After waiting five years for her fiancé to return from the war and marry her, Roxana Langley has been jilted! She may have longed for excitement, but this was not what she had in mind....
Who could possibly throw over a woman as beautiful and vivacious as Roxana? Certainly not Alex Winslow, the Earl of Ayersley, who has spent years trying in vain to forget his unrequited love. When he learns she's been abandoned by her cad of a fiancé, he finds himself offering a shoulder for her to cry on. Comfort soon turns into a passionate kiss—and scandal when they are caught in an embrace.
Only one thing will save Roxana from certain ruination: marriage to the earl. The match may save her reputation, but responsible, tongue-tied Ayersley is a far cry from her dashing former fiancé. She's convinced Ayersley is merely doing his duty...while he's sure Roxana is still in love with another man. Are they trading one disaster for another?

The characters were well plotted, and you can't go wrong with Rosalyn Landor reading, but this was 10 hours of angst. At some point I wanted to reach out and shake the characters begging them to get their act together.
Audio-fiction ADDICT !
This book was so so bland ! Lacks excitement, good story line, and good dialogue ! The story in theory was good but the execution was done poorly. The interactions between the main characters were unsatisfactory. At the end of the book I had to pass forward as it was dragging on and on . But Rosalyn Landor had saved this book. Because of her outstanding performance I have listened and finished the book.
I didn't feel like I wasted my time with this book, but it wasn't my favorite. The book seems to follow the romance typical recipe in book development. I enjoyed it - would even listen to it again, however it just left me feeling - Ehh.
