For six long years Thomas Moreland has dreamed of the beautiful young noblewoman who rescued him from death. While amassing his fortune in India, not a day passed he did not recall Felicity's fair loveliness, did not recall the silken tones of her sweet voice, did not desire to possess her.
Now a widow, Felicity Harrison does not recognize the handsome nabob as the young man left for dead by highwayman years earlier. Though she wants nothing more than to snub the arrogant man who promises to rescue her family from financial ruin in exchange for presenting his sister to Society, she cannot snub him. She must force herself to bear his company. But the longer she is with him, the more she has to force herself to remain true to her dead husband's memory. Why is it the humbly born Thomas Moreland possesses more nobility that any man of her class? And why is it she finds it harder and harder to mourn a dead man when Thomas's virility awakens her deepest desires?

His love was lasting, could they save each other?
This audio version was well read, I loved both print and audio versions. I love to listen to books, but I enjoy reading as well, I can not choose between the two versions, but I recommend you enjoy one of the two. This is a lovely book with characters that will endear themselves to you.
My most memorable moment was when Felicity finally discovers the whole truth, and opens her heart. She not only knows that her past actions have brought her to this point in her life, she embraces her future completely.
My favorite character - as performed by the narrator is Thomas Moreland. He seemed to be performed as patient, calm and reasonable as she seemed to put a slow easy emphasis on his character, you could feel his thoughtfulness and caring for those around him.
Thomas is someone you can endear yourself to, and trust in. His philanthropic nature and his care for others is warming, he shows great honor to others and civic duty.
I did enjoy many of the other character performances; Carlotta seemed to purr at times, Glee seemed to sparkle and Felicity seemed to come to life as she moved past her grief.
I was most moved when Thomas called on George to request his help, in his pursuit to win Felicity's heart and hand, both men were humbled by their love and dedication for the women in their hearts had been given to. That moment made you think back to when George visited Thomas to request Dianna's hand.
The humanity and care you show in life, even to a stranger, can come back around when you need it most, bringing a renewal of life, love and truth.
The Brides of Bath Series is one of my favorites. The characters show their great potential for growth in the first book, and do not disappoint int the rest of the series. I ;highly recommend this book and this series. Having read the series, I am enjoying the audio versions immensely.
