Publisher's Summary

A lovely widow plans to marry a French count in this historical romance by bestselling author Marion Chesney

It was true. The lovely young widow Lady Charteris - Delphine to her friends - had agreed to abide by her parents' wishes and marry the Comte Saint-Pierre. Delphine's parents had long since died in the Terror, but when she learned of their wishes for her, she believed it her duty to respect their wishes. Delphine would marry, but it would be a marriage in name only.

But when Delphine saw Jules Saint-Pierre, she got the shock of her life: he was the same man she had seen juggling in the streets at a local fair. What was he doing as the Comte Saint-Pierre? Was he posing? Had she made some terrible mistake?

Bait and switch

Thought we were getting a strong, intelligent heroine with an interesting story line. But very quickly she turns into a nagging, spoiled, petulant shrew. Also, Chesney describes her characters with the same physical characters in many of her books.

A light listen without any strong language

Wanted something light to listen to whilst I did some cleaning. This fit the bill. It was light, entertaining and an easy listen.

Very enjoyable romance!

This was a very enjoyable romance. It had some historical references to the French Revolution. What I appreciated the most was that it didn’t get smutty like most of the romances do. A suggestion of what is happening is sufficient. I don’t need all the details. It detracts from the story. I would highly recommend this book and author! I have listened to several of her other books and they’re always light and fun. The narrator is great. I love her accent! She helps make the listen!
