Esther Whitton has gladly spent the last few months enjoying the quiet calmness of a Yorkshire winter, devouring books and attempting to keep herself from falling for a man she knows she can never have. But when her Great-uncle Danby announces they're all going to London for the season, she decides it's time to step out of her comfort zone and follow her heart before it's given away to another.
Timothy Hargood knows his place is in servitude, and therefore pining after a woman destined to be the wife of a peer is completely pointless. But when she makes the first advances, how can he resist?
Star-crossed from the start, this unlikely pair must try to find a way to be together, even if it means thwarting the all-powerful Duke of Danby to do so.

Narrator mumbles. I have exceptionally good hearung, and I listen while driving, as do many others. I understood about 1/8 of the words. In places, her voice dropped so low that I had to turn the volume ALL the way up, repeat the passage, and then turn it down some. She talks way too fast, as well. I really can't judge the story, because I have no idea what was said. After 5 chapters of struggling, I gave up.
A scandal indeed!
A charming tale of love across the boundaries—
will there is a happy ending?
Love the narrator.
