Publisher's Summary

Somewhere on the North Atlantic, 1820...
Rosalie Whitwell has spent most of her life sailing the globe with her adventurous father, dreaming of the day she can settle in one place long enough to have a home and family of her own. When her father suffers a fatal heart attack in the middle of the North Atlantic, Rosalie turns in her panic to a fellow passenger - the cool, reclusive Lord Deal.
For years David Linney, Marquess of Deal, has avoided the society of others. Even so, he's drawn to his lovely shipmate, like him, the victim of family tragedy.
As the voyage nears its end, Lord Deal is compelled to propose. But on their wedding night, Rosalie gets an unwelcome surprise: Her handsome husband is strangely reluctant to consummate the marriage. Does she fall short of her groom's expectations? Or is he hiding a secret past that only she can unlock?

A story with heart that is well read

This tale suffers from some of the flaws common to the genre, a sometimes slightly silly heroine and an inevitably drop dead gorgeous hero. Yet it rises high above them. In away the heroes outward strength, polish and urbane manners actually make the revelation of his demons all the more shocking. even the heroine's occasional silliness makes more sense than it usually does in these books. Her unconventional childhood and life as her father's young carer have made her at once more motherly and less sophisticated than most young women her age. It has imbued her with greater goodness and depth, yet also left her unconscious of her charms and somewhat naive.
There are some truly touching moments in the narrative and some genuinely sweet and funny conversations between characters.

Interesting twist.

What made the experience of listening to Lord of Secrets the most enjoyable?

I thought I knew what was going to happen and maybe I had an inkling but I didn't really believe it would be the case. The only thing that really disappointed me was the resolution came too quickly with out really dealing with the heroes feelings and the road he would have to travel. That said, it was a good story.
