With more than 10 million copies of her books in print, New York Times best-selling author Jane Feather is one of the biggest names in historical romance. The third novel in the Blackwater Brides trilogy finds comely Alexandra Douglas in London, reeling from news of her father’s death - and of her disinheritance. Posing as a librarian, Alex infiltrates her former home, where love awaits in the form of her stepbrother’s friend, the Honorable Peregrine Sullivan.

I love Jane Feather's books, I think she writes a great romance filled with intrigue and deep human emotions. I looked forward to this third book after reading the first two and it was as good as the first two but I'm sorry Jill Tanner is not my favorite narrator. I don't want to be mean as she has excellent skills as a narrator but as a romance narrator she comes off as sterile and cold, very unromantic. I can think of many other genres she could read for an be incredible but in this one area I just can't connect with the story when she reads. This is the 4th book I have had to abandon because her sterile reading just causes me to lose interest. I end up buying the book and picking it up where I left off because I just can't finish listening. It might just be me, but I would recommend future listeners to take advantage of the preview button before purchasing to see if you can stand 6 hours of the droning Jill Tanner delivers. Sorry Jill.
yes, it has an interesting plot and believable characters.

I will read the rest of the series.
