    Story
    "All Misunderstandings, Cross-purposes, Ugh!!"

    This story was saved by its good narration. It tells the tale of the antagonistic getting together of Lady Jayne and Lord Ledbury. Both are on the marriage mart and see each other as non-options for matrimony. The antagonism between insulated and beautiful Lady Jayne and military man, Lord Richard Ledbury resulted in engaging repartee that brought a slight smile to my face at various points throughout the story. But it wasn’t enough.
    The author’s attempt to make listeners feel pity or something for Jayne due to her upbringing was completely insufficient to that end. It was a joke and failed to make Jayne more likeable or viewed as a sympathetic character. And the story was a bit ridiculous at points in large part b/c the misunderstandings went on too long. And then Richard was far too sappy at the end as the story came full circle all-too suddenly. It was wrapped up all-too quickly and neatly.
    Finally, WHY WAS THIS BOOK LISTED IN EROTICA? IT WAS SOOOOO FAR from any kind of erotica. I think it had about 2 kisses, and one sex scene near the end of the book. This same book is also listed in Romance/Historical, so maybe an error was made. I felt duped.

    Story
    "Totally irritating and boring."
    What disappointed you about An Escapade and an Engagement?

    Like hitting replay button. Misunderstanding drawn out way too long with no plot.


    What was most disappointing about Annie Burrows’s story?

    Story could have been written in 25 pages.


    What does Julia Franklin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good character distinction. Men sounded like men.


    What character would you cut from An Escapade and an Engagement?

    Millie after first few pages.


    Any additional comments?

    Will try to return this one, very disappointing.
