Abandoned at the altar... 

Lady Beatrix Danbury had always known she would marry William Mallory. She'd loved him forever, and she'd never doubted he loved her, too. But when she made him choose between their life together or his lifelong dream, Will chose the latter...and left two weeks before their wedding. 

Return of the duke... 

Will has no illusions that Beatrix would welcome him back with open arms, but six years did not dim his love or desire for her. The only problem is, she's about to marry someone else. Someone safe and predictable...the complete opposite of Will. But can he stop the wedding of the season and win Beatrix back, or is it just too late?

I picked this up because I was looking for a stamp on my HR bingo sheet. Alas, I shall not be stamping for this. 

We have Beatrix and Will. They had once been in love and he abandoned her years ago. Time goes on and she is engaged to another. Of course, he comes around. Maybe not for her, but he happens to come back to find a sponsor for his Egypt stuff. They hate each other because she didn't want to go to Egypt and he left her a the alter. 

Booooo to both of these characters. They are both jerks and I couldn't stand them. They both have points but they were jerks to each other. Especially Will. He is an asshat. I do not believe his feelings were genuine for her. Who knows?

I did not finish. I couldn't move on. I got about halfway and had to walk away. I didn't care to turn this back on. 

The narrator wasn't bad. But she wasn't good enough to keep me listening. 

Overall, this wasn't for me. I could not finish. The two main characters were jerkfaces and the narrator was decent, but not good enough to keep me hooked. DNF.

Yep, I've DNF'd when I couldn't stand the characters and could care less about their romance. Deep breath and move on. LOL
