This is a lively romp into the lives of the Aristocracy with just the right level of romancing and heat to make it very readable and most enjoyable.
The characters are well formed and I particularly liked the enquiring, inquisitive mind shown by Elizabeth and the patience of George.
I am quite happy to recommend this ebook and audiobook for its entertainment value!

Excellent and Different!

This has been a very interesting story, in fact, two stories running side by side. What a novel and clever idea.
Very well written and easy to read. Lots of good laughs and an intriguing plot. Held my attention throughout.
I've found another very talented author and narrator. Thanks for the entertainment!
I recommend this book/audio book

This is a really lovely second chance at love for Hannah and Garrick after he returns home after the war.
Its interesting that when a child is written into the story that it becomes more
interesting (at least for me it is) and if find that child very endearing and lovable. Here it was Garrick's niece who crept into my heart.
The love that crept up on them was a delight to read about.
The voice acting done by Kristina Hale was most enjoyable.
Good story, interesting characters and enjoyable narration.

Short and Sweet!

I would have wished for this story to have been longer. There was so much going for it and yet it is good as it is - what do they say, ah, "short and sweet".
I like the depth of the characters - all of them even the twins and Aletha's obnoxious brother.
Raphael was just yummy.
I'm not a fan of a duo of narrators but these two were good.

Sorry, but this calibre of story, in my honest opinion, is not good literature and not worth my time finishng it.
The only good thing going for it is the narration.

Lovely Love Story!

The acceptance of Josephine when she joins a new school was amazing with each young lady accepting her just as she is and this seems to last even after they leave and one by one get married.
But, Josephine is still single and one day she is out with her Archer's bow and - well she shot someone.
What happens after that is the making of a rather fascinating romantic story which has a beautiful happy ever after ending.
I loved the main characters, the way her friends support her and the clever, all engrossing story with its very enjoyable narration.

I actually felt quite sorry for Felix Havers because he didn't stand a chance once Sarah Colton decided she liked the way she felt when he was around her now which was quite different to the way she had felt while they were growing up.
He, of course, denies how he feels until he just can't anymore and gives in to her persuasive actions.
A beautifully written story with wonderful and very likable characters who had me entranced by their story from beginning to end and I loved every second of it.
Marion Hussey does a fabulous narration with quite believable voices and she has enhanced the story very nicely.

I really enjoyed this story. It is nicely written, isn't soppy, has two interesting and believable characters in Kaitlin Evans and Gregory Cain, a good supporting cast and an interesting idea of how to catch your guy and keep him. Above all, it held my attention throughout and definitely entertained me.
Matthew Keyes has a lovely deep voice which he uses most successfully and he made my listen very pleasurable.

In this story we have meddling family members, who, if they were mine, I would happily divorce myself from just for sanity's sake.
Don't get me wrong, there are a few family members in the story who are really very helpful and nice to know, but unfortunately it is the 'nasties' that make the story what it is besides the delightful romance that blossoms and blooms.
I loved it all, the story, the characters, the narration - all of it great entertainment!

This is a short love story where Lady Olivia, because she has been totally ignored by her betrothed, William, Duke of Thorne, decides that she wants to get him to break the betrothal and tries to concoct ways of disgusting him so that he does so.
I must admit that there is a bit of underlying sense of humor showing through and of course William only realizes that he in fact loves her and can't do without her in his life when it is almost too late.
