In the second novel of Maya Rodale's enchanting Keeping Up with the Cavendishes series, an American heiress finds her reputation - and heart - in danger when she travels to London and meets a wickedly tempting rake.
Lady Amelia is fed up with being a proper lady and wishes to explore London, so one night she escapes...and finds herself in the company of one Alistair Finlay-Jones. He's been ordered by his uncle to wed one of the American girls. How lucky, then, that one of them stumbles right into his arms!
Alistair and Amelia have one perfect day to explore London, from Astley's Amphitheater to Vauxhall Gardens. Inevitably they end up falling in love and making love. If anyone finds out, she will be ruined, but he will win everything he's ever wanted.
When Amelia finds out Alistair has been ordered to marry her, he must woo her and win back the angry American girl. But with the threat of scandals - plural - looming...will he ever catch up to the woman he loves?

This was a decent story, not my favorite Maya Rodale book. I am a big Maya Rodale fan too.
I liked Amelia and Alistair together. They made a good couple and there was some good witty banter between the two on their excursions together. They did have some good chemistry together. There was a couple nicely written sex scenes.
The story line and plot was okay. There was no mystery, not too much angst, no villains. It was more about the scandal they caused. Like I said it was a decent story but not a favorite by no means. The dialogue was great, there was lots of it!
As for the narration, Saskia Maarleveld did a great job. I really like her. All the men sound like men, everyone gets a voice and she has a very nice reading voice to listen to.
How can one NOT love the Cavendish's?
Maya Rosales delivers another hit in her usual style of romance and trouble.
Narrator: Excellent performance!
Heat Factor: Luke warm.... barely.
Liked the story but very predictable. the person reading the book was just a little breathy for my taste.
