I am quiet and love being comfortable. I love curling up in a corner either reading or listening to a nice romantic book.

    If there were other stars I would have rated this book higher! I love Julia Quinn's book but this one if off the charts. She did an excellent job with the story telling and Rosalyn the narrator did an excellent job. I hope that she goes further and gives us "Daisy" and the other girls story.........I am so looking forward to that.

    Noble Britton suffered greatly at the hands of his first wife, and he refuses to fall into the same trap again. This time he intends to marry a quiet, biddable woman who will not draw attention to herself or cause scandal. Gillian Leigh's honest manner and spontaneous laughter attract him immediately. It matters little that she is accident-prone; he can provide the structure necessary to guide her. But unconventional, his new bride turns the tables on him, wreaking havoc on his orderly life.

    This book was very enjoyable. This is my first read from this author and I look forward to more. I can't wait to read about Charlotte's story. I was passing out laughing with the scene in the bedroom at the ball where everyone kept hiding when there was a knock on the door! Loved it so much. Noble was kinda harsh and weird in the beginning. I warmed towards him the more I listened and his accident prone wife was just lovely. I absolutely recommend this book.

    I was pleased with this final book in the series. It was nice that Miss Pym was able to get her man and be a married woman also. Benjamin gets to be with them and live in London, which is his heart's desire. I also like that she got to see Mrs Clarence and was her maid of honor at the wedding.

    Lovely but penniless Harriet Metcalf is aghast when a nobleman’s will names her guardian of his snobbish twin daughters when they come out during the next London Season! But is innocent Harriet wily enough for the intrigues of the ton—or its two most eligible bachelors, the Marquess of Huntingdon and Lord Vere?

    This book was very good and well written except that the naivety of the heroine was so overbearing! I couldn't believe how gullible she was. The hero supposedly who is the marquis was a brute. The servants made the book a delight, thank goodness for them and their indifference. They did well putting stuff to rights after the debacle that the maid and evil goddaughters began. Lindy Nettleton did a great job with the narration.

    When Raelynd Schellden and her sister are caught in the stables with the notorious McTiernay twins, her father sees not scandal, but opportunity. The future of his clan is uncertain, and a double engagement - even under false pretenses - will lend security to his people and protect his beloved daughters from power-mad fools. But Raelynd's designated intended interests her far less than his quietly powerful brother, Crevan, a man born to lead.

    Story

    I think the author out did herself with seven brothers and is now lacking in motivation for the remaining stories to come. The first three books were pretty good and I enjoyed them but I found myself really digging deep just to have finished this book. It was dragged out,a bit meaningless and lacked a lot of spirit. The author could have done a better job. We barely had any passionate scenes and at one point I was lost and had to remember what was happening and where everyone was. If this is how book 4 was, I shudder to imagine what to expect in book 5. Maybe I will be wrong but we will see.

    It seems as if there will be no need to find a husband for Diana, the fifth daughter of Charles Armitage, the hard-drinking huntsman and country vicar. For Diana shares her father's passion for the hunt, secretly posing as a man in order to participate in a sport that is considered too vulgar for a lady in Regency England. Her four elder sisters have married well, but Diana fears she will never be as desirous to wed a man as she is to be one. She was born to have a man's freedom to do and say what she wishes, to move about without restraint - or so she thinks until, disguised as David Armitage, she gets a bitter taste of tawdry town life.

    Story

    I think as these sister stories carried on Marion (the author) made the stories more and more outrageous. First, the Vicar needs to be thoroughly chastised, sleeping around, not taking care of his parish and daughters. In this book his wife who was always ill with some ailment or another and died. Surprising but maybe not, this daughter is another naive, self centered and holier than though person. The best part of this book was when the butler said "nothing would make him open the door to the drawing room unless summoned to. No sight in all his years, was worth that", pertaining to his mistress having sex with the Colonel. I have gotten this far by all means I might as well read the last book and finish the series.

