He put her on a pedestal.
When Celeste Gray arrives in the sleepy village of Brixcombe-on-the-Bay, she thinks she's one step closer to leaving her notorious past behind. She even suspects the deliciously handsome - if somewhat stuffy - viscount next door is developing a tendre for her. That is, until the day Ashlin Lancester learns she's not the unassuming spinster she's pretending to be.
Now she has farther to fall.
After a decade of proving he is nothing like his profligate father, Ash is horrified to have given his heart to a Cyprian. He launches a campaign to prove his attraction is nothing more than a sordid reaction he can't control. But he soon learns that, unlike his father, he can't find comfort in the arms of just any woman. He needs Celeste. When he takes her as his mistress, he's still not satisfied, and the many late nights in her arms only make him want more....

I would definitely recommend this audiobook to friends. I love the story (although the hero is a bit of an idiot -- just makes you love him) and the narration is done wonderfully.
While it was a highly unlikely occurrence for that time period -- especially as it involved a whole aristocratic family -- I loved that the story was about love -- even outside your societal class.
She had, of course, the perfect accent for the delivery -- ENGLISH!!! However, she paced the delivery excellently and portrayed the different characters very well.
Actually -- I did listen to this book all in one sitting. Can you believe it!!! God bless those little listening devices that you can just stick in a pocket and listen while you walk on the treadmill, clean house, etc.
I'd like to thank Emma Locke for an advanced review copy.

Not all heroines are innocent
Yes. I didn't think I was going to like this book, but I ended up loving it. The heroine isn't your typical lead, she's worldly, rich and smart.
Yes, yes, yes!
For me, this book was simply fantastic. I love that the characters don't follow the normal rules. They sometimes even shock themselves.
