Niels got more than he bargained for when he broke into a certain townhouse in the fashionable section of London. The arrogant and dictatorial lord who caught him red-handed was more than willing to take advantage of the situation. Temporarily forced into a unique form of servitude, Niels learns more than he ever expected to about the decadent ruling class that he wants so badly to emulate. Masquerading as a foreign nobleman is easy for the charming Fin who grew to manhood on the streets of London, abandoned by the only family he had. But will his experience at manipulating people and winning their confidence help him with Richard? Or get him into even more trouble?

I probably would not try another book narrated by Vincent Kelly.
Probably, the story was lost in the robotic, wooden narration. It seems as if the narrator was uncomfortable with the text. Another narration style may be better.
There was no tone, volume, or speed modulation in Mr. Kelly's performance. He read most of the book as if it was just a series of boring, unrelated, run-on sentences. He could have been reading a how-to manual instead of a romance and the listener wouldn't know the difference. Unfortunately, the story was lost in his wooden performance.
I can't imagine this book being made into a movie, but, yes, I supposed I would.
I thought I was getting more when I downloaded this but still a enjoyed listen. Thought it would play out more to the master/servant story line
