Publisher's Summary

A vow to remain unwed and a bargain designed to find her a husband. What could possibly go wrong?

Elsie and her two best friends made a childhood vow to never marry.

But when Elsie begins her first season in London, her mother presents her with an irresistible bargain: if she says yes to each and every man's invitations and still remains unattached by the end of the season, she will receive her inheritance and become a free woman.

She is thrown into the spotlight by increasing attention in the newspaper gossip articles, and keeping her end of the bargain seems impossible - especially when her best friend's tyrant of a brother, Lord Cameron, begins to make advances that Elsie literally cannot refuse.

The gossip grows increasingly malicious, leaving destroyed reputations and broken homes in its wake, and Elsie can't seem to escape its focus. But it's her own blossoming feelings for Lord Cameron that pose the greater threat. If she can't keep him out of her heart, she's sure to compromise the bargain, break her vow, and lose her one shot at freedom for good.

Liked the book, reader was distracting

Clean romance, interesting storyline and character relationships. Overall, I enjoyed it. But, the reader seemed like she was trying to be whimsical while she read, she put awkward emphasis on some words or in the middle of some sentences, and she would over emphasize the end sounds of some words. She did do well with character voices and inflection within dialogue though, so once I got used to the way she read it wasn't so bad.

Boring!!!!

This book just dragged and dragged itself. I completed it only with the hope that It would get better. Never did. Even the end was BORING!

Disappointing

I like this author’s stories, but the narration was difficult to endure. The narrator’s accent was unusual, and her intonation is bizarre. I couldn’t get past the first chapter, so I can’t comment on the book itself.

I struggled, the narration was so extremely painful I had to increase the speed, I nearly sent this back but wanted to see what happened. The story was okay, however, I felt in the end there was so much left unfinished. I understand this is a series, however once I saw the same narrator is reading these I could not put myself through it.
