Publisher's Summary

The richest bachelor in England plays matchmaker…for an heiress he wants for himself! 

For beautiful, witty Lavinia Gray, there’s only one thing worse than having to ask the appalling Parth Sterling to marry her: being turned down by him.

Now the richest bachelor in England, Parth is not about to marry a woman as reckless and fashion-obsessed as Lavinia; he’s chosen a far more suitable bride. 

But when he learns of Lavinia's desperate circumstances, he offers to find her a husband. Even better, he’ll find her a prince.

As usual, there’s no problem Parth can’t fix. But the more time he spends with the beguiling Lavinia, the more he finds himself wondering…

Why does the woman who’s completely wrong feel so right in his arms?

Another fabulous Eloisa James book!!

I loved it!! The Wildes are such fun!! Parth and Lavinia have a rocky road, but it's so fun to hear their witty responses to each other.

Dull

No real excitement. Too long for the short storyline. Way too much time spent on clothing info people from this generation don’t understand and don’t particularly care.

Somehow I was disappointed......

Since I tend to carry all the audio books of this author, I can say accurately that I personally was disappointed with this book. I do like the narrator, so that is not the problem. Somehow I failed to catch the barbed riposte, or perhaps the scintillating badinage slipped by me. Anyway, I was disappointed!

Wonderfully Wilde!

From the moment they appeared in the first book, I wanted this story. It did not disappoint. Susan Duerden delivered a great audio reading and as always, Eloisa James nailed it. Loved it!

Perfect, had everything I love in a period romance novel!!!

This was a GREAT series and I encourage you to give it a try. I am looking forward to Betsy and Jeremy story. A big beautiful family with imperfections, had some sizzle, sauce, and flaws and a lot of love. It will join my other favorite author Julie Garwoods books on my shelf to read re-read many times. Well done Eloise James and my all time favorite narrator Susan Duerdon. I actually found the series & Eloise James by looking for books Susan narrates.

When is the book

I love this author. The book follows her typical flow but the story is fresh and unique. The drug addiction plot was relatable and different.
