Publisher's Summary

The beautiful Miss Amelia Snowe is not accustomed to being snubbed by the gentlemen of the ton. But when her mother dies unexpectedly, forcing Amelia to take employment as companion to a wealthy cit's daughter, she quickly learns to play down her looks or risk losing her position. When her employers, the Smithsons, decide to throw a country house party, she is determined to fade into the background. But how can she when the Smithson's guest of honor is Lord Quentin Fortescue, the childhood friend who stole her heart?

Lord Quentin Fortescue is far more interested in his host's cotton mills in the north than he is in courting the man's dim-witted daughter. But it's the girl's companion who makes him look twice. Years ago, Miss Amelia Snowe rejected his proposal without a backward glance. Quentin has molded himself into just the sort of man she'd have wanted back then, but is Amelia still the smug beauty who broke his heart? And can either of them risk their newfound positions to indulge the fiery attraction that burns between them?

short and sweet!

I have purchased books in series that were marked two hours or three and after listening to them was glad to see that Audible had made a mistake in listing the length of the book correctly. I was hoping they had made a mistake on this book as well when I purchased it but was surprised to actually see that the book was as long as long as Audible had listed it for. I liked the story and felt that it should have and could have been longer but the love story seemed so rushed. I don't think the book was worth my credit at all even though I liked it. It just needed a lot more.

Light weight.

Silly Tale in a series that I have not read. The narration was uninspired. I am an avid romance fan and didn't like it at all.
