Anne Brotherton is sick and tired of being an heiress. She cannot bring herself to marry a fortune hunter. Why can't men like her for her sharp mind and kind heart rather than her impressive dowry? Just when she is about to bow to her fate as a confirmed spinster, she meets the handsome and charming Marcus Lithgow.
It's been years since Marcus set foot in England - why toy with the ton when he can fleece wealthy fools in Paris and Rome? Yet everything changes when he inherits a ramshackle estate. Marcus' first and only chance at a respectable life needs funding...the kind Anne Brotherton can provide. Such a wallflower should be ripe for the picking. So why does Marcus feel like he's the one hanging by a thread?
She nearly falls for Marcus' smooth seduction. But when Anne realizes she's being strung along, a lust for payback empowers her like never before. Two can play the game of deception. The game of love, however, has its own rules....
Contains mature themes.

"Driven by dialogue and well-motivated, smart characters, here's a romance to spark both imaginations and emotions." (RT Book Reviews)
I did not even finish this book. The story may have been good but the narrator was terrible. She sounded as if she were robotic and she would go in and out of her British accent. Don't waste your money if you're looking for a good book to listen to. This is not it! I feel sorry for the author just because her book was so slaughtered by the narrator.
I had to return this book after slogging through less than an hour. The narrator is SO awful I just couldn't even follow the story with such a dreadful narration. Her reading reminded me of a French student who is struggling to pronounce the foreign words and doesn't have a clue what the meaning of those words is! I really like Miranda Neville's books and I will try reading a printed copy of this one but I just can't stand to listen to this.
