Publisher's Summary

Jack Lester has to find a bride....

But where can he find the perfect woman? She has to be attractive, kind, a good conversationalist...and most important, she has to accept him as he is: devilishly handsome, charming, and, as far as anyone knows, poor as a church mouse! If London society discovers his hidden wealth, he'll never find the right wife.

Jack's heart races when he first lays eyes on Sophie Winterton. She is everything he desires - and more - but he is caught in his own trap. Believing that Jack needs to marry into wealth, Sophie rejects all his advances, certain he would never marry a poor girl like her.

As they play out a game of cat and mouse, can Jack convince her that she is the woman he wants - and that he is the husband she deserves?

    "A little long"

    Although I enjoyed the characters, the story tended to get a little boring in parts.

    "Good story, but distracting narration!"

    As long as the plot & story is decent, I usually don't have a problem with the narrator, and I especially like Stephanie Laurens' romances. However, this audio was quite different! Jasicki has a nice voice for a woman, but her male voices are very irritating! I hung in there for the whole first half because the story was intriguing and I really wanted to follow the relationship between the main characters. However, Jack's voice was so unmanly that I was distracted from the romance and had to abandon it!!! That's very frustrating, since that's the whole reason why I bought the audio version! It would be much better with another narrator.

    "Good story"

    This narrator should not read these books. She's dull, a very poor actor and the fact that she pronounced "Ton" as ton as in a measure of weight, grated on my nerves ever time she said it. Most British narrators pronounce the word with a French accent.

    I forced myself to finish it because I enjoyed Jack Lester's attempts to win the lady of his dreams. If I see Elizabeth Jasicki's name again, I won't purchase the book.
