Forced to sell his estates and abandon his tenants if he does not marry a wealthy, respectable woman, Matthew turns to Lady Jennette to help him find a suitable wife. But sharing such close quarters only re-ignites an all-consuming desire neither can resist--even as every shadow of the past threatens to tear them apart…

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Christie Kelley has delivered yet another captivating and enjoyable Regency romance with her story of an accident, one person's sacrifice, one person's guilt and the devastating consequences that followed. Matthew and Jennette's story is heartbreaking as fate had intervened and robbed them of furthering the mutual attraction they once shared and so, for 5 years, they remained apart..... but fate hadn't quite finished with them!
This listen made me want to skip to the end to make sure Matthew and Jennette finally got their long awaited HEA but I had to remind myself that it's the riveting romantic journey that counts - so I trusted in the talented author to take me on that journey...... and what a journey it was. It was filled with secrets, misunderstandings galore, sizzling chemistry, lust, passion, sex, a couple of nasty characters plotting and planning on revenge, other great secondary characters, some "Oh no!, Ahhh yes", "Mmmm" moments and then, eventually, and eventfully, a "sigh" as I was thankfully rewarded with my long awaited romantic HEA.
Although there are characters and passing comments about events from the previous book, this could easily be a stand-alone listen.
Worth a credit? I'm loving this series and have just downloaded the remaining 3 books in the series so that's a YES and if you too enjoy a good historical romance then I hope you will think so too.
This was a very good story. I totally enjoyed it along with the first book. Great strong characters, some hot and steamy sex, (not too x rated, just good enough) The secondary characters are all wonderful too.
Note: there are 5 books in this series they are not all listed together in audible but they are all available.
Book 1: Every Night I'm Yours
Book 2: Every Time We Kiss
Book 3: Something Scandalous
Book 4: Scandal of The Season (Not listed with the series but is available)
Book 5: One Night Scandal
Narration is good if you listen to it on 1.25 speed otherwise its just too slow.
Credit Worthy? Yes.
