Painfully shy Jane Huxley is the furthest thing from a diamond of the first water. Bookish, bespectacled, and, well, plain, she never expected to befriend a dissolute charmer like Colin Lacey, much less agree to help him retrieve a lost family heirloom. Fortunately, he is nothing like his cold, rigid older brother. Unfortunately, he is not above deception if it means winning a wager. And that puts Jane in a most precarious position. For Harrison Lacey, the Duke of Blackmore, protecting his family honor is not a choice, it is a necessity.

It took a while to get to grips with the story. The story line was a little disjointed. Overall worth listening to. There was no idea of attraction but duty to the marriage. Then suddenly it is about attraction on the Dukes part. When you have finished you feel it would have been better if certain aspects of the story were more thought out

Alistair Mabry, Marquess of Rexton, fought his way to respectability. Now the most eligible bachelor in London, marriage-shy Rexton will take only a wife with an impeccable reputation, good breeding, and a penchant for staying out of the gossip sheets. But when he strikes a deal to be seen "courting" a sweet young debutante whose notorious older sister has blemished her chances for marriage, Rexton is unexpectedly drawn to the highly inappropriate, calamitous Tillie, Lady Landsdowne herself.

I loved this book as it portrays many of the obstacles and adversities of the result of the abuse of women. The problems are no different than what happens in the 21st century. It is not a portrayal through rose coloured glasses but still tastefully intertwined with a love story.

Women rarely refuse the wicked Earl of Hepplewood, whose daring exploits are only whispered about. But when his new governess answers his proposition with a slap, then stalks out, references in hand, Hepplewood finds more than his face is burning. Isabella Aldridge has brains, bravado, and beauty - but the latter is no use to a servant. Her circumstances are desperate, and with Hepplewood's words ringing in her ears, Isabella realizes she must barter her most marketable asset…her body.

Found a lot of these romantic fiction repetitive but this definitely catches the imagination from the storyline. It gives a great insight into old England and what had to be done to survive in that era. It can be explicit but the story shines through.

I had listened twice to this book and it was very funny, good storyline and captured your vision of what Egypt was like. It was full of little twists and turns to keep the listener Interested. Very well narrated.

You're not supposed to want the one who torments you. When my stepbrother, Elec, came to live with us my senior year, I wasn't prepared for how much of a jerk he'd be. I hated that he took it out on me because he didn't want to be here. I hated that he brought girls from our high school back to his room. But what I hated the most was the unwanted way my body reacted to him.
