Publisher's Summary

A reluctant rake and a ruined woman with nothing to lose are a perfect match in this delightful comedy of manners from Christine Merrill....
Vincent Wilmont, the Earl of Blackthorne, makes a point of living up to his reputation as a rake, even though his heart isn't quite in it. Indeed, his heart rests with Caroline Sydney, the ruined woman who'd gone to his bed in passion after she'd rejected his cool-headed offer of respectable marriage. A year later, she's cast him off, humiliated him in front of all of London society, all because he made the damn-fool mistake of telling her he loved her.
Women.
Blackthorne's public humiliation earns him admittance into the Hephaestus Club, a secret brotherhood of societal rejects, and there he swears never to marry, putting money down on the oath. When the wager provides a motivation for a smart, if skint, gentleman matchmaker to cash in, Blackthorne and the fiery Miss Sydney find themselves the starring players in a romantic farce filled with duels, declarations, and passionate trysts as they rocket down a path toward a horrifyingly respectable future as man and wife.

Fun.

The recording quality is appalling. The narrator is probably quite good but it's hard to tell because of the recording issues.

The story is fun and could be a full novel with many in a series off of the one idea.

The heat factor is low but for several detailed descriptions and one very explicit scene.

Creditworthiness hindered by the cost being less than that of a credit. But I've listened to it a couple times now even though the recording is bad so it must be quite worth it.
