She's loved him all her life.
Lady Elise Halden knows how to get a horse to bend to her will with a gentle touch and subtle coaxing. But she's learning that bringing the new Earl of Camden to heel is nothing like training a horse. If she has any hope of reining in the Earl's affections, she will need a plan. With help from her friend Lady Beverly, and her sister-in-law the Duchess, Elise sets out to win her indifferent Earl's heart.
He's admired her from a respectable distance.
As young men, Michael Brightman and his best friend swore sisters were off limits. This promise was made solely to protect his own sisters from his friend's charming, rakehell ways. The Duke of Caversham's little sister was always a precocious minx to avoid, till one day Michael realizes Lady Elise is all grown up and the things he wants to do with the lady are surely going to upset the friendship with her brother.
Together they discover that physical evidence doesn't equate truth, and trusting the heart is sometimes the hardest lesson to learn.

I would recommend it, highly, especially if Book One was previously read. The storyline was excellent and well thought out and also well written and the choice of the narrators was brilliant.
I would compare it to Book one of the Caversham Chronicles as it was the absolutely delicious complement to the continued saga.
Lady Elise was the favourite performance by Victoria,. She really portrayed who Elise really is by her voice rendition of Elise's various moods and forthright and outspoken ways. The sternness and seemingly unbending nature of Lord Caversham was forcefully and perfectly depicted by Dennis. Marvelous performances by the tandem efforts of these two narrators.
Yes. But 11 1/2 hrs had to be broken up into manageable portions. The storyline was enthralling and moved along very briskly. I enjoyed the romance.
The continuation of the story about Lia and Ren and their family was wonderful. The love of the feisty Lady Elise for Michael was heartwarming and progressed from her first sighting of him at 10 years old. Michael was realizing that Elise had changed and his regard for her was developing. But a promise was preventing his courting her until certain information precipitated a release of the promise made as a younger man to his best friend. His subsequent behaviour was reprehensible and he deserved to be submitted to serious grovelling on his part. Beverly was a charming addition to the plot and was a dramatic foil to the incorrigible Elise, who needed a confidante for her schemes. Sandy, this was a really fitting second book, to the first book and I'm anticipating the enjoyment of the other books.
