Just when Leo, Baron Warhurst, thinks his family’s financial situation can’t get any worse, he discovers that his unwed sister is pregnant. The Warhurst estate is already crumbling thanks to Leo’s father’s numerous indiscretions, and unless Leo can prevent another scandal from erupting before he makes a fortuitous match with a wealthy heiress, his family will be ruined. Such are the dire straits that bring the ruthless young nobleman to the White Swan Inn, where he must suffer the indignity of asking a common seamstress for help spying on his sister’s lover.
Yet Alice Croft is anything but common. She is low-born, yes, but also strong-willed, clever, confident, and bears a luminous beauty Leo cannot ignore. Inexorably drawn to her, he knows that even the rumor of a liaison between them could ruin his marriage prospects. But the harder he fights against her, the stronger their attraction grows - until Leo is forced to choose between the woman who stole his heart and the family that demands his honor.
In this unforgettable follow-up to Her Secret Desire, Lord Warhurst’s turbulent love story unfolds with all the wit, passion, and drama that C. J. Archer’s growing legion of fans have come to expect.

Another GREAT Listen!!!!
I like that Warhurst fell in love with Alice the seamstress. Both Alice and Warhurst had to struggle with the "class" restrictions and expectations and finally overcame the issues. I think that I like Warhurst's mother the best though. She is such a strong determined woman and initially obviously does not approve of Alice, but she loves her children and has their best interest at heart.
Great - she's just great!
When the book ended I had a big grin on my face. This book just made me happy. At one point during the book I thought that I didn't like it as good as the first book in the series, but then as I kept listening this book is just as good as the first book. Just different.
I'll definitely be looking for more books by C. J. Archer. I love her writing style, characters and stories. Another great historical romance writer!
