One title to change his life...
A disgraced son with a dark reputation, William Ferguson Avenel is content to live in exile in Scotland - until his father dies in the scandal of the Season, making him the new Duke of Rothwell and leaving him in charge of his young sisters. With rumors of insanity swirling around their family, the girls desperately need a chaperone. And he thinks he's found the lady for the job...until Rothwell discovers her dangerous secret life.
One chance to break the rules....
Lady Madeleine Vaillant may be the perfect chaperone, but she can't face her blighted future without making one glorious memory for herself. In disguise on a London stage, she finds all the adoration she never felt from the ton. But when she's nearly recognized, she will do anything to hide her identity - even make a devil's bargain with Rothwell, who saves her from discovery by claiming her as his mistress. She'll take the pleasure he offers - but Madeleine won't lose her heart in the bargain.
One season to fall in love...
Every stolen kiss could lead to discovery, and Rothwell's old enemies are determined to ruin them both. But as their dangerous passion ignites their hearts and threatens their futures, how can an heiress who dreams of freedom deny the duke who demands her love?

There comes a time when you have to choose between listening to audible or going to bed.
Well let me say this book was awesome, with a great Narrator. I was pleasantly surprised with the story line. Unlike many other books where the Heroine is 21 yrs old, this series is about women that are older and have passions for writing, acting ect... none of witch are acceptable passions for ladies of London in the 1800's. Great plot that held my attention. I listened in one sitting. Worth a credit? YES and I just started period novels! I will going to the next book in the series. I also love that all of the books in the series came out at the same time so no waiting!
This book surprised me. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.
It was entertaining. I liked the main characters but I admit some of the secondary ones confused me. I find this on occasion with audiobooks. It can be difficult to sort all the characters when you can't just look back a paragraph or two to see who's who.
The narration was quite good. I have the next book in my library already.
Skeptical at first, but found the book very enjoyable. It is definately worth a credit. Perhaps a bit unbelievable but held my interest. The narrator did an excellent job.
