Summary

Annalise Avery would rather run away than marry the despicable man her stepfather has chosen for her. All he wants is her fortune anyway. Escaping with two servants, Annalise takes employment at Lord Gardiner's town house, disguised as a housekeeper. No one suspects that the new housekeeper for his wild lordship's London pied-à-tierre is a diamond of the first water and a famous horsewoman. But as Annalise becomes familiar with Gardiner's tomcatting, she vows to thwart the despicable man and his lascivious ways. Sleeping powders in the wine and fleas in the bed do just the trick! In the meantime, his lordship has grown quite preoccupied by the very mysterious Lady in Green who rides through the park atop a magnificent steed, spurring hearts young and old - including his own!

Lady in Green

Lady in Green is an amusing story.

I have read 42 of Barbara's books that are available on Kindle. I hope that they are all made available on audible. I absolutely love Stevie Zimmerman as the narrator for Barbara Metzger's stories. I would love for her to narrates them all!

Really Enjoyed This Story!

This is one of my favorite books. I love the story, the wit, and charm the author spins into this book. The romance level was just right for the story. I'd highly recommend this book.

Frolicking regency romp!

Stevie Zimmerman gives a stellar performance in this lighthearted yet excellent tale. With laugh out loud moments and seriously thought provoking situations this is one book that is well worth every penny.

Amusing but somewhat ribald story

This is a plot designed for fun, not intended to be taken seriously. It didn't always work, but it built up & got more amusing as things went on.

Not for those looking for clean, traditional Regency stories. The hero's sexual interests & frustrations are discussed fairly frankly. We're let in on the building physical interest between the two, but it's not discussed in the voyeuristic, soft porn style of so many modern "romances".

The reader overall does well, but as I have noted on another review of a different book she read, her voice struggles when trying to sound masculine. It doesn't bother me much, but noting it here for those it will.

Overall, it was engaging & entertaining.

Historical soft porn

Would you try another book from Barbara Metzger and/or Stevie Zimmerman?

Really stupid book, bordering on soft porn. What a waste. I returned it.
