Emma Trent had spent most of her life looking after other people, so it was a shock to encounter a man so determined to take care of her. She was hardly in a position to turn down Sir Paul Wyatt’s proposal of marriage, even if it was motivated by convenience on his part. Could the eminent surgeon be the answer to all her dreams?

Overall

Reviewed: 05-03-19

I have had a book shelf full of the author Betty Neels., Then when I became a Silver Surfer and got myself a Kindle I bought every one of her books. They have a comforting feel good quality about them, based on the authors own experience. Through reading them I have learned a little Dutch, know a little of the places of interest in Holland and Friesland.
How I wish more books were set to Betty Neels Audible, because I take my kindle to read in bed, I am 81 and waken often in the night, but switching on my Audible Betty Neels stories soon has me relaxed enough to sleep again. Audible books are invaluable to me, and I would recommend all of the Audible Betty Neels stories .

Alice Lovesey was a poorly mistreated scullery maid whose desperate plea for help miraculously summoned Wadham Hall's rakish eighth duke - summoned him from the dead! Though caught up in the delights of being newly materialized, the duke promised to return the favor by helping Alice become a lady of quality. But did Alice's heart stand a ghost of a chance now that she had lost it to a restless spirit?

A thoroughly satisfying story, just suspend reality, as one does with any Love Story, with the twist that our heroine lives her life during the day in fear and uncertainty, bullied, beaten and kidnapped, by servants and Aristocrats alike.. while our Hero lives his life at night, as a most unusual Aristocratic ghost. He comes to her at dusk and solves her problems , they are gradually drawn together He knowing what love really is, she learning! All with a Happy Ever After ending, such a clever author! More please!

She swore she would never marry a rich man! As a private nurse to wealthy spoiled people, Constantia had seen the misery too much money could bring. Jeroen van der Giessen, though, was only a poor overworked GP, so when she found herself stranded without money or passport, and Jeroen offered marriage, Constantia accepted.

Betty Neels is easily the best "easy listening" story writer for your bedtime reading. She writes such satisfying stories of the light romance kind, always with a happy ever after ending. I wish more of her books could be turned into Audible , the Little Dragon is my favourite of all her books, made into Audible.

I loved this new reader, her voice is gentle, like you imagine Matilda's voice to be. The story was believable, and had the right balance of happy as well as unhappy things happen.
I love the tangled plot Betty Neel's weaves in her books, and the unhurried way she brings her story to it happy ending, just right for a book at bed time.
I love these morally clean little books, and wish all of Betty Neel's books could be made Audible, since I go to sleep listening to the story, setting the automatic switch off, that makes sure I never lose my place.
