Lord Trey Worthington isn’t about to give his heart to a woman. He does not want a marriage like his parents. But when his mother brings in a childhood acquaintance into the home to sponsor into society, Trey has to get Miss Faraday trained properly. The more he gets to know Judith, the more he yearns for something he doesn’t dare reach for. Judith is after a faithful husband - something Trey has been convinced most of his life he’ll never become.
Judith Faraday is only after one thing - to marry her Naval Officer and enjoy a life full of love. She’s doubtful her dream will ever come true while living as the ward to the dowager duchess. However, the longer Judith is with the dowager’s son Trey, an attraction blossoms. Judith now wonders if God has different plans for her life, because Trey doesn’t believe in the sanctity of marriage - the very thing Judith cannot do without.

I love reading! I also love looking for mistakes in what I'm reading.
I would. This was a really cute story and kept my attention the whole time I listened. Although there were no surprises, it left me wanting more.
I would have to go with the Dowager. The fact that she was tricking Trey and Judith into thinking she was ill, all because she had wanted the two of them to get together. Priceless.
The narrator seems to be growing on me. While I still have issues with her randomly pausing while speaking, the variety of accents she does...amazing! She has her own unique way of speaking for each character. When I first started audiobooks, I thought it would be better have at least two narrators (woman for female characters/man for male characters), this narrator does a great job to where I almost forget that it's a male character speaking.
Yes, I wanted to listen to it in a single sitting. Of course, I wasn't able to. But any free time I had I was listening to find out what would happen to the characters.
I'm definitely interested in reading/listening to more stories by Mary Higgins.
Yes, this is quite entertaining read for anyone who enjoys historical romance.
Trey was probably my favorite character, he had been through hell and back but was still willing to fight for love that he wasn't sure he wanted.
Our heroine, simply for the fact that it's the main female lead and much more believable. The narrator did an excellent job pulling at the end of the story but as my first audio book I still struggle hearing a more feminine voice for males.
Yes when Trey finally admitted his need for her love.
I was gifted a copy of this book by the narrator Valerie, she did an amazing job bringing the story to life. this is an action packed historical romance, our heroine is left all alone after her parents are killed. and she then signed up for an arranged marriage, however she finds love from an unexpected source. I was surprised at how quickly I was drawn into the story, the author did a great job keeping you on your toes with the plot twists. Can't wait to read book 2.
The story along with the narration were appealing with lovable characters. I enjoyed the listen even more so as the story picked up its pace. Narrator Valerie Gilbert entertained me with her storytelling technique and wit. It gave the listen just that more sparkle. She had just the right amount of sarcasm and sass to Judith’s voice. As I listened I almost felt it was a satire on the silly traditions the ton lived by.
As childhood neighbors, Judith and Trey did not get on. Trey was a devilish young lad and played many tricks doing hurtful things to Judith which Judith remembered as an adult. She didn’t care to get to know Trey as an adult. Yet, through circumstances, she was obliged to, and being the humorous person she was, she spent her time ‘getting back’ at him unaware she encouraged his attentions.
Judith was a bit spoiled, quite independent, naïve, had a temper, yet possessed a great sense of humor. She didn’t want to have a Season, nor did she want the dowager to bring her out. All she wanted was to find her true love, Alex. The only person who knew about Alex was Trey. Trey had made her a promise. He would help find him if she allowed his mother to sponsor her for a season.
Both Lord Trey and Judith could not deny the attraction they held for each other. Judith was hoping for a kiss from him, and once she received it, the allure of the naval officer became less so and she started questioning whether she truly loved Alex, for he didn't make her feel the way Trey did.
I enjoyed the relationship Lord Trey had with Lord Dominick, his best friend. Lord Dominick was a very likeable rogue adding a lot to this story and surely will have a story of his own later in the series. Both Lord Trey and Lord Dominique weren’t interested in married life. They were men only interested in their rakish ways and freedom.
The shoe drops. Alex returns, full of surprises.
I will not try another book. The writing wasn't done well and the story was lacking depth.
