When the most eligible Earl of Rule offers for the hand of the Beauty of the Winwood Family, he has no notion of the distress he causes his intended. For Miss Lizzie Winwood is promised to the excellent, but impoverished, Mr Edward Heron. Disaster can only be averted by the delightful impetuosity of her youngest sister, Horatia, who conceives her own, distinctly original plans.


Naxos Audiobooks introduced the audiobook on the release date with the following:

Continuing the heavenly courtship between Georgette Heyer’s prose and Richard Armitage’s voice, Naxos AudioBooks releases The Convenient Marriage. The impetuous, stammering heroine Horatia takes matters of the heart into her own hands, in another title which will delight fans of Heyer and Richard Armitage.
