Tall, dark, and exquisitely sensual, he is the epitome of male perfection. Not that Claudia Martin is looking for a lover. Or a husband. As owner and headmistress of Miss Martin's School for Girls in Bath, she long ago resigned herself to a life without love. Until Joseph, Marquess of Attingsborough, arrives unannounced and tempts her to toss away a lifetime of propriety for an affair that can only lead to ruin.
Joseph has his own reasons for seeking Claudia out. Instantly, irresistibly attracted to the dedicated teacher, he embarks on a plan of seduction that leaves them both yearning for more. But as heir to a prestigious dukedom, Joseph is expected to carry on his family's legacy. And Claudia knows she has no place in his world.
Now that world is about to be rocked by scandal. An arranged marriage, a secret that will shock the town, and a man from Claudia's past conspire to drive the lovers apart. But Joseph is determined to make Claudia his at any cost. Even if that means defying convention and breaking every rule for a love that is everything he has ever wanted - a love that is perfection itself.

I know it is a romance, but honestly!!
The hero was just not at all logical, his actions seemed totally random. The whole story would be avoidable if the hero would show even a tiny bit of sense. I wanted to hit him most of the time. He is 35, has avoided marriage until now and is now pressured into proposing to a woman he does not like in the least while in love with somebody else, give me a break!
Just could not get myself to even pretend that the story might have happened as told. I know it is a romance, but honestly, the whole conflict was completely ridiculous.
The little girl.
It was narrated by Rosalyn Landor, I have yet to listen to an audiobook narrated by her, no matter how weak the story, I have not listened till the end. She is so good!
If a story is set in the past one should not pretent the people could behave as they would today.