    What clever woman would want a man like Lord Harry Desire? Why, he was clearly a lummox - languid, vain, and bland. Not even his beautiful face could redeem him. But he stood to inherit a vast fortune, and that was good enough for Deirdre's father, a spendthrift vicar who arranged the match to rescue himself from imminent financial collapse. Leave it to Deirdre to contrive an escape, a quick elopement with her one true love, the dashing Guy Wentwater.

    Once again I have listened to another story of the Armitage sisters. I honestly don't know why I am still listening to these books but I can't help myself. And again no surprised Deirdre is vain, self centered and thinks only about her wants and needs. However, I must say with the greedy Vicar for a father and a mother who is always faking illness (in my opinion) what else can we expect? As a vicar's daughter, should you even be sneaking out to meet a man at night? What is going on with vicar's daughters?? Did I miss something in the church? Oh well, onto the next chapter.

    Desperate to escape his mother's matchmaking, Vincent Hunt, Viscount Darleigh, flees to a remote country village. But even there, another marital trap is sprung. So when Miss Sophia Fry's intervention on his behalf finds her unceremoniously booted from her guardian's home, Vincent is compelled to act. He may have been blinded in battle, but he can see a solution to both their problems: marriage. At first, quiet, unassuming Sophia rejects Vincent's proposal. But when such a gloriously handsome man persuades her that he needs a wife of his own choosing as much as she needs protection from destitution, she agrees.

    This is one of those romances you want to read over and over again. It was refreshing and interesting without a villainous plot to it. Sophia and Darleigh were great together. Wish it was longer so we could have known what baby they got and what happened maybe in a years time but guess it is left up to the imagination. This book does not indicate but it would made a great follow on with some of the friends. Overall, a good day's listen.

    This book turned out to be more than I expected. It was well written and I was delighted with the narration. Phil (my first listening to him) did a great job. I can't wait for the other books or that there would be more books in this series. I assume so just because this is book 1 but I am also wondering if there is going to be another guardian or if Rowan got a daughter that carried on as guardian. There are so many possibilities but since King Edwards wants the Targe so badly, we know he is going to go after it. Can't wait!!

    His feelings toward her were warm. She turned their conversation over and over in her mind, reading into every casual answer a double meaning, hints of a growing passion that were held in check. From the moment young Annabelle met her sister Minerva's intended, Lord Sylvester, she developed a secret passion for him that obsessed her. Now she was determined to take him away from Minerva no matter what. But she hadn't reckoned on Sylvester's best friend, Peter, who fell in love with Annabelle and decided to tame her.

    Story

    Like I said with book 1, the girls in this series is as naive and gullible as you can get. I am still up in smoke on whether to love them or barely like them. I believe back in this century, some women were too sheltered. Besides being young, Annabel was contrite and vain. It was all about her and what she wanted and I believe that is the idea because as much as you want to put it down, you also want to keep listening so that you know what happens in the end. Onward to book 3 for me. The narrator I have not mentioned because I am barely tolerating her and I have no choice as she is the narrator for all the books in the series.

    Minerva marks the delightful debut of The Six Sisters, a family saga in six volumes that will recount the romantic adventures of the six marriageable daughters of a country vicar, the Reverend Charles Armitage, in Regency England. The eldest, Minerva, is enchantingly beautiful - but a prude. She lives in the country looking after her siblings while her mother reclines on a chaise longue happily inventing new malaises.

    Story

    I began listening to this book and gradually got more and more interested more so that I will listening to the entire six books. However, if they all follow the same storyline like this one with such naive girls, I may just die. The Vicar also needs to be flogged and those darn hounds he keeps purchasing and worshiping over his family and parishioners needs to be sold off. I wanted to pull my hair out when Minerva went on the drive not knowing what she was heading into and died laughing when she walked in on Lady Godiva and started reading then again when she went back in and heard her with the colonel. However, six daughters and I am sure he is going to sell them all off until someone takes him into hand. I assume this series is going to have me laughing and seething mad all the same.
