Publisher's Summary

Adam Faramond, Earl of Rothbury, needs to find a wife -immediately! - or his beloved grandmother swears she'll leave him penniless. But Adam, an unrepentant rake, would only renounce a life of scandalous pleasure for one woman, the woman he's lusted after - and loved - for years. It's rather unfortunate, then, that Miss Charlotte Greene, a shy but beautiful blonde of impeccable manners and breeding, would never consent to be the blushing bride of a rogue...or so he thinks.
But Charlotte believes that the earl, the only man whose touch leaves her trembling with desire, would never want a woman like her. Weary of her wallflower ways, Charlotte decides a friendship with the earl just might give her the excitement she desires. Keeping their true feelings hidden, she and Adam plan a sham ceremony to placate the dowager. But when the "marriage" of convenience takes an unexpected turn, will Charlotte and her wicked earl finally reveal their irresistible, unforgettable love - and delight in a lifetime of passion?

Good premise but needs tighter writing/logic check

I always like stories about spinsters and wallflowers - I just can't relate to the drop dead beautiful heros and heroines. What bothered me most was that Charlotte climbs in Rothbury's bedroom window and claims that she thought it was his study. Give me a break - the study should be on the ground floor and the living quarters on the upper floor! There are also some strange descriptions, e.g., twirling eyes (what does that mean?) and "he rounded her" - did the writer mean he rounded ON her? I just think that this story could have used tighter editing and more direct storytelling and less extraneous vocabulary. I like stories best that show me the story vice telling me the story. I think this writer has a lot of potential, and that's why I gave this a four star rating.

Ahhhh....... love can conquer all

Firstly, this is actually a follow-up book to Bride Hunt Ball which Audible has not yet got, but that said - it's a good stand alone book. Typical handsome rake story except he's in love with a wallflower with glasses not the usual belle of the ball type but she is interested in his friend. A very enjoyable listen, yes there were a few minor plot 'flaws' but they don't really distract you from the story which is really sweet.

Worth a credit? Mmmmm. it's one of those "I enjoyed it but...." books - its 8.5 hrs long and there are loads of books out there that are much longer and even more enjoyable so, in answer to the question, yes I'm happy I spent the credit and don't regret it at all but if you're short on credits then you could Wish List it and wait until it's on sale.
