Publisher's Summary

A very practical marriage makes Alexander Westcott question his heart in the latest Regency romance from the New York Times best-selling author of Someone to Hold.

When Alexander Westcott becomes the new Earl of Riverdale, he inherits a title he never wanted and a failing country estate he can't afford. But he fully intends to do everything in his power to undo years of neglect and give the people who depend on him a better life....

A recluse for more than 20 years, Wren Heyden wants one thing out of life: marriage. With her vast fortune, she sets her sights on buying a husband. But when she makes the desperate and oh-so-dashing earl a startlingly unexpected proposal, Alex will agree only to a proper courtship, hoping for at least friendship and respect to develop between them. He is totally unprepared for the desire that overwhelms him when Wren finally lifts the veils that hide the secrets of her past....

Nice change of pace

This book is not overly sexual. Yes, you can actually focus on the developing the relationship between the main characters. The narration was good. It was worth the credit.

Someone to Wed

Another wonderful story by Mary Balogh. I love the characters and the struggle they have to over come to find love and acceptance.

A favorite for sure!

I have binge listened to all of Mary Balogh’s books.. she tells a perfect story and her series all draw you deep into the families involved... so much so that I am always feeling like I’m missing news of good friends when I am done. Rosalyn Landor is my favorite narrator for MB books and a favorite narrator overall. Her voice is warm and breathes life into every story she tells!

Late bloomer

I love Mary Balogh. I think I’ve read or listened to most of her books. Some of her books grab you from page one. Some take some time. This book, although excellent, is one of the latter. The start was a bit drawn out. To the point that I almost gave up. The best part of this book are the last eight or nine chapters. I’m glad I plowed through because there is payoff. Rosalyn Landor is superb!

Entertaining read

Mary always comes through with a very interesting plot. Love her stories. Rosalyn Lander does such a good job reading them to us.

ALEXANDER WESTCOTT

Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I never listened to Rosalyn Landor before, but she did a very good job.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

YES, WHEN WREN TOLD HER CHILDHOOD STORY.

Any additional comments?

I have many of Mary Balogh books and this is the first one that I got on audible and I'm very happy with the read.

Definitely not Mary Balogh's Best

Rosalyn Landor does her usual excellent job with narrating, but even she can't save lackluster writing. There is no real conflict. The heroine has had a body image issue for almost thirty years, but the hero has her overcoming it in three months.
