Summary

Miss Chloe Fong has plans for her life, lists for her days, and absolutely no time for nonsense. Three years ago, she told her childhood sweetheart that he could talk to her once he planned to be serious. He disappeared that very night.  

Except now he’s back. Jeremy Wentworth, the Duke of Lansing, has returned to the tiny village he once visited with the hope of wooing Chloe. In his defense, it took him years of attempting to be serious to realize that the endeavor was incompatible with his personality. 

All he has to do is convince Chloe to make room for a mischievous trickster in her life, then disclose that in all the years they’ve known each other, he’s failed to mention his real name, his title…and the minor fact that he owns her entire village. 

Only one thing can go wrong: everything.

Loved the...

Loved the laughter, the passion, the ethnicity in this book.
Enjoyed the story and how it is told with another race in mind (asian decent).
Even with the problems of racism, culture, ethnicity and a persons station.
This book has everything needed for a great read/listen!

Courtney Milan

I listen to audiobooks a lot and have listen to all Courtney Milan audiobooks and many other authors to many to name. This audiobook was so well done between Courtney Milan story line and Mary Jane Wells did an incredible job narrating ... Can’t wait until for the next.

Delightful

I haven’t been inspired to write a review in a while, but this book was so enjoyable I had to. The characters are endearing, the story is interesting, the banter is wonderful, and the performance engaging. I highly recommend a listen (or two)!

Good book if you're looking for a little realism

This was not my favorite historical romance book for sure, but probably just because I wasn't in the mood for realism at the moment. The plot was cute and I loved the characters after a while, I just struggled to stay engaged in the story for some reason. The narrator was absolute wonderful though, great job picking that one.

Couldn’t Finish

Ack! I’m almost 3 hours in and have no idea what’s going on. Maybe if I paid better attention when listening, but I suppose that’s the point? The banter/dialogue between all characters should have been engaging and interesting but instead I found myself forgetting I was even listening until I’d realize I missed several minutes entirely.

Narrator was wonderful, would have loved for the story and narration to just whisk me away, but alas, it did not. 😢

Delightful

Ingenious story of friendship & budding romance that draws on difficulties faced by Asian immigrants in 1800’s England. Starts a little slowly but stay with it! Mary Jane Wells performs it in her engaging manner that causes this recorded book to be a special delight.

Adorable and unforgettable

I loved every single character. There were times when I laughed out loud, times when I teared up, and times when I smiled like an idiot. The way Courtney Milan writes romance is so beautiful and pure and I’m so excited for the next book in the series!
