Publisher's Summary

Love and jealousy abound in this playful romance, set during the British Regency.
Everyone in the ton knew that Lord Hubert Challenge had married country mouse Mary Tyre for her dowry, but no one had yet guessed that Mary had actually fallen in love with her husband! And she was willing to try anything - sumptuous clothes, a saucy manner, even flirting with another man - to get her handsome husband's attention…until she learned that two could play at that particular game.

Awful

I've almost read all of Chesneys regency period novels I have about ten more to go. This one was just terrible!

Dreadful people - ICK

MC Beaton's regency stories are usually peopled with less likable characters and contain more abusive situations than is typical of the genre, but usually there is some change and redemption by the end of the book. There are NO sympathetic characters in this book nor do they ever become likable. In fact, I grew to dislike them more as the story went along.

One distasteful aspect of some Beaton stories is violence to women. This book has both casual and deliberate violence toward women. Because I'd not previously encountered a Beaton book this awful, I continued to listen to the end hoping for better, but I was heartily sick of both main characters and the book itself by the time I got to the end.

It makes me leery of listening to the next one I downloaded...
