Publisher's Summary

Claire Stuart is looking forward to her first season in London when she slips next door to the churchyard to spend a few quiet moments alone. There, an unwanted encounter with the local viscount turns into an assault. Claire fights back and escapes with her virtue intact only to be blackmailed by his sister, Lady Regina, who witnessed the attack. Claire now faces ruin if she does not meet the terms of the blackmail - convince the Earl of Roydon to marry her, even though a long-standing arrangement has matched him with Lady Regina.
Noel Mallory, the Duke of Lamborton, meets Claire and is immediately enamored by her. He becomes frustrated, however, when she alternately seems to welcome his attentions and spurn them. Worse, she seems to be seeking the attentions of his best friend, the Earl of Roydon. Noel sets out to win Claire's love and discover the reason behind her confusing behavior.

Enjoyable listen.

This is a good, clean, entertaining novel. There is not a lot of guessing yet I never lost interest.
Valerie Gilbert delivered a stellar performance!
This book was well worth the credit!

Definitely interested in hearing more

This was the first time I've read/listened to a story by this author and I'm glad I did. I'm a big fan of historical romance and really liked this story. Plus, I'm a huge fan of the narrator, Valerie Gilbert. The story itself was engaging and held my attention the entire time I listened to it. There were times when I'd have to stop and do something else, and I really disliked having to do so. lol I'm definitely interested in reading/listening to more stories by this author.
