Publisher's Summary

Young, widowed, and penniless, Lily Andrews, the Countess of Merrill, has strong opinions on marriage. When she spots a certain engagement announcement in The Times, she decides to take action. She will not allow another hapless girl to fall prey to a man - particularly the scoundrel who broke her heart five years ago. Anonymously she writes and distributes a pamphlet entitled "Secrets of a Wedding Night," knowing it will find its way into his intended's innocent hands.
Devon Morgan, the Marquis of Colton, desires a good wife and mother to his son - someone completely unlike Lily Andrews, the heartless beauty who led him on a merry chase five years ago only to reject him. When Devon's new fiancée cries off after reading a certain scandalous pamphlet, he vows to track down the author and make her pay. But when he learns it's his former fiancée Lily, he issues a challenge: write a retraction or prepare to be seduced - to find out how wonderful a wedding night can be....

Regency romance with secrets, scandals & seduction

Beware - this is a runaway listen - once you start you just can't stop.

I hadn't heard of Ms Bowman before so this was a gamble that happily paid off. The chemistry and tension between the two main likeable characters was (bang) right there from the start then the author brings in a plot that was funny, romantic and passionate, but also tragic and traumatic as the story unfolds and we see the effects the cruel deception committed by others in their past had on their lives.

Good secondary characters that I hope we will visit in future books but this story of Devon and Lily's journey as they battle out their mutual dislike, misunderstandings and distrust of each other to finally find friendship and desire shouldn't be missed.

Worth a credit? Yes it was well worth it.

- 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"

A good romance is a good romance

This book has humor, romance, good strong characters and believability. Neither of the key characters shows any of the sometimes sick characteristics displayed in so many romance novels. Instead they are normal people responding normally to life.

Justine Eyre is the perfect narrator for this story.
