Publisher's Summary

Rebecca Jennings’s first London Season has been absolutely ruined, and one person alone is responsible: Mr. Ben Fortescue. If her new neighbor hadn’t startled her, she would never have broken her ankle, leaving her bored and frustrated at home in the country while her sister enters the London Season alone. Although, it was rather gallant of him to carry her home.... 

For his part, Ben feels terrible about the role he played in Miss Rebecca Jennings’s accident. In the days that follow their first disastrous meeting, he finds himself inexorably drawn to the surprising young woman — first out of guilt and then out of a stirring affection. But Ben hides a secret: He has not been completely forthright about his identity or about the dark secrets of his past that would make it impossible for romance to blossom with Miss Jennings. Despite his love for her, he knows he must let her go. 

With her ankle finally healed but her heart now broken, Rebecca is left with little choice but to throw herself into the Season. With eligible men circling this late addition to the Marriage Mart, it seems that Rebecca will have no shortage of suitors. If only her heart were free to give.

Fine

The beginning of the story was somewhat slow, so hang in there. I enjoyed The Duke Meets His Match, so it was fun to see Susan and the duke from the previous book show up. There were some overly detailed moments such as how someone walked across the room, took off their hat, then removed their gloves, then gave them to the butler, who then put them on the side table, etc. We know these types of things happen, so don’t need the play-by-plays. There is also the sense that the writer doesn't trust us readers to understand or keep up, so there are often explanatory words after an action or comment, in case we didn't get the meaning. Show us rather than tell us. There are a few modernisms and scenes that probably wouldn't have happened in that age. The pace picked up in the second half, and interestingly, the writing seemed a bit better as well, which included a little humor and some delightful moments with spunk. I love the clean stories, so will continue to give this author a try. I know narrators are expensive and probably hard to find, but I would have loved a native speaker. Noah Wall is talented but a little heavy and exacting for regency. I think a lighter, more fluid tone would have given the book a better pace. Speeding it to 1.3 helped lighten the tone.

Narrating

I would like to suggest that in the future the narrator not be required to always read “she said” or “he said”.
In listening to a story where the conversation has been established between people it interrupts the natural flow of the conversation.
