Publisher's Summary

A woman with a shocking past...

Branded a money-hungry con artist for marrying the elderly duke of Tremaine days before his death, Viola Cartwright has found refuge in her work at St. Agatha’s Hospital. No one must know the painful reason behind her marriage. She steers clear of attachments - until Henry Lowell, heir to the Viscount Armswell, lands on her operating table after a duel. Charming and wickedly handsome, Lowell is one of London’s most inveterate scoundrels. Yet he may not be all that he appears.

...and the man who can promise a future filled with love...

Posing as an unrepentant rake has helped Lowell avoid women pursuing him only for his title. But now that duty has finally called on him to marry, he finds himself entranced by the mysterious, independent-minded Viola. Then, her late husband’s son returns from overseas, contesting Viola’s inheritance. Lowell longs to help her and sets out to convince Viola that a strategic union may be the best way to save all she holds dear. But can he also persuade her to take a chance on love?

Good book. Excellent Narration!

This was a good book. I enjoyed it.

I really liked Viola, she was very smart. I liked Lowell too. They made a good match. There was some mystery thrown into this romance. The chemistry between the two was great. They actually got to know each other throughout the book and it as not full of any angst. So that was a bonus. There was a lot of good dialogue too.

It was a bit long and could have been shortened a little but all in all a really good story.

As for the narration it was great. I am a big fan of Carolyn Morris. She does such a great job on all the voices and has such a nice reading voice. Always a pleasure to listen to her.

Nurse Bashing

There was an unbelievable amount of ignorance and condescension shown to the nursing profession in this book. I'm not sure if the author is completely ignorant of our profession and what we actually do or dislikes a nurse IRL and is being petty. To say a nurse cant do a Dr.'s job but a Dr. can do a nurses job is false. My husband is a neurologist and is the first to say he could never do my job. Then the lead character says, "I knew you were more than a nurse", when she shows the slightest bit of competence. I actually laughed out loud. So a bit of advice to the author.......dont piss off nurses. I'm sure we're the ones buying your books. When were not playing cards we read. HA!
