Lady Georgina Hawthorne has worked tirelessly to seal her place as the Incomparable for her debut season. At her first London ball, she hopes to snag the attention of an earl.
With money and business connections, but without impeccable bloodlines, Colin McCrae is invited everywhere but accepted nowhere. When he first encounters the fashionable Lady Georgina, he's irritated by his attraction to a woman who concerns herself only with status and appearance.
What Colin doesn't know is that Georgina's desperate social aspirations are driven by the shameful secret she harbors. Association with Colin McCrae is not part of Georgina's plan, but as their paths continue to cross, they both must decide if the realization of their dreams is worth the sacrifices they must make.

"Because of the Narrator - it's terrible!"
I think anyone who READS this book rather than listening to it would enjoy it.
I only listened to the first 3 chapters, so not much. I had hoped it would be wonderful, like the last one.
She sounded as if she were reading, rather than telling a story. And the words didn't flow.
n/a - no scenes, only the narrator.
If you listened to the first book in this series, don't waste your time with this one - it will be a huge disappointment.
"Loved the story!"
Captivating, sweet, tender, inspiring and delightful, even though the narration was a bit slow. I recommend this book without hesitation.
"Narrating gets better"
The narrator wasn't the best at the beginning of the book, but it improved drastically as the store progressed. This was a sweet story which had be both loving and hating Georgina equally and the pace of the story moved along at a good speed. It was a nice listen overall.
I loved the first book in this series. I've listened to it at least 4 times! I Crack up every time. While the first book has the intrigue and somewhat of a comedic aspect, this one is on a more serious note. A good portion of this book soinds very familiar to the first at many of the situationsvare repeated, but told from the view ponts of the main characters in this book. It does seem a bit repetitive, but I really enjoy how this story makes you rethink how you viewed the characters in the first book...it really left me thinking!
I love the narration of the first book so much I was really hoping this one would be similar...it's not my favorite, but I think the book overall hold up and is worth the listen...I'll probably end up re-listening to this one too!
"Good Book, Terrible Narration"
She was very choppy and I constantly found myself distracted from the story because her narration was so poor! I am thoroughly disappointed to find that she narrated the third book as well given how poor her performance was in this book.
The story itself is pretty good and I would recommend it to other listeners. Just be aware that the narrator ruins the story just a bit and the experience will not be as good as the first book because of this.
With our world in such turmoil, this book was a reminder of the importance of God's word and direction for our lives. He is the same yesterday, today and forever!
"subpar narration, great story."
The narrator was clearly not British and struggled with both the English and Scottish accents. However, if one is able to get past that obvious flaw, the story was delightful - perfect light reading.
