Publisher's Summary

To most people, princes, princesses, counts, and dukes are found only in the pages of the most famous of fairy tales. Crowns, priceless jewels, and gilded thrones belong only in childhood dreams. But for some, these frivolous fancies are truth. For some, they are real life.
On Manhattan's Upper East Side, people have always treated me as someone special. All because of my ancestral name and legacy. All because of a connection I share to our home country's most important family of all.
I am Caresa Acardi, the Duchessa di Parma. A blue blood of Italy. I was born to marry well. And now the marriage date is set. I am to marry into House Savona. The family that would have been the royals had Italy not abolished the monarchy in 1946. But to the aristocrats of my home, the abolition means nothing at all.
The Savonas still hold power where it counts most.
In our tight-knit world of money, status, and masked balls, they are everything and more. And I am soon to become one of them.
I am soon to become Prince Zeno Savona's wife...or at least I was, until I met Achille. And everything changed.

This is a beautiful story that is performed with feeling.
My only concern is the overly long gap between chapters.

Beautiful story

I had previously read this book but I do like to listen to them on Audible as well. The story is a 5 star read and I would give the Audible version the same rating as the narration of this book is spot on. Some times with Audible books the voices don't match the characters but both voices were just brilliant.
