A lively step up on most romances of this type. An odd pair of lovers put through all the usual misunderstandings and will they/wont they get together moments; you know they will of course and when they do, it?s all the better. The narrator is an expert with this type of book and knows just how to bring it to life. Light, bright and enjoyably silly.

I have to confess, I love Judith Ivory books, she is (IMHO) one of the best authors in the genre. In fact, I read this book in paper a few years back, so got it as an Audible book as I knew it would be a sure-thing (well-written, interesting characters). Sadly, I have to admit this is probably the weakest of the Ivory books I have read (check out Beast and Sleeping Beauty for the best), but that said, a medicore Ivory book still rises to the top of the historical romance titles.
The story is a little slow to start, and towards the end there is a "misunderstanding" to move the plot along (I find such devices overused in the genre, but Ivory handles it well). If you are looking for a well-written Regency romance, with a few touches of humour, and some memorable characters, then you cannot go wrong here.
And the narrator does well -- our hero is an American, and heroine a British aristrocrat. She keeps the accents straight, and adds to the telling of the story.
Overall - 4.5 stars.

This is one of the best romances I have listened to.
It is Nobility meets a Cowboy at its finest.
The narrator is one of the best I have heard, (even though you can hear her making strange noises, maybe swallowing?) Her changing from a southern drawl to an english accent is effortless, and accurate, and before you know it, you are hooked.
I do not normally leave reviews, but felt I needed to, I wanted to make sure there was another 5 stars added.
