    When Jonah Armstrong, the Earl of Haywood, returns to London after a three year absence, his plan is simple: reenter society, find a wealthy bride, and save the Haywood name from ruin. He has no time for distractions. Yet when he encounters Lady Cecelia Randolph, Jonah can’t resist a flirtation. After all, his feud with her brother, the Duke of Hadleigh, necessitated Jonah’s recent exile; he’s entitled to his revenge. But within seconds Jonah realizes he’s underestimated Cecelia.

    Enjoyed the story but loved the main female's character and attitude. So refreshing to have a positive happy female character. Enjoyed all of the characters in the book, not bad.

    1st book in new series and i am glad i downloaded it. Different story concept which i enjoyed. New species holds your interest as you travel down the road from there captivation to there freedom and the trials that lay ahead for them. I love the New Species characters, they've survived and focus on adapting and living in peace, respecting humans even when there hunted by some cult extremest. Narration excellent, will continue with book 2, hopefully the series will continue to be great.

    This one was hard to review as i actually loved the concept of the story and characters. In saying this, i enjoyed the start and slowly started getting annoyed with the intensely continual drawn out detail of the characters emotions/thoughts that seemed to go on and on, with the female smarting over being protected and not asked for her opinion, parts were good but i just felt flat through most of it and the ending was quick and over. Shame as it would have been a great series if more dynamic and fast.

    He's different from any man she's ever known. However, she's sworn never to risk her heart again. Brooke Baker, sold as a mail-order bride, looks to her future with dread but firm resolve. If she survived Uncle Jackson, she can survive anyone. When Sky Jordan hears that his nefarious cousin has sent for a mail-order bride, he knows he has to prevent the marriage. No woman deserves to be left to that fate. Still, he's as surprised as anyone to find himself standing next to her before the minister.

    Glad i chose this book. I really enjoyed it, easy listen and and past events are woven clearly and easily into current time. There is a lot of reference to Jesus Christ, as he is the hero's guiding light, and i found myself truly enjoying the way this creates the journey for the characters, not over the top but touching. Makes you think and feel. Enjoyable.

    This audible was very disappointing for me, from the start i had great difficulty listening to this audible and actually found myself drifting away and not even taking any interest in it as it was playing. I liked the concept of the story line however narration just didnt suit characters and overall just could not get in to it. I tried but alas i failed, unfortunately i wont even finish listening to complete audible. Will request credit refund on this one.

    Another good story to the series. Initially took me awhile to get going as it was a bit slow but became more interesting and enjoyable with some good humorous bits here and there. Felt like so much was going on then within a short time it ended. Overall enjoyed, love that i get to catch up on the various characters of the series that are apart of each new book. Narrator was great, enjoyable and easy to listen too.

    Defiant Highland beauty Fiona Sinclair is shocked by her brothers’ treachery. To seal a fragile truce, they have traded her hand in marriage to their sworn enemy, a man she has never met, a man she was raised to despise. With no choice but to wed, Fiona makes her own private vow: Though she may sacrifice her freedom, she will never surrender her heart. Commanded into marriage by the king, Myles Campbell is no more willing than his reluctant bride. Still, she is a rare beauty, passionate enough to warm even the coldest marriage bed.

    A Marriage of Convenience: Such is the agreement forged between Lady Jessica Stanton and Simon Warland, Earl of Northcote. Jessica needs a husband strong enough to protect her inheritance from her avaricious stepbrother. Simon needs money to restore the family legacy his father squandered. United by necessity, emotional attachment isn’t part of the deal.

    Liked the idea of the storyline if written with more depth, not angry & suspect attitude from main male character, got a bit over the top at times, it's like yep got his issue's let's get on with story. More research necessary on the time period, some aspects in story were not of the time period, being correct in time period does add depth to the overall story, your there in it, so you wish to experience it correctly. Overall, ok, liked some aspects of story but wouldn't re-listen to it.
