After the death of her father, Georgiana Hartley returns home to England - only to be confronted with the boorish advances of her cousin. Knowing no one, she flees to Dominic Ridgely's estate, hoping the nobleman will bestow a neighborly kindness upon her.

The viscount hears Georgiana's plea to find her a position as a lady's companion with barely concealed ill humor. A lovely innocent such as Miss Hartley subjected to that wretched existence? The very idea is preposterous. Instead, he takes matters into his own hands, introducing her to his sister's influence.

Suddenly Georgiana is transformed into a lady, charming the ton and cultivating a bevy of suitors. Everything is unfolding according to Dominic's plan...until he realizes that he desires Georgiana for his own. Download and start listening now!

    " This is a good book, nothing outstanding but a nice read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Liz | 2/11/2014

    " I probably only finished this because I had it in audio and enjoyed Polly Lee's narration (and only read it in the first place because my library has a limited range of romance on audio). It was very silly, with an idiotic ingenue heroine and a smug ass of a hero who was quite a bit older. They fall in love (why, who knows) but are kept apart by a series of small misunderstandings by the idiot. Kind of interesting to read Laurens before all her writing tics are fully developed. "

    " They are gettin better. I liked this one because the HEA wasn't so lost in the whole love game. On to the next! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Lady Raven RAVE! | 1/31/2014

    " i don't care if they didn't have sex blah blah blah or what ever else it just felt like the book was missing something..I don't know i guess if you never read the book before you should read it to judge for yourself... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marissa | 1/26/2014

    " Sweet but dull. It would have made a lovely novella. Regardless, it was fun to read the author's much earlier work, especially with such a departure from the hump-like-bunnies Cynsters (not that I'm complaining, mind). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 MissWhitneyB | 1/21/2014

    " Short an sweet. :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 1/17/2014

    " You can tell this was one of her earlier works. She has come a long way in her writing style. Not recommended for a first time read by her. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 1/13/2014

    " I think I read this book before, but since I didin't remember exactly how it turned out, I kept going. Spunky, unconventional heroine and dashing hero. It all works out in the end. What more do you want from a Regency romance novel? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Catty K | 1/9/2014

    " ridiculous and yet tedious at the same time. not exciting at all :( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kerry | 12/27/2013

    " This a good SL book. She is one of my favorite Romance authors. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carla | 12/11/2013

    " I liked this light, gentle regency romance, a reissue of a 1994 novel. It does not have the typical elements of Stephanie Lauren's later romances, lacking a mystery or suspense backstory and steamy scenes. Instead, it's a simple, clean romance. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Frances Fuller | 12/9/2013

    " That even an author one really likes can write a trite,dull book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Khanh | 11/22/2013

    " Complete fluff, too light even for brain candy. No serious, compelling plot. A heroine who's tstl for a Regency. Main male lead is a wordly man of the ton, who is considerably older and wiser than the heroine, yet he inexplicably feels a pull towards her anyway. Utterly unbelievable love story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deanna | 11/18/2013

    " I hate to be like this because I have read other books from this author and loved them but this book was...well...boring. There was no "action" and the miscommunication between the two main characters lasted until the last ten pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anneliese Bennion | 10/1/2013

    " This was a delightful little read. It had fun characters and a clever little story and best of all it was clean. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 jackie frye | 9/28/2013

    " Stephanie Laurens before the Cynster books and it was marvelous. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie Duvall | 7/26/2013

    " This book was well-written and had an enjoyable enough plot. Unfortunately the timing just wasn't right for me to read it, and I didn't make it through. Sometime down the road I might pick it up again. Don't let my "couldn't finish" tag keep you away from it, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 5/5/2013

    " Haha It was funny Reading the book. I love how Dominic used those endearments for Georgiana. Bella and Arthur were a welcome distraction in the reading! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael | 3/23/2013

    " Dull regency from Laurens. Her historicals are better "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dianne Salzwedel | 7/14/2012

    " Lady comes home from Itlay to a bad cousin that is trying to marry her "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sophia | 6/5/2012

    " So I pretty much skimmed through most of the first half of the book. It was alright not up to par with the rest of her books. Georgie and Dominic were kind of flat characters. And the whole refusal of marriage proposals got really tiring by the end. They were both being dumb. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annette Meier | 5/13/2012

    " It was a delightful story of "cat & mouse". Audio book narrator wasn't as strong as others I've heard, so listening was not as enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vivianne | 2/7/2012

    " An early sweet romance from a writer known for sizzle. I enjoyed seeing the beginnings of the dynamic she usually explores, though the book has lots of newbie awkwardnesses too. A keeper for me--a fantastic way to work out how to develop my own writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brooke | 10/10/2011

    " It was pretty good. I liked the charicters except that the female charicters can't take care of themselves and the main female charicter seems a little dumb. But still entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 4/25/2011

    " 3.8. Early Laurens but really nice. Reminded me a bit of Georgette Heyer's Arabella. "

    " I am finding that I really like Stephanie Laurens books.

    The only problem I have with this book is the heroine. By the last few chapters of the book I wanted to shake Georgiana Hartley. "
