Summary

One woman catches his eye....

London, 1819. Four years ago, Darius, the earl of Redgrave, fled London two weeks before his wedding to Lady Mary’s sister and married another woman. Now a widower, he has returned to seek a new wife. 

At first, Lady Mary doesn’t recognize the handsome lord as the cad who ran out on her sister. After giving him the cut direct in a London ballroom, she finds herself running into him everywhere she goes and fighting a forbidden attraction. Not only has Mary sworn off men, Redgrave is so very wrong for her. But she cannot stop thinking of his kisses. Redgrave means to stay away from Mary, but it is impossible. Passion between two people who can never be together is a dangerous game.

another nice free book

I have enjoyed this series it all blends together so its best to listen from the start of the series but the books can be standalone.

The Earl’s return

Almost didn’t listen to this one but am glad I did. The title details made the Earl sound like a complete reprobate and stories of reformed persons of his ilk are generally too unbelievable. The twist in this story, however, was interesting and made you feel for the foolish man.

Not That Great

This wasn't that interesting to me. I took a break and totally forgot all about this book. When you put down a good book, you can't wait to get back to it.

Excellent series

Loved every book… this one was a great ending to a very entertaining series. Only disappointment is that it’s the last one. Narration was wonderful. Storyline was unique and well developed. Characters easy to like (or hate.)

Phenomenal read

I thoroughly enjoyed this read. I was so shocked on why he left her sister but this was so much worse than I expected. So sad what he went through.
I love all the sisters in this series.
I highly recommend this book.

Annoying Narration

I couldn’t get beyond the first couple chapters. The narrator clipped whining voice was too much to endure. A shame since I enjoy the authors.

Absolutely Loved!

I love this story and adore Redgrave and Mary. Definitely one of my top favorites in the series. I really enjoyed the Marriage Mart Mayhem series and am sad to be finished with it.

nothing to fault

good narration, nice story that ticks all the boxes. Unlike so many historical romances this romance is age appropriate and consensual and I don't recall any problematic behaviour. Quite refreshing, more like this please. I don't want to read anymore books about teenage girls and problematic 30 something men.

Nice series

Even better because it was free. The only thing I’d change would be a male narrator for the male parts

Just okay

The narrator did a great job, but her “male” voices are a bit too nasally for me to think of the male characters as young and attractive, which pulled me out of the story a few times. But she did an excellent job with the women’s voices, pacing, clarity, and pronunciation.

The story was okay. Not very exciting, but it was nice to see a few threats thrown around. The steamy scenes were not recycled wording from previous books, which was nice, but it felt like the book was maybe 30-45 minutes longer than it had to be.

Overall, a decent read if you want to close the series.
