Publisher's Summary

Miss Sophia Vane, a hoyden of the first order, makes an unlikely match when she weds Nathaniel Ellison, the rich and wary Duke of Scarsdale. What starts with an unexpected friendship soon blooms into a fiery passion. But a betrayal plunges Sophia into the thorny world of London Society and entangles her in a labyrinth of manipulation and jealousy that will test the strength of her marriage. Behind her husband's sudden icy facade, Sophia believes dwells the caring, passionate man she loves. To break through the barriers and reclaim their happiness, they must do more than simply cast away their pride. They must fight for their very lives.

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.

PREDICTABLE BUT OKAY!!

What made the experience of listening to My Seductive Innocent the most enjoyable?

Amelia her brother Harry's relationship!!

Would you be willing to try another book from Julie Johnstone? Why or why not?

Not Sure

What about Tim Campbell’s performance did you like?

Great Narration. Tim Campbell does an excellent job narrating the different characters and there accents.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I wouldn't make a movie of this book

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
