In exchange for an honest review
An oldie Kleypas, I could not say no to that. I have never read the Hathaway books and now was a good way to start with audio.
Amelia and her 4 siblings are "orphans", ok so she is 26 but her two youngest sisters are young. Her older brother is drinking himself to death for some reason, and he recently became a viscount too.
Flee to the countryside! I liked Amelia, she was such a mother hen. But she had too with one ill sister, and two younger ones running wild, and yes that brother of hers! But it is explained why he turned out this way, poor man.
Cam was mysterious, and not proper one bit. In an era where Roma got chased out then falling for one is perhaps not the best way to get polite society to accept you. But he is always there, and he is that steady influence that she needs. But he does not need to be closed in, house or marriage.
And then they live happily ever after! Obviously. But the road there is long with two people who is not seeking marriage.
I liked the narrator. She had this nice upper crust accent at times that fit so well. I fell into the story and she was good with distinct voices, and male and female. It was enjoyable listening to
And the rest of the siblings sound fascinating so I can't wait
When an unexpected inheritance elevates her family to the ranks of the aristocracy, Amelia Hathaway discovers that tending to her younger sisters and wayward brother was easy compared to navigating the intricacies of the ton.

When the delectable Amelia appeals to him for help, he intends to offer only friendship—but intentions are no match for the desire that blindsides them both. But can a man who spurns tradition be tempted into that most time-honored arrangement: marriage? Life in London society is about to get a whole lot hotter.…
