Summary

Miss Maryann FitzWilliam is too witty and bookish for her own good. No gentleman of the ton will marry her, so her parents arrange for her to wed a man old enough to be her father. But Maryann is ready to use those wits to turn herself into a sinful wallflower.

When the scandal sheet reports a sighting of Nicolas Ives climbing out the chamber windows of a house party, Maryann does the unthinkable. She anonymously claims that the bedchamber belonged to none other than Miss FitzWilliam, tarnishing her own reputation - and chances of the dastardly union her family secured for her. Now she just needs to convince the marquess to keep his silence.

Nicholas Ives, marquess of Rothbury has purposefully cultivated a reputation as the most ruthless, unprincipled libertine, all so he can slip beneath the guards of those whose vile actions caused him to lose the only girl he's ever loved. Despite his intrigue, Nicolas is determined to ignore the deceitful and enticing Miss FitzWilliam. However, his enemies are drawing close, and he soon discovers he must keep her closer to protect her.

Contains mature themes.

The Narrator is a big problem.

The story had potential, but is first ruined by the narrator's peculiar and irritating style and weird pronunciations.
The Heroine's character is all over the place, she is spoilt, stupid, wanton, an innocent, a suffergett, a vengeful bitch and so on.
The Hero is meant to be mysterious, tough dark and ruthless, as he forefills his mission of revenge.
The other characters are over the top. Her parents need to sell her to the highest bidder, despite their claim to love her.
Her brother is indulgent, also loves her, but gives no support when needed.
The suitor is her father's friend, who is brutal and a womaniser, but needs an heir.
Finally the author admits sex, has a smell. However, it doesn't stop her having sex everywhere. Also her love of the male appendage is her signature.

To ruin a good book....

Choose a lousy narrator to whisper the book to you.

Definitely a couple of x-rated scenes.

Sinful wallflowers triumph again!

Loved the story

Loved everything about this book and count it high on a list of favorites. Some readers complain of narration but I’ve found speed to resolve most narration issues.

Great story

I loved the story, I enjoyed it so much I couldn't stop listening till the end. My only real problem is with the narrator.Between her whispery slow speech and unfortunate speech difficulty it became a little distracting.
The build up of antagonism to secert romance was wonderful. Maryann's sarcastic whit and Nicolas' brooding , sercert personality.were the perfect combination to make me want to listen till the end.

The narrator is horrible

I could only get to chapter 2 in this book because the narrator is so bad. She reads slowly and does awful voices for the men. It’s like a bad actress reading lines. It just comes across as silly.

Long

A very long book. It is a 4 star but could ha e shaved a few hours off and made it a tad more enjoyable. I felt like there was several hours of the mundane where the book was moving but not much happening. I listened to Audible version and the narrators female voice was slightly irritating. Also, the end was came to a halt without without details of Airianahs or Nicolas end conversation and the whole Crispon thing, well not much closer. It’s like finally when we got to the end the rushed the conclusion and cut it off. I know this may all sound negative, and truthfully it was a good book but not my favorite by this author.

Excellent read

I have to admit that I didn’t start this book expecting to like it as much as I did. Great story line. Kept me interested the whole way through. Intriguing and enticing. I hope she keeps up this style as not all of her other books have been so good. You won’t be disappointed.

Loved The Book & The Narrator

For all the other reviewers who didn't like the narrator Mary Sarah because of her breathy, sultry tone.... that's why I've loved her for years! There are many audio book readers/narrators/actors who are awful, even with a great book I will pass them by because of horrible voices. I have always sought out Mary Sarah Agliotta: Everything by Elisa Braden, Jillian Eaton, Annabelle Anders, and Sophie Darling read by MS. She is American and also reads clean Christian novels and traditional stories.

I can't stand Justine Eyre or Heather Wilds. I love Mary Jane Wells, Carolyn Morris, a few others, and yes, Mary Sarah.

I love stories about rogues and wallflowers. It heated up in the conservatory, then at his townhouse (where she sneaked in!) and was scorching hot at the end which I didn't expect. It's a keeper!
