Summary

Welcome to a new series by nationally best-selling author Elizabeth Johns. Enjoy the extraordinary tale of four Knight brothers, and one little sister in the Gentlemen of Knights. 

Can a sharp-tongued governess become indispensable to a duke? 

Rowley Knight, Duke of Knighton, is too busy being a duke to bother with such nonsense as love. With three heirs, he is in no hurry whatsoever to succumb to the lures of the leg-shackles. He is content managing his siblings and estates, and avoiding society whenever possible. If he can only find someone to manage his young sister, life can go back to its proper order. 

Emma Lancaster's father gambled away her family's fortune leaving her hopes for a respectable marriage shattered. Destitute and near desperate, she accepts a position as a governess to a young lady at the recommendation of her godmother. Little does she know that her charge is the brother of the man she despises. Can she humble herself to become his employee? Or will her temper get the best of her - and him?

.... meh

It isn’t difficult to listen to thanks to Alex Wyndham’s narration—his voice and style makes almost anything a treat—but a very lacking love story made this book hard to invest in. When the ending comes I wasn’t quite sure how we’d gotten to a HEA... there was more spark between Edmund and Emma than her and the Duke. All the pieces were there for something quite good, but the execution fell rather short. Might return for later books in the series if AW continues to narrate, otherwise it’s a pass for me.

Ridiculous story

Our heroine travels from London to Devon by coach with her godmother and best friend to take up a position as a companion to a sixteen year old girl. She knows how much she will be paid but during days travelling doesn't ask the name of her employer nor her destination. Shock! Horror! Her employer is a man she hates for some reason and she fears he will recognise her. The improbabilities continued and I stopped listening after the second chapter.

Excellent story with incredible narration

First in a series of books about five siblings (four brothers and a sister) during the Regency era. Clean with a touch of danger and intrigue. Family dynamics are familiar to any era. Wonderfully performed by Alex Wyndham.

New to Elizabeth Johns

Pleasantly surprised! A good read, wish it was longer and with Alex Wyndham narrating I really enjoyed the book. Through years of audible listening, I've become picky about the narrators because a poor narrator can ruin a good book. Alex Wyndham makes a good book better. I'm going to check out Elizabeth's other books!

Cute, but ...

This is a nice clean story. The narrator makes it very interesting, and you keep waiting for those really important moments. But, when they arrive they don’t have that sparkle you are looking for that make you re-listen over and over again. Good book to listen if you are looking to pass the the time and entertain yourself. Very little romance a lot of yearning!

Another great new author for me

Alex Wyndham is my favorite male narrator. Elizabeth Jones is a new author for me. She has a talent for telling a good story and in character development. IMHO if the characters are not interesting and don't have depth, then the story doesn't matter. Another thing I like about this book....she shortened rather than just run on and on and repeating. The Duke and Emma were good characters who readers/listeners could relate to. I'm looking forward to reading the other books in this series. Thank you Elizabeth and Alex for 6 hours of entertainment.
