For lovely young Miss Patricia Patterson, life seemed a delightful dream - until the specter of her guardian, Lord Charles Gaunt, cast a shadow over her carefree days of idleness and enchanting evenings of dazzling balls and delicious flirtations. Lord Charles demanded she act the part of a proper and perfectly boring young miss. Even worse, he insisted she devote her waking hours to cultivating her mind rather than captivating her swarm of admirers. Thus, the battle was joined - between the handsome, arrogant aristocrat who had Patricia in his lawful power, and Patricia, who vowed to turn this hateful tyrant into her lovelorn slave.

I have listened to many audiobooks. M.C. Beaton's are fun, humorous and wonderful escape from the sometimes weariness of our daily lives. This is one of my favorites.The characterization stands out with the very engaging Patricia and Lord Charles. The excellent story keeps moving and is a bit different from many of the author's other titles. I also really appreciated the narration. Alison Larkin performed the book to perfection. She captured Patricia beautifully. I liked her pace, energy, charm, and the quality of her voice.We all know how the book will end, with the lovers together at last, but it is the journey that keeps us listening! Bravo.
