Summary

An arranged marriage, a choice to love, and the hope for happily ever after. This is a sweet and clean regency romance.

Rebecca Devon lives under the severe eye of her aunt and the iron will of her father. Though she wears what she is told and befriends the people they choose for her, she spends every moment longing to do as she wishes. Knowing freedom will only come through marriage, her hopes for a happy union are stolen away when her father arranges her marriage to a complete stranger.

Christian Hundley, Lord Easton, has learned the hard way that English society won't accept a person who looks or behaves differently than their ideal. He has hidden himself away from scornful eyes for years until his aging grandfather takes matters in hand and finds Christian a bride. Knowing he must agree to the marriage, Christian shields his heart. If the whole of society cannot accept him, why should his bride?

Rebecca knows she must have love in her life, but Christian is convinced there is nothing so fraught with danger and pain as entrusting one’s heart to another. Rebecca does everything she can to change his mind, but Christian is determined to remain aloof. 

Can an arranged marriage ever be anything other than a business partnership?

Make Miss Devon's Choice your next choice

Miss Devon's choice is a fun addition to the Branches of Love series. The story is captivating, The narration is exceptionally done, adding depth and interest. The book catches up with the previous main characters of the series which is always enjoyable. Miss Devon's Choice could easily stand on it's own but knowing the other characters backstory definitely adds to the story.

This book is so sweet and lovely. A really good story and a great narrator. She has a very soothing voice and I'd listen to her anytime. I'll be buying more Sally Britton books for sure.

I loved this book!

I LOVED this book! I cannot emphasise enough how much I have been enjoying Ms. Brittons novels - the entire series has been a delight to read & now I just love listening to them! I have found them to be thoroughly enjoyable.
If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend reading/listening to these books in order before this one, especially since nearly all of the characters from the previous stories come together again in this one. Plus, they’re so easy and enjoyable to listen to.
I did not want the story to end but I was not disappointed either since it ended happily & with the prospect of another story to come. I can hardly wait!
This is a completely clean novel/series. I would happily recommend it to anyone!

Great Historical Romance!

Great narrator! Fun storyline. I love a good, sassy heroine. Especially one who takes what she can't control and makes the best of what she can.

A tender and sweet love story!

I absolutely adore Rebecca Devon and Christian Hundley. Theirs is a love story that I wanted to devour but my time was limited that I slowly soaked it all in. I listened to the audiobook and really enjoyed the narrator. She did a great job with the characters as well as adding emotion into the different scenes of the book.

I had a lot happening in life that kept me pretty busy with very limited reading and listening time but I couldn't stop turning my thoughts to Rebecca and Christian. The sweet and tender scenes between these two, especially with their backgrounds kept drawing me in.

I loved the scenes with music in them. Especially when Christian finally played for Rebecca.

I loved Rebecca's spirit. She was being forced into a marriage she didn't want but she made her choice to make the most of the situation and find love and friendship with her future husband. Of course that doesn't play into his plans at all. These two and their interactions and walls and hurts and slow budding friendship is a must read for any Regency fan out there. *Happy Sigh*

Christian may not have wanted anyone to break down his barriers but he still was a good man and a true gentleman. I loved every time he made it abundantly clear that Rebeccas was to be his wife and that she had better be treated as such and that she was under his protection. Seriously, if you haven't read this one, do yourself a favor and read it now! I loved it! Probably my favorite book by Sally Britton. I say probably because I haven't read them all, but out of all the ones I've read and loved, this is up there at the top. And with how much I enjoyed it, it'll probably stay at the top even after reading and enjoying her other books.

Content: Clean

Happy Listening!!!

Loved this book

I loved this book. It's awell written and professionally performed sweet Regency romance. It's part 5 of the series, but you don't have to have read the other books to enjoy this one. I received a free code to listen to this book and loved it. I'm now going back to listen to the first books in the series. So whether you choose to read it first, or read the series in order, I highly recommend this book.

Miss Devon's Choice

In an era where marriage was about station property and little to due with the heart,
Sally Britton captures the era very well. The narrator Kim Bretton has a unique voice who did well with this story.

Miss Devon's Choice

Loved this book. The family dynamics were something else, but the way Christian took control, made everything come together. Great clean romance, looking forward to going back and reading the other books in this series.

An absolute winner and pleasure to my ears

Miss Devon's Choice was a fantastic story. I couldn't help falling in love with Rebecca and Christian. I felt their pain and cheered for their successes. Both have been dictated through life by family who should love and encourage them. This leads Rebecca to long for the love she has missed and makes Christian fearful and guard against the love that destroyed. The narration is fabulous and even when reading I could hear the voices from the narration in my head. They felt so real I am sad to part with Miss Devon and Lord Easton! I highly recommend this book get your copy today!!!!

Nice and sweet as all her novels

I enjoyed it (mostly) but parts are still a bit over the top.

I give it 4 stars because:
- I did not like how the narrator was pronouncing the sentences in Italian (overly dramatic in my opinion).
- The story has the same issue as almost all Ms. Britton’s novels - at certain point characters start acting irrationally for no other reason then to build some artificial tension arround it (I do not like drama, and prefer when characters remain sensible).

Other then that, it was a sweet book and a nice passtime.

Works well as a stand-alone

*spoiler alert*

Story: (5 stars)

Miss Devon makes a decision and follows through. Her stubbornness to her cause finally wins over her betrothed who then protects her from all the horrid members of her family whilst bringing the loving members of her family into her inner circle.

I liked how the angst in this story vacillated between the two characters in a very believable way as they came to know one another better and fall in love.

I did feel that the grandfather should have been dealt with in a more detailed manner. He was a horrid old man and, in the beginning, Christian bowed to his every demand. As a reader, I wanted to see Christian and Rebecca stand up to him as they did to her controlling relatives.

A well-written story and, even though this is book 5, I was able to easily follow the characters who must have been the heroines in some of the other books.

Narrator: (4.5 stars)
Very good narrator! She had a variety of British accents at her disposal and read at a good pace with expression. Many of her characters had an inherent laugh in their voices and I always love it when a character’s cheerfulness comes through the voice of the narrator. (Her Italian accent seemed a bit forced, the word, “carina” sounding especially British in pronunciation.)

beautiful sweet story

A wonderfully well written nice heartwarming sweet story.  This nice flowing clean romance was engaging with a nice balance of emotions. It's a wonderful journey as Rebecca slowly breaks through defenses looking past the disfigurement and allusiveness. The characters are sympathetic and compelling in a beautifully narrated story.
