Publisher's Summary

A brave young gentlewoman dares to defy an infuriatingly arrogant earl. Brave and beautiful Miss Emily Wingrave knows that it will not be easy to help her older widowed sister deal with the trustee of her late husband’s estate.

The trustee is none other than the willful, arrogant Earl of Meriden, and she is determined to stop him from meddling with her sister’s struggling family. But as Emily engages the provocative Earl in a battle of wits and wills, she learns just how well armed he is: His surprising charm and seductive techniques will make her worry that she might very well be the one who surrenders.

Clever story line interesting stories, poor ending

Thanks to Mary Jane Wells, the characters were interesting and likeable. The story was good until the last chapter when it appeared the author just couldn't pull it all together. There was just too much "stuff" going on.

Terrible book, wonderful narration.

Any additional comments?

When you read terrible reviews on Goodreads, but forget to remove the book from your Audible wishlist...

I am a huge fan of Mary Jane Wells, but even she could not save this nonsense. The two main characters are just awful, unnecessarily argumentative and childish. I'm not sure what exactly the point of this book is. Avoid!
