Publisher's Summary

"I’m not holding you to keep you from leaving. I’m holding you because it’s a way of showing you how precious you are to me."

The wait is over! The anticipated Barefoot in Hyde Park is now available! Book two in The Hellion Club series.

Lillian Burkhart could not be more different from her half-sister Wilhelmina. Suspecting that she is more like their wastrel father, she struggles against the wildness inside her, trying desperately to be the proper young woman that Miss Euphemia Darrow has reared her to be. But when she’s discovered walking barefoot in Hyde Park by none other than the grandson of the elderly dowager duchess who employs her as a companion, her failure is complete. 

Lord Valentine Somers, Viscount Seaburn, has been playing a part for so long that he no longer recognizes himself. As a soldier, he’d risked life and limb. Now, as a spy for Whitehall, he’s risking his very soul by using his skill with cards to gain entry to circles he wants no part of. Feigning the ennui of a debauched dilettante who treats women and money as if they were both in unending supply, he’s immediately struck by the beauty, vivacity, and innocence of a lovely barefoot nymph, who happens to be his grandmother’s companion. 

Given an ultimatum by his grandmother, marry or be disinherited, Val offers for Lillian on a whim. And she accepts in order to claim her own familial bequest. But theirs isn’t a normal engagement - not when someone keeps trying to murder his betrothed. 

Uncertain if it has to do with Lillian’s inheritance, his own inheritance, or the enemies he’s made over the years, Val knows he will do whatever it takes to protect her, but he didn’t expect to fall in love with her.

I liked everything about this book

There was really nothing I did not like about this book. The pace was good, the dialogue was interesting, and the conflict between the hero and heroine was minimal. It was nice to listen to a story when the author allows the characters to behave as adults and actually communicate. I think that this i what I enjoyed the most. Lilian and Valentine were ALWAYS honest with each other and straight forward. This fact did not detract from the story and did not make it boring. or lack complexity. That just goes to show that prolonged conflict and lack of communication does not make a story more interesting but more frustrating in my opinion.

The narration was good. Her male voices were not as good as other narrators but it was not off putting.

The story was interesting, not too long and the characters were enjoyable.

You will not waste your time or credit with this one....

Pretentious with overdone narration.

I wanted something light and frothy but the narrator was irritating and the content nonsensical.
