed up just to get through the book, and halfway through that I gave up.
I cant even comment on the story, quitting midway through, but Kate Reading was NOT the narrator for this. I am returning the book and the following ine in the series, Mr, Impossible, that I'd already purchasednin anticipation.
