This Rake of Mine

Author: Elizabeth Boyle Narrator: Susan Duerden Release Date: June 2020

When the rakehell Lord Jack Tremont kissed Miranda Mabberly, mistaking her for his mistress, neither realized his reckless act would cost Miranda her reputation, her fiance, and her future. But for Jack, it was a kiss that would haunt-an intoxicating memory of a woman lost to him forever. Years later, hiding incognito far from London-a teacher at Miss Emery's Establishment for the Education of Genteel Ladies-Miranda has made a respectable life for herself, away from the ton and the dangerous men who inhabit it. When a penniless, much humbled, though still damnably attractive Jack arrives at the school to escort a rebellious young niece home, Miranda does her best to avoid the rogue only to end up tumbling into his arms-and reawakening a desire that is anything but proper. She might want to deny her heart, but Miranda's resolve is no match for a trio of schoolgirl matchmakers who knows true passion when they spy it. Now they won't rest until their all-too-proper teacher and the reprobate lord discover the love that is their destiny.

My Four Seasons in France: A Year Of The Good Life Audiobook

My Four Seasons in France: A Year Of The Good Life

Author: Janine Marsh Narrator: Susan Duerden Release Date: April 2020

A little over ten years ago, Janine Marsh and her husband gave up their careers in London to chase the good life in the countryside of northern France. Having overcome the obstacles of starting to renovate her dream home-an ancient, dilapidated barn-and fitting in with the peculiarities of the locals, Janine is now the go-to expat in the area for those seeking to get to grips with a very different way of life. In this book, Janine regales us with the delights and dramas of a year attempting to live the rural idyll. Each month brings to light a new aspect of life in the French countryside: snow in January, resulting in a broken arm, which in turn leads to an etiquette lesson at the local hospital; wild winds in February; cuckoos in March; and giant hailstones in July that destroy cars and houses and bring the villagers closer together. Told with warmth and humor, My Good Year in France showcases a uniquely French way of life: where two eternally ambitious expats drag a neglected farmhouse to life, and deal with the accompanying disasters, learn to grow vegetables, discover how to cook, and stumble across the hidden gems of this very special part of the world.
