Publisher's Summary

Author Cathy Maxwell's popular romance novels are appreciated for their proud-yet-passionate heroines and strong, roguish heroes. Falling in Love Again is set amongst the castles and woodlands of 18th-century England.

Born into wealthy family, heiress Mallory Edwards honorably marries John Barron to fulfill a family obligation. Although he seems charming at first, she soon discovers that he is a beast of a man. Abandoned on her wedding night, she survives by her wit and resourcefulness until her errant husband's debts became too much for her to overcome.

Facing debtor's prison, Mallory won't rest until she finds John and nullifies their marriage. But he may not be the villain she believes him to be.

Author Cathy Maxwell has been a finalist for the prestigious RITA award from the Romance Writer's of America. Narrator Vanessa Moroney lends a special radiance to Maxwell's tale of bedlam and bliss.

Whiny

I had a very hard time finishing this book -- more than once I almost gave up. I am not sure if it was because of the narration, but the heroine seemed to whine her way through this book.

I was willing to give her some leeway at the start, she is 16 and thrust into a rushed wedding with an unknown boy, so perhaps some whining is in order. But years later, she still is whining. Listen to the sound snippet, Mallory at 16 is pretty much Mallory at 24. As for the love story (afterall this is a romance, so of course they fall in love) -- I couldn't buy it. It seems as if out of the blue the hero is besotted with his wife, cannot live without her, but I wasn't sure why? He wants to be nagged through life?

I have enjoyed Cathy Maxwell's books in the past, but not this one. Check out The Marriage Contract, that story had more humour, and the heroine was actually feisty, unlike this book, where the heroine was almost obnoxious.

reviews are misleading

Before I read this book I read the reviews where they were complaining about the heroine being too whiny I do not agree... this book is worth listening to
