Summary

Turned out by his father after a tragic scandal, Lord Michael Knightly has grown into a powerful, but self-made man. With the whispers and stares that still follow him, he's been shut out of respectable society. He would rather be anywhere but London. Then he meets Lady Aldora, a young woman who mistakes him for his brother, the Marquess of St. James.

Enjoyable and yet lacking an interesting storyline

Cute but fell short with a satisfying storyline. Love began after only a couple of 5 minute interactions and although I did not dislike the story I felt it lacked substance.

Ok

Next to 0 romance. Caldwell has a look many more romantic books it was a disappointment to hear this one. This should be rated as "sweet" for teenagers

Nice Quick Story. Good Narration.

This was a nice quick story. I enjoyed it. I did think there was more internal dialogue by Michael and Aldora but otherwise good.

They made a good match. I liked the story line and plot. There wasn't a lot of filler nonsense either.

As for the narration, it was good. I like Tim Campbell. He does a good job on the women's voices and has a nice reading voice which is kind of sexy too.

Great book and awesome narration..



So, Christi Caldwell is always a hit-or-miss for me and this time it was a hit. I liked everything about this story. I mean, a little bit of it was some crazy thinking on Michael’s part but at least CC didn’t beat you over the head with it, as she likes to do. Michael was in a duel with Lord Everworth and Everworth doesn’t like it when Michael won’t duel with him so he fires at Michael’s back and Michael turned and fired and Everworth was killed. Why CC wanted to have Michael think he was a “murderer” is beyond me. Then his family turned on him and banished him to Wales, where he proceeded to make himself filthy rich, so that was good.

I really did like Michael and Aldora, and I liked his brother Wilburn, too. I liked Aldora’s twin sisters, Katherine and Anne, and her brother Benedict. Her mother was just an unlikable idiot.

There were two kisses in this story and that’s all.

As to the narration: I simply love Tim Campbell. He gives the men such great voices and the women sound like women. What more can you ask for?

Impression

A cute fun heartwarming tale. It shows how children in those time had the responsibility of fixing all the mistakes their parents made and yet how it was possible to rise above these responsibilities and find happiness. Rules of society however they appeared truly could be pushed aside by those of strong heart and mind.

Just ok

I like Tim Campbell and he does a good job. Story was ok but not great. Also who determines what is seductive, flirty...etc. I have read 'flirty' that had quite a bit of sex and this 'seductive ' had a kiss...maybe two. Anyway. it's ok but Christi Caldwell hasn't really moved me. This story is sort of lame. Glad it was part of escape package. didn't waste a credit.
