On a splendid August afternoon Susanna Osbourne is introduced to the most handsome man she has ever seen...?nd instantly feels the icy chill of recognition. Peter Edgeworth, Viscount Whitleaf, is utterly charming-and seemingly unaware that they have met before.

But the more he pursues, the more Susanna withdraws-until a sensual game of thrust-and-parry culminates in a glorious afternoon of passion. Now more determined than ever to keep her by his side, Peter begins to suspect that a tragic history still haunts Susanna. And as he moves closer to the truth, Peter is certain of one thing: He will defy the mysteries of her past for a future with this exquisite creature. All Susanna must do is trust him with the most precious secret of all...Contains mature themes.

"Rosalyn Landor's delightful performance successfully transports the listener to the country estates and assembly dances of Regency England. Lord Peter Whitleaf is a perfect gentleman, admired by all the ladies. Landor playfully renders his flirtatious nature but is also able to bring serious tones during times of introspection. Lord Whitleaf finds that it will take more than his charm to win the affections of schoolteacher Susanna Osborne. Landor tenderly portrays Susanna's guarded nature as she tries to come to terms with her painful past and open up her heart to love. Landor's narration flows nicely as her delivery evolves from formal tones to intimate familiarity. K.M.D. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
