Spoiled and ungoverned, Fitz was not suitable companion for a lady of fashion...
And certainly no proper chaperon. Fitz begged to disagree--after all, a dog was a true incomparable as far as friendship, loyalty, and protection - and soon lovely Miss Sonia was plucked by her rusticated roots and packed off, dog and all, to London. Perhaps there she would find a husband to tame her free-spirited ways - and keep her out of trouble.
Sonia, however, always had a soft spot for the underdog, and Darius Conover was such a fellow. Scorned by society for a scandalous deed, Conover was not redeemed even by his heroics in battle. Until he met Sonia and Fitz, two passionate souls undaunted by even the most odious circumstances - and decidedly determined to undo the shackles binding his heart.

Yes, it's a nice kind of relaxing book that's very good for a car trip or pool-side.
That it was pleasant without being stupid. It's hard to find a book that's light and funny, but also well written.
I liked her voices very much, I just wish the audio quality had been better. It varied, but was generally of sub-par quality. It also skipped a little here and there.
Lovely, funny little book. It's also quite clean, so I'd feel comfortable giving it to a precocious child or more conservative older person. I hope Audible picks up more from the author and voice actress. I just wish the audio quality was better.
love audio books - Anglophile
I read the book years ago and was very happy to see this book on audible. The audio just enhances the book. I have the book, audio, and Kindle versions - if I really like a story, I buy it in all the forms in which it is available.
Fitz the dog!!! I loved the comments from Fitz. For example, when Darius is looking for a kidnapped character, he comments to Fitz, "They have a good lead on us. Do you think you can find [the] coach in this mess, huh, Fitz?" And Fitz thinks to himself, "Of course I can. I peed on it [the wheel], didn't I?"
They were all good. I liked the way she used a lower class accent for Fitz.
Yes. I also listened to it with my sister whenever we were in the car.
I love Barbara Metzger's earlier books, like this one. I'd like to see her earlier books in audio form.
I am very fond of books where a dogs take part in the narration. They make me look at my dog differently. I am sure my behavior exasperates him at times.
