Publisher's Summary

He is the next Marquess of Wolvington....
She is a lady with nothing but beauty and wits....
Together they share a forbidden kiss.
Lady Rebecca is determined to find a husband on her own terms, rather than marry any of the aging suitors her greedy aunt and uncle foist upon her. Her chance comes at the Kingsborough Ball, where she meets several potential grooms...yet no one compares to the dangerously handsome Daniel Neville.
Notorious rake and heir to the Marquess of Wolvington, Daniel Neville is in need of a bride, but finding a lady who's willing to accept his past is an entirely different matter. When he spies a stunning woman across the ballroom, Daniel believes he's found her...until scandal erupts around them. How can he convince Rebecca to take a chance on him...and on the love that could be theirs forever after?

What a lovely scandal.

Setting: Moxley, and London, England 1817
Genre: Romance
Narration: Susan Duerden gives a good performance. She has very good range in giving voice to the different characters.
The characters, even the minor ones, are well-written. Lady Rebecca is a lovely young woman being held, pretty much, prisoner by her greedy aunt and uncle. Daniel is the wastrel heir of the Marquess of Wolvington. They meet at the Kingsborough Ball and Daniel decides that she is the answer to his dilemma - he needs to marry by the end of the Season. Rebecca wants to avoid being married off to an elderly, lecherous peer, and Daniel might be a preferable option. The repartee is amusing and the plot is compelling enough that I couldn't put it down. I like that the characters, especially Daniel, grow during the course of the book. It was, overall, a satisfying use of my time.
Worth the credit? Definitely.

What a great story. NOT FULL OF ANGST!

This was such a great story. I loved that it was not full of angst the whole way through. Fantastic relief. More authors should write books with less angst like this one.

I absolutely loved the heroine in this story. She was funny, charming, very witty, beautiful and so happy, especially considering how she was treated by her aunt and uncle.

Loved Daniel, he was handsome, smart, and such a hero!

The chemistry between the two is fantastic. I really loved the way they got to know each other, I mean really and truly got to know each other. Yes there was attraction at first sight but it was so much more than that. The sex scenes were very very well written. They really liked each other in and out of bed. LOL The honesty between them is so great and not the norm for historical romance novels.

The story line and plot are great. The story flowed so well and just when you thought oh noo there is going to be a misunderstanding here... there wasn't!

I listened/read this in one day it so much fun to listen too, A genuine treat!

I totally recommend this book for all you historical romance fans that want to read a book with less angst and a hero and heroine you can really believe are made for each other.

As for the narration, it was fantastic. Susan Duerden did a fantastic job as usual. The men sound like men the women sound like women, all the characters get their own distinct voice. She reads with all the emotion the story calls for. Perfect narrator for this book!

Just a great very well written story! I want to see more of this author on audible!
