Publisher's Summary

Forced to marry an American heiress to save his family, Graeme Parr, Earl of Montclair, vowed their marriage would be in name only. Abigail Price thought handsome, aristocratic Graeme was her knight in shining armor, rescuing her from her overbearing father. But when she was spurned by her husband on their wedding night, Abigail fled home to New York.

Now, years later, Abigail has returned. But this sophisticated, alluring woman is not the drab girl Graeme remembers. Appalled by her bold American ways but drawn to her beauty, Graeme follows her on a merry chase through London's elegant ballrooms to its dockside taverns - why is his wife back? What could she want of him now?

Torn between desire and suspicion, Graeme fears that Abby, like her unprincipled father, has a devious plan to ruin him. But is Abigail's true desire Graeme's destruction...or winning his love at last?

Narrator couldn’t save this one

This was one of the most ridiculous books I’ve tried to listen to. I thought it would be cute-a Georgette Hayer-NOT. It is hours and hours of two people going around and around and around. He humiliated her on their wedding night and they have lived apart for 10 years and she pretends she doesn’t want him and he tried to avoid her. They are both ridiculous and the plot is silly. I’m mad at myself for wasting three hours of my life. The narrator was above average and the reason I listened as long as I did.

Good; not great

This was a very nice book. I liked the characters, the setting, and the plot. It did not, however, have the depth that I have come to prefer in HR.

Gildart Jackson narrated, and he is quite good. He is a bit weak on female characters, but his males are simply delicious.

I enjoyed the book, but I'm not likely to listen again.

Should be a novella

I liked the mystery part of the plot, but the two main characters were so whiny and insecure. They each had to internally debate and review and mull over each little interaction and then, of course, come up with a stupid and wrongheaded deduction. I would have edited this book by at least half. I am surprised that I didn't strain my eyes by rolling them so much!

Great story and great narrator.

Gildart Jackson is the first narrator I've found whose American accent didn't leave me wanting to rip my ears off. Yes, that's dramatic but holy hell, some narrators think we sound atrocious. I like the story and it only seemed a bit too slow on occasion...I found the writing to be reminiscent of Georgette Heyer and she is one of my favorite authors so I have few complaints. This was a really great book.
