Publisher's Summary

In New York Times best-selling author Jennifer McQuiston's enticing new Seduction Diaries entry, a mysterious journal may provide a potential spinster with instruction - or lead her to her heart's desire.

Free-spirited Lucy Westmore isn't yet a spinster, although she fully intends to be. Fortunately, an eccentric aunt has left her both a diary detailing the secrets to spinsterhood and a cottage in Cornwall. Unfortunately, an insufferable marquess is angling for her prize! Turning Lord Thomas Branston down flat should be easy. So why does this man who won't take no for an answer make Lucy's body and soul sigh yes?

Thomas knows the real value of Heathmore Cottage, and he has no intention of letting some silly society miss get her hands on it. He'll simply have to charm Lucy into selling. But the clever young woman he encounters, first in London then en route to Cornwall, stands stubbornly on her own two (quite lovely) feet. And now Thomas can think only of sweeping her off them.

Scandalous Spinster!

Story: I always enjoy a Jennifer McQuiston romance and this one did not let me down. Extremely enjoyable, heartwarming and humorous this HEA historical romance is a gem!

Narrator : What an incredible performance by Lana J. Weston!!! I can do nothing but rave about how good she is. When it's hard to believe only one person is doing all those voices than you know you're hearing a artist do their thing.

Heat Factor: Pleasingly warm.....

Fabulous Hero Who Appreciates Nature

Any additional comments?

I simply loved this story! What I enjoyed most about this audiobook are the two main characters. Lucy who would rather be reading books and helping out charities than attending balls and talking to young dandies. And Lord Thomas is not your usual aristocrat. He'd rather spend all of his time traversing the craggy hills and dales of Cornwall collecting rocks and plants for the national geographic society. Thomas reminded me a bit of Roger Hamley from Elizabeth Gaskell's Wives and Daughters.

Don't listen in bed if husband is trying to SLEEP!

Any additional comments?

I can't remember the last time I have laughed so hard to a book. From the train scene on, I was laughing and my poor husband was trying to sleep. Between cracking up and shaking with laughter it was a sleepless night.

One of my favorites of 2015

I LOVED this!!!

Jennifer McQuiston is fabulous. She is one of the authors whose work I pre-order as soon as available. Imagine a scientist writing excellent romances. She is just wonderful

Lucy is at the top of my list of awesome characters. Independent, smart, tomboyish - she's great. And Thomas is a valiant opponent (?) for her. The story is top-notch. The narration of the audiobook is top-notch. This is one my favorites of 2015.

Now the author needs to stop fighting Ebola and write the next book. :-)
