Summary

In a "splendid Regency-set debut" for fans of best-selling authors Sarah MacLean, Lenora Bell, and Kerrigan Byrne, the rogue who once ruined Lady Charlotte's reputation is now the only one who can save her (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

For exactly one season, Lady Charlotte Wentworth played the biddable female the ton expected - and all it got her was society's mockery and derision. Now she's determined to be in charge of her own future. So when an unwanted suitor tries to manipulate her into an engagement, she has a plan. He can't claim to be her fiancé if she's engaged to someone else. Even if it means asking for help from the last man she would ever marry. 

Ethan, Viscount Amesbury, made a lot of mistakes, but the one he regrets the most is ruining Lady Charlotte's reputation. Going along with her charade is the least he can do to clean the slate and perhaps earn her forgiveness. Pretending to be in love with the woman he's never forgotten is easy. What isn't easy is convincing her to give him a second chance.

Critic reviews

"Everything I adore in a Regency - wit, steam, and heart!" (Grace Burrowes, New York Times best-selling author)

"In [a] splendid Regency-set debut...Bennett turns a spotlight on the class distinctions and gender restrictions of 1819 England, with a formidable leading lady and a swoon-worthy hero with lower-class roots. Filled with gripping drama, strong characters, and steamy seduction, this tantalizing story is sure to win the hearts of Regency fans." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

Sweet and steamy. Can’t wait for more.

Sweet and steamy debut novel and start to what is sure to be a great series. Loved the build up of the Hero and Heroine’s relationship from enemies to friends to lovers. Halfway through was already looking forward to Lord Carlisle’s story. Looking forward to more from this author.

At Once Classic and Unexpected

This story of redemption and triumph was well crafted, the banter quick and the emotions deep. Secondary characters added depth and the main characters were realistic. I loved Lottie’s willingness to reconsider long-held beliefs and goals. Ethan was steadfast and lovable. The plot took a few unexpected turns, but felt familiar to a lover of historical romance. The narration was generally good, though there were a few spots where the sound changed and it distracted from the story.

Perfect match of voice and story

This audiobook has everything I was looking for in a romance. The dashing hero, the headstrong heroine and the narrator’s beautiful accent and tone all added to a wonderful listening experience. It was just the escape I was looking for!

Horrible

This is my first time reading this author and it will be my last. The story had such promise, but it went nowhere fast. There is a scandal in the past between the H/H. They meet suddenly at an inn. They have one confrontation and then when they meet a few days later in London they become friends. There is no tension and no trying to reconcile with some effort on the part of either of the characters. A 7 year issue is cleared up in 7 minutes...what?? Many of the chapters start with "one week later". Not sure why time has to move without any story to move the reader along. So many activities are referenced as a past event, instead of the author letting the reader be in the event. The story is so contrived. The H/H just happened to end up in London and living beside each other....really!! They become friends and when she has an overeager would be fiancé , the heroine asks the hero to fake an engagement...of course. It goes on from there as a series of the standard regency historical scenes: 1 the fiancé tries to take liberties and acts the villan ( he also stops in a park and just decides to urinate by a tree..how romantic) 2 the heroine wants to experience pleasure and of course the fake engagement makes that easy ( she also finds a book in the library on how to perform oral sex....yes, you guessed it, they have oral sex everywhere. One scene where this "large Scot" hides under her skirt on the balcony of a ball...wow) 3 Their fake engagement requires an engagement ball ( it turns out to be a masquerade ball and she is dressed as a shepardess….check another box in the regency checklist of activities) 4 The dialogue is missing if not terrible ( They decide to make the engagement real . He says "are you sure"..she says " I think so"....how romantic) 5 (added while writing this review) The heroine is abducted by the spurned wouldbe fiancé....I can guess what is going to happen...the hero acts like a hero and rescues her. I can add that as its a given!! This is just a checklist of the standard things. Riding in the park, a woman that likes to where breeches, funny chaperone, ices at Gunther's, heroine hates going to the dress-maker, father that does not believe in the heroine, carriage accident.....it's all been done before and better. I would not worry with this one and just reread a better book. The narrator does nothing for the poor quality of the writing. The hero sounds more like a woman than the heroine. When she does a poor Scottish accent, her voice goes a little higher. Her reading is without emotion. She has a lovely voice,but does not perform this novel, but really, what is there to perform. And a great narrator like R Landen would be wasted on this book. Not great, just a light meander to the end, but still a waste of time and money. I saw some of the reviews and can't understand how this could have a good critic's review, as it's a lot of nothing.
