Publisher's Summary

In need of a wife....

Christian Villiers, the Marquess of St. Cyr, despises the role he's been cast into as fortune hunter but requires the funds to keep his marquisate solvent. Yet, the sins of his past cloud his future, preventing him from seeing beyond his fateful actions at the Battle of Toulouse. For he knows inevitably it will catch up with him, and everyone will remember his actions on the battlefield that cost so many so much - particularly his best friend.

In want of a husband...

Lady Prudence Tidemore's life is plagued by familial scandals, which makes her own marital prospects rather grim. Surely there is one gentleman of the ton who can look past her family and see just her and all she has to offer?

When Prudence runs into Christian on a London street, the charming, roguish gentleman immediately captures her attention. But then a chance meeting becomes a waltz, and now...

A Perfect Match....

All she must do is convince Christian to forget the cold requirements he has for his future marchioness. But the demons in his past prevent him from turning himself over to love. One thing is certain - Prudence wants the marquess and is determined to have him in her life, now and forever. It's just a matter of convincing Christian he wants the same.

I Am Captivated.

Love this book. The story is amazing. So many twists & turns. Christi Caldwell writes amazing characters who are imperfect & that makes them the best ones to read about. Tim Campbell does an amazing job on narration. The book is wildly romantic & funny. I laughed at many moments. Great stand alone or get the series. I love this family. .

Captivated by a Lady’s Charm

Cute story of a young lady who is making her first season with many obstacles. It seems her family has made serious scandals, which has impacted her ability to make a match. She meets her husband by chance and was instantly attracted to him as he was with her, but he feels unworthy. This story is of their courtship.

Lovely

I was captivated by this sweet story. Full of faith, love and forgiveness. Christian and Prudence prove that love is worth fighting for even for a young starry eyed miss and a man who feels he will never deserve her. Christi Caldwell is a master at weaving a tale of love and Tim Campbell brings her stories to life.

Boring and too tame

I have three hours left and I couldn’t care less what happens. Blah blah blah. No heat or passion. This is my first Caldwell book. I might try one more before bailing. Mia Vincy and Loretta Chase offer much better of the same and I definitely prefer Roslyn Landor over Tim Campbell. Waste of time for me.

Releasing Inner Demons

This is a wonderful story about the guilt and horrors of war that men carry with them after they return home. These soldiers now fight a different battle; one which some never win. Christian Villiers is one of these men. He’s covered the scars he bears by roguish living. Thrust into the position of Marquis, he’s inherited with the title an insurmountable debt. He needs to marry for money: For now he’s responsible for his mother, sister, and his unusual staff made up of former soldiers. Prudence Tidemore is a romantic. Her family has suffered two scandals that hang over her and her younger sisters’ heads. That makes her a wallflower because no one in the ton of Regency England wants to be attached to a scandal. A chance meeting between the two sets in motion a whirlwind of events and emotions. No matter what, they can and will not be together. I totally enjoyed this book. At first I feared it would be a mirror of the first book in the series, but it was much more. I was engaged with the characters as they wrestled with their emotions and their situations. It’s a great storyline, made better by the fact that the author spent time with former military men who suffered the same guilt and shame. Of course I recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading stories of redemption and the power of love. The Audible version is narrated by Tim Campbell. Although he’s not my favorite, I think he did a good job with this book. He brought Christian to life in a deeply satisfying way.

Perfect

This book held a lot of emotions for the characters and it was portrayed beautifully by the author. I hope the evil villain gets a book of his own.

Nasty guardians

I dislike the fact that these guardians nasty behaviors towards there charges are never address... I long for the day I read or listen to one of these Regency novels and witness these young ladies or men stand up to there parents or guardians and give them a realgood set down. I dont think we needed all the nastiness and bitterness in this story. Sins nastiness or the little sister's nastiness was not necessary only took away from the story

Charm and Determination Good Second Instalment

Being in love is a beautiful thing. However, being in love and being determined to get the one you want is what I appreciated about Prudence. This is another good story by CC. The characters and supporting characters round out the book so well. Also, I like the way the book makes you wonder how certain things/information is bought to the forefront. This book will not disappoint Time Campbell is amazing as usual.
