Publisher's Summary

One woman catches his eye....

London, 1819. Four years ago, Darius, the earl of Redgrave, fled London two weeks before his wedding to Lady Mary’s sister and married another woman. Now a widower, he has returned to seek a new wife. 

At first, Lady Mary doesn’t recognize the handsome lord as the cad who ran out on her sister. After giving him the cut direct in a London ballroom, she finds herself running into him everywhere she goes and fighting a forbidden attraction. Not only has Mary sworn off men, Redgrave is so very wrong for her. But she cannot stop thinking of his kisses. Redgrave means to stay away from Mary, but it is impossible. Passion between two people who can never be together is a dangerous game.

Female lead starts strong, ends weak

I understand the need to keep twists and turns but the female lead becomes a ninny by the end of the book.

The Earl’s return

Almost didn’t listen to this one but am glad I did. The title details made the Earl sound like a complete reprobate and stories of reformed persons of his ilk are generally too unbelievable. The twist in this story, however, was interesting and made you feel for the foolish man.

Not That Great

This wasn't that interesting to me. I took a break and totally forgot all about this book. When you put down a good book, you can't wait to get back to it.

Excellent series

Loved every book… this one was a great ending to a very entertaining series. Only disappointment is that it’s the last one. Narration was wonderful. Storyline was unique and well developed. Characters easy to like (or hate.)

Phenomenal read

I thoroughly enjoyed this read. I was so shocked on why he left her sister but this was so much worse than I expected. So sad what he went through.
I love all the sisters in this series.
I highly recommend this book.

Annoying Narration

I couldn’t get beyond the first couple chapters. The narrator clipped whining voice was too much to endure. A shame since I enjoy the authors.

Absolutely Loved!

I love this story and adore Redgrave and Mary. Definitely one of my top favorites in the series. I really enjoyed the Marriage Mart Mayhem series and am sad to be finished with it.

nothing to fault

good narration, nice story that ticks all the boxes. Unlike so many historical romances this romance is age appropriate and consensual and I don't recall any problematic behaviour. Quite refreshing, more like this please. I don't want to read anymore books about teenage girls and problematic 30 something men.

another nice free book

I have enjoyed this series it all blends together so its best to listen from the start of the series but the books can be standalone.

A good sweet story

I have listened to the whole series. This book like good storyline. Even though it’s a love story the think o like the most is the bond between brother and sisters. He tries his best to protect his sisters. I also like the romance between the main characters. I recommend this.

An unlikely plot

The narrator's staccato delivery and the improbability of the plot are both off putting.

Surprisingly good story

This was the last novel of the Marriage Mart Mayhem series I listened to, not because it concluded the series but because I wasn’t sure I’d like the subject matter of this romance.

But I gave it a go and am so glad I did. The circumstance of the Earl’s ruination of Mary’s sister, Abigail (book 3 of the 7 part series), is eventually uncovered. The development of Mary and the Earl’s strong attraction for each other is handled well by the author and there’s another sub-plot in the novel to add another element of interest.
I would like to have known what happened to Claremont and his new wife but that’s not a focal point of the story and theirs was probably to be a loveless marriage typical and accepted of Ton marriages.

The narration was excellent. I really enjoyed this story and recommend it (and the entire series).
