Unwilling to settle, Mellie will do anything to escape to London... Trevor Anaedsley's grandfather has cut off his funds until he gets engaged. Beset by creditors, Trevor escapes to the country-ostensibly to visit his old tutor Mr. Smithson-where he meets Smithson's lovely daughter Mellie. The obvious solution is suddenly before him-but will this fake engagement go as Trevor and Mellie plan? Or will they find that even the best laid plans often go awry?Contains mature themes.

"Delivering a plot that swings wildly between comedy and melodrama, narrator Charlotte Anne Dore skillfully creates a unique and easily distinguished voice for each character, even the most minor. Mellie Smithson wants far more than life in the country and her science experiments but has no way to obtain it. Trevor Anaedsley, grandson to a duke, needs to become engaged in order to regain access to cut-off funds. Together, the two hatch an unlikely plan that will--theoretically--benefit them both. Complications of class differences add further interest, and serve to highlight Dore's talents as narrator. K.M.P. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
