The Roxtons are back! Romance. Drama. Intrigue. Family secrets. There's never a dull moment for the 18th century's first family.
Widowed and destitute, Lady Mary Cavendish is left with only her pride. Daughter of an earl and great-granddaughter to a Stuart King, family expectation and obligation demands she remarry. But not just any man will do; her husband must rank among the nobility. Falling in love with her handsome and enigmatic neighbor is out of the question. As always, Mary will do her duty and ignore her heart.
Country squire Christopher Bryce has secretly loved his neighbor Mary for many years. Yet he is resigned to the cruel reality they are not social equals, and thus can never share a future together. Never mind that his scandalous past and a heartbreaking secret make him thoroughly unworthy of such a proud beauty.
Then into their lives steps a ghost from Mary's past, whose outrageous behavior has Mary questioning her worldview and Christopher acting upon his feelings, and for all to see. The mismatched couple begin to wonder if in fact love can prevail - that a happily ever after might just be possible if only they dare to follow their hearts.
Fans of the series will also delight in being reacquainted with the fascinating, always surprising, and never ordinary members of the Roxton family.

Incredible Story, Fantastic Narration
I would absolutely recommend this audiobook to a friend. Lucinda Brant did it again with Proud Mary- a fantastic continuation of the Roxton series, and Alex Wyndham rounds out the audiobook with incredible narration making the characters come to life.
It is hard to pinpoint my favorite part of this story, but I think I like the fact that Mary and Christopher were from a less extravagant area of life made them more relatable to me as a reader (listener). I love Christopher's love for Mary's daughter Teddy.
EVERYTHING. Alex Wyndham is on my immediate-buy list due his fantastic narration. Without noting who is speaking, Alex is able to change his voice for each character that you know immediately who is talking.
I cannot wait to continue the Roxton series. I have loved every book Lucinda has written, but the Roxton series is my favorite and Proud Mary held to being one of my favorites.
Once again Lucinda weaves a love story with a twist in it! Mary Cavendish, having been a widow for several years now, is pressured by her mother to remarry and to remarry well in order to return to polite society. Evelyn has offered to marry her but also noticed the attraction between Mary and Christopher. The twist here is that Evelyn has given Mary a month to think about it before making it official, while he gave Christopher a month to be with Mary to 'get her out of his system'. Thus, the story of true love begins and in the end of the month, Mary and Christopher admits their love for each other.
Thank you, Lucinda, for keeping us entertained with your fabulous stories and Alex Wyndham for your wonderful performance!
