Publisher's Summary

Fiona Amberly is more intrigued by the Roman ruins near her manor house than she is by balls. When her dying grandmother worries about Fiona's future, Fiona stammers that she's secretly engaged. Soon she finds herself promising that she will introduce her husband-to-be by Christmas.
Percival Carmichael, new Duke of Alfriston, is in a hurry. He's off to propose to London's most eligible debutante. After nearly dying at Waterloo, he's vowed to spend the rest of his life living up to the ton's expectations.
When Fiona tries to warn a passing coach about a tree in the road, the driver mistakes her for a highwaywoman. Evidently he's not used to seeing women attired in clothes only suitable for archaeology, waving knives. After the driver flees, Fiona decides she may as well borrow the handsome passenger....

Great narrator, disappointing story

The wonderful narration by Rosalyn Landor definitely rated 5* as always, however the content rated only 3*. It had potential; a returning soldier - promoted by default to a dukedom and who has lost a leg in the peninsula wars and an unusual girl; unorthodox, apparently unmarriageable with wild, bright red hair and a passion for archaeology. The premise interested me but I was disappointed as at times the story descended into the farcical and I found it difficult to concentrate. The talented Rosalyn Landor did her best but the unbelievable storyline let it down overall.
