Career diplomat Alec Halsey has been elevated to a marquessate he doesn't want. His lover has decided she won't marry him after all. What's more, the suspicion that he murdered his brother still lingers in London drawing rooms. So returning to London after seven months' seclusion may have been a mistake.

1740s France and England - the age of hedonism and enlightenment. Renard, Duke of Roxton, is wealthy beyond measure. Arrogant and self assured, his heart remains his own. Optimistic and headstrong, Antonia Moran is determined to flee the Court of Versailles with the Duke's unwitting assistance. Roxton is an unlikely savior - arrogant, promiscuous, and sinister. Antonia's unquestioning belief in him may just be his salvation, and her undoing.

These are letters from the private correspondence of the Roxton family, spanning 1743-1777, with extracts from the diaries of Antonia, fifth duchess of Roxton and seventh duchess of Kinross. They include Roxton's last letter to Antonia. This volume complements the first three books of the award-winning Roxton Family Saga: Noble Satyr, Midnight Marriage, and Autumn Duchess, with a foreword by a late-Victorian descendant, Alice-Victoria, 10th duchess of Roxton.

What made the experience of listening to Switched the most enjoyable?

The voice was great, I read the book some time ago and having it read to me brought the book to life again.

What did you like best about this story?

the expressions in the narrators voice

Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I have not but I feel that I may get a book because of her if it is the type of books that I read.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Some parts of the book are sad as the main character learns and starts to grow.

Any additional comments?

This is only the first of three books and I can't wait to listen to the rest of the series in audio.
