Publisher's Summary

Ace Endicott, the Earl of Carde, needs a woman who will give him an heir, but he never expects to be engaged to three different women, or to become the laughingstock of the gossip columnists. Escaping this London nightmare, he takes a chance and comes up with a winning hand in the game of love.

Rita Award winner Barbara Metzger puts a tantalizing mix of humor and scandal into her Regency-era novels.

    "Ace of Hearts"

    This is definitely on of my favorite books by Barbara Metzger. I really wish the other two books in this trilogy were also available on audio-book.

    The narrator did a fantastic job.

    "Fun Read, but cliffhanger ending"

    such a fun read... BUT.. the female lead was a little too insecure for the role - she could have given herself a little more credit than what she had. also, the reason for the 2 leads to meet did not come to fruition until the last hour and then only the 2 minute epilog dealt with it. disappointing. I realize that this is a set up for the next book, but to have the crux of the tale left out to the very end was pointless. I spent the whole time wondering if there were any developments and it was very anticlimactic to have it summed up in 2 minutes. the development of the love interest was also REALLY slow in the making. over all a fun read as the writing is excellent. LOVED the aunt's character - she was so funny!
    will still read the follow ups as now I know there is a continuing story, but would have liked a little more out of this one.

    I just love all animals, but my personal favorite is my dog, Stella, and she amazes me daily with her intelligence and sense of fun.

    "Pleasantly surprised!"

    Excellent pairing of author and narrator made this a wonderful listening experience! Witty dialogue made me smile! Quirky humor made me laugh out loud! Narrator deftly handled shifting between characters, thereby giving realism to the story. Many thanks to Audible and to all those involved!
