Publisher's Summary

When the Marquis of Amberley's coach is waylaid by highwaymen and his coachman shot, he is forced to take shelter at the first house he finds and is subsequently trapped there for a week by a severe snowstorm.
Oakleigh Manor is the home of Rosalind Vernon who lives alone but for her devoted servants and an ill-natured parrot, cut off from the outside world by the tragic result of a childhood accident. But Rosalind is brave and bright and totally devoid of self-pity - and it is these qualities which, as the days pass and the snow continues to fall, touch Amberley's heart.
On his return to London, the Marquis persuades Rosalind's brother, Philip, to bring her to town for a taste of society, despite her handicap. But the course of Amberley's courtship is far from smooth. Philip Vernon actively dislikes him; Rosalind appears to be falling under the spell of the suavely elegant Duke of Rockliffe; and worse still, Amberley is haunted by a dark and terrible secret that, if revealed, may cause him to lose Rosalind forever.

Alex Wyndham's voice should be used for ALL heroes

What can I say about this narration except SUPERB. I am half in love with the fictional heroes Alex portrays because of his narrations. He has a true gift.
The story was also superbly written and the dialogue was fabulous. The book reminded me of reading my other beloved writer Lucinda Brant's called the "Roxton Family Saga" series. Mother was also French in that book and if I did not know better I'd believe this is one and the same writer. I still enjoyed this book thoroughly even though it almost seemed like it was an extension of that series. LOVED this book. Wish it was longer.

Alex Wyndham is a must hear narrator!

My friends raved about the Parfit Knight, and I was not moved to read it. For a few bad reasons. I judged the book by its cover and as an American parfit sounds like a dessert. But I looked parfit up at last, and it means perfect. Finally it was Alex Wyndham performance that drew me to it. If you haven’t heard Alex reading a book I suggest you do so now without fail. He is perfection.
Anyway back to the book. It is a sweet book with very likable characters, it is a “clean” story all romance no sex, but it really didn’t matter to me. It is sweetly written. All of her books are being reissued and I understand that Alex will also be lending his vocal talent to Ms. Riley's reissued books. Can't wait for her English Civil War/ Restoration books to come out in audio..
