Narrator Susan Ericksen keeps her tone light and her pace easy throughout this third book in the American Heiress in London series. She misses some of the subtle humor and tension in this clever, honest romance and doesn't differentiate enough between the numerous male characters, making some scenes confusing. However, she ably tackles the accents of the Earl of Featherstone, a British peer who is determined to bring down a notorious villain, and Linnet Holland, the American heiress whom he saves from a disastrous marriage--by ruining her himself. Ericksen's deft talent with accents makes it easy for listeners to follow the protagonists' quick banter and witty dialogue, if not always the tension and feelings of need growing between them.
