Summary

She needs a champion. He needs one less person to worry about.

Selena Lockhart comes with neither fortune nor connections, and she knows better than to expect society to give her a welcome — especially after her father gambled away his fortune, precipitating the family’s sudden fall from grace and Selena’s betrothed to break off the engagement. It therefore comes as no surprise that her new neighbor, Sir Lucius, treats her with disdain. Why should he look beyond appearances when her own promises so little? 

Sir Lucius Clavering is not married, but he may as well be, considering he is expected to escort his widowed mother to watering holes, round out the numbers at his married sister’s dinners, and come to the aid of his scapegrace younger siblings. It doesn’t help that single women and matchmaking mamas jostle each other for his face, fortune, and title so that he’s left without a moment’s peace. 

When Selena shows up at Lucius’s doorstep looking for help, he is sure it’s another ploy aimed at cutting up his prized bachelor existence. Although his prejudice does not last long, Lucius fears his first reaction might have ruined his chances with her. How can he save her from society’s teeth when she continues to hold him at arm’s length?

Could have been better

It's a good story if not brilliant but some of the grammar was really clumsy. Period terms and expressions were not always used appropriately. 'Forelock' instead of 'fetlock' was amusing.
The narrator did a good job. I would rate this 3.5 stars.

Stevie Zimmerman is an automatic purchase....

.... for me. If it’s my genre of the moment and the description is even half entertaining I buy it! In this case it was well worth it. No spies or sex or horrible scenes, just a good regency romance narrated by one of my favorites! If you remember it’s a romance and don’t take it too seriously you can’t go wrong here.

Heroine is horrible!

The heroine in this story is selfish, arrogant and a stuffy snob. There is nothing endearing about her. Horrible story.

Great build to a romance that leaves me craving the next in the series! Believable Regency finance.

Loved it.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. It's squeaky clean, romantic, and interesting. The leading mail character is as masculine as they come and I especially LOVED the ending. I hate how so many books and movies end abruptly, but this is refreshing and fun! I would love to see it made into a movie.
