Publisher's Summary

Listen to book two in Mary Lancaster's latest hit series, The Unmarriageable series!

Lady Cecily, a daughter of a duke, has a habit of getting into trouble. Perhaps it’s her natural curiosity or maybe, she likes excitement, especially where the notorious Lord Verne is concerned. When she’s mistaken for a hussy at the Hart Inn — by every fault of her own — staring at the handsome lord through a partially opened door in a private parlor and watching him out of her chamber window in the middle of the night — is it any surprise he abducts her? Of course, she foolishly imagines her rank and her identity are enough to protect her.

But her family name doesn't change Verne's mind, for he is still fascinated by Cecily.  

With her reputation hanging by a thread after spending the night in Verne's house, she's forced to make a fateful decision, face the consequences of her actions, which could mean utter ruin for her and her family, or agree to a fake engagement with the rakish lord.

Lord Verne has a tragic past and his own dark secrets to contend with, making him a bad match for the vivacious Cecily and her powerful family. But once the news of their "engagement" gets out, neither one of them is in a hurry to call it off.

Will they find their happily ever after with each other? Or will Verne's sinister past destroy everything?

The Sinister Heart

Book 2 of Mary Lancaster's wonderful series. A very handsome & intriguing Rake, haunted, by his own self inflicted pain, finally finds himself on a long & arduous journey toward unexpected love. There is saucy banter between characters, mystery, secrets, insecurities, and action found in The Sinister Heart. You won't want to miss this one! Mary Lancaster never disappoints. If you are fortunate enough to be a member of Audible or some other audio book player, Brian J. Gill is a super great narrator.

Engrossing

Great series love, mystery, good dialogue and we'll developed characters. The narrator is quite good but mispronounciation was a bit irritating.
