Publisher's Summary

A Marriage of Convenience
Such is the agreement forged between Lady Jessica Stanton and Simon Warland, Earl of Northcote. Jessica needs a husband strong enough to protect her inheritance from her avaricious stepbrother. Simon needs money to restore the family legacy his father squandered. United by necessity, emotional attachment isn’t part of the deal.
An Unexpected Passion
Yet once the reluctant newlyweds are living under the same roof, Simon can’t ignore the startling intellect, gentle strength, and graceful beauty Jessica keeps so carefully hidden from the world. And Jessica is intrigued to discover Simon’s formidable temper masks a kind, noble heart. But when Simon’s true motive for their marriage is revealed, Jessica is devastated by his betrayal. Because, despite her best intentions, she is falling in love with her husband. And love is the last thing either of them wants - though it may be exactly what they need.

A FAIRYTALE LOVE STORY THAT'S ENTERTAINING

I think when we listen to these FICTIONAL, historical romances there are 2 categories of listeners - 1. the listener that want's everything researched, researched, researched and then verified (absolutely nothing wrong with that if that's what you like), and 2. the listener who just want's a fanciful romance that's pure escapism and who wants just a bit of enjoyable fun to pass the time whilst doing a particularly dull chore or task. I think this is why this book is getting such varied reviews and I sadly, fall into the 2nd category - so I will give my review based on my own personal tastes.

I found this to be thoroughly enjoyable, touching, funny, sweet and romantic and it has some great characters too that you can't help but empathise with - handsome penniless Rake and a deaf rich but modest heiress. There is an evil villain who had 'allegedly' raped a servant of 13/14 and done some 'unmentionable' acts but, as with all these types of books, he gets 'dealt with'. Great narration by Ms. Landor too.

Worth a credit? If you fall in category 2 then - YES absolutely - but for $9.79 for nearly 11hrs I would just buy it, save your credit and spend it on a more expensive listen.

- 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"

Loved the plot and the humour

My sister and I listened to the audible version during a long car trip. It is romance as I like it - a plot that moves along and lots of laugh-out-loud humour. I liked the audio so much that I bought it for my Kindle, and I bought the other two of her books that audible has available. I read/listen to a lot of romance books, but this one really stood out for me. I suppose it really comes down to personal preference.
