Summary

Gina was forced into marriage with Camden, the Duke of Girton, at an age when she'd have been better off in a schoolroom than a ballroom. Directly after the ceremony, her spouse promptly fled to the continent, leaving the marriage unconsummated and Gina quite indignant.

Now she is one of the most well-known ladies in London and living on the edge of scandal....

Enjoyable audible book full of fun and frolics

A good story but sadly not very historically accurate. Too many anachronisms for my liking like a darts board in a pub 100 years before the game was invented.

Fun but flawed.

I enjoyed this book immensely because I enjoy Eloisa's style but I imagine it must have been one of her early works as it has several anachronisms in it that jar a little. However her characters and dialogue are always enjoyable and Justine Eyre's delivery is spot on. Definitely worth a listen.
