She never wanted him.
Ruined by scandal, Claudia Akford survived years of marriage to a cruel brute. Widowed, she is determined to regain her standing in society, but Lord Shillington personifies temptation. Kind and gentle, yet masculine and sinfully handsome, he would make the perfect lover, but he wants more than she is willing to give.
He needed her.
While Henry Shillington knows a little of the beautiful but notorious Lady Claudia Akford, he is struck by her kindhearted, accomplished, and witty demeanor. The more time he spends in her company, the more he dreams of a future with her. But the lady resists his honorable overtures, and a mistress will never do for him.
Can two wary people overcome past hurts, an old scandal, and social strictures to embrace true love?

Amanda Mariel just keeps getting better. This is another great addition to the series. The story is fun, entertaining and flows wonderfully! I love that Lady Grace is meddling again. She is a favorite character for me from this series!! Henry is so proper and noble! And poor Claudia can't catch a break! Great read or listen!
Yes, I would recommend this book to any of my friends who like sweet, historical romance.
The story is a nice romance but I think I would have liked a bit more drama in the story or for there to be a bit of suspense or intrigue.
At just over 4 hours long, the story makes for perfect listening if you want to complete a story in one go.
Yes, the narration for the story was good and easy to listen to.
I received a copy in exchange for my honest review.
