Summary

Will Dorning, as an earl's spare, has accepted the thankless duty of managing his rambunctious younger siblings, though Will's only true companions are the dogs he's treasured since boyhood. When aristocratic London is plagued with a series of dognappings, Will's brothers are convinced that he's the only person who can save the stolen canines from an awful fate.

Shy, bookish Lady Susannah Haddonfield has no patience with loud, smelly beasts of any species, but must appear to like dogs so as not to offend her sister's only marital prospect. Susannah turns to Will, an acquaintance from her most awkward adolescent years, to teach her how to impersonate a dog fancier. Will has long admired Susannah, though he lacks the means to offer for her, and, yet, as they work together to rescue the purloined pets, it's loyal, dashing Will who steals Susannah's heart.

Contains mature themes.

Oh for the love of dogs.....

So very uninteresting listen: people with the dogs names and dogs with names of humans - eventually it was hard to tell them apart.

Will’s true Wish

I liked this book a lot. The plot is original and the dogs add life to the book. The dialogue was engaging and the story moved on quickly. This is the first book for the author and I am already downloading the next. The narrator was exceptional!

Loved this book.

5 stars here. I read lots of regency novels, and enjoy many of them, but this was a really fun book. Both the hero and heroine were likeable, and it was full of Interesting and honorable characters that I was able to wholeheartedly like, Enough suspense to hold my interest without the high level of tension or unpleasant violent events which can create an unpleasant experience for me as the reader. Even all the dogs got a happily ever after. The only negative for me is that my preference is for the bedroom details to remain private, however at least there were only a few of those unnecessarily detailed graphic sex scenes, and I was able to easily fast forward past them to avoid sharing those type of private details, without missing any of the story line.

Calling all 🐶 lovers

Good sweet story. But if you’re a dog lover, this is definitely the book for you. Hero is a Champions of dogs 🐕 and a blue stocking wall flower.
