Description

"Matthews has a knack for creating slow-building chemistry and an intriguing plot with a social history twist." -Library Journal  

She wanted sanctuary...  

Helena Reynolds will do anything to escape her life in London, even if that means traveling to a remote cliffside estate on the North Devon coast and marrying a complete stranger. But Greyfriar's Abbey isn't the sort of refuge she imagined. And ex-army captain Justin Thornhill - though he may be tall, dark, and devastatingly handsome - is anything but a romantic hero.  

He needed redemption...  

Justin has spent the last two decades making his fortune, settling scores, and suffering a prolonged period of torture in an Indian prison. Now, he needs someone to smooth the way for him with the villagers. Someone to manage his household - and warm his bed on occasion. What he needs, in short, is a wife and a matrimonial advertisement seems the perfect way to acquire one. Their marriage was meant to be a business arrangement and nothing more. A dispassionate union free from the entanglements of love and affection. But when Helena's past threatens, will Justin's burgeoning feelings for his new bride compel him to come to her rescue? Or will dark secrets of his own force him to let her go?

Excellent story!

I love this author! She doesn't rely on gratuitous sex scenes to engage an audience. She uses her story!

Excellent Storyline. Excellent Narration. Excellent Price!

From the very beginning my interest was caught and held. This story addresses more than one social issue of that time period: circumvention of the law by some who can afford to pay for that circumvention in order to increase their wealth; cruel treatment of persons confined to mental institutions; treatment of women as chattel; and the ease with which even sane individuals could be confined to mental institutions on the instigation of the wealthy and powerful. The author managed to reveal so many social issues while still presenting a romantic story with strong male and female characters who had to work through the effects of life experiences that contributed to the shaping of their individual characters. I thoroughly enjoyed this Audible recording. I give it a 5-star rating and a strong recommendation. I look forward to a possible series.

engaging read

Beautiful story with very solid writing. Justine Eyre does a wonderful job narrating both male and female voices, and her voice lends just the right amount of angst to the story,

English bride

I enjoy a mindless hopeful romance and this fits the bill. Not over the top sexual which is a nice change who needs all that throbbing in every paragraph anyway. Voice affliction during the story was great! Overall a nice cozy read

Loved it!

What a wonderful love story. It had me laughing, angry, full of nerves and emotional, and happy. A wonderfully written and narrated story...and CLEAN. I will definitely look into listening to more from this author and narrator.

Can't wait for the next book!

Just keep writing, Mimi! Love all of your stories. And the narrator, Justin Eyre, is exceptional! She has a voice like velvet whisky and her cadence and timing are flawless.

Adored!

I love the classics and felt throughout this book that I was caught up in the wonderful world of a Bronte sister or Jane Austen! Mimi’s style is beautiful, poignant, romantic, humorous, and I loved that there was actually so much that was true to the time period as opposed to so many historical romances that take such liberties with customs and the proprieties of the time.
The narrator did a superb job and I actually quite liked her intonations for the hero of the story, very appealing and full of emotion. NOT a sexually explicit novel, which was great as that would have sullied the story and felt inauthentic, instead the romance was slow and sweet with just enough heat passion between the hero and heroine and enough twist and excitement in the plot to keep me engaged. One of the best fiction books I’ve heard or read in a long while!
