Summary

Unjustly labeled a flirt, Kitty Beaucroft is in need of a fiancé. Lord Philip Butler's father wants him to settle down before he can become a landowner. With no intention of following through, Kitty and Philip enter into a temporary engagement as a means to an end. Unfortunately, someone knows the truth and is determined to expose them. Will the ruse turn into a romance before it's too late?

A good wholesome story

I like this book because it didn’t depend on sex to make it salacious. The story was very well read and very well written.

Clean book

This is my 1st book by this author so I can only speak to this book. How refreshing to find a clean book that has good romance but keeps it clean and keeps the language clean. She also kept my interest and the narrator did an outstanding job. Well done!

Wonderful start to the series!

I really enjoy historical romance, it's one of the sub genres I will go to that cleanses my thoughts. This one is light and fun, and the characters easy to like. Kitty is being pushed into getting married by her family, but the suitors being set for her are not to her liking. Phillip is trying to find his way, he is the second in line in his family and is always the one getting in trouble. When these two bump into each other, it is evident that there is chemistry. But being from different statuses, they are not meant to be together. The ruse they set up is sure to be successful...or is it? Give this a listen, you are sure to love Phillip, be frustrated at times with Kitty and love to hate her suitors!

Suzanne G Rogers has written a wonderful love story, bringing two unlikely people together. It’s my first book by her, and with its throughly enjoyable plot it will not be my last. Narrated by the very talented Helen Taylor, she brought this cast of characters to life each with a definite voice and personality.

Delightful Listen!

I really enjoyed listening to this romance. The premise of causing a scandal to avoid a scandal was unique. I loved the attraction of Kitty and Phillip from the very beginning. Suzanne G. Rogers is a new author to me, while I've listened to and enjoyed Helen Taylor previously. The characters had depth and substance. I loved how Kitty didn't want to settle with a marriage or conform to society dictates. The premise of marrying for love was not typical of the times in this book. I found the machinations and contrivances to be very interesting in this book. The banter in this book was great too! I wish the story would have included exactly what the Grandmother said to Kitty , but the line that was included had me laughing out loud. I hope the next book in this series comes out in audio as I want to hear what happens next. This book is a standalone listen and features a HEA. I hope the author writes more stories about these wonderful characters! The narrator did a wonderful performance with her distinguishable voices for the various characters. I will definitely listen to more books by both author and narrator in the future.

Fabulous!!

I have really started enjoying audible books immensely and this story by Suzanne G Rogers is a prime example of what makes this medium so spectacular! The narrator Helen Taylor was brilliant in bringing the characters alive with her voices and subtle changes of emotions and language. I adored Philip and Kitty. She just wanted to marry for love and her family was pressuring her to just get married. She has been labeled a flirt and the last suitor she turned down is spreading rumors about her and she gets the cut from society.
Philip is a second son who trying to buy a property from his father so he can have something of his own and make it a success. But is father will only do the deal if he shows he is ready to settle down and marry so he needs to find a lady pronto.
When the man she spurned starts trouble, Philip steps in to save Kitty and one thing leads to another and they start a ruse of being engaged. That "ruse" creates all king of havoc and it seems they may be getting wed for real! Loved, Loved, Loved this story and could not wait for the second Beaucroft sister's story!

Decent story

Some overused plot devices but an enjoyable, clean romance nonetheless. I appreciate when hero's and heroins have depth of character.

Pleasantly Surprised. Really enjoyed this!

I love when I come across an author I’ve never heard of that I can thoroughly enjoy. I had no idea what to expect, it popped up in my recommended books. This had a great story line with likable characters. Also had great narration! Sometimes books from this time period have awful boring narration, this one did not.

Great start

Really enjoyed this book. This was a nice engaging read with fun characters. This is my first book by Suzanne Rogers. And, I look forward to the next. But, I'm a huge fan of Helen Taylor. She does such an amazing job.

Ruse & Romance

I have not listened to a historical romance in a while and this was so refreshing. The characters are fun and you could not help but all in love with Philip and Kitty's grandmother. The Ruse to save Kitty's reputation gets out and in true fashion of this time period things get a bit hectic. I must say some people get what's coming to them. Helen Taylor does a fantastic job weaving this tale for you and makes it so easy to get lost in it. The story is a short listen and well worth your time you will feel as if you have stepped back in time.
