Publisher's Summary

He's spent years scandalizing society.

Now, this rake must change his ways.

Society's most infamous scoundrel, Daniel Winterbourne, the Earl of Montfort, has been promised a small fortune if he can relinquish his wayward, carousing lifestyle. And behaving means he must also help find a respectable companion for his youngest sister - someone who will guide her and whom she can emulate. However, Daniel knows no such woman. But when he encounters a childhood friend, Daniel believes she may just be the answer to all of his problems.

Having been secretly humiliated by an unscrupulous blackguard years earlier, Miss Daphne Smith dreams of finding work at Ladies of Hope, an institution that provides an education for disabled women. With her sordid past and a disfigured leg, few opportunities arise for a woman such as she. Knowing Daniel's history, she wishes to avoid him, but working for his sister is exactly the stepping stone she needs.

Their attraction intensifies as Daniel and Daphne grow closer, preparing his sister for the London Season. But Daniel must resist his desire for a woman tarnished by scandal while Daphne is reminded of the boy she once knew. Can society's most notorious rake redeem his reputation and become the man Daphne deserves?

Okay read and great narration..

This book seemed like it was a lot more than 273 pages. I liked Daphne and Daniel, but the story did drag, and the word “rake” was used 150 times. We knew he was a rake so it wasn’t that necessary we were told 150 times, and that’s what my iPad said the count was for that word, like we might forget the first 75 times it was used. I liked Alice too. She was funny and quite clever. And, of course we have to have one, Tennyson was a complete unfeeling jerk. He deserved the beating Daniel gave him. Daniel’s uncle Percival was kind of a jerk, but you couldn’t help but like him. Overall, it was a long-winded romance that told us the same thing over and over again: Daniel was a rake. There was explicit sex in this and a couple of swearwords. As to the narration: Tim Campbell is a wonderful narrator. That’s the kind of narration we need instead of a female narrator who makes ALL the men sound like girls.

The power of Love!

Marvelous story...had me riveted to the end. I found myself laughing, screaming, and ultimately crying for happy. When Ms Caldwell writes stories such as this, all others should bow in honor. Did I like this novel?........DEFINITELY....and highly recommend it.
And,....only the magnificent narration of Tim Campbell could bring its richness to life!

Wonderful reunion story of childhood friends. Full of emotion, characterization, and a heartwarming ending. Actually I was in tears by the end. Wonderful reading by Tim Campbell as usual.

One of my favourite love stories.

This is my first ever Audiobook. Christi Caldwell has long been one of my favourite authors, in fact I have read every historical romance she's written, so when I was given the opportunity to review one of her books as an audiobook, I jumped at the chance.


The book is a friends to lovers love story, one of my favourite historical romance 'tropes' and, of course, it has the required happily ever after with a few twists along the way.

This version is brilliantly performed by Tim Campbell; I was amazed at how easily he seemed to slide between male/ female voices and the standard narration. It definitely added another welcome dimension to the listening experience.

I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review, but have since gone on to download another Christi/Tim audiobook as I enjoyed this one so much.

Entrancing!

I own other audiobooks by Christi Caldwell that Tim Campbell has narrated and I love them. Just like I love this one. Mr. Campbell does a phenomenal job at bringing both the hero and the heroine to life for me. I truly am immersed in the story.
