Publisher's Summary

The last thing wounded veteran Major Thomas Marshal wanted was a title. It wasn't supposed to happen. But duty has a way of pulling a man into things he doesn't want and away from the things he needs.
The only thing Miss Guinevere Harding needs is a safe place to hide. A job as the downstairs maid at Brookshire is the perfect refuge from a frightening past. Or, at least it was until the arrival of the new duke.
Heat and passion pull Thomas and Gwen together, even as society and duty fight to keep them apart. She won't become his mistress and can't become his wife.
Thomas is determined otherwise, even if it costs him everything.

This has to be one of the worst novels I've had the misfortune encountering. Bad enough to compel me to write my second book review ever, and my first negative one.

Idiotic, stilted, and hokey plot, supremely shallow character development, and lukewarm narrating make this a torture device worthy of Gitmo. To be fair, the narrator may have been just as bored desperate to be done with it as I, so I will not hold it against her too much. Unlike the narrator, and to my relief, I was not obligated to endure the tedium.

Very poor narrator

First of all, the story wasn't horrid. Unfortunately, the narration was.

The story was passable. Some of the dialogue was choppy. And the terrible narration didn't help. The reader was inconsistent with her accents (where did the Americans come from?) and not very good at "acting" out the parts. And in the long run, that's what the good narrators do.

I finished this but it was far from one of my favorites.
