by Sherry Thomas | Read by Corrie James

Corrie James's lofty British accent perfectly embodies the characters who populate this historical romance. Handsome but distant Felix Rivendale, a marquess dubbed "The Ideal Gentleman,"can't help pursuing the feisty but impoverished--and, thus,unacceptable--Louisa Cantwell. Louisa must marry to help support her family and can't imagine why the most sought after bachelor in London is interested in making sure she isn't interested in anyone else. James performs each of the principals well, demonstrating a wide vocal range and admirable acting skills. The story is clever and tender in places, humorous and somber in others.
