Everyone thinks Andrew Tilmore, Lord Preston, the financial prodigy dubbed "The King of Threadneedle Street," has it all, but he wants the one prize money can't buy: His childhood sweetheart.
Alysia Villier can't say if it's worse having Andrew's father in control of her inheritance or Andrew in control of her heart. He's ruined her for any other man, but she simply can't give in to him. She knows he's destined for great things - marrying a courtesan's daughter would jeopardize everything he stands for.
Keeping Alysia out of trouble and away from eager suitors becomes a cross-continental quest for Andrew, and he won't be stopped by his old-fashioned family or the disapproval of the ton. After all, he's a man with the power to play newspapers and investors like pawns, tumble world markets and incite riots...but can he win the biggest gamble of his life?

What made the experience of listening to The King of Threadneedle Street the most enjoyable?
It had a beginning and ending. No cliffhanger
Who was your favorite character and why?
Alysia drove me crazy at times. But, at the end it all worked out.
I loved Andrew's grandmother, she was great, no can mess with her. No-scene type of women.
What about Heather Wilds’s performance did you like?
Heather did an amazing job!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The entire book was entertaining.

Wouldn't waste the credit
Some of this was interesting just because it tied into the first story, but overall was kind of lame. Most of the characters were OK, but the story got old fast. There was not a lot to hold my interest and I found my mind wandering. I kept with it because I was interested in the fates of the various characters, many from the first book, but I would not recommend this book.
I gave it a 2 overall because I didn't want to knock the narrator. She was fine.
