Publisher's Summary

Once Upon a Time...

Maria Martingale was going to elope. But Phillip Hawthorne, Marquess of Kayne, put a stop to those plans when he learned his younger brother intended to marry a cook's daughter. Now, 12 years later, Maria discovers that the man who holds her fate in his hands is none other than the haughty gentleman who sent her packing - and he's as handsome and arrogant as ever.  

Happily Ever After?  

Always the proper gentleman, Phillip will do anything to protect his family from scandal, and when Maria dares to move in right next door, he knows scandal will surely follow. She is as tempting as he remembered...and the more he sees her, the harder it is for Phillip to keep his own secret desire for her a secret....

Enjoyable listen

I'm enjoying this series of books. I'd give this story a 3.5, class difference story. Medium steam. Good narration.

Another good listen

This is the 3rd book in the girl bachelor series and the quality is maintained. I purchased the audio version. It’s a good listen except for the American accents which are fairly horrible. Thank goodness the American parts are very small. Pronunciations leave a lot to be desired. Anyway the Phillip and Maria story is just as good as the others. I like that the Men in the series have no problem telling the women in their lives that they love them once they discover they do. Another abrupt ending but the first chapter in the next book is a nice bonus.

He found his match

Being independent and strong is the theme for all the girl bachelors in this series. Knowing what she wants as a businesswoman and staying true to herself puts her at odds with the man from her past who hid his feelings for her since they were young. She is not going away and he can't deny his desire for her. Whitty and charming, this story keeps you entertained. These two are destined to make a love match.
