Publisher's Summary

Beautiful, exuberant, and stubborn Georgiana Black has more spirit than sense - which she learns when an ultimatum to the Earl of Beckenham at a London ball ends their engagement. Six years later, Georgie is less concerned with impending spinsterhood than with making sure her young sister doesn't make the same mistakes she did. But soon Georgie stumbles into a scandalous encounter with none other than her former fiancé.
Beckenham is still breathtakingly desirable - and as iron-willed as ever...Beckenham's brief engagement to Georgie taught him one thing - when it comes to a wife, he wants a woman who will do her duty and cause no trouble. When the fiery Georgie falls unexpectedly into his arms, Beckenham remembers just how lushly delectable she is. Suddenly, the idea of actually marrying Georgie is irresistible. Georgie and Beckenham finally have a second chance at love. But in a battle of wills, can passion conquer pride?

Very Wordy

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I don't really know. Maybe someone with lots of patience. The concept of the story was very good, however it was so wordy that it became so frustrating that I had to stop about half way through. I kept falling asleep and when I woke up, I hadn't really missed anything.

What could Christina Brooke have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Less description of what is going on inside the main characters mind. It was the same thing only worded a little differently and done over and over and over again.

Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Wiley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

She is very, very good. She is the main reason I purchased the book.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Frustration!

Can you say travesty?

Setting: London
Genre: Regency romance
The performance was average, neither good, nor bad. I wouldn't get excited to see another book narration by her, as I do with some.

Thank goodness for the fast forward feature. The plot was a good premise. I love the separated lovers who find one another again trope. But... The characters were just unlikable. Marcus, the Earl of Beckenham, was an interesting secondary character in the first book of the series, but he couldn't pull off his own story. And Georgie doesn't seem to have matured in the 6 years since she last saw Marcus. I know miscommunication is an oft-used plot device, but it doesn't need to be present with every character, to the point where no one knows what's going on.
This is not worth the time and credit.
