A poor widow, Lady Charlotte Collins returns to England eager to take her place in the ton, only to find herself shunned by all. Her one choice is to marry a groom with wealth, a title, and good looks, but Alasdair McGregor cruelly refuses to be the answer to her problems.
In fact, she is forced by Dare's obstinacy to take extreme action: the faulty codpiece that leads to their marriage, the wedding that is literally a circus. But nothing can stand between Charlotte and what she wants most: the love of her husband.

I love losing myself in books of any kind
I love reading and listening to books.... there is nothing like using your imagination. I will say when listening to a book the image changes to match the voice of the narrator
The balance between humor and drama... I also love the way the hero understands the heroine. Though at a glance Charlotte seems superficial and self-center she has a deep loyalty with those she loves and is somewhat vulnerable, which Alasdair understands.
This book was the equivalent of watching a very superficial spoiled brat grow up - annoying and not charming. I will admit by the very end of the book I liked Charlotte better, but spending 75-80% of the book disliking the main character is not fun. Also the comic device of malapropisms grew tiresome after awhile. Alison Larkin's performance was probably the only thing that kept me going till the end. This was a sad disappointment after Noble Intentions.
funny lighthearted Entertaining
the wacky lead character
I don't usually laugh while reading but this book made me laugh out loud. I enjoyed this book and will listen again
This book can only be recommended if you enjoy a heroine that is an egocentric, shallow and generally stupid. While I have enjoyed many of Katie MacAllisters books, this one just annoyed me. I don't know if I want to waste another credit on the next book in the series.
