Summary

Angelique is a short story.

"The Marquise de Chabernet, her French grandmother, had fixed her with glittering eyes and told her when she was but 10 years old, 'If there is something that you want in this life, mon ange, do not believe anyone who says you cannot have it.'"

But Angelique, living with the Duke and Duchess of Saith and their daughter beautiful Rosalind feels too distant from hope to want anything. And then she sees handsome, wicked Sir Rafael Villiers, and she knows her Destiny. It is time for the plain and timid Miss Torrington to remember she is also a de Chabernet, and her grandmother's daughter. But Villiers is interested in her beautiful cousin - so how can she get his attention?

Can Angelique pull it off? With the help of Rosalind's brother, her amused confidant Ferdinand, she just might do it.

Alicia Cameron has been called "a worthy successor to Georgette Heyer" and has been beloved by fans of Jane Austen. Here is another witty short story, full of romance and adventure to warm the heart and make you laugh.

A short story with a hint of Cinderella

An enjoyable listen. This story is a captivating mix of romance and humour. If you like regency romance, you’ll like this.

Short but sweet

The story is well written and further enhanced by the narrator/performer. Actually, I chose it because of the narrator and was pleased to discover a new author.

Delightful short story.

Just under 54 mins of audio, this delightful romance is sweet and Cinderella-like. It was a wonderful escape and filler between the longer stories I tend to listen to. If you are looking for a short, delightful and clean audible experience, this is it.

I thoroughly enjoyed Helen Taylor’s narration.

Totally Charmed 💕

It seems almost scandalous to give a short novella an unequivocal 5-Star rating. But there it is. This book captured my heart, my imagination, and my desire for the HEA that I so desperately desired. I loved every moment of Angelique’s dreamy story. You will too!!

Narration was lovely as well :)

YOUNG Woman Considers Visitation

A very young French woman learns about having goals in romantic relationships. Performed very well. If you are trying to include more classic works in your listening habits, this is a great choice at 53 minutes.

Fluff

The story was technically okay, as well as clean and appropriate. However, the male character development seemed shallow. The plot, such as it was, required the two male supporting characters to arouse interest and have a believable response to the h. I wasn't interested and didn't find their responses credible. Therefore, the story fell flat for me, even though Helen Taylor's narration was excellent.

A cute, short, clean period romance

Angelique and the pursuit of Destiny is a cute period romance about a young French emigre coming of age and finding her place in England. The story is clean and suitable for any readers who would enjoy it.

The narrator of the audiobook has a pleasant voice and does a nice job with the book.

It started out great...

Strong potential sadly cut short. It felt as though the author lost interest and just “wrapped it up”. I wish I had looked at the length before listening.
