Publisher's Summary

A taciturn soldier and a social butterfly - is the perfect home worth the price of a marriage of inconvenience?
Blake Montague's draconian temper and clever mind belong on the Continent, decoding French communications. Instead, as the youngest son of a baron, he's terrorizing London ballrooms in search of a wife who will buy the commission he can't afford.
Jocelyn Carrington, after years of smiling through the pain inflicted by an uncaring family, has just inherited a fortune. Now she can buy the special home with an aviary her eccentric younger brother needs - but Blake Montague's family owns it. They offer the house if she will marry their son and prevent him from marching off to war. Except Blake will use her dowry to buy his commission.
How can Jocelyn gain the home of her dreams while keeping alive a courageous man with a bad habit of attracting trouble? Can Blake believe the beautiful Jocelyn might actually free him from his family's manipulations? Can this wary, cynical pair open their hearts to trust in the power of love?

Critic Reviews

"Intriguing protagonists, quirky secondary characters, and a surprising plot make for an endearing sequel to...The Wicked Wyckerly." (Publishers Weekly)
"Rice takes her cast of characters - including the naughty French-speaking parrot, Percy - on a passionate, sensual, rib-tickling romance. A master of the nuances of humor, she brings joy, lots of love, and plenty of laughter to this fast-paced, unforgettable second Rebellious Sons story." (Joan Hammond, RT Reviews)
"Every character entertains and satisfies.... It's a sweet, sexy, fun romp with so much heart. I can't wait to read the next book in the series." (Anne Gracie, author of The Accidental Wedding)

Good one

A little slow but tolerable . The narrator saved the dull story from being totally boring .

Inventive author is poorly served by poor narrator.

I couldnt finish this book as the reader did not vary her voice at all but raced through the words as if her house was on fire. I even found it hard to follow the story which was turning out to be interesting. Such a shame.

The hero and heroine were really interesting in this story.However,I listen to books because I find the narrator adds so much to the story for me with accents and different people having different voices. This narrator didn’t bother, she might have been reading a newspaper article about the weather. How in the world did this woman become a narrator?
