Publisher's Summary

Jo Beverley, one of romance fiction's most heralded authors, pens a steamy tale that picks up shortly after the events in Winter Fire.

In A Most Unsuitable Man, Damaris Myddleton has plenty of money - but she is looking for a husband with a title who will lead her into the welcoming arms of the aristocracy. Despite her quest for respectability, she keeps noticing her attraction to Mr. Octavius Fitzroger, a penniless man with no prospects who agrees to help Damaris find just the right spouse.

    "A Lady Needs a Hero"

    Wonderful story, good even development of the strength in the heroine. The reading was well done although I did not like the high pitched voice the author gave Rothgar. I realize that romance novels often have dangerous subplots but this one seemed a little overdone with family members trying to kill off both the heroine and hero. Loved the song - hence the name of the review
    I did not skip parts though, as I have done in other novels.

    "More, please"

    Beverley's eighteenth-century novels are even better than those set in the Regency period. I wish more of them were available through Audible

    Story
    "really didn't like the heroine"
    Would you try another book from Jo Beverley and/or Jenny Sterlin?

    I am not sure if I would try another book by the author, but the narrator was good.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending was okay, but I didn't care about it, as the heroine turned me off. She was selfish, didn't think about a thing she said or who it could hurt and she came across as very needy. I kept checking the time remaining on the audio and was really surprised that I had 30 minutes left and still did not warm up to Damaris. This is a first for me to dislike a smart decisive heroine, but she was lacking in warmth and charm.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was good. I think that this narrator is okay, but not in my top 5. I would never choose a book just because she was the narrator, unlike I do with some of my favourites.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    The character of the heroine needed a lot of development. She was aware that she let her mouth run away with her, but did nothing to try and change it. She did not act in a way that saved the people around her, from getting. hurt.
    Toward the end, she makes a disparaging comment about the hero's sister Libby and how awful she looks. This is just after the sister told the hero that their older brother was coming to kill him. This may have been the cause of the sister's stress. The heroine is also very pushy and coupled with her wealth, makes her seem obnoxious.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a nice idea for a romance. Especially with the role reversal of the woman having influence, power and money. If the heroine was likeable, the listener would be cheering for her. This was a shame as it started out in a way that led me to believe there would be a moment of epiphany that would make me like the heroine, but it never came.

    "Very enjoyable."

    Well worth a listen. One of my favorite authors; excellent narration. Exciting and romantic story. It helps if you have read/listened to previous books in the series.
