Publisher's Summary

After waiting five years for her fiancé to return from the war and marry her, Roxana Langley has been jilted! She may have longed for excitement, but this was not what she had in mind....
Who could possibly throw over a woman as beautiful and vivacious as Roxana? Certainly not Alex Winslow, the Earl of Ayersley, who has spent years trying in vain to forget his unrequited love. When he learns she's been abandoned by her cad of a fiancé, he finds himself offering a shoulder for her to cry on. Comfort soon turns into a passionate kiss—and scandal when they are caught in an embrace.
Only one thing will save Roxana from certain ruination: marriage to the earl. The match may save her reputation, but responsible, tongue-tied Ayersley is a far cry from her dashing former fiancé. She's convinced Ayersley is merely doing his duty...while he's sure Roxana is still in love with another man. Are they trading one disaster for another?

Rosalyn Landor saves the day

I really liked Alex's character, the misunderstood hero, who puts up with a lot from Roxana who is continually comparing him to her wonderful George who is a womanising rake but she just doesn't see it. I found her character to be one of those really really annoying clueless types so I just couldn't sympathise with her character at all. It should have been a good listen but unfortunately I had no affinity with the supposed heroine of the plot so I was only routing for a happy ending for Alex's sake.

Another worthy narration by Rosalyn.

Worth my credit? No, there's better out there, but if it goes on sale then maybe it's worth the $ but not a credit.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"


I always hesitate before trying a new romance author because you never know how corny the story will be, or how bad the writing. Alyssa Everett is one of those that you come across and hope that more of her books become available, like yesterday. This is the sweetest story of unrequited love that is finally satisfied. The hero has loved the heroine his whole life and she has NO idea. I thought that it would be difficult for me to like her after reading the description, but once again Ms. Landor's voice makes the heroine sweet, and the author makes her humble. Wonderful combo! I have never run accross a romance where the hero actually wants the heroine throughout the whole book, but this is a wonderful change. He loves her, REALLY loves her, and it is nice to see an author portray a "nice guy" as the hero for a change! I HIGHLY suggeset adding this to your collection!!!
