Lady Amanda Locke has struck out miserably in her two Seasons on the marriage mart. Beautiful, titled, and charming - even if she does talk a bit too much - Amanda doesn't understand why love eludes her. Even her father, the Duke of Norford, is so perplexed he is prepared to take drastic measures to ensure his daughter's happiness. Now, as Amanda begins her third Season, she gets a little help from Cupid, a darkly handsome horse breeder whose knowledge of basic animal attraction has guided him in arranging more than a few successful matches between the young ladies and gentlemen of the ton.
Hired by Amanda's family, Devin Baldwin produces results for Amanda and soon she is happy to be courted by one of his clients, the dashing Viscount Altone. In order to secure Amanda's match to a nobleman obsessed with horse racing, Devin must teach Amanda how to overcome her fear of horses. But as Devin shows her the joys of riding, hunting, and racing, will their own hearts run astray as Amanda finds herself falling in love with Cupid himself?
Experience Johanna Lindsey's "mastery of historical romance!" (Entertainment Weekly)
©2012 Johanna Lindsey (P)2012 Brilliance Audio, Inc.
Like a good old fashioned story,or a true crime book. Something not drawn out or a slow storyline.
Good narrator. Overall a great romance couldn't stop listening you g to look for more by Johannes lindsay
Wouldn't want to spoil the story for some one else
Yes but too long for that
"Good book to pass the time"
This is not fast paced book at all which makes it good to listen to while cleaning, gardening, or any hobby you enjoy. It was an nice story that did keep my interest - it was just more slower paced than I'm used to. I still would recommend this book because the price is very reasonable. So for the price....I'd say give it a try.
"Love the Series"
This series of 4 books [so far] is lovely, but I must admit that I like the 2 center books in the series better than the first book or this last book.
"Entertaining if you can get past the terrible narrator"
This was an entertaining light read but I could not get past the narrator's reading style which was comically overdramatic at best and eye-rollingly annoying at worst.
I honestly think this was too similar to the plot of Ophelia's as well as another one of the A Malory series. can't quite remember what one. however still I good one.
I love a good Lindsey. This one was sweet and enjoyable with likeable characters. The story was predictable but good.
"LOVE! Worth the wait!"
I grew up reading Johanna Lindsey books since I was 14, and over time I stopped reading them because it seemed to be always the same. They hate, they fight, they start to love, then hate and fight more, then finally last chapter they love. But not with this one. I giggled, and laughed, and cried, and they loved through the entire book! Amazing job, and I hope to find more of her books like this one! The reader of course was perfect as Anne usually is with her readings! Definitely worth purchasing!
"I love this story when I read it year ago Johanna"
I have read everyone of her books and I started reading and feel in love with her writing back in 1988 after my first son was born I read to him and he was just happy to hear my voice when I rocked him to aleep. and to this day I look forward to any and every book she comes up with. and I have 3 sons and they love to read OK may not what I do bit reading is betre then being board.
"not the worst not the best"
struggled to finish this. didn't not like the audio. wish someone else read this book
"I Love Johanna Lindsey"
Yes, Johanna Lindsey always delivers a great romance no matter what! I'm new to Audio books, but I have read all her books and they are all worth the read! The only thing that really bothers me is the narrators voice, and when they try to be the opposite sex it's strange.
no, but she sounds like Mary Poppins-tt
No, I'm at work when listening, so I wait until I go back to work to finish.
Mallory Novels are the Best !!!!!!! Her Mallory Line is a must read and it ties into all of these other books.
"Not Johanna Lindsay's best"
This book never really got off the ground for me. Normally Johanna Lindsay's books grab you and pull you into the story completely, but this book had way too many soon-forgotten characters and dull dialogue. I listened to it the whole way and there were a few chapters that were better than the rest. I'd recommend you skip this one and go onto one of her other novels.
