Publisher's Summary

An heiress to a fortune disguised as a gardener’s son. An heir to a dukedom who doubts his own legitimacy. Separated by status and their own well-guarded secrets, can they take their rightful places in Regency society and find the love they deserve?

Traumatized by a blaze that killed her parents, young Johanna remembers nothing of her privileged past and remains ignorant of the dangers that surround her. She grows up among the servants, where she develops a sense of purpose that helps her survive the betrayal that unmasks her true identity. Once she is forced to take her proper place in Regency society as the highly sought heiress to the Ambersley fortune, she must defy the relatives who would make her a pawn in their struggle for power.

When Derek Vaughan inherits the dukedom, his dubious parentage makes it a sacrilege to accept. But touched by the ravaged estate and its destitute staff, he braves a society that once shunned him while he rebuilds Ambersley and guards it from his stepmother's bankrupting clutches. He intends to grant the title to his half-brother when the boy comes of age, but Derek's plans go awry from the moment the gardener's apprentice - once his trusted young friend - is revealed to be not only an heiress of beauty and spirit, but the one woman who may finally capture his heart.

    "ENCHANTING REGENCY ROMANCE & LOTS OF REVELATIONS"

    Very interesting implausible story with plot twists and some charming and some evil characters. It's a little slow in parts as the groundwork of the story had to be put down (in years) but then it became interesting with deception, murder attempts, kidnapping, confusion, unrequited love, hatred, jealously, desire, misunderstandings, passion and friendship all make an appearance in this well written historical love story that gives you all the words necessary to enable you to visualise life in Regency England as the ugly duckling becomes a beautiful and desirable swan.

    It sounds like there will be other Lords of London books.

    Worth a credit? It would have been but if it's $10 or under then I just buy it and save my credits for a more expensive (but maybe no more deserving) listen, however, this is on sale at the moment and is a worthy listen for any historical romance lover.

    Story
    "Poor Narrator"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator has a pleasant voice but a terrible delivery. I couldn't finish listening to it. Ended up reading the book


    Would you recommend Ambersley to your friends? Why or why not?

    There are a lot of authors I would recommend before this one.


    What didn’t you like about Victoria Scott’s performance?

    Inflection was dull. Sounded like just anyone reading the book. I expect more dramatic presentation and distinctiveness between the characters' "voices."


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Probably Rosalyn Landor or even Carrington McDuff, Therese Plummer or Justine Eyre performances would have made it bearable.


    Any additional comments?

    Read the book, don't waste a credit or your money buying the audio edition.
