Publisher's Summary

Lieutenant Lucien Jones, son of a viscount, returned from war, to find his wife and child dead. Blaming his father for the commission that sent him off to fight Boney's forces, he was content to languish at London Hospital - until offered employment on the Marquess of Drake's staff. Through his position, Lucien found purpose in life and is content to keep his past buried.

Lady Eloise Yardley has loved Lucien since they were children. Having long ago given up on the dream of him, she married another. Years later, she is a young, lonely widow who does not fit in with the ton. When Lucien's family enlists her aid to reunite father and son, she leaps at the opportunity to not only aid her former friend, but to also escape London.

Lucien doesn't know what scheme Eloise has concocted, but knowing her as he does, when she pays a visit to his employer, he knows she's up to something. The last thing he wants is the temptation that this new, older, mature Eloise presents; a tantalizing reminder of happier times and peace.

Yet Eloise is determined to win Lucien's love once and for all - if only Lucien can set aside the pain of his past and risk all on a lady's heart.

Too many Vices to count, I give up!

With only 3 more hours to go and after suffering through 47 excruciating “Vice Counts”, I give up and go roll in the snow instead. A mediocre sob story about a stalker chick fixating her unwanted attentions on a childhood friend and the trauma drama that ensues makes this one of the memorable disappointments by Ms. Caldwell.

"Vice-count", seriously??

While i enjoyed the story and writing very much, Hugh Bradley's mispronunciations of words essential to any Regency Romance had me gritting my teeth to make it to the end. He is basically an enjoyable Reader so I don!t understand why his blunders are so bad.

DNF

I tried twice to listen to the book, but I finally gave up on it.The narration was too distracting to enjoy the book or even know what it is about. I spent the little time I gave the book waiting for the next mispronounced word instead of paying attention to the story. I am a fan of Christi Caldwell, but I just couldn't listen to this book.

Why?

Why offer WhysperSync for bk#2 but NOT this bk#1!?! You peoples have been in this business long enough that you should know how to get it consistent to ensure customer satisfaction.

A fine performance by Hugh Bradley. This is the first book I have listened to him narrate and I like his voice very much. He does a good job of playing each character.

Christi gives us another compelling series. The book review is on Amazon.

Narration

Choppy and monotone. Like reading an essay with too many errors. Couldn’t enjoy the story.

Thoroughly enjoyed!

This was a sweet, clean story. The narration was good with only one complaint. He said Viscount wrong through the whole story. Other than that he did a great job. I really enjoyed it and will listen to it again soon.

Tragic Grief

This is the first book in the Lords of London Series. Lady Eloise has been searching for her childhood friend, Lucien Jones, who hid himself away when he returned from the war. Purposely estranged from his family, especially his father, he took a job as a butler after recovering from his injuries. Sadly he had lost part of an arm. Eloise, now a widow, was tasked with finding Lucien because his father was dying and his brothers hoped to have them reconcile before he passed. Just as importantly, Eloise had loved Lucien since they were children so she had a personal reason as well.
Lucien had become a hard, bitter man. He was angry that she found him, and wanted to be left alone in the miserable life he’d made for himself.
This is an emotionally intense story. The deep pain and loss they had both suffered was terrible. Each had responded in a vastly different way.
I enjoyed the book. The characters are genuine in their emotions. It’s well-written with a good storyline. I also listened to the book on Audible, but wasn’t too impressed with the narrator. Overall I would recommend the written over the audio versions.

didn't finish

I don't know why exactly but this was a hard listen. I didn't finish it. maybe I'll revisit later. It seemed the history took too long to explain and still disconnected.

Learn to pronounce "viscount"!

This narrator pronounced it "vice-count" every single time. Started out funny and got to be annoying. Only the worst of several mispronunciations.

enjoyable, but.....

Would someone please tell the reader of this book that the “s” in viscount is silent?
