Publisher's Summary

Fans of Netflix's Bridgerton series will adore this stunning historical romance debut, where a wary wallflower enters a fake engagement with one of London's most eligible bachelors.

The one woman in London who doesn’t want to marry him is now his fiancée.

William Atherton, earl of Norwood, is as shocked as the rest of London to discover his betrothal via an announcement in the morning paper. Furious at what appears to be a shrewd marriage trap, William tracks down his alleged fiancée before her plans can affect his campaign for a coveted political post. But then William realizes an engagement, however fake, may benefit them both....

Miss Charlotte Hurst may be a wallflower, but she’s no shrinking violet. She would never attempt such an underhanded scheme, especially not with a man as haughty or sought-after as Norwood. Yet his suggestion to play along with the betrothal has its merits...and the longer they pretend, the more undeniably real their feelings become. But when the true culprit behind their engagement is revealed, can their newfound happiness survive the scandal?

Wonderful!

If I could give it 10 stars I would. This story was such an absolute joy , the narrators voices were perfectly modulated. The interaction between the Earl and the young lady were spunky, playful just lovely. Everything about it shines, if I go any further there will be spoilers!

Thoroughly enjoyed this light and lively novel!

The performance made listening to the book that much more enjoyable. Great job selecting the actors.

Good first book… very slow burn

4 stars because while I loved the opening and the build between Charlotte and William, Charlotte’s inflexibility and the rushed ending didn’t give me a chance to enjoy the conclusion as much as I would have liked. Still very good, but could have been amazing.

Okay…just okay

Narrators did a good job, but I would give the storyline and writing a solid “C.” Not a bad book, but not a great one.
