Lady Ella Myerston knows of the danger that haunts her brother, and she intends to put an end to it. While visiting her friend Brook, the true owner of the Fire Eyes diamonds, Ella accidentally gets entangled in an attempt to blackmail the dashing, newly reformed Lord Cayton. Will she become the next casualty of the alleged curse?
Lady Ella Myerston can always find a reason to smile - even if it's just in hope that tomorrow will be better than today. All her life everyone has tried to protect her from the realities of the world, but Ella knows very well the danger that has haunted her brother and their friend, and she won't wait for it to strike again. She intends to take action, and if that happens to involve an adventurous trip to the Cotswolds, then so much the better.
Lord Cayton has already broken two hearts, including that of his first wife, who died before he could convince himself to love her. Now he's determined to live a better life. But that proves complicated when old friends arrive on the scene and try to threaten him into a life of crime. He does his best to remove the intriguing Lady Ella from danger, but the stubborn girl won't budge. How else can he redeem himself, though, but by saving her - and his daughter - from those dangerous people who seem ready to destroy them all?

While I haven't read the text completely, I did listen to the entire audio edition. I love the way the narration immerses me in the story. At times, I would listen to the audio while reading the text. I would have to say that the audio edition is every bit as good as the print version and for me just a little bit better.
I adored Lady Ella. She was so overly positive that her few moments of irritation and frustration were very entertaining.
Liz Pearce gives each character a unique voice and I love her accents. Since so many of the characters have distinct accents, it made it all the more enjoyable.
I laughed aloud many times while listening to this audio edition. I also found myself wanting to yell at the characters when they were being particularly dense or obtuse.
Such a wonderful audio edition. I only wish that Recorded Books had created an audio edition of the second book in this series - The Reluctant Duchess. That is the only flaw. We have the first (The Lost Heiress) and the third (Lady Unrivaled) books, but not the second book in the series.
I appreciated the clean language the good morals and an interesting story line. It did bog down a few times when I had difficulty keeping the multitude of characters and their relationships separate from one another. Also one has to have an innate knowledge of all the titles of English nobility in order to keep titles straight. But otherwise the story and narration were excellent.
Love roseanna white's books. Thrilling tales full of adventure and happy endings. And don't get me started on the voice of Liz Pearce. She could make angels cry. Absolutely beautiful accents!
