    "Everything I love about Eloisa James"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Phillipa was hilarious. Her character was candid and bold.


    What about Nicola Barber’s performance did you like?

    She made both the male and female characters seem believable and managed the accent of Wick well.

    "So Sweet"

    A great listen The story, the characters, the narrator.
    I LOVED the mother-in-law, she was hyserical.
    It's great when a romance novel has LOL scenes.

    "DELIGHTFUL"

    I wish it were longer. This was a happy romance about a young woman determined to control her own destiny. It was funny, never was there a dull moment and performed by one of my favorite narrator's.

    Story
    "3 ½ stars. Sweet, nice, enjoyable romance story."

    STORY BRIEF:
    Phillipa and Rodney had been friends since childhood. Their parents want them to marry. Phillipa does not want to marry Rodney and runs away. She loves babies and hears that the nearby Prince and his bride have a newborn baby with problems. Phillipa goes there to work as the baby’s nursemaid. She meets Wick the butler. Wick is the Prince’s half brother. He feels he can never marry a lady due to his servant-station in life.

    REVIEWER’S OPINION:
    I liked Phillipa’s actions and conversation when she arrived at the castle and did things for the baby. The story and how it resolved was good. It’s a short story - maybe a fourth of the length of a regular book. The narrator was excellent. There were two sex scenes which were ok, but don’t expect hot. The purpose was showing relationships, not to steam up the reader.

    This book can be read as a stand-alone, but it’s better if you read “A Kiss at Midnight” first. I enjoyed getting to know Wick in the first book which flowed into this book.

    Genre: regency romance.

    Story
    "Excellent narration, Poor Storyline"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone willing to suspend belief in the unreal way that the characters talk and behave in a historical fiction romance.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Eloisa James again?

    No.


    What about Nicola Barber’s performance did you like?

    She read all the characters voices very well. I would look for other books read by her.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The last 10 minutes of the book was cute.


    Any additional comments?

    Be ready to hear and hear again about colic and the color and texture of baby doo doo for the first 5 chapters. After that, the hero and heroine start to connect. I had issues with the heroine mascarading as a " caring" nanny but was unwilling to have her uncle who is a Doctor come and aid the ill baby because she did not want her family to know where she was. That and her constant need to drop her knickers anytime the butler was around.
