Let the hunt begin....
Lisa Madison wants a husband, and she has just the candidate in mind: Robert Langley. Trouble is, the infuriating man insists on seeing her as the impish girl she once was - even as every other gentleman in London has taken notice of her womanly... charms. When her beauty lands her in danger, it's Robert who comes to the rescue, only to announce his affections are not of the romantic kind!
Robert saw enough sorrow in his parents' union to know he wants nothing to do with marriage, which is exactly what he'll be trapped into if he acts on his desire for the irksome siren. And then Lisa does what Robert least expects: gives up on him! As feigned indifference gives way, blistering passion burns at last. But just before the pair can succumb to hard-won bliss, an enemy with unfinished business lurks, threatening to destroy them both.

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Lady stupid will have you continually rolling your eyes to the heavens saying...."..oh no, surely she isn't, she can't, she wouldn't, she's not that stupid, but alas she is and she does!! She runs off here and there, always ignoring sensible advice and gets herself in trouble which was the main storyline of a weak book. I could not empathize with her in any way because she was just so frustrating.
Coupled with that, I thought the narrator was sooo sloooow, I put the speed on my iPhone to x1 speed (which doubles the speed) and that sounded about right. I don't think the Publishing Houses give enough thought to the narrators of their books but it is SO important, they can make even a great book unbearable!
I love L. S.'s vampire books and I love romance books - Paranormal, Historical or Modern Day (hundreds by now) but I would say "don't waste your credit" but if you've listened to the others in the series and your a fan then you will probably ignore me!
Yes, I truly enjoyed the first story in this series. But this girl is so stupid. Can anyone be this naive?
Given the female lead a little more intelligence. She got on my last nerve.
Yes, they are about the same.
It was a struggle to finish it. It seemed to go on and on.
In the Regency London Historical Romance category this is a good book. I didn't feel the humor as much as in Countess... but its a very good extension of it... I really did enjoy it just didn't find it AS good as countess. I'd say this one is great if I hadn't just listened to countess and immediately after listened to this one.
I'd say it would fit with Stephanie Laurens and maybe even in with some Amanda Quick minus the Arcane Society.
I haven't, but I definitely would again! There wasn't the usual adjustment time where you get used to the voice, cadence and characters. It started comfortably and stayed that way. The characters were well portrayed and I will never hesitate when I see her name as the narrator. I was disappointed to see that the three books in the series all had different narrators but her voice and characters were not a bad fit at all. The characters were different then their duplicates in Countess but they were close enough to feel familiar.
Opions of love and the suspenseful path to it.
READ COUNTESS FIRST! If not than don't bother... because the husband hunt is a total spoiler! Husband Hunt is the continuation and Countess is desribed in detail. Countess was incredible and it would be a shame to ruin it and more of a shame to skip it. I haven't yet read the third...but altho the timeline of it was before this one I don't actually know if it serially before it.
I was definitely not pleased to hear a new narrator again but I can only assume it was on purpose? I don't know! Jaime Birch was good but at first it was hard to get over the new voices again! It really does change the way you see the characters. Lisa was not as sassy as she was portrayed in the earlier two books so that was kind of disappointing.
Otherwise, great ending to a cute series! I had lots of laughs!
I am a stay at home mom of 6 homeschooling my youngest son. I am active with animal rescue and have several in my home.
Wonderful book to pass the time on a rainy day! The characters are well fleshed out and the story line is interesting and fun to listen to. The narrator keeps the pace going and the tone accurate to the scene. I'd listen to it again and again!
It wasn't up to her usual descriptions and depth
Wasn't as good as her other stories. Very predictable.
