Publisher's Summary

Step into a world of scandal, intrigue, and enthralling passion as New York Times best-selling author Mary Balogh sweeps us into the lives of an extraordinary family: the Huxtables. Margaret, the eldest, embarks on the most risqué adventure of her life and agrees to marry the most notorious man in London...

Only desperation could bring Duncan Pennethorne, the infamous Earl of Sheringford, back home after the spectacular scandal that had shocked even the jaded ton. Forced to wed in 15 days or be cut off without a penny, Duncan chooses the one woman in London in frantic need of a husband. A lie to an old flame forces Margaret Huxtable to accept the irresistible stranger's offer. But once she discovers who he really is, it's too late - she's already betrothed to the wickedly sensual rakehell. Quickly she issues an ultimatum: If Duncan wants her, he must woo her. And as passion slowly ignites, two people marrying for all the wrong reasons are discovering the joys of seduction - and awaiting the exquisite pleasure of what comes after...

    "Poor sound quality"

    Everything was fine but the sound quality of this file was pretty poor. Let's hope part 2 is better. 4/10

    "Best in the series so far"

    The first 2 books of the series dealt with the stories of the 2 Huxtable sisters: Katherine and Vanessa. We've also been introduced to the eldest sister Margaret (Meg) who sacrificed her happiness to fulfill a promise she made on her father's deathbed when she was only 17 years old to raise her brother and sisters until they reached maturity. As a result, she tells her sweetheart at the time, Crispin Dew, that she will wait for him to return to her when he finishes his military service, only to find out accidentally that he married someone else and did not even bother to inform her himself. Book 3 is Meg's story and I am delighted to say (after giving 3 stars to the last book) that it has been the best one in the series so far. Duncan was a great match for the self sacrificing, compassionate, honorable and level headed Meg. He was also a cynic who no longer believed in love but was seeking to marry out of necessity. Their first exchange is one of the highlights of the book and carries Mrs Balogh's traditional signature humor and sarcasm. The main theme of their story was trust and being faithful to one's conscience in my opinion. This book featured what I have always expected of Mrs Balogh: humor, exquisite dialogue, sarcasm and lots of heart. The 2 villains were somewhat one dimensional, but the secondary characters (grandfather, Duncan's mom, Sir Ingraham and Tobby) were very likeable and had a lot of depth to them. Stephen has also matured in this book and we are obviously being prepped for his upcoming story. Yet, I cannot wait for Constantine's book because he is the most complex character in the series. If you are reading Mrs Balogh, please give us Con's story. To audible listeners, download this book and enjoy. You won't be disappointed.

    "A JOY!"

    I am a big Mary Balough fan and love this series! I purchased this book first and have gone back and downloaded the others. The Huxtable's are worth hearing about in any order, and i enjoyed Anne Flosnik's narration a great deal. A lovely way to spend a rainy day!

    The book is really entertaining but made more so by the narrator. I always enjoy listening to Anne Flosnik.

    "Yawn"

    I love audio books, especially historical romances but this series is as dull as it gets. The narrator is boring and the story drags on so long that you lose interest before it finishes, *yawn*.

    "Thumbs up"

    I really enjoyed reading the first 2 books of this series, so I ventured to listen to this one. It is worth the listen, but I wonder if it is as good as the first 2 or if I was simply disappointed because I listened to it instead. I will still read or listen to the next and would still recommend this one.

    "Best so far and that is high praise!"

    I love this series and have listened to the two previous books thinking each one was wonderful. This one might be the one I like the most because it is truly full of lovely and loving characters. It is sweet and yet there are tough conflicts. Best of all I think is that there are big surprises in the plot. The issues and problems faced create just enough angst but get resolved beautifully. Enjoy.

    Any additional comments?

    This is the best of the series so far. It has one twist or turn one after the other. You think you know all the background to the story and then there is another revealed. Interesting right to the last word.
