Amelia Ravenscroft is desperate to escape her aunt’s home, where she endures a life of drudgery whilst fighting off her lecherous cousin. When she overhears Viscount Demarr confiding in a friend that he needs to marry "at once", she boldly proposes a marriage of convenience.
Amelia soon proves herself a perfect fit for the role of Lady Demarr. But their blossoming relationship is blighted by suspicions regarding Amelia’s past. Will they find, all too painfully, that if you marry in haste you repent at leisure?

I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
Genre: Regency romance
The narration was overly dramatic, and the males sounded forced. I think I would have preferred a straight reading from this narrator.
The story itself is average, though I almost gave it only 2 stars due to the narration. But that's like giving a restaurant a crappy review when your problem is with the server. So, overall this is a fair story. The characters were somewhat one dimensional, but how much depth can characters be in just under 3 1/2 hours? The basic premise was interesting, and had the author developed the characters a little better I think it could have edged up to a high average.
