Publisher's Summary

What clever woman would want a man like Lord Harry Desire? Why, he was clearly a lummox - languid, vain, and bland. Not even his beautiful face could redeem him. But he stood to inherit a vast fortune, and that was good enough for Deirdre's father, a spendthrift vicar who arranged the match to rescue himself from imminent financial collapse. Leave it to Deirdre to contrive an escape, a quick elopement with her one true love, the dashing Guy Wentwater.

But Wentwater's love proved none too true, and Deirdre found herself in a humiliating pickle. Not even Lord Harry would marry her now. But Harry had more tricks up his tailored sleeve than Deirdre ever imagined. And soon she pined only for the marriage thrown away, and for a man whose arms had grown suddenly irresistible!

Okay

Once again I have listened to another story of the Armitage sisters. I honestly don't know why I am still listening to these books but I can't help myself. And again no surprised Deirdre is vain, self centered and thinks only about her wants and needs. However, I must say with the greedy Vicar for a father and a mother who is always faking illness (in my opinion) what else can we expect? As a vicar's daughter, should you even be sneaking out to meet a man at night? What is going on with vicar's daughters?? Did I miss something in the church? Oh well, onto the next chapter.

Not very interesting....

While I liked the first two books in the series, this was insipid and uninteresting for the most part. Not sure I would recommend it, even as part of the series.

can't put it down

Would you listen to Deirdre and Desire again? Why?

I would listen to this book if I was reading the This six sisters. It was a good book.

Silly but okay.

Characters are well drawn, but it is of the genre that after you read one or two, it's just fine, you don't need to read this format over and over and over. Lesser Jane Austin also rans.
