Poor little Susie Burke. A beautiful dreamer, she imagined herself happy in a rose-covered cottage, only to find herself mistress of a great damp castle and wife to the elderly Earl of Blackball.

Luck, not the lecherous earl, contrived to spare her. She was a wealthy young widow on her wedding night. But her trials had just begun. The old countess was determined to turn the

I love that this author shows how silly love can be and how silly people can be. The characters are very human, getting into tiffs and squabbles. And how real life rarely lives up to our dreams. Marriage is hard and I love how the characters work it out. I laughed out loud many times throughout.

Why did I read this? I heard this on audiobook, and even as I was listening, I kept wondering, "why am I still listening to this book?" but it was one of those where I hadn't had a chance to find another audiobook to replace it on my drive to/from work and I hated this book slightly less than I hated listening to morning talk radio while stuck in traffic, so I finished it.

It's not that the writing was particularly bad, but just that all of the characters were horrible. ALL of them, even the sup

When the ageing Earl of Blackhall is injured in a carriage accident nearby and is taken in by her GP father her parents plot with the Earl to marry Susie to him. Innocent and unsophisticated, Susie finds herself married to the Earl and whisked off to his castle in Kent to live with him and his mother, Felicity. But things don’t work out quite how the Earl intended and fate has something else in store for him. ...more

This is one of the few books/series I would read again. These stories of Marion Chesney started me on my adventure...reading Regency Romance/Novels/History! There is not a set of books that will teach you more about the basics about life in Regency England. There are six series with six books each. I love them all. It must be a "past life" thing:)

I liked it and would read it again. I funny and sad as you can help but feel sorry for Susie. I didn’t really like how it ended but not all books can end well. I love how it written and it well described.

This book was interesting enough, but it was not one of this author's best novels. The protagonist, Susie, is ridiculously clueless, and for half the novel she falls in love with a random assortment of hideous men. The hero is pretty standard; nothing wrong with him, but not too much to remember.

I listened to a downloaded version of this written under the name of Marion Chesney. It was very funny.
