Summary

A duel. An ultimatum. An arranged marriage.

England, 1777

Will, Viscount Wingrave, whiles away his time gambling and bedding married women, thwarted in his wish to serve his country by his controlling father. 

News that his errant son has fought a duel with a jealous husband is the last straw for the Earl of Marstone. He decrees that Will must marry. The earl's eye lights upon Connie Charters, unpaid housekeeper and drudge for a poor but socially ambitious father who cares only for the advantage her marriage could bring him. 

Will and Connie meet for the first time at the altar. But Connie wants a husband who will love and respect her, not a womanizer and a gambler. 

Their new home, on the wild coast of Devonshire, conceals dangerous secrets that threaten them and the nation. Can Will and Connie overcome the forces against them and forge a happy life together?

Charming and great plot ...

this is a charming book with a GREAT TWIST ... and fun to listen to!

I very much enjoyed the story - as well as the the performance .... as we all know that the permanence of the reader either lures us into a great story or can destroy a great story...

#Jayne Davis wrote a Brilliant Book with a great twist and #Esther Wane brought the story to live .... WELL DONE BOTH!!!
