A rollercoaster of a story

This is the story of two people with messed-up childhoods who come together despite class distinctions. They marry (not a spoiler) and then their lives take on a series of obstacles. Lots of obstacles. Sophia cares deeply for her younger brother and hopes to provide them both with a better life. She meets Nathan, the Duke of Scarsdale, who wants to save her from a horrible existence in her father's tavern. What happens from there is what gives the rollercoaster of emotions. The ending was a bit rushed, however.

I don't agree with the publishers review that Sophia is a hoyden.

The narration was quite good. So many times, male readers portray female voices as too high-pitched or whiny. Tim Campbell reads all the voices well.

Any additional comments?

The story started out very good but fell off the cliff fast. Someone is trying to kill The Duke of Scarsdale. During one of theses attempts he was nursed by Sophie Vane a tavern waitress. Her drunkard father Frank owned the tavern. Frank insists that Sophie and Scarsdale marry, because she was alone with him unclothe. His Shirt was off. Yeah right!! No Duke would marry a waitress working at a tavern no matter if she did save his life. Anyway to protect Sophie and her brother Harry from further physical abuse by there father Frank they marry. I liked all the characters but the story gets weighed now with Scarsdale kidnapping an torture. This goes on to long Then his escape and what he perceives as the betrayal of his wife Sophie. I wanted to just say at this point OK already get on with the romance. All these different dark scenarios detract from what could have been a very good romance and love story, between Sophie and Nathan. If you like stories with mistress and plots aplenty then My Seductive Innocent is for you. But for me it just missed the mark
