Captain Xavier Grey's body is back amongst the beau monde, but his mind cannot break free from the horrors of war. His friends try to help him find peace. He knows he doesn't deserve it. Just like he doesn't deserve the attentions of the sultry bluestocking intent on seducing him into bed....
Spinster Jane Downing wants off the shelf and into the arms of a hot-blooded man. Specifically, the dark and dangerous Captain Grey. She may not be destined to be his wife, but nothing will stop her from being his mistress. She could quote classical Greek by the age of four. How hard can it be to learn the language of love?

Another great Ridley book. Always too short, though. Great narration.
I love Jane. I always love a Bluestocking. I hope the rest of the books in this series are released on audio soon.

I've been very pleased with Erica Ridley's books, most of which I've picked up for free or nearly nothing, making them amazing deals. This book was another pleasant surprise for me.
I want to talk about the audio, which I have very mixed feelings about. To start, I think that Stevie Zimmerman has a great narrating voice and style, and does a surprisingly competent male voice, despite her very high register. What I had a HUGE issue with was the recording quality. To be frank, it sounds like Stevie Zimmerman recorded this in her bathroom. The quality was pretty bad at parts, sounding either tinny or scratchy and unclear, and coming from listening to a professional recording to this was jarring.
The story was fun and easy. It isn't as complex as some other historical romances that I've read and loved, but it was entertaining without feeling frivolous or silly. It kept Erica Ridley on my list of author to watch, and I'll keep buying her books in the future.
