Summary

The follow-up to the No. 1 Sunday Times bestseller The Mister, a passionate and thrilling love story from E L James, author of the phenomenal bestselling Fifty Shades Trilogies.

Alessia regards her husband through heavy-lidded eyes.

You'll have to fight for him. Her mother's words from their call this morning ring through her head. And fight, she will. Using every available weapon she has.

She loves him. She knows this. She wants him.

And she wants him to want her.

What happens once the glass slipper fits...?

Maxim Trevelyan, reluctant Earl of Trevethick, has pursued the woman he loves to the wilds of Albania. Having fought for and won her, he now has to wed her, at the sharp end of a shotgun.

But can a reformed rake like Maxim ever make a good husband - or will his own notorious reputation and the scandalous secrets of his aristocratic family destroy his new-found happiness?

Alessia Demachi has defied and outwitted kidnappers and traffickers, and won the heart of the man she loves, but can she make this marriage work? Confronted by Maxim's lurid past, his forbidding family, and the looks and whispers of London's elite, will she ever be seen as Maxim's countess - or will she always be his former cleaner?

From the majestic mountains of Albania, through the rural idyll of the English countryside, to the shady glamour of contemporary London, The Missus is a spellbinding journey of love, longing, acceptance and redemption.

Loved the Mister, but the Missus surpassed it a smidge, beautifully written and narrated. I feel a bit bereft now it has ended.

This series of books aren’t the best they story was predictable and the voice of maxim is awful. His voice really is try hard posh and not natural and the accents are dreadful.

Annoying attempts at accents!

I enjoyed the mister but found this a hard listen.
The narrator's attempts at Albanian accents were hard to listen to. At times the male narrator sounded more like Dracula!
I found myself skipping through the sex scenes simply because there were SO many of them! It just became tedious to listen to & added nothing to the story. I would rather the story was padded out more.
I listened through to the end, although I found it a little predictable. In all it was ok, but I wouldn't listen to it again. Not a great follow up to a promising story.

E L Jame took her time on this one.

I'm sorry, I must admit The Mister was better, but this story wasn't far behind. A little slow at the beginning, it soon got moving though, then I got more into it. It's still a great story, and then my emotions started.
The narration was amazing as always.
