Summary

Lieutenant Lucien Jones, son of a viscount, returned from war, to find his wife and child dead. Blaming his father for the commission that sent him off to fight Boney's forces, he was content to languish at London Hospital - until offered employment on the Marquess of Drake's staff. Through his position, Lucien found purpose in life and is content to keep his past buried.

Lady Eloise Yardley has loved Lucien since they were children. Having long ago given up on the dream of him, she married another. Years later, she is a young, lonely widow who does not fit in with the ton. When Lucien's family enlists her aid to reunite father and son, she leaps at the opportunity to not only aid her former friend, but to also escape London.

Lucien doesn't know what scheme Eloise has concocted, but knowing her as he does, when she pays a visit to his employer, he knows she's up to something. The last thing he wants is the temptation that this new, older, mature Eloise presents; a tantalizing reminder of happier times and peace.

Yet Eloise is determined to win Lucien's love once and for all - if only Lucien can set aside the pain of his past and risk all on a lady's heart.

"Vice-count", seriously??

While i enjoyed the story and writing very much, Hugh Bradley's mispronunciations of words essential to any Regency Romance had me gritting my teeth to make it to the end. He is basically an enjoyable Reader so I don!t understand why his blunders are so bad.

Too many Vices to count, I give up!

With only 3 more hours to go and after suffering through 47 excruciating “Vice Counts”, I give up and go roll in the snow instead. A mediocre sob story about a stalker chick fixating her unwanted attentions on a childhood friend and the trauma drama that ensues makes this one of the memorable disappointments by Ms. Caldwell.

Why?

Why offer WhysperSync for bk#2 but NOT this bk#1!?! You peoples have been in this business long enough that you should know how to get it consistent to ensure customer satisfaction.

A fine performance by Hugh Bradley. This is the first book I have listened to him narrate and I like his voice very much. He does a good job of playing each character.

Christi gives us another compelling series. The book review is on Amazon.

didn't finish

I don't know why exactly but this was a hard listen. I didn't finish it. maybe I'll revisit later. It seemed the history took too long to explain and still disconnected.

Learn to pronounce "viscount"!

This narrator pronounced it "vice-count" every single time. Started out funny and got to be annoying. Only the worst of several mispronunciations.

enjoyable, but.....

Would someone please tell the reader of this book that the “s” in viscount is silent?

This was a deeply emotional book

This book was deeply emotional. I was glad for the story about this prior character, as I hoped his ending would not be what we were left with in the prior series. Fantastic book.

Revolving cycle of angst

I made it about half-way through (despite distracting mispronunciations) and just couldn't go any further. It was like the same chapter repeated over and over with the main characters wallowing in their angst with minor plot events thrown in to make it sound different. Ugh. Just couldn't stomach another minute.

tedious.

I can't beleave I listened to the entire book, I just hoped it would get better. Full of drivel, endless running on about failure, unworthiness, & father/son emotions. Tedious!
