Publisher's Summary

Beautiful, titled, and wealthy to boot, Lady Lydia Beaufort was expected to have a spectacular London Season. There was just one problem; the eccentric daughter of the Earl of Galway had no intention of becoming the ton’s darling. Especially if it involved humoring the awful herds of fortune hunters and greedy second sons, intent on making her their bride.

All Lydia wanted was to be left alone in peace, to read her beloved Lord Byron. That is, until an incorrigible rogue of a Marquess burst into her life and turned all her ideas about love upside down.

Charming, congenial, and ever so handsome, Gabriel Livingstone, Marquess of Sutherland could have his pick of any of the season’s debutantes, but the only rose he longed to pluck was the very thorny Lady Beaufort. Just when he thinks he might finally have won her heart, fate, in the form of an Italian Count, a mischievous Gypsy, and a political assassination plot, gets in his way. 

Can the mismatched pair find their way through all the obstacles life, and London, has to offer to find love?

Historical romance done really well

I have never listened to a historical romance and now I regret that I didn't listen sooner. I loved the narration and the story was done really well. The characters were intriguing and kept me listening.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Fun, short romance

It's been a while since I have read a romance novel, so when the opportunity to listen to this one came along, I took it. I listened to this on a long road trip. It's a fun little book. Fast paced and kept my interest. Fairly clean, not female pornography like man romance novels have become. The only part that bothered me was calling the main character Lady Beaumont. He title is honorary through being the daughter of the Earl, so she would be known as Lady Lydia. She would only be known as Lady Beaumont if she was married to a Lord Beaumont. Easy mistake to make, though! I received a complimentary copy of this book for an unbiased review. The review is my honest opinion.

A pleasant, lighthearted story

This was a pleasant and lighthearted story.
The characters had a very cute 'friends' relationship before they realized they were in love with each other. It was a lot of fun especially as unexpected competition from an Italian Count complicated the matter further.
I found it refreshing that Lady Lydia grew up in Ireland and she was well versed in Irish myths and legends.
This was a good and very enjoyable story. I will be buying more books by the author.

The narration was very good although I was disappointed that more care wasn't taken with finding the correct pronunciation for the Irish words used in the story. 'Fianna' and 'mac tíre' can be easily found using Google or YouTube.
There were a few strange pronunciations of English words as well which I found distracting e.g. 'valiantly,' 'Gallic' (as in Gallic shrug) and imbecile.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy provided free of charge at my own request.
