    "What a lovely scandal."

    Setting: Moxley, and London, England 1817
    Genre: Romance
    Narration: Susan Duerden gives a good performance. She has very good range in giving voice to the different characters.
    The characters, even the minor ones, are well-written. Lady Rebecca is a lovely young woman being held, pretty much, prisoner by her greedy aunt and uncle. Daniel is the wastrel heir of the Marquess of Wolvington. They meet at the Kingsborough Ball and Daniel decides that she is the answer to his dilemma - he needs to marry by the end of the Season. Rebecca wants to avoid being married off to an elderly, lecherous peer, and Daniel might be a preferable option. The repartee is amusing and the plot is compelling enough that I couldn't put it down. I like that the characters, especially Daniel, grow during the course of the book. It was, overall, a satisfying use of my time.
    Worth the credit? Definitely.

    "A KISS THEY NEVER REGRETTED"

    After 2 years of virtual imprisonment Lady Rebecca, in desperation, has decided to take her future in her own hands and sneaked out of her greedy Guardian's Castle to attend the Kingsborough Masked Ball where she hopes to meet someone eager to marry her - and quickly before time runs out and she's forced to marry an old lecherous Duke. Daniel is in line to become the next Marquis of Wolvington but, at the moment, he has been given an ultimatum by his Guardians who are fed up with his Rakish carefree ways and they want to see him married and have given him just one month to do so before cutting him off.

    Daniel becomes transfixed by Rebecca, her wit, charm and exotic beauty all help, but so too does the fact that she is equally desperate to marry. There's instant attraction and one kiss seals the deal but Rebecca has trust issues and really longs for fidelity and even love but, as Daniel is a renowned Rake, she doubts she'll ever find that and is prepared to settle for friendship but his Rakish ways may just be a facade Daniel has put up to hide all his vulnerabilities.

    Rebecca has greedy selfish Guardians who add to the lovers problems, there's a speedy scandalous escape, attempted murder (twice), a clever trap and a romance that quickly went from mere friendship to love. Daniel had to slowly seduce his new wife which results in a tender (not too descriptive) sex scene and, as the H/H had to overcome many obstacles, they bask in a sweet, honest relationship between two people who compliment each other by sharing a sense of humor, actually talk to each other about everything and so the hopes and dreams for their future eventually give them their longed for HEA ending.

    Worth a credit? A far fetched yet charming and enjoyable Regency romance with all books in the series set around the events that happened during a Masked Ball, with plot twists and likeable characters - no, it's not the best historical romance I've ever listened to, but still a creditworthy addition to my Library.
