Publisher's Summary

All he wants is someone he can trust. All she wants is to belong. But when compromising circumstances force them together, do they have a chance at finding love?

Silas Riley, Earl of Inglewood, is known among his peers in Parliament as the man made of stone. As a wealthy peer, there are few he trusts with his friendship. He guards his heart and his honor with vigilance, and when an accident nearly takes his life, he’s faced with a situation which threatens his standing in society.

Growing up in the shadow of her older brother, Esther Fox’s acceptance in his circle has been indifferent at best. So, when she ends up in a compromising situation as she saves the life of her brother’s dearest friend, the Earl of Inglewood, she is forced to marry him to save her own reputation. Once again, she finds herself accepted only because of the situation and not because she is truly wanted.

Neither are prepared for a loss, which further complicates their new relationship. With such a difficult beginning, can they ever hope to understand one another, let alone find love?

A sweet/clean regency romance.

Clean Regency Romance

I read this book previously to having listened to the audio book and I thought that Marian Hussey did a fabulous job as the narrator. Enjoyed the book even more on the second time around.

I have enjoyed all of Sally Britton's books and so it is no surprise that I loved this one too. I like her writing style. This story was full of angst since both the main characters were broken or flawed in ways that prevented them from seeing life as it truly was. Esther saw her life through a lens that made her believe no one wanted her, treated her as a burden and opening her heart would leave her vulnerable. Silas's lens was that it was his duty to take things in hand, make good decisions and maintain his honor at all costs. Neither could see each other's view point clearly and thus we have serious conflict in a marital relationship. He doing what is best for her and she feeling treated like a child or his subject rather than his partner in marriage.

I don't always enjoy lots of angst in a book. I judge how good the story is by my reaction to it. Did it make me roll my eyes, or did it make me want to throttle characters who couldn't see clearly? If it makes my emotions highly involved in the story then it is good. In this book I wanted to throttle both main characters. "Noooo, tell her why you are doing that!" "Noooo, tell him how you feel!" In other words, I was made to care about these people. I wanted them to choose better so they could reach their happily ever after. But we had to have some angst before we could get to that point. I found myself choked with emotion at some points in the story. I could feel the characters' pain and wanted to cry right along with them.

This story is an example of how difficult it would be to be a woman in this time period where fathers, brothers and husbands made decisions for women and not always to their benefit. I have a hope inside that there were many men who learned as Silas did that women could and should be consulted in decision making. Reading stories that show that progress helps me believe that it happened in real life too.

No sex, language or violence

Sweet, clean Regency Romance

Story: 5 stars
An excellently written story! We journey with the H and h through the gentle evolution of their feelings for one another. The author doesn’t rush, but takes her time and it all feels natural and perfectly timed.

The characters really do evolve and change and it is wonderful to see their growth.

I’m hoping this is part of a series, because I really didn’t want it to end.

Narration: 5 stars
Excellent narrator who truly does a wonderful job with the various voices. It is so true that a narrator can ‘make or break’ a book and this narrator makes a wonderful book all the better!

Written with so much heart.

This was a lovely story and written with so much heart. Silas did not really understand Esther or what she had felt all her life. This did cause problems for them and my heart went out to these characters. Loved the twists and looking forward to any additional books with these characters or by Sally Britton. The author choosing of Marian Hussey was brilliant!

A very satisfying read

What I enjoyed:

• The story had a great beginning with Esther saving Lord Inglewood from a falling statue of Hermes. This immediately drew me into the story.
• Esther and Silas were the type of characters that you wanted to discover more about as you listened to their story.
• The secondary characters added depth to the story.
• I liked that a theme in the story was about love coming from loss?
• The descriptions of locations and emotions were well done, easy to visualize, and to feel. I felt a part of the scenes.
• The pacing of the story was neither too slow nor too fast.
• There was a smooth, coherent flow to this book.
• This story had a very satisfying ending.
• The narrator did an excellent job in differentiating the various characters' voices. She did an amazing job.
• This was a clean story.

I was given a free audiobook by the author. My review was voluntary and my opinions were my own. I will be listening to or reading more books by this author. I will also keep a lookout for books narrated by Marian Hussey.

Rescuing Lord Inglewood

I was drawn into this story from the very beginning. Sally Britton’s writing flows and it was like I was right there experiencing everything as it happened. I especially loved the ending.

Marian Hussey delivered a wonderful performance. She brought out the personalities and emotions of each of the characters.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Beautiful story

This was a wonderfully written journey of personal growth and finding your place in life. From Esther's overwhelming loneliness to her discovery of love and happiness, I really felt every single emotion she experienced. Add to that a slow burning romance that had me rotating between sighing and wanting to shake the characters, and this was an excellent read that has me looking forward to picking up the rest of the series.
The narrator did a fantastic job differentiating between the cast of characters and expressing all the various emotions throughout the story.

Who rescued whom?

I love how rescuing a man in those days becomes a complete scandal! Of course it could have been the other instances that put her into those situations. You will just have to listen to what happens in this lovely story to hear all about it! Wonderfully written and well narrated!

Amazing!

I first read this novel ages ago, so I already knew the storyline. I still enjoyed this version just as much as if I was hearing the story for the first time. I love this authors stories, but I thought the narrator did a stellar job of bringing this audio version to life. I really felt that the characters were speaking for themselves & the way she transitioned between each one with their own varied emotions was amazing. I especially enjoyed the way she narrated for the heroine of the story, Esther. So much emotion! I would recommend this book in any format but I especially enjoyed this version! One of the best audible books I have listened to yet.
