Summary

What foul devilry is this? They told her he was dead. After six long years without a word, her knight falls onto his knees and sings poetry. Then he denies their son? Heed this well. She's no longer an innocent who'll giggle and tarry on his every word. The sharp edge of her tongue and knife is the only welcome he'll get. She'll not marry him. Besides, the pain would be too much to bear should he ever leave again.

Her attitude is beyond understanding. What voice did he have? The king commanded and he obeyed. Regardless of her hatred, the Templar knight weds. This time she will travel with him and he will win back her favor. It's a long road from London to Hadrian's Wall. Evil deeds weave a plot laced with castles, kidnappings, and missives. Will the treacherous journey split them asunder forever? Mayhap only in heaven will he rekindle the passion they once shared.

The story would be ok, even charming, in bits...

I enjoyed the silly rhymes if nothing else; The story would be ok, even charming in bits, if the squeaky voice and lilt of Mary Alden narration were not so off-putting; the story needed at least to be read with a male voice for the male parts.

interesting historical romance

An interesting historical romance.  The storyline was different for me but wonderfully narrated with alot of mishaps, drama, betrayal on a long trip to a HEA.  The characters were engaging. The story even though you have a HEA from this couple you are lead into a cliffhanger leading to another story for a series.

Loved the audio book.I loved the twist and turns, Mary had a child out of wedlock and as soon as the father turns up they get married.
The narrator was clear in speaking and easy to understand.

Romantic and suspenseful.

Firstly, I am voluntarily leaving an honest review of this book.

This book of the series was quite fun. I love the singing they did while traveling. I love that even though they've been apart a long time, Thomas still felt quite strongly for Mary (Meredith) and felt betrayal at learning she had had a child in his absence. Boy, did that sobered him up fast though. I enjoyed that he had to seduce her back to him, even though he had her heart and love all along.

Like I mentioned in the other review for this series, I read/listened to them out of ordered so there was some confusion as to who some of the characters were. Still, the author did a good job at providing enough information so as that wasn't such an issue as the main characters were the focal point of the story. Narrator did a very good job, had no trouble following the dialogues between the characters at all.

Overall, if you enjoy historical, this is one not to be missed.

Timing is truly everything!

How To Marry Your Wife buy Stella Marie Alden is a well written medieval romance with an entertaining performance by the narrator. Thomas and Meredith's timing is consistently something to be desired! Time after time they are interrupted and kept apart. However, fate is determined to bring them together and keep them that way. After many misunderstandings and plans of nefarious intent, Thomas and Meredith are also as determined as fate herself.
Overall a very entertaining listen with medieval flair including danger and suspense which ultimately leads to the much anticipated HEA.

Fun Historical Fiction Romance

I offered to review this audiobook because I am such an an avid reader but also almost exclusively audio due to my schedule. Because of this, I can be critical of narrators. Especially when books have a single narrator required to speak with different voices for multiple characters. Most cannot do it without having some errors where they use the wrong 'voice' for the wrong character. I am a true believer in the fact that a bad narrator can destroy a great book and have turned away several books with good ratings because of just that. The narrator in this book did a great job, so I was able to listen to the book without issue.

Next is the story. I am not one to give a lot of specific story details since I feel you should read the story for that, and in this case, you won't be disappointed. This is book 2 in a fun romance series, which has great characters that make you not want to quit listening. The storyline was an easy read and entertaining. I am looking forward to listening to the next book in the series!

I received a free review copy of this audiobook and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Such a sweet tale

It was like a fairy tale but with a more mature and spicy aspect to it. I loved that their love story was so true that no matter how much time and distance passed, it remained strong.

The Scottish Accent Melts Me

I so loved this story, strong woman who has born struggle and is willing to endure. When the father of her child finally shows up after years of being presumed dead, she has a few choice words for him. Full of adventure, and the slow seduction of his wife really made my heart melt. I read the book first and then listened to the audio, the narrator is really great and makes the characters come alive.
