Bartholomew Yancy never expected to inherit an English earldom and had no intention of marrying. Now, the Earl of Ramsbury and last in his line, he's obligated to resign his position as England's War Secretary, find a wife, and produce an heir. Only one woman holds the least appeal: Isobel Ferguson, an exquisite Scotswoman. Brought to Scotland to mediate between feuding clans, he doggedly woos her.

I really enjoyed listening to this story. I was so glad to get Yancy's story. Isabel and Yancy make an perfect couple but they are both stubborn and headstrong. This story was filled with twists and danger and triumph. I loved the story and can not recommend it enough! I would definitely recommend it!

Not a day has gone by that Ewan McTavish, the Viscount Sethwick, hasn't dreamed of the beauty he danced with two years ago. He's determined to win her heart and make her his own. Heiress Yvette Stapleton is certain of one thing: marriage is risky and, therefore, to be avoided. At first, she doesn't recognize the dangerously handsome man who rescues her from assailants on London's docks, but Lord Sethwick's passionate kisses soon have her reconsidering her cynical views on matrimony.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this set. There were a great group of historical romances that were interconnected but stood alone. I loved each couples story.

Which character – as performed by Virginia Ferguson – was your favorite?

I can't pick just one, she does the voices so well!

This book took me on a roller coaster of a ride. James and Hannah did not have it easy! There was drama, lust, danger, steam, and some scary situations. I would definitely recommend this book! It was a great listen, the narrator did amazing with the voices of the different characters. There were a few times that I was super frustrated with Hannah and James and wanted to shake them and just make them talk, but it was worth it in the end.

I really enjoyed this book so much I couldn't stop listening. The story was sweet and it pulled me in. I enjoyed the narration and the voices for each character. I really liked the budding relationship between Cordelia and Timothy. My only complaint is I didn't want it to end since I was so wrapped up in their world!
