Once upon a time there were three young ladies who, despite their fortunes, had been on the marriage mart a bit too long. They were known as A??the Spinster HeiressesA? . . .
Miss Cassandra Holwell is too tall, too bookish, and too smartA??but she does have money and a father who wants a grand title for her. Cassandra hasnA??t felt a desire to marry until she meets the sinfully handsome Duke of Camberly, who captures her imagination . . . until Soren York, Earl of Dewsberry and her familyA??s sworn enemy, steps in the way.
The Holwells ruined SorenA??s family, and heA??s lived on the knifeA??s edge trying to resurrect their fortunes . . . until he considers marrying the Holwell Heiress. Not only would her dowry give him the funds he needs, he has secretly had an eye on the independent-minded bluestocking since they both first realized the differences between men and women.
She likes to read; he has no patience for books. She knows little of sex; he is a man of the world and willing to school her. Her family destroyed his; his offer of marriage may be her only salvation.
Now Cassandra and Soren must learn to love each other for who they are, not what they areA??and the lessons are becoming an exercise in absolute pleasure.

"Narrator Mary Jane Wells, with her distinctive British voice and supreme knack for performance, delivers a beautiful historical romance with enough twists to keep the listener ensnared to the end. Spinster heiress Cassandra Holwell remembers Soren York from childhood but knows the now-grown Earl of Dewsberry must marry for money. When an inconvenient series of circumstances sends them to the altar to save her reputation, Cassandra is forced to face hidden truths that will require her to trust the husband she is still getting to know. Wells turns the story into an auditory feast with her exemplary ability to expand and contract the tension of each scene with inflection and tone that listeners will want to savor. A.L.
