"Narrator Mary Jane Wells brings warmth and humor to this second volume of Maxwell's trilogy, creating genuine emotional connections with the characters. Lady Charlene Blanchard is a penniless orphan who lives with her aunt and whose only hope for a better life is to marry a wealthy man. Jack Whitridge is the long-estranged brother of a duke, the very same duke who happens to be courting Char, and whom she really ought to marry. Except that she doesn't love him. She loves Jack--impossible, penniless, unsuitable Jack. A myriad of believable accents from a variety of walks of life (the ton, street urchins, Americans) helps to ground this story and maintain its charm. K.M.P. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
