Publisher's Summary

Miss Claire Ashford knows exactly what she wants out of life - to marry for love. When she finds herself alone in the woods with none other than notorious rake Ian Michael Caldwell, Viscount Knightly, her chances of a proper match are ruined. He is willing to sacrifice himself for the sake of her reputation, but she is determined not to marry anyone out of obligation.

For years, Ian has wanted nothing more than to, one day, marry Miss Claire Ashford. When fate forces them into a compromising situation, he vows to do just that. In spite of every effort, she refuses his suit. Not one to easily give up, Ian drafts assistance from an unlikely source.

As her first season continues, Claire finds it increasingly difficult to keep her distance from Ian. His charm, and ability to stir feelings inside of her she didn't know existed, makes it hard to remember why she refused him in the first place. With his relentless pursuit and her weakening resolve, she desperately wants to give in to him. However, after seeing he hasn't changed his rakish ways, how can she trust him not to break her heart, again?

I can't wait for the next book

I really like this book. I wish they would have just said that they liked each other a a lot sooner and I would have liked to see them have kids. The performance was really good, and there was enough drama.

Amazing narration brings a fantastic story to life

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you love regency, you'll love this.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Ian. He's swoon-worthy!

What about Charlotte Cole and Will M. Watt ’s performance did you like?

Charlotte and Will brought these characters to life. Having narrators who deliver believable performances along with the unique duet style narration makes a huge difference when listening.

Love the narration

Great book. Loved the characters. The narration was the absolute best; Will and Charlotte could read the phone book and I would listen. So with the other 3 books in this series was available.

Great Performance with frustrating characters

This novel follows the classic romance
setup, and the audiobook performances are exceptional. The two main characters are attracted to each other and have secretly wanted the other for many years. However, Claire views Ian as a rake and Ian believes Claire uninterested in him. Claire was incredibly frustrating, choosing to respond to Ian in some of the most absurd ways. I've never felt the need to yell at a book before, but I yelled at Claire multiple times. Will Watts, in particular, have a very evocative performance, but it didn't make up for the frustrations of the characters.

Fine to listen to while doing something else

Meh. Book contains the most over-used and annoying tropes in romance novels - the characters love each other but for some reason won't tell. Whatever. And the heroine will only marry for love, blah, blah, blah. So the "plot" is all tortured misunstandings and angst. One of the main plot points is dang unbelievable. But this is fantasy so whatever.

There is no character development. The narrator is good and the secondary characters are interesting (more than the main characters).
