Publisher's Summary

American heiress Sophia Wilson leaves Old New York for a Season in London. Her goal: to marry into the English aristocracy and help improve her family's social standing in America. Sophia knows her marriage will be a business transaction - her father will provide a generous financial settlement in exchange for a title - but secretly, what she desires most of all is to marry for love.

Love is the last thing on James Langdon's mind. The darkly handsome Duke of Wentworth comes from a menacing past and has learned to avoid his passions at all cost. But his castle in the north is falling into disrepair and what he needs is a swift cash infusion, not to mention an heir. A business transaction with a beautiful American heiress seems the perfect solution.

All goes according to plan until James finds himself enchanted by his spirited new wife, who demands far more from him than the title of duchess. Sophia wants his heart, but his heart is hidden away, shrouded in the darkness of ominous family secrets. James will go to any lengths to protect the dukedom. Soon, he and Sophia must choose between the marriage they thought they wanted and the passion-filled union that could change them forever.

Gag

Way overly verbose and so incredibly BORING. Just ONCE I would like these supposedly independent women would actually BE independent. They all fold and let the jerk husband continue to be a jerk. This one is total pap. I am a huge fan of romance novels, but gag this one is just dreadful. Story is so beneath a great narration talent like Rosalyn Landor. Definitely returning this one. So disappointing.

I liked the book

I always enjoy the books that are narrated by Roslyn Landor. Her women sound like women and the men sound like men. The romance wasn't extremely over done which just fine. It took a while for James to shake off his ghosts! All in all I thought it was entertaining.

It was slow and repetitive

I didn’t love it and I didn’t hate it. It was long and extremely repetitive. Sophia makes her wants and needs known very plainly throughout the book and literally everyone ignores what she says or assumes she has a different motive. I don’t know, I just didn’t buy that. James is well meaning, clearly had a lot of baggage, but his heart and his actions rarely align. One minute he’s kind and the next he’s callus. This book is a one time read for me.

Just enough intrigue

Slow start but enfolded into a bit of a mystery with enough intrigue to make it interesting but not enough to call it a thriller that keeps you from getting enough sleep. Sex scenes were juicy but infrequent and did not monopolize the story. Realistic. I didn't care for the narrator, she did a fine job but her voice didn't add anything and was in fact somewhat comical for the male voices, seemed forced. Female voices didn't change enough from one character to another so sometimes it was hard to tell who was speaking. Overall I enjoyed the story and will read others by this author.

lacked energy. Needed more energy and bite.
Good characters, no enthusiasm, love the story
