Publisher's Summary

Though barely out of the schoolroom, Melody Ashton was determined to save her mother from scandal. Guardian of several "orphans" (in actuality the illegitimate children of the ton!) poor Mama was accused of pilfering contributions. To make matters worse, the infuriatingly handsome Lord Coe had accused them all of blackmailing his sister, whose child resided with them!

After such rudeness, his offer to make Melody his mistress was the outside of enough! Ignoring all lessons learned in Mingleforth's Rules of Polite Decorum, she told the rake exactly what he was - starting with reckless reprobate and on to debauched womanizer, self-righteous sapskull, and buffle-headed bounder.

Lord Coe was quite confused! Never had a conquest proved so difficult. And never had he feared he was falling so helplessly in love!

Delightful!

An odd assortment of characters written with wit and flair. Absolutely no real heat, and with the always excellent Stevie Zimmerman narrating this is a regency romp to enjoy!

Minor Indiscretions

I loved the part in chapter 19 when little Harry said that if things got really bad, he'd find out who his mother was and ask if she needed a new groom....

Fun story but terrible sound issues

While the story is fun and the narration okay there are some major issues with the editing which pretty much ruined it for me!
