Summary

Orphaned at a tender age, Miss Louise Grant spent her life in servitude to care for her younger siblings. Now, no longer needed as a duchess' companion, Louise has procured employment in York. But on her last night in London, her reputation is shattered when the drunk and disorderly marquess mistakes Louise's room for his lover's.

Luke, the Marquess Graham, is determined to never torment himself again by daring to love. Stumbling into Miss Louise Grant’s room destroys his days of bachelorhood when he is pressured into marrying her.

However, the cold and distant marquess knows they'll never have a happy marriage; his new and fetching wife will never crack the protective barrier around his heart.

Trying to make the best of a bad marriage, Louise attempts to break through the icy visage of the marquess. But when misfortune strikes, and Luke reverts to his cold, distant former self, Louise is not willing to give up on the possibility of love.

After all, ice will melt when surrounded by warmth.

Loved it

Loved every second of it. I couldn't stop listening and when I had to I couldn't wait to get back to it. It was such a beautiful love story.
The narrator was very good. She's one of the few female narrators I have enjoyed listening to. Her male voices are also very good. Normally I prefer male narrators or a duo that narrate the dialogue according to the gender.
I purchased the next book in the series and realised that it's the story of Louise's best friend the Duchess. I would have preferred to have listened to it before this first one as I think book 2 should really be book 1. If I knew it was about Mary, the Duchess, I would definitely have read it before. I can't understand why this is book 1.

A Good Story with Great Narration

Stevie Zimmerman does a fabulous job of bringing characters to life.
When she has a good story to work with it make for a great listen.

There are some aspects of this book that are true to trope. A maidenly wallflower is accidentally compromised at a ball in front of an audience that means they must marry.

What makes this a little different s that she is not a debutante, but a companion, and therefore somewhere above a “servant” but below a “Lady”.

He, as usual is not interested in marriage or family or love.

There are some helpful side characters and a well told story.

It is an R rated romance, so it gets steamy.
