Young. Ravishing. Exquisitely marriageable. From the moment he spies Lady Morgan Bedwyn across the glittering ballroom, Gervase Ashford, Earl of Rosthorn, knows he has found the perfect instrument of his revenge. But wedlock is not on the mind of the continent's most notorious rake. Nor is it of interest to the fiercely independent Lady Morgan herself...until one night of shocking intimacy erupts in a scandal that could make Gervase's vengeance all the sweeter. There is only one thing standing in his way: Morgan, who has achieved the impossible - she's melted his coolly guarded heart. For Gervase, only the marriage bed will do, but Morgan simply will not have him. Thus begins a sizzling courtship where two wary hearts are about to be undone by the most scandalous passion of all: glorious, all-consuming love. Contains mature themes.

When the truth was told as to why Gervase was exiled.
enjoyed the whole book.
I'm glad that this book was read by Rosalyn Landor as she is my favorite narrator.
I love this book! I am so glad that Audible is bringing the all to life through the wonderful talent of Rosalyn Landor. The combination of her narration and Mrs. Balogh's writing is magical.
Mary Balogh is one of my favorite authors! I have loved all of the books I've read by her, and this book is no exception.
I've enjoyed the Bedwyn family series. This story is about the youngest girl, Lady Morgan.
Lady Morgan Bedwyn has come to Brussels with her best friend and her family to see their son/brother off to war against the escaped Bony. Gervase meets Lady Bedwyn at a Celebration Ball to give the military a big send off. Upon learning who she is Gervase develops a plan to use her to spite her brother, Boecastle (sp), the Duke. Unjustly accused of wrongdoing and banished from England 9 years ago by his father, Gervase Ashford, Earl of Rosthorn sees a means to avenge himself against his accuser.
The next few days brings about changes as the war rages and strands them in Brussels.
Rosalyn Landor gives an excellent performance.
Well worth a credit.
