Summary

A prince hiding his identity and a woman hiding hers - and sparks will fly when they have only each other to rely on....  

Prince Éduard of Aviroux is hunting down the Great Whisperer, the spy helping the French nobility escape the guillotine, and he’s so close when thwarted by the delectable Giselle. In all his years, he has never seen a woman like her: resourceful, cunning, and ready for a fight.   

What he doesn't realize is that she's just the spy for whom he's looking. Now trapped on an island together with food running out fast, Giselle is attracting his notice for all the wrong reasons, and it surely won't be long before secrets, as well as clothes, start to fly.   

Will Éduard discover Giselle's terrible secret - or will he reveal some of his own? And can a perilous time with a prince ever lead to something more than just the heady delights of the flesh?   

This is the prequel to the Ravishing Regencies series.

Spies and romance

This was a fun listen. The storyline was charming and the characters were witty and clever. There was just enough flirting and steam to make things interesting. Overall a nice distraction.

Julia does a great job narrating. Her accents are great and easy to listen to. I'll enjoy listening to the rest of the series with her narration.

Great holiday listening

Stranded on a deserted island, Eduard and Giselle's suspicion of one another soon gives way to other feelings entirely. A short-but-saucy story to kick-off a series of interlinked (but relatively standalone) tales. 

I enjoyed this novella, but I did feel that Eduard and Giselle's instant-love was a little out of place as the connection didn't really build enough to support it quite so early on. I would have preferred the realisation to come later, when they parted on the island. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, after all! 

I also thought that Giselle's behaviour was rather incongruous with one purportedly 'innocent' prior to their first intimate encounter. I'm not sure that 'she's French!' is enough reason for her to approach the situation with such confident abandon, or so few concerns about ruination. Pregnancy would have cost her everything, including her main objective; finding her brother. That she gave this no pause seemed out of character for a spy living in her wits. 

The writing is rather clunky throughout with a lot of clumsy repetition, but it is not so bad as to hinder my enjoyment. (For example: "She managed to get out of the boat after grabbing a small dagger from the bottom of the boat." Or, "Eduard could hardly admit it to himself, but if he was honest with himself he was a bit afraid of her.")

The narrator, Julia Eve, put in an engaging performance once more, handling the French accents well and contributing to the sense of peril in the more turbulent moments. 

I'd recommend this audiobook to people who like HEA's, flamboyant historical romances, and the idea of being castaway with a handsome prince. The perfect holiday listening for a day on the beach! 

*I received this audiobook free of charge in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Loved the prince & Giselle

Ahh, a prince trying to escape the guillotine finds himself island bound after things go wrong. Fortunately he's stuck with the brilliant Giselle. Things get hairy, intimate and steamy before rescue. Prince Eduard doesn't know Giselle has secrets that my ruin the romance growing between the two. Great story by Emilly and performance by Julia Eve. I recommend this audiobook.

Enjoyable story, deceptions almost derail love

In a world of danger, two souls find each other, although they are being deceptive. This deception almost cost them their opportunity for love. Giselle was a strong woman, doing what she had to in order to protect family. I loved how Eduard wanted to help Giselle. Julia Eve put feeling into her narration. I have been enjoying this series.

I received a copy of this audiobook as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.

I loved it!

This was my first Emily EK Murdoch's book. Peril With a Prince is the prequel to the Ravishing Regencies Series. The story is original, funny, sexy, intriguing, and captivating, filled with adventure and action. Prince Éduard of Aviroux and Giselle, the Great Whisperer, are great characters. They share an instant attraction/love, and a hot chemistry. Julia Eve did a great job with the narration. I enjoyed listening to this audiobook.

Good Regency Romance

This time the female is the spy. Or is she?

Lots of twists and a good story line.

Narrator has a good accent.


This book was a gift and this is my honest review.

Splendidly Done!

I originally read this delightful story in November 2018. Goodness gracious, it seems so long ago - so many wonderful stories ago - and today I finished listening to the audiobook version, kindly gifted to me by the narrator, Julia Eve.
It still held me captivated! I am very happy to say that not only is the story and its characters and plot well put together but the narration is splendidly done and really helped conjure up some very vivid pictures of what was happening as the book progressed.
So, even if you have read this book before, do yourself a favor and listen to this audio - I highly recommend it!
