Publisher's Summary

Lady Arabella Blydon has beauty and a brain, and she's tired of men who can see only one without the other.
When a suitor tells Arabella he's willing to overlook her appalling bluestocking tendencies on account of her looks and fortune, she decides to take a break from the Marriage Mart. During an extended stay in the country, she never expects to meet Lord John Blackwood, a wounded war hero who intrigues her like no other man.
Lord John has lived through the worst horrors of war, but nothing could have been as terrifying to his tormented heart as Lady Arabella. She is intoxicating, infuriating, and she makes him want to live again. Suddenly he's writing bad poetry and climbing trees in the pitch-dark night just so he can dance with her as the clock strikes midnight. And even though he knows he can never be the sort of man she deserves, he can't help wanting her. But when the harsh light of day replaces the magic of midnight, can this tormented soul learn to love again?

Love the story not the performance

This is one of my favourite Julia Quinn books. Sadly not my favourite audio. The performance is dreadful, it in no way captured the sassiness of Bell or the dryness of John, but turned them winey and annoying, it felt like the performance was mocking the characters.

The story is predictable, but I'm a way where you're happy they just get on with it rather than drawing it out. It still remains a favourite book (few Julia Quinn's aren't) but I'm not sure how much I will revisit the audio, if at all...

Voice was painfully, so high pitched

I am sorry, but I could not get passed the high pitch voice. It really was like watching a film full of swear words and told to ignore them and appreciate the film. Never got passed the first few chapters, so have no opinion of the story line.
