When spymaster John Andrews receives word that plans are afoot to sell England's secrets to her enemies during the Ides of March ball at the Westerfield Estate, he is determined to bring an end to this treasonous game. Posing as a gentleman by the name of Lord Darlington to stake out the event, he is ready for anything as he mingles with the members of the ton... except falling for his prime suspect, the lovely wallflower Miss Eliza Hunt, in whose trunk the secret documents are soon found.
After new evidence leads him to believe Eliza may be innocent, John cannot wait to catch the traitors, clear her of all suspicion, and then ask for her hand. Though he fears he is not the sort of man worth having as a husband, he knows that if he wants Eliza as his own, he will need to face the demons of his past and lay claim to the title and the birthright he abandoned long ago.
Eliza knows Lord Darlington is not the gentleman he purports to be, but he is the first man to see beyond the birthmark on her face and treat her like a beautiful woman. She dreams of a life at his side - and in his bed - even once it becomes clear he stands ready to punish disobedience with firm chastisement applied to her bare bottom! As he draws her out of her shell and demands she let go of her self-doubt, her desire for him grows ever stronger. But can their love survive the shadowy designs of those who would do England harm?

Fabulous Spanking Historical!

A Delightful Caper
I think the print version was delightful in itself, but the audio version brought the story to life. This was the first time I listened to an audio book and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
I would compare The Darlington Incident to The Reddington Scandal or The Westerfield Affair because they are by the same author and all share the same world. But really, they all have a Jane Austen-like feel.
I enjoyed Elliott Daniels performance of Andrews the best.
Yes, I really did want to listen to this all at once!
This was an excellent book when I read it in print and I think it was only enhanced by having it in audio form. I think the author and the narrator are both very good at their jobs!
