One duel could be considered a matter of honor, but three duels are attempted murder!
With enlightened society outraged at such reckless behavior among young noblemen, the prince regent orders Robert Whitworth, the earl of Tamdon's heir, and Lord Dominic Wolfe to end their dispute by allying their families through marriage. Whichever party refuses to comply will forfeit his lands and title.
Whitworth relishes the idea of sending his younger sister, Brooke, to his enemy's remote estate. He knows the Wolf will reject her as a bride, thereby losing his wealth and status. The Wolf, however, is determined to scare away the Whitworth chit. With dueling no longer an available means of destroying the man he abhors, he will be satisfied to see him lose his lands and title. But he doesn't expect his enemy's sister to be so resourceful or resilient.
Brooke Whitworth has been dreaming of her first Season in London, because she intends to win a husband who will take her far away from her unloving family. Instead she is being sent to the Yorkshire moors to wed a mysterious nobleman whose family is cursed and who has thrice tried to kill her brother. But there's no room in her heart for fear; this man is her means of escape. She will make him love her!

I listen to about one audiobook per week, many being romances. I am of the opinion that a book can be romantic, alluring and sexy without graphic sexual depictions or even actual physical contact for most of it if there is chemistry. There is no chemistry between these two whatsoever. Seriously, it was non-existent more than any other romance novel I have ever read. The story was more about a silly curse and what happened to the male lead character's sister. I honestly didn't care how it turned out and stopped listening with two hours left. If you want to be bored give it a shot.

Another great JL story
The story was good, I liked the characters and the way they interacted. I liked the way they were able to work on their relationship and that the entire thing was about them building a relationship, not about how it's a "push and pull tear apart" kind of thing just to get there. I liked the extras in the story, like the dogs and horses. I'm pretty good at being able to tell what's going to happen in a book, but there was a bit of a surprise that took me quite some time to see.
I do have to say that the narrator was not my favorite. She wasn't horrible, and definitely didn't make it an unpalatable story, however she was a little drab and didn't really have very many voices between characters. I just think it's how her voice is, not really her lack of ability. Like I said, not horrid, not great. Just mundane. I'd not seek her out, but if she was the narrator for another book I wanted to read, I wouldn't turn it away.
