    "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.

    I LOVED the mother-in-law, she was hyserical.

    "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.

    "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.
