Growing up with four unruly brothers has made Freyja Bedwyn far bolder than most society ladies. From feisty manner to long, tumbling hair, Lady Freyja is pure fire - a woman who seeks both adventure and freedom.
Adventure soon finds her on a visit to Bath, when a handsome stranger bursts into Freyja's room and entreats her to hide him. His name is Joshua Moore, Marquess of Hallmere, a man with a hell-raising reputation of his own who is quickly intrigued by the independent beauty. So intrigued, in fact, that he makes her a surprising request: to pose as his fiancée and help thwart his family's matchmaking schemes.
For two people determined to be free, it's the perfect plan, until passion blindsides them both. For as Joshua sets out to achieve his complete seduction of Freyja, a woman who has sworn off love is in danger of losing the one thing she never expected to give again: her heart.

"With its impeccable plotting and memorable characters, Balogh's book raises the bar for Regency romances." (Publishers Weekly)

"A Humorous and Entertaining Book"
Funny, high-spirited, exciting!
That's a tall order for a book chock-full of memorable moments. I'll start at the beginning when a man enters Freyja Bedwyn's room at an Inn on her journey to Bath wanting a place to hide. Encountering the same man in Bath she socks him in the nose for a supposed transgression.
I liked both Freyja Bedwyn and Joshua Moore, Marquess of Hallmere, equally well. They played off each others personality for a humorous and enjoyable listen.
There were several moments in the book that evoked emotions; laughter, anger, etc.
The Bedwyn series have all been exceedingly entertaining but I think this book is my favorite.
Finally Freyia's story! Love the third book in the series starring the oldest Bedwyn daughter. It started with a fake engagement that ended in marriage. Well worth the credit, a great listen.
Mary Balogh is one of my favorite authors! I have loved all of the books I've read by her, and this book is no exception.
"I love the Bedwyn's"
I love everything that Rosalyn Landor narrates. She is amazing! I also love Mary Balogh. These two ladies make a book very interesting.
Hero bests Heroine
Yes, because I read/heard otherbooks first.
All auditory books bring a "voice" to the book which has the ability to to either enhance or detract from the text. Ms. Landor is a very good narrator who doesn't overdue male voices which makes them more believable. In other words ,there is no distraction due to a super fake male voice from a female narrator.
No. The physical violence of the heroine was disconcerting. I am familar with female tempers: curse, rant and rave, break something. However punching multiple people in the nose is too, too much.
Mismatch in the intensity of the Hero vs the heroine.
"One of the best books yet"
The story was one of the most fun and clever yet
And the narrator was fantastic!
"Love Mary Balogh"
I loved and enjoyed this book . Mary Balogh is one of my favorite authors . I've read most all of the books that Roslyn LANDOR narrates . And most of Ms. Balogh has written .
"Great! Now waiting for the rest of this series!!!"
Finally, the Slightly series in audio format, with a good narrator. Three more, please! Soon!!!
