    Caroline Maxwell would like nothing more than to join her brother, Eddie, and his friend Jack Culhane on their adventures. While Jack and Eddie are off seeing the world, buying up businesses and building wildly successful careers, Caroline's stuck at home frightening off the men her mother hopes will ask for her hand in marriage. When her mother sets her sights on the questionable Lord Bremerton as a possible suitor, Caroline struggles with her instincts and the true nature of her heart. She longs for adventure, passion, love, and most of all...Jack Culhane, an unconventional Irish-American bachelor with new money and no title.

    I enjoyed this book. It's slightly more serious, not as much of a romp as some of their previous books but thoroughly enjoyable

    What's a duke to do when a carefully selected bride rejects him rather than marry without love? He salvages his pride by marrying the next woman who falls into his arms. Joyous Fiona MacQuarrie bewitched the Duke of Belmore the moment she appeared from nowhere and knocked him over...literally. Joyous MacQuarrie is a Scottish witch whose powers of white magic are not always easy for her to control. When Alec's pride makes him choose to marry her, Joy turns the life of the most serious and snobbish duke in England upside down.

    Story

    The narrator should go to dictionary dot com and search for livery and fete and click on the speaker icon to hear the correct pronunciation. Those two are the most obviously mispronounced words although there were quite a few others. Some of the characters' voices sounded the same and had dreadful accents.

    Meredith and Nina Whitson are as different as sisters can be. One stayed at home to raise her children and manage the family apple orchard: the other followed a dream and traveled the world to become a famous photojournalist. But when their beloved father fails ill, Meredith and Nina find themselves together again, standing alongside their cold, disapproving mother, Anya, who even now, offers no comfort to her daughters

    I enjoyed this book. The narrator was a bit over the top with the Russian accent but it didn't really detract from the story.

    Story

    The story was good. I've read other books by Carla Neggers and enjoyed them. The performance was so-so. It was difficult to distinguish the characters - almost like she forgot which one she was supposed to be - at times.

    Stephanie Laurens entices readers anew with each of her delectable Regency era novels, and this New York Times best-seller showcases Laurens at her captivating best. Charles Morwellan - eighth Earl of Meredith - knows he must marry, but he plans to do so on his own terms. So, after years of escaping the clutches of would-be wives, it is quite a shock when he is refused by the beautiful Sarah Conningham.

    The reader is superb. I always enjoy Stephanie Laurens' books, and Simon Prebble is my favorite reader of them. He always does all the characters very well. In this book, he made the hero so real that I felt like he was right next to me.
