Britain’s high society—le bon ton—loves nothing more than a good scandal, and they’re giddy with the appearance of wealthy Samuel Hartley. Not only is he self-made, American, and in the habit of wearing moccasins, but he is also notorious for fleeing a battle in which several English gentlemen lost their lives. What le bon ton doesn’t know, though, is that Samuel is in London because of this massacre. He believes his regiment was given up to the enemy and won’t rest until he finds the traitor.
Lady Emeline Gordon is captivated by Samuel. Not only does he defy convention with his unusual dress, his sensual smile, and his forthright manner, but he survived the battle that killed her beloved brother. Samuel suspects that the person responsible for her brother’s death is Jasper Renshaw, Viscount Vale, a family friend since childhood—and Emeline’s fiancé. Despite Emeline’s belief in Vale’s innocence and her refusal to break off her betrothal, she and Samuel begin a passionate affair. But can their relationship survive the fallout from Samuel’s investigation?

Wasn't sure what to expect since I have never "read" this author, but I am currently downloading book 2. Loved it, of course I absolutely enjoy this period of time in romance novels. I like how the main story follows the "fairy tale" that is the back meaning of this book. Ahhh, true love and the pursuit of it. Ann Flosnik does an excellent job as always, she and Polly Lee and the lilt of English I truly love, had some trouble with the Boston Colonial accent, but it didn't hurt the story. Worth the credit or the purchase. I see book 3 is also available. Cant Wait!!!! LOL I love audio books, I can do 2 things at once LOL.

The prickly nature of the heroine of this book tended to grate on my nerves, but the overall story wasn't bad. The great narration made up for anything that was lacking. I am looking forward to the next installment of the series.
