Publisher's Summary

What will you discover when you read between the lines?

Jeffrey Althorpe is in need of more income for the struggling Sommers barony. As a peer of the realm, he's not allowed to work, but if he's able to earn money from a book he's written - anonymously, of course - no one will be wiser. A dowry would be easier, but then he would have to find a woman willing to marry a baron.

While her brother, the Earl of Everly, is away on one of his lengthy expeditions, Lady Evangeline is left behind in London to spend her days creating exquisite embroideries and reading books. She's about to buy The Story of a Baron at The Temple of Muses when Lord Sommers suddenly appears. He's intent on buying the very same book, but there's only the one copy.

Desperate to discover what changes his publisher might have made to his story - without letting on he's the author - Jeffrey suggests they read it together. Evangeline's sterling reputation could use a bit of scandal, she decides, and so she agrees to Lord Sommer's proposal.

As the two read The Story a Baron, Evangeline realizes some of the characters and settings are just a bit too familiar. And a bit too close to home. Was she the inspiration for the baron's secret love, a bold, brash woman whose reputation is in tatters?

With her own reputation suddenly in question, Evangeline finds her life imitating art. How can the book have a happy ending when she wishes she'd never purchased The Story of a Baron?

    "I tried but just couldn't finish it- Don't do it!"
    Any additional comments?

    This was so hard to listen to that I actually gave up. Never really done that before.( I listen to over 420 audiobooks)
    I can't tell you if it is the story or the narration or the combination of both.
    I can tell you the narration and production are bad!

    Story:? Not sure, couldn't finish but it seemed to be a skeleton story as a frame for sexual thoughts and acts, basically boring.
    Narration: bad.
    Overall: don't do it!!! You have been warned

    Story
    "Excellent and Different"

    This has been a very interesting story, in fact, two stories running side by side. What a novel and clever idea.
    Very well written and easy to read. Lots of good laughs and an intriguing plot. Held my attention throughout.
    I've found another very talented author and narrator. Thanks for the entertainment!
    I recommend this book/audio book.

    "A Book Within a Book"
    What did you love best about The Story of a Baron?

    I liked the fact that the story line of the book characters were so similar the the real lives of Jeffrey and Evangeline. Pretty good for a first book from a Baron.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked Jeffrey best, I usually love the main male hero. From the first I thought he was a good guy with a good heart, and he tried to be a gentleman, not much of a rake, as many are. Not that I don't love the rakes also.


    What does Michael Troughton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He did a fantastic job. His voice seemed to match the age of the main characters. I liked the-deep-in-the-well voice when leading into the book characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
