From New York Times best-selling author Courtney Milan....
A perpetual wallflower destined for spinsterhood, Lady Elaine Warren is resigned to her position in society. So when Evan Carlton, the powerful, popular Earl of Westfeld, singles her out upon his return to England, she knows what it means. Her former tormenter is up to his old tricks, and she's his intended victim. This time, though, the earl is going to discover that wallflowers can fight back.
Evan has come to regret his cruel, callow past. At first, he only wants to make up for past wrongs. But when Elaine throws his initial apology in his face, he finds himself wanting more. And this time, what torments him might be love....

Historical romance junkie. Who doesn't love romance?
I wish this book were longer, I really enjoyed it. The flow was nice and the writing superb.
I love Simon Prebbles voice! I've listened to other books by him and have always enjoyed them. Even when he does female voices I believe it. The men's voices and inflection's are excellent.
Love, regret and redemption
When the main character confesses his love to lady Elaine in public
Yes, I've listened to it many times
For being relatively short it's a wonderfully touching story
If you're into Historical/Romance then you can't get much better than the partnership of Courtney Milan and Simon Prebble.
Another short novella that will have you empathising with both the leading male and female characters because from their first meeting in their teens the attraction was there but then it went badly from then on when Evan tormented and bullied Elaine to cover up his true feelings, but years later can he make amends and will she ever forgive him. What an emotional roller coaster of feelings and desires - it was yummy.
Worth a credit? It's on sale at the moment so I would suggest you buy it while it's cheap.
Depth of characters, storyline, narrator
Can't think of any
You could really tell difference in character voices, depth of emotion through voice, correct accent
Scene with her mother
Great book, narrator makes A Great Difference!!! I also bought A Governess Affair, loved the print book. Courtney Milan is great, but could not stand narration.. So returned that one. But Simon Prebble makes a difference.
Courtney Milan is a terrific writer. This short story is well done, and what a wonderful surprise to have Simon Prebble as the narrator. He is my favorite.
