Since his return from war, the Duke of Ashbury's to-do list has been short and anything but sweet: brooding, glowering, menacing London ne'er-do-wells by night. Now there's a new item on the list. He needs an heir - which means he needs a wife. When Emma Gladstone, a vicar's daughter turned seamstress, appears in his library wearing a wedding gown, he decides on the spot that she'll do.

Divorce lawyer Victoria Slade has seen enough unhappy endings to swear off marriage forever. That doesn't mean she's opposed to casual dating - just not with her cocky new neighbor, who is as gorgeous and tempting as he is off-limits. But once she agrees to take on his sister's case, she's as determined to win as ever - even if that means teaming up with Ford....

The editors of audible recommended it and it was on sale. I really enjoyed the complexity of characters and the story. While I still love historical of all types, Julie James wrote a really good contemporary romance.

Helen and Winterborne were both interesting characters. this book had an interesting subplot that at first I thought was going to be very boring but then took a really interesting twist. LOVED the narrator!

The last man Judith Worth wants to see again is Christian Trent, the Marquess of Ashford - the man who spent summers at her family home, who kissed her one magical night...and then heartlessly ruined her father. But when a tricky business matter arises, he's the only one she can ask for help. With any luck, he'll engage a servant to take care of the matter, and she won't even have to talk with him.

Loves the romance! Her books are romantic and so much about character development. Rhis narrator does a lovely job with female voices, which I think is rare in a male narrator! Couldn't quit listening.

Scotland, 1745: The youngest son of the scandalous Mackenzie family, Malcolm is considered too wild to tame...until he meets a woman who is too unattainable to resist. Lady Mary Lennox is English, her father highly loyal to the king, and promised to another Englishman. But despite it being forbidden to speak to Malcolm, Lady Mary is fascinated by the Scotsman, and stolen moments together lead to a passion greater than she'd ever dreamed of finding.

The hero and heroine are both strong figures and I enjoyed their story. Story shows a very dark side of many types of people. It was well written and the narrator was very good. Just a bit too dark for me currently. I enjoyed Autumn Countess by same author. Very intelligent writing no matter historical romance or historical mystery romance.

After a duke's betrayal, the resilient Sarah Forrester reinvents herself as the Golden Lady: Society's leading light, the beautiful and witty life of the party. It's all a facade of course - one that protects her from another intimate disloyalty. When her old friend, Lieutenant Jackson Fletcher, returns to London, he is determined to rediscover the true and trusting Sarah he once knew. It'll take more than a kiss and a promise. It might even call for an innocent and necessary deception.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

If you like the story to be drawn out for a LONG time.

Would you ever listen to anything by Kate Noble again?

Probably not. This is my 2nd try, and it isn't emotionally compelling enough. Too much repetition.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alison Larkin?

She wasn't the problem.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The characters were strong. The plot just needed to move more. I couldn't get past the half way point. It was just too slow.
