Publisher's Summary

It has been two years since Lady Marion Tunstall lost her husband at sea, two years of sorrow and grief. Only now has the comely young widow finally reentered society. It is then, when she and her family attend the merriment of a country dance, that Lady Marion sees her dead husband, alive and well - and faints dead away.

Lord Tristan Tunstall has no choice but to confess: He is alive, yes, but not a whole man who can be a husband and father. When he offers her a divorce, however, Marion stubbornly refuses. Now she has forced herself back into his life and into his home and (oh, God forgive his weakness) his bed. He cannot stop himself from wanting her, loving her. But can he live with the secret she is keeping from him?

We Need A Hero

Tristan is a whinny man with no substance or courage. His constant complaint of blindness makes him a bad husband is tiresome at best, idiotic at worst. Marion is a weak willed woman with no self-respect. She goes crawling back to Tristan despite the fact he gives her not a hint of encouragement & definitely no fireworks. Between his constant "Oh poor me" & her "love me please" it's a sad sapling of a story with much lost potential.

My ears are bleeding

How did I even get through this book?! So much whining! These characters lack personality, they act like little children. So frustrating!

Lisp??

The reader has a bit of a lisp/strong "s" sound which detracts from the story sometimes.

Don't waste your time

Garbage. Tristan is an unlikeable selfish ableist twat, and Marion is a doormat. "I'm blind." "But we're married!" "But I'm blind!" "But we're married!". And now you've read the book.

I Undertsnd the frustration with Heroine

many reviewers dislike Marian and I get their irritation. she chased the dude the entire story. Entire story! And if that personality irritates you, then so will Marianne. Buy during times when being a wide and motjerbwas a woman's value, I guess this was par the course. good story though

Ridiculous

I can’t believe I listened to the whole thing. Maybe I was hoping it would get better. I agree with the other reviewer, it should have been shorter. Neither character was overly likable with the Baron treating his wife like a nagging nuisance in the name of love. But I think the narrator’s reading made it worse. The tone she used for Tristen made him sound like an ass, and Marion whiny.

I didn’t like it

Both main characters were obnoxious. There were moments that I was just rolling my eyes because the story was so repetitive. This book should have been way shorter. The story was dragged unnecessarily.
The narrator was really good.

Not a bad book at all

To think her husband was not dead but hiding because he was blind and wanted to spare her that. interesting the way she had to fight for the marriage from start to finish

got to the end

what a wimpy blind man. or was it the heroine who was the wimp? he behaves appallingly, she takes him back . taraah. and then his coversion to super-lover at the end was too dramatic, did not ring true..
but the good language well narrated kept me listening.

Highly recommend this tear-jerking story

Wow, what love story. Probably the most emotional Regency stories I’ve encountered on Audible to date. Two stubborn characters full of love for the other - each making difficult decisions based on what they think to be right.

For once, vacillating inner dialogues that are appropriately reflective of the main characters as well - a much appreciated departure from that of other historical romance novels where characters bang on incessantly with inane thoughts (a pet peeve of mine).

I’ve walked in Tristan’s shoes myself and could certainly feel for him and his tormented plight. My heart also broke for Marion - a truly beautiful soul. I found the musings of the staff entertaining.

This book is part of the Marriage Mart Mayhem series - which I recommend, as each story has been uniquely different so far (I have 2 more to go!)

Whilst I prefer the narrator of book 1 & 2, this narrator did a good job also.
