En route to her first season in London, however, a failed kidnapping sends her into the arms of the most jaded bachelor in England. When Logan and Jillian unwittingly violate the rigid rules of propriety in Victorian-era England, he is obliged to make her an offer of marriage. Because she aspires to be more than an obligation, Jillian refuses the match. Logan follows her to London to woo her properly, but his scheming ex-fiance has other plans.
Can Logan convince Jillian that his love for her is real or will the cruel gossip and sharp tongues of London society tear their budding relationship apart?
A romantic Victorian-era novella set in 1899, England.

Great Character Role
Because I haven't had time anymore to read, I listen to books on my way to work in the car. This book was awesome to listen to. It's not normally one I would pick up and read, but I am fond of Rachel F. Hirsch and her reading style. She is top notch when it comes voice acting.
That would probably be a spoiler and I against those.
Again, Rachel's voice acting and reading is perfect. Her accent impression is excellent.
It made me laugh. And like every book I get into, it made me antsy for what was going to happen next.
I would highly recommend this.

Great little love story!
Absolutely! And have. It's a great little love story, and Rachel F. Hirsch's narration makes each character seem so interesting that all you want to do is keep listening.
It's a TV series, but I would definitely compare this to Downton Abbey. Like the show, you get a behind the scenes look at the British Aristocracy and their help.
Without giving too much away, the hero rescues the heroine when she is set-up by jealous peers resulting in a very uncomfortable, and potentially dangerous, situation. I was rooting for the couple through the whole book.
Yes. And it is only 3 hours long, so it goes fast. I couldn't stop listening. I took it with me from the car, to the house, etc. until it was done!
I would listen to it again, and just might :)
