    Lord Ferdinand Dudley is accustomed to getting what he wants... that is, until he appears at the door of Pinewood Manor, attempting to claim his rightful estate, and is met by the bewitching fury of Lady Viola Thornhill. She refuses to cede him the home she calls her own. He refuses to leave. And so the contest begins....

    Story

    The narrator was excellent, the story, not so much.

    Actually, it started off good, had some interesting ideas, but totally bogged down in the neverending middle. The hero was too good to be true, a paragon. I struggled through the first few hours and was about to give up when there was a spark of interest, an unexpected twist, but then more blah, blah, blah had me skipping chapters and hours of the second half of the book until I listened to the last 30 minutes.

    This was my first (and probably last) book by this author. When I enjoy a book in a series and meet characters from a previous book, I often get that book to learn their stories. In this case, I am mildly curious about those characters, but won't be getting the book as I don't have confidence that I could listen to it, fearing another boggy middle.
