Publisher's Summary

Miss Melpomene Rand's only refuge from a life of monotony and cruelty is the extensive library left to her by her grandfather. The fantastic notions and romantic heroes contained in those books are the only thing that distracts her from the abuse of her adopted family.

But then a mysterious stranger, the Earl of Austell, finds they have a mutual malady of boredom, and he endeavors to rescue them both.

Good

This story was okay but if feels like it did not have enough meat on the bone. All the characters were a little too flighty to be able "fall in love at first glance".

What really brought the story to life was Stevie Zimmerman's excellent performance with the narration. She is actually why I took notice of this book.
