Severin of Langthorne returns to his family's estate to find his family and land in ruin. His father and brother dead, his mother demented, he is the new Baron Louges, an empty title due to the destruction of his world.
Meanwhile the Earl of Oxborough, Fawke of Trent, has selected Severin to marry his daughter and only heir. While his new place in society seems enviable, his new wife detests him. The ill-matched marriage, coupled with "Rosehaven", the mysterious property in which they live, presents a challenge once again for Severin.

I am quiet and love being comfortable. I love curling up in a corner either reading or listening to a nice romantic book.
I have read some of the other reviews and I can't seem to understand why everyone is getting their panties in a bunch! Like some of the other reviewers wrote, look at the timeline to which the book is coming from. It was a very different lifestyle to where we are today. In that life, us females were not given a choice on husbands, they were chosen and demanded that we had to marry that person. Don't do it and you are either chastised, beaten or disowned by your family. Anyhow, I actually had a great time listening to this book as with all the other Song Series and Catherine is one of my favorite authors. I can't wait for another and hope that she have some other lost soul (men) that needs a strong woman to stand by him and put him in his place.
I first read Rosehaven when i was a young teenager. Ive always taken to revisiting Hastings and Severin once a year. Now with audible i can listen while i sew or knit. I found the voice actress perfect. I absolutely loved every minute. I highly recommend it. Ill surely be listening to it again one day.
