Publisher's Summary

While Lady Angeline Dudley’s pedigree dictates that she must land a titled gentleman, the irrepressible beauty secretly longs for a simple, ordinary suitor. No wild rakes like the men of her family, just a kind heart and good nature. So when Edward Ailsbury, the new Earl of Heyward, rescues her with unmatched civility from the advances of a scoundrel, Angeline thinks that she has found her true love. Persuading the earl is another matter entirely.
Edward has his future neatly mapped out. He hopes to wed his steadfast companion, a woman who shares his values of loyalty, respect, and decorum. But arriving in London to take his seat in the House of Lords, he is derailed by Angeline, an exquisite bird of paradise seemingly devoted to sending his predictable life into chaos.
From the brilliant hues of her fashion to her hoydenish antics, Angeline is the last woman on earth for Edward. And yet a stolen kiss in the moonlight awakens something deep and primal within him. Naturally, being a gentleman, he does the right thing after compromising a lady: He offers marriage.
Angeline knows that Edward’s proposal is born of duty, not love. But denying something so provocative and passionate is easier said than done. Deep down, Angeline believes that Edward’s dedication to convention will melt behind closed doors, where sensuality and seduction play wicked games. For a proper wife by day can become a husband’s secret mistress by night, when delicious desire rules.

Pleasantly Surprised....

After reading the other review, I was sceptical about getting this one, even though I have enjoyed other Balogh novels. Although not high literature, this recording was a pleasant enough surprise. I enjoyed the slightly flightly main character, who is somewhat more lighthearted than Balogh's other more serious heroines. It was worth using a credit.

The love story was created too fast and the characters were not developed as well as expected. Angeline was a simple minded chatter box the hero would have never liked prior to meeting her. A forced love and a far below par story I have ever read written by Mary Balogh. Don't purchase. Move on to a better book.
