The Roxtons are back! Romance. Drama. Intrigue. Family secrets. There's never a dull moment for the 18th century's first family.
Widowed and destitute, Lady Mary Cavendish is left with only her pride. Daughter of an earl and great-granddaughter to a Stuart King, family expectation and obligation demands she remarry. But not just any man will do; her husband must rank among the nobility. Falling in love with her handsome and enigmatic neighbor is out of the question. As always, Mary will do her duty and ignore her heart.
Country squire Christopher Bryce has secretly loved his neighbor Mary for many years. Yet he is resigned to the cruel reality they are not social equals, and thus can never share a future together. Never mind that his scandalous past and a heartbreaking secret make him thoroughly unworthy of such a proud beauty.
Then into their lives steps a ghost from Mary's past, whose outrageous behavior has Mary questioning her worldview and Christopher acting upon his feelings, and for all to see. The mismatched couple begin to wonder if in fact love can prevail - that a happily ever after might just be possible if only they dare to follow their hearts.
Fans of the series will also delight in being reacquainted with the fascinating, always surprising, and never ordinary members of the Roxton family.

A Wonderful, Emotional, Exciting Story.
Oh yes I would and will listen to this book again. Why? Because the story is beautiful, the characters believable, the romance palpable, and the narration SMOOTH PERFECTION.
This book like every other of this author's books, has the perfect amount of the romantic element, yet has excitement from other intrigue, in this instance treason. The era they are set in is wonderful, but there is also a plethora of sub plots that keep you intrigued from beginning to end of each book. There is never a dull moment. The characters are all discussed in-depth, and you can't help but love the good ones, and either pity or despise the bad ones. Mary and Christopher are the perfect loveable characters in this book, and seeing their romance develop was so heart warming.
Such an unfair question because Alex performs each and every character to perfection. I have never heard a narrator that can sound perfect performing every voice from a little girl's voice to a gruff old man's voice. Christopher's voice is deep and sexy, especially during the intimate scenes, but if I have to pick a voice that really impresses me...it would have to be Antonia Roxton. The accent, the femininity, it's just wonderful, and for a man to be the one to peform it to perfection is very impressive.
Absolutely, there were some very emotional parts to this book. Not only ones that made me teary eyed, but there were some fun laugh out load moments too. That's one of the great things about Lucinda Brant's books, they are filled with excellent characters, exciting story lines, and you can't help but run the gamut of emotions throughout. Having Alex perform the book as well adds that extra element, he makes each emotional scene that little more real and believable. I can't say enough good things about the perfect pairing of a Lucinda Brant book with Alex Wyndham as it's narrator.
Never say no to listening to a book by Lucinda Brant narrated by Alex Wyndham. It's a partnership too good to miss.
