Of the three Brady sisters, Lady Marcia has always seemed the girl most likely to lead a perfectly charmed life. But after a handsome cad breaks her heart, she swears off love and devotes her life to teaching girls at a private school. In spite of her family's wish for a London debut, Marcia is happy where she is-until terrible news sends her back to the Brady clan...and into the arms of an unexpected suitor.
A dark and dashing earl who knows Marcia's past, Duncan Lattimore is surprised by what a fascinating and independent woman she's become. Marcia, too, is surprised-by the fiery attraction she feels for Duncan. But why-why-must he be the brother of the scoundrel who broke her heart? Why must Marcia's rival at school forbid her from seeing him? How can this lady possibly resist this fellow-when they know that it's much more than a hunch....?
I bought this because I love to listen to Alison Larkin. However, the book is so silly! All that heavy sex, etc. in the era of Jane Austen? And none of the characters had much "going on" in their lives, apart from following the tedious plot line.. The heroine kept telling us what a great and grand educator she is, but the author doesn't allow us to see her in this role.
Ms. Larkin's reding though really is wonderful. She has such a lovely way of rendering children.
