Lady Amanda Locke has struck out miserably in her two Seasons on the marriage mart. Beautiful, titled, and charming - even if she does talk a bit too much - Amanda doesn’t understand why love eludes her. Even her father, the Duke of Norford, is so perplexed he is prepared to take drastic measures to ensure his daughter’s happiness. Now, as Amanda begins her third Season, she gets a little help from Cupid, a darkly handsome horse breeder whose knowledge of basic animal attraction has guided him in arranging more than a few successful matches between the young ladies and gentlemen of the ton.
Hired by Amanda’s family, Devin Baldwin produces results for Amanda and soon she is happy to be courted by one of his clients, the dashing Viscount Altone. In order to secure Amanda’s match to a nobleman obsessed with horse racing, Devin must teach Amanda how to overcome her fear of horses. But as Devin shows her the joys of riding, hunting, and racing, will their own hearts run astray as Amanda finds herself falling in love with Cupid himself?

This is not fast paced book at all which makes it good to listen to while cleaning, gardening, or any hobby you enjoy. It was an nice story that did keep my interest - it was just more slower paced than I'm used to. I still would recommend this book because the price is very reasonable. So for the price....I'd say give it a try.
This book never really got off the ground for me. Normally Johanna Lindsay's books grab you and pull you into the story completely, but this book had way too many soon-forgotten characters and dull dialogue. I listened to it the whole way and there were a few chapters that were better than the rest. I'd recommend you skip this one and go onto one of her other novels.
I truly enjoyed this book and was reluctant to put it down, or hit the pause button. I have listened to a number of other books by Johanna Lindsey and although I found this one a little different with a somewhat slower pace I would definitely recommend it, especially if you are a Johanna Linsey fan.
I love to read and listen! I like all types of books, but lately I have been reading teen dystopian fiction. Favorite authors are Stephen King, Lauren Oliver, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Hawthorne, and Poe. I am an English teacher and I am always looking for the next great read...
Well, I liked her accent but it was hard to understand her and it took a while to get used to her style.
Tender hearted prude meets hot blooded horseman.
A bit slow to get going.
This series of 4 books [so far] is lovely, but I must admit that I like the 2 center books in the series better than the first book or this last book.
