Its silly but the word that comes to mind is charming. I'd just come off a Sandra Brown high. It took awhile to get into the story. It was an easy read. I did eventually get a connection with the characters.
It made me smile.
It felt like you were spying on a couple as a romance developed and became a love affair.
Olivia and Harry of course! Olivia because she's just so funny in her little ways and Harry because of his wit
her voice make them all seems alive
the kidnaping of Olivia
Totally addicted to Audible.
I love buying books on sale to discover authors I have not read and this has been a delightful purchase. A little romance, a little intrigue and a lot of humor. Rosalyn Landor is a favorite narrator and she brings just the right tone to this story.
I enjoyed it.
Yes, I would recommend it. It was different than most love stories, and although the first part was a little slow, the second part was interesting. It was worth listening to.
I enjoyed the humor.
The performance by Rosalyn Landor made this story. Her ability to change her voice between male and female were exceptional, making the story interesting. Without her, I think it would have been hard to follow.

I listened to this while I was outside staining my deck. It was a pleasant piece of candy that needed no attention to details. The perfect novel for the mindless task at hand. I don't think I will waste credits on another of her books, however. I fear they will all be the same? More interesting authors and characters out there.
For me... The narration was a tad annoying and the story was very thin and predictable. This book doesn't compare to other historical love stories. Good thing I got it on sale.
This story is not a story. There's nothing there. It's kind of a Victorian bodice ripper that makes fun of a ghothic bodice ripper, set in the very boring life of an insipid Victorian bimbo. I'm sorry I stuck it out until the end. The reader does what she can but her style dragged this ordeal even more.
I don't understand the high reviews at all.
I read so I can write
I purchased this book some months ago but for some reason it got lost in my library. Dug it out this morning and spent the entire day listening and laughing.
How fun it is to have a historical romance with great humor. I laughed out loud many times.
Roslyn Landor is at her usual best. Julia Quinn hit a home run with this one.
