In 1820s England, Sarah Eckersley, the daughter of the late rector in Bedsforshire, has lost her father, been forced to move from her home, and is doggedly pursued by the loathsome Lord Dunbridge. Her only course of action is to become a renowned courtesan. And Jarrod Shepherdston is just the man to become Sarah's first lover. For Jarrod, who's taken great pains to avoid marriage his entire life, the offer is quite tempting. But Sarah's plot works so well that Jarrod begins to wonder just what he could be missing.

"Another superbly sexy treat that is perfect for readers who like their love stories leavened with a lavish dash of wit and a discreet hint of intrigue." (Booklist)
I loved all 3 books in this series. All 3 men were a handful but really romantic with the right lady to bring out their true character. The narrator is a little weird constantly making sucking noises but you get used to it (beleive it or not) and it shouldn't sway you from the listen. The voices are great and identifiable threw out the novels. The cover and excert about the book are not enticing as they should be. I am hoping that there are more coming from the Free Fellows League (in audio) since more men joined the league through-out the series and the 3rd was a kind of cliff hanger. The men in the league (formed when they were children) are all very different but have stuck together as friends over the years and are always there for one another. Ms. Lee did a great job with the keeping of the times and you will enjoy a "More Grandious but somehow simpilar" time in our history. The steamy scences are very nice.
I couldn't finish. I suspect the story would have been good, but I couldn't tolerate the sucking sounds the narrator makes while reading. She has a good voice. I don't know if there was poor editing or what. I strongly suggest you don't waste your credit.
