AN UNUSUAL ACTION-PACKED REGENCY ADVENTURE
This was a sweeping tale that transports you from Italy to Morocco, back to Italy and then finally to England and it follows a relationship that slowly builds as distrust eventually leads to trust, then friendship and that happily leads to love.
Marcus (Ren) buys and saves Angelia (Lia) from the slave market but there are lots of hurdles to overcome before he can get his hands on her but when he does he just can't keep them off her. Plenty of passion, sex and romance as Lia involves Ren in her quest to get her brother and nursemaid back and he discovers some important secrets she failed to share. Likeable characters, good action packed storyline and some twists all this and with a few dislikable evil villains too.
This is actually a dual-narration by DK and Victoria Myers (the jury is still out as to whether I like or dislike a dual narrated listen) anyway...... WHY O WHY did VM give the heroine (who is Italian) an English accent??? everyone else in Italy had an accent - including her maid and brother, but Lia didn't - she had a posh English one which (sorry) but this annoyed the hell out of me.
Worth a credit? Absolutely YES and I'm eagerly looking forward to the next book.

WOW WHAT A LOVE STORY!!!
Would you consider the audio edition of Caversham's Bride: The Caversham Chronicles - Book One to be better than the print version?
YES!! The Narrators Dennis Kleinman and Victoria J. Mayers were the best Narrators I have ever listen too and I have listen to many audio books. They really brought the story alive and they could perform so many different voice. I felt like I was listen to a movie!
Who was your favorite character and why?
Can I pick two characters Ren the Duke of Halden and Lia aka Angelia aka Kamilah. I loved the H/H becasue they were intelligent and communicated and resolved there problems with each other. the listener/reader can see their love grow and develop.The lovemaking sex are hot an a bit erotic, but written with class Not cheesy. They are extremely well written character. All of the supporting characters are written extremely well too. You want to know them all!!
Have you listened to any of Dennis Kleinman and Victoria J. Mayers ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No but I will probably buy any audible book in the HR or PR genre that they narrate!!
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This book made me laugh and cry. It mostly made me happy becasue of the love Ren and Lia have for one another. It comes through as you are reading/listening.
Any additional comments?
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND CAVERSHAM'S BRIDE AUDIO ADDITION!!
Its the best narrated love story I have ever read so far. The story itself is very well written, fast paced romantic and adventurous. One of the best love stories for me this year. Sandy Raven the author is now on my must read list. I am already reading/listening to bk2 Already His!
