Publisher's Summary

Unjustly labeled a flirt, Kitty Beaucroft is in need of a fiancé. Lord Philip Butler's father wants him to settle down before he can become a landowner. With no intention of following through, Kitty and Philip enter into a temporary engagement as a means to an end. Unfortunately, someone knows the truth and is determined to expose them. Will the ruse turn into a romance before it's too late?

Ruse & Romance

I have not listened to a historical romance in a while and this was so refreshing. The characters are fun and you could not help but all in love with Philip and Kitty's grandmother. The Ruse to save Kitty's reputation gets out and in true fashion of this time period things get a bit hectic. I must say some people get what's coming to them. Helen Taylor does a fantastic job weaving this tale for you and makes it so easy to get lost in it. The story is a short listen and well worth your time you will feel as if you have stepped back in time.

Sweet Romance!

Kitty had turned down every offer of marriage she had received. After the last one left in a mad rush, her father told her if she had not excepted one by the next ball, she would be leaving London to go to his mothers in the country to live. At the ball all of the men turned their backs on her and she fled the room. She went to a room that she thought that was empty. She saw a man setting in a chair half dressed reading a book. It startled her so bad, she fell flat and started crying. It was Lord Phillip Butler and he came to her defense. He dressed and went down to the ball to dance with her. Then the story goes into twists and turns. The narrator did a great job.

Wonderful start to the series!

I really enjoy historical romance, it's one of the sub genres I will go to that cleanses my thoughts. This one is light and fun, and the characters easy to like. Kitty is being pushed into getting married by her family, but the suitors being set for her are not to her liking. Phillip is trying to find his way, he is the second in line in his family and is always the one getting in trouble. When these two bump into each other, it is evident that there is chemistry. But being from different statuses, they are not meant to be together. The ruse they set up is sure to be successful...or is it? Give this a listen, you are sure to love Phillip, be frustrated at times with Kitty and love to hate her suitors!

Suzanne G Rogers has written a wonderful love story, bringing two unlikely people together. It’s my first book by her, and with its throughly enjoyable plot it will not be my last. Narrated by the very talented Helen Taylor, she brought this cast of characters to life each with a definite voice and personality.

Delightful Listen!

I really enjoyed listening to this romance. The premise of causing a scandal to avoid a scandal was unique. I loved the attraction of Kitty and Phillip from the very beginning. Suzanne G. Rogers is a new author to me, while I've listened to and enjoyed Helen Taylor previously. The characters had depth and substance. I loved how Kitty didn't want to settle with a marriage or conform to society dictates. The premise of marrying for love was not typical of the times in this book. I found the machinations and contrivances to be very interesting in this book. The banter in this book was great too! I wish the story would have included exactly what the Grandmother said to Kitty , but the line that was included had me laughing out loud. I hope the next book in this series comes out in audio as I want to hear what happens next. This book is a standalone listen and features a HEA. I hope the author writes more stories about these wonderful characters! The narrator did a wonderful performance with her distinguishable voices for the various characters. I will definitely listen to more books by both author and narrator in the future.
