Publisher's Summary

A 40-year-old mystery may bring two lonely people together or tear them apart, forever.

When the Earl of Wraysbury rescues a young woman from a carriage accident, he can't resist her laughing eyes and wry sense of humor, even though their families have been locked in a feud for generations. Anemone may be achingly lonely but she's loyal to her family. When she wakes up after an accident in the strong arms of a handsome stranger, she's immediately drawn to him, and appalled when she discovers he's her family's sworn enemy, the Earl of Wraysbury. Neither Anemone nor the earl is prepared for the flaring attraction they feel, or for the escalation of the war between their families when a 40-year-old mystery triggers accusations of murder. Loyalty and the threat of a dangerous duel are destined to tear the lonely lovers apart unless they are willing to defy their families and take a chance on love.

Narration distracting

While the narrator has a beautiful voice and is very good at using different voices for each character, her mispronunciation of the heroine's name and several words was extremely distracting. She consistently pronounced ANeMone as AnEnemy. She also mispronounced crooked (crook'd, as in an arm with the elbow bent) as crookEd (crook id, as in something not straight). The story also took some time to get going, as in the previous book.

Horrible narrator

I really wanted to hear this book as the storyline seemed quite interesting. I cringed for the first 5 minutes and couldn’t take it anymore. The narrator ends each sentence in the same long drawn out tone. That was all I could hear. Perhaps I’ll have to read the book instead of listening.
