Summary

Audrey Sheridan is London's sweetheart, a position that allows her access to the ton and all its secrets. As the enigmatic writer, Lady Society, she is wild, reckless, and speaks her mind. She matchmakes wicked rogues with their perfect wives. But there's one thing she's failed to find since her debut. A husband for herself. And there's only one man she's ever wanted. There's just one problem: He doesn't want her. What's a lady to do to mend her broken heart? Run off to become a spy....  

Jonathan St. Laurent is anything but a saint and certainly not husband material. He spent nearly his entire life as a servant to his half-brother, the Duke of Essex. He's trying to play the gentleman now, but it's damned hard when he's tempted by the ton's darling spitfire Audrey. There's something about her that makes him want to abandon the rules of polite society and show her just how wicked he can be...which is why it's better to avoid the minx altogether. When Audrey's plan to be a spy is discovered, Jonathan knows he must move heaven and earth to protect her while guarding his own secret....

Love this Series

I've been waiting for Jonathan and Audrey's story! Heather Wilds is an excellent narrator and the story line kept my interest. I like that we see certain events that took place in other books from the viewpoint other characters in this book. I look forward the Charles' story.

Too modern for this genre

I couldn't get past the first chapter. The story line did not sound true to the time to me - too modern in its sensibilities. Not my kind of historical romance.

Sing song voice. Very weird.

I love the story but they should not have published the story with this narration. This song song voice makes it really hard for me to listen to the story. She reads as if she is reading a poem with an annoying rhyme scheme. It's as if she is trying to use iambic pentameter. Yes, her voice is nice but she reads as if their is a question sign at the end of most of the descriptive sentences. As lovely as the story is, I cannot finish listening to it.

just a retelling of the book before

I feel this was lazy writing. A large part of the book was verbatim sections of the last book from another person's point of view. I get why. But there were moments I had to stop and look to make sure I wasn't listening to the previous book. Why pay full price for old content. I was disappointed as this was the 9th book of hers I purchased and read. All the other books were entertaining. So I won't give up on the series. But a note to the author.... write original content... this is not the time for recycling.

Did Not Like

in order to understand what's happening in this book you would have had to have read the prior books in this series.

Not as good as the previous one's

Firstly- narrator was awful. She made it very difficult to make it through. very monotone and flat.

I really loved this series up until around the 3rd book. it went downhill after that for me. I won't be continuing this series. I had high hopes for Aubry but she just disappointed all the way around.
