Summary

A man who wants to be alone, and a woman seeking shelter from the cold - and neither can hold out from temptation…
 

Sir Moses of Wandorne is a miser. Despite not even reaching thirty, his miserable outlook on life and mysterious past means that he is usually left alone: which is just how he likes it.
 

But Chloe Vaughn is about to change all that. Accidentally stuck on the shores of the river that passes through the Wandorne estate, she seeks refuge from the storm and discovers a man who doesn't want to be found.
 

It is an unlikely pairing, but society demands a certain amount of conversation from a host, and Sir Moses finds himself drawn by the strange and intoxicating stranger.
 

Will Sir Moses decide to open his heart - and his bed - to a woman he barely knows? Can being beached with a Baronet give Chloe a night she will never forget?
 

This is the sixth in a series of the Ravishing Regencies series.
 

This is a steamy Regency romance with a happily ever after, no cliffhangers, and part of a series that can be read in any order.

A sweet romance

I really enjoyed the basic simplicity of this short and sweet romance. The storyline was charming as were the characters.

Julia Eve did a nice job narrating this book. I enjoyed her performance.

A sweet treat, very easy listening

Short and very sweet, this Regency romance is the creamy chocolate bar you dip into your tea so that it melts in your mouth. Simple, but indulgent, the writing is not the sharpest or most refined but the characters and storyline are compelling. It isn't the most authentic Regency ('Chloe' is quite an uncommon name for the era, the phrase 'make love' is a century or so ahead of its time, and much of the period grammar is not quite right), but it has a lot of charm and was very easy to listen to. 

The narrator, Julia Eve, did a marvellous job with the female characters of all ages, and she suffused the butler with a great deal of wry humour. The only character whose voice I was less keen on was the Baronet's, but it can be so tricky for female narrators to really find the depth and seductive resonance of a good romantic hero. 

Throughout this audiobook I was reminded of Beauty and the Beast - even before Chloe donned a buttercup yellow gown! There will always be a hint of the fairytale in any story about a bitter, reclusive, aristocrat and the beautiful, frustrated, bluestocking who arrives at his home in the middle of a storm. It was not unwelcome, and contributed to the ease with which I finished the book in a single sitting. 

I will certainly keep an eye (and an ear!) out for the rest of the series. 

*I received this audiobook free of charge in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Great listen

I think this one is my fave so far. It has just the right mix of angst and hotness. I like the fact it showed how far we’ve come in women’s rights as well.
Just a great listen.

Loved it!

This is the sixth book of eight Ravishing Regencies, a steamy and fun historical romance. The story of Sir Moses of Wandorne and Chloe Vaughn is beautifully written. Chloe is a lovely, refreshing, and fun character. I love the ending. Julia Eve did a great job with the narration. I loved this story.

Moses gets a second chance

Moses's closed his heart off to love, but not to lust due to a lost love. Chloe got under his protective, rough, gruff, facade to a warm and caring heart. A well meaning friend causes a rift in the new relationship between Chloe and Moses, but Moses must try to rectify things. See how things turn out. The narrator did a good job of being the characters to life.

Cute Regency Romance

Title: Beached with a Baronet
Author: Emily Murdock
Format: Audio
Narrator: Julia Eve
Genre: Historical Romance (Regency)
Standalone: Yes
Part of a Series: Book 6 of the Ravishing Regencies series
POV: Chloe and Moses
Steam Level: Warm
3.5/5

I don't a lot of historical romances but this was a fun one. Beached with a Baronet was sweet and funny. I liked Chloe's sass and smarts and Moses' transformation from grumpy to happy. The narrator though was a bit over the top at times which was a bit distracting. Overall, this seems like a fun series

An Intellectual True Love Story

After her great frustration of being repeatedly reminded that women's intelligence was considered negligible at best, Lady Chloe Vaughn takes off on her own to cool off. When she awakens, it is pouring rain and she's drenched. In an effort to get out of the deluge, she knocks on the door of the nearest lodging, the home of the grumpy Baronet Moses Wandorne.

I really enjoyed the banter between Chloe and Moses as they got acquainted. Her intellect charmed me almost as much as it did him. Emily Murdoch did an outstanding job of character building between Chloe and Moses as well as Baxter and Lady Charlotte. And how I loved the sexual build-up! It ends up hot and heavy, as with the rest of the series. Watch for their HEA too. Hands down, my favorite book in the series thus far!!

I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Eve's narration. Her beautiful British voice lends itself well to the characters and she puts an enormous amount of life and emotion into the storyline.

A passionate and fun Regency romp

If you are looking for a fun series of Regency historical novellas, look no further than the “Ravishing Regencies” series. I had previously read the first two books as ebooks, and I thoroughly enjoyed all three. The cute common thread that ties all the novellas is an initial near-calamity involving water. Rest assured, near the beginning of each book, someone gets soaking wet somehow.

The narration was very good throughout. She has an authentic English accent with a tinge of Cockney. She is quite good at male and female voices and excellent at bringing across the humor from the text. The butler character is especially funny. The narrator is especially good at the passionate love scenes.

I really like the writer’s style of seductive but fun Regency romance. This novella has a wonderfully torrid love affair after a meeting of scientific minds. The bold Miss Chloe Vaughn and the reclusive but smart Lord Moses are a great match. They have great conversations. The brief but passionate love scenes are not very explicit. These scenes are very well written, describing the whirlwind of feelings and sensations. This audiobook is a great choice if you want some steaminess but you don’t want the love scene content to overwhelm the story.

I received a free copy via AudioObsession, and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Very Enjoyable!

I am actually very excited about this audiobook.
It is quite different from others which I have read recently and it was so easy for me to relate to both of the main characters, Chloe and Moses. I kept routing first for the one and then for the other. Just couldn't help myself.
Both Chloe and Moses come across as quite down to earth and human, fighting their feelings, not wanting to experience any of the emotions that they do and yet they are unable to control themselves. Eventually, like most of us, they simply give in and do what they later regret. I think this was captured really well.
I loved that there was such a lovely happy ending with a beautiful surprise written into it.
This story certainly came alive for me and for this reason I rate it as highly recommendable.
The narration is done by Julia Eve in her splendid voices and style. Really very easy on the ear!
I originally read an Advance Reader Copy of the ebook and now have also listened to the audiobook and this is my voluntary and unbiased review of both.
