Lady Olympia Wherlocke has the gift of foresight. When Lady Agatha Mallam asks Olympia to locate her brother so he can rescue her from an arranged marriage, she knows exactly where to find Lord Brant Mallam, Earl of Fieldgate. What happens next is something she never envisioned. Since his betrothed died, Lord Brant Mallam has drowned his sorrow with wine and women. His dissolute ways have only emboldened his calculating mother. But with the help of the enchanting Olympia, he concocts a daring plan to end his mother's devious designs for his sister.
While each step in their bold scheme works to perfection, the sins of the past could unravel a growing desire that neither Olympia nor Brant can control.

I thought this was an enjoyable series of books. Of course, I am a fan of Howell! The first two didn't weave together much, but they were good stories. However, as the series went, the stories became more entwined. Characters were likable and easy too become involved in. I also like this narrator!
The book started with what could have been a great story and as quickly turned completely flat. I felt little to no urges, nor found any bouts of excitement at the thought of getting back to the book after every pause or break. The only excitement, I admit, was to get the experience over with by fast forward listening through parts. The story was not at all gripping and I found myself wondering what type of listener actually gave this 4-5 stars. My opinion? Don’t waist your credit on this book. Move on.
Lady Letitia Mallam was the most evil biotch I've ever read about. An author never had me hating a villain so much! And Minden was so crazy from the "pox" he actually believed that "bedding" the virgin Agatha would cure him? Laughable. And he was utterly disgusting, too.I absolutely loved Brant and Olympia. Her son Ilar was pretty talented when it came to the bad guys. I really like Thomas and Henry, really sweet boys. Even the street urchins were nice kids.This had some nice sex scenes that were nicely written.Overall, a really good book. I'm off to read number 6 now.
As to the narrator: Wonderful with the voices and that's what I care about: men sounding like men! But she really could put a bit of emotion in her reading, as I've said before. She really doesn't laugh or cry or yell or mutter like the book says and that really is important to some listeners. She does the voices so well that if she added emotions to her reading she'd be a 10 star narrator.
This Series makes you want to get to know each Character so you can try to gauge who you would want to read about next. I really hope this author has more books in this series. I absolutely loved this book. Lady Olympia so commanding but in such a loving and inspirational way. I love her story and the way she falls in love. She has a strong love of her family and takes such good care of them
This book ranks 9 out of 10 because of the narrator. She is not bad but there are others that I like a lot better.
I like the final closing of the 2nd book about Faith. Learning to let go of circumstances or people you can't change. Letting go of the past and hold on to the future.
The different voices of the characters.
