Publisher's Summary

Justin Wexley, Marquess of Rockton, has decided he doesn't want to be married. He has come to this conclusion after many uncomfortable experiences with young women who were thrust upon him by their domineering mothers as possible candidates for the position of his future wife and Marchioness. He is tired of discussing the weather with these silly, nitwitted girls. He is perfectly happy taking care of his large estate with the knowledge that one day his cousin, a smart and diligent young man, will one day inherit his title and property.

Miss Catherine Simms arrives at her friend's home in the country to celebrate Christmas with her and her family. She discovers that the Marquess of Rockton has also been included in the invitation. Catherine has heard the rumors about Lord Rockton's aversion to marriage. She finds him to be intelligent as well as handsome and greatly enjoys the time spent with him. Regrettably, they part under less than ideal circumstances on Christmas day.

Fate works its magic and the two of them meet again two years later. Can Justin and Catherine forget about their less than ideal experiences from the past and begin to make lovely, happy moments together in the present?

Fate. Love. Knowledge.

Full of rules of etiquette and forced discipline, Justin is put off with absent minded women. When he meets Catherine, they both begin to challenge the boundaries of what they know and love. Reader was a great pick for this one.

Very sweet story.

The narrator did an excellent job. It was very enjoyable to listen to. The story, while short, was extremely well-written and true to the time period in both dialogue and description. The author has an excellent voice for this era. If you like authors like Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen, you will like this author. Highly recommend and look forward to reading something else by her.
