Summary

When a simple kiss is turned to scandal by a conniving mother, can a forced marriage transform two regretful hearts? 

Tall, dark, and brooding, the Viscount of Barnet stole Jane Milton's heart the day she saw him astride his black horse in the woods. When she learns of his upcoming trip to Brighton, she grasps at an opportunity to be a companion to an elderly woman there, in order to follow - er - accompany Lord Barnet to the seaside town. 

Mr. Philip Honeyfield has suffered the dreaded misfortune of inheriting a title. Ungainly and shy, how can he perform well in the eye of society? To navigate his new role, Philip seeks advice from an unlikely source. When he is smitten by his grandmother's new companion, Miss Jane Milton, his advisor offers one final piece of counsel: he must kiss her at the upcoming ball. 

But a moonlit kiss can be catastrophic when witnessed by a cunning mother, a marriage can be inconvenient when forced, and a woman's heart can be difficult to win when it belongs to another. Can an unexpected love conquer Jane's resentment and Philip's regret? Or will that simple kiss turn out to be his greatest misfortune of all?

Awful pronunciation ruins a reasonable story.

Ok but the pronunciation of English was appalling. it made it very difficult to concentrate on the story when you were wincing at yet another misspoken word.

Absolute favorite!!!

Miss Newbold provided question In a boy meets girl story. She paints the picture to make one believe the story would continue along with a typical narrative. Then, not only does the story leave you questioning which way it would go, but it also allowed you to see what happens after the tail unfolds. Good job!!! and thank you!!!

absolutely LOVED

I can't wait to reread this over and over. When they first married and things were tense I wasn't sure if I'd finish. it bugged me that she played him and he loved her so...but then ... did she ... or did she love him too? and that's what kept me listening and ah I loved how it unfolded. beautifully done. bravo❤️

I read the book’s narrator was not good but I can’t disagree more

I do love the book. I think the narrator is really good. She does voices really well and her speed, tone, and character interpretation is wonderful. I also do live the story. Finally a good story and plot without the language or situations that make me feel uncomfortable.
