Summary

Millie Ashton thinks London society is full of empty headed, arrogant fools, but when she meets Alex Radley she falls desperately in love with him. Fearing humiliation and rejection, she decides the only sensible thing to do is take her pride and go home to India. Men like Alex do not fall for girls like her, whereas every girl loses her heart to Alexander the Great. Alex Radley, Marquess of Brooke rules the ton like a god, but even gods are known to fall for mere mortals. With his wealth and title, wooing Millie should be an easy task. But when his passionate love letter to her goes astray, Alex’s life becomes more than a little complicated.

A wonderful plot

I enjoyed this audio book which had a wonderfully twisted plot but it was spoilt by the narrator trying so hard to do an authentic English accent. It was much to clipped which sometimes lost a lot of the dialogue and pronounced English words incorrectly. Can I just point out that powerful people in that period did not get up to cold rooms, they had maids who came up at the crack of dawn to set their fires.

not for me

I cared very little for any of the characters who are all very flat and predictable. The conversations between them feel forced and unbelievable. The problems in the story are very minor compared to the over reactions of the characters. over all not a book worth the money or time. The voice was pleasant and nice to listen to Most likely the only reason I finished the book.
