Publisher's Summary

Lord Percy Nibley needs a wife, preferably before his mother’s nagging on the subject drives him to distraction. But being more comfortable with his rock collection than flirting, he’s not having a lot of luck.
 

In desperation, the shy nobleman enlists the help of Baron Marchmain - Lord August Bright. August is nothing short of dazzling. Charming, witty and amusing, he’s the darling of the ton, and a notorious heart-breaker.
 

August selects a suitable young lady for Lord Nibley; Miss Patience Pearson, a cool, level-headed woman, close to being on the shelf and with the reputation of a blue-stocking, meanwhile setting his own sights on capturing the heart of her vivacious younger sister, Caroline.
 

But Patience is not easily charmed, guarding her sister with the tenacity of a lioness and August must be at his most devastatingly charming to get past her defences.
 

Having finally done so, however...August isn’t at all sure he’s chosen the right sister.

Books 1-10

**Review's for books 1-10**
Narrator did a very good job giving life to all character's and distinguishing them.

Book 1- Very good story kept me riveted and engaged from start to finish and looking forward to more.
Book 2- Same as the first.
Book 3- Really loved this tale over the 1st and 2nd.
Book 4- So far this one is my most favorite amongst the 10 I've read. I absolutely adored Beau and Millie.
Book 5- This is where thing's start going south for me. I just loved Aubrey in the previous books but he was too young and submissive for my taste in this one. The whole story lacked EVERYTHING it's previous stories did. I also didn't like Violette.
Book 6- Was a chore and found Edward and Belle a bit boring and more wanting to know more about Clercy instead.
Book 7- Here's where I really get upset! Half or more of this book I had already read in book 6!! This is a huge pet peeve of mine when author's do this because we're not getting a FULL fresh book at all but still paying for something we've already bought!! UGH!! This story was beyond ridiculous also and I truly hated it. It left me mad and upset.  Gabriel was such a weak "hero" that I laugh at even thinking him to be considered one. He's actually the opposite of a hero. Clercy was portrayed too perfect and accepting, which I was expecting to see more, even a damn ghost or two but NADA!! Although I appreciated her blunt approach, she's just far too young and inexperienced to be so "perfect " which made this entire story just too far fetched and unbelievable.
Book 8- Again, another submissive Male which is a turn off and a female that's unremarkable. Predictable tale with nothing new.
Book 9- I enjoyed this one and hoped that the author found her lost mojo of bringing back the joy I found in the first few of the series.
Book 10- I was wrong because this was yet again a huge disappointment. I will stop here and save my money and time on finding another author.

Finding love

Absolutely love the story of August and Patience. August needed to find an Heiress to marry and thought he found the perfect one. But at time went on he realized it was her older sister Patience that he wanted.
When he realizes this is he to late to have the woman he loves. A beautifully written story and a fantastic narrator in Phillip Bartley.

A very weak link

Nibley is meant to be the Hero, helped along by a friend's friend. This help takes over the story as he tries to seduce the Heroine's sister. The story loosely links together, One Wicked Winter and The Devil May Care. However it feels forced and poor old Nibley gets totally sidelined.
I bought the book hoping to hear Nibley's story, but ended up with a "hotch-potch" of story, which spent alot of time in a parallel universe.
The characters act out of character and rules of the day.
Why set a book in a certain time period, then set the characters acting as though they are in the 21st century!!!!!! Stupid.

A delight to the senses.

I cannot sing the praises of Emma V Leech and Philip Battley too high, the story and narration keep me spellbound for hours.
Thank you Emma for the beautifully crafted story and Philip for the life you give the players with your voice.
