RITA Award-winning, New York Times best-selling author Mary Jo Putney is justly celebrated as a master of the Regency romance. Here Alexander Randall is the last heir to the Earl of Daventry and he must find himself a bride. His prayers are answered in the form of distressed midwife Julia Bancroft. But though their union would benefit both parties, Julia is reluctant to surrender her heart.

“… rich in complex, realistically complicated characters, expertly spiced with intrigue, and infused with a wickedly subtle wit.” (Booklist)
The story kept me interested every minute. I hated to put it down.
Can't say without giving away points that may spoil it for another reader. But there was more than one memorable moment.
Yes. He is one of only 3 male narrator's that I like. He is very good.
Well worth the credit
A truly beautiful story that is well written and narrated. The hero in this story is truly a hero as he rescues Julia from her dangerous captors. I really love how well this story flowed and you could see how these two came to love each other. I highly recommend.
The prolonged periods of self-doubt ("will he/she really still want me when...) on the part of both the H and h got a bit tiresome, but overall a nice story. Not anywhere near as gripping as say, No Longer a Gentleman, but still nice enough.
The heroine drove me crazy; I couldn’t wait for this to be over. She thought of everyone but her self to the point that it became ridiculous.
Simon Prebble himself, who reminds me vocally of the actor Jonathan Pryce- one of my favorites partly due to his beautiful voice. I'm currently listening to this book for the third time!!
This is my favorite among MJP's "Lost Lords" series. I'm hoping that some of her "Fallen Angel" series are added to Audible's catalog, which are among my favorites. This book is equal to them.
The scene in the inn while on their way to London. That is certainly an interesting way of consumating a marriage!
What's a tag line?
I'm thoroughly enjoying this book. Prebble does it very well. I'm on my third go round listening to it and I'm getting rather strange looks from my co workers who don't realize I'm not listening to music on my mp3 player. They can't figure out why I'm grinning depending on what scene I'm listening to.
If Never Less than a Lady is typical storyline and writing style of this author, then no I would not try another of her books.
I may listen to A discovery of Witches again, I've been spoiled by Deborah Harkness.
No. I found this narrator disappointing. His voice droned through much of the story and barely stopped between one sentence to the next. Thus far the worst narration I have experienced.
No. Subtracting anyone from the story could leave it even drier. None of the characters caused an emotional response for me to either want them out of the story or enjoy how they were portrayed.
I enjoy a book that has layers. This book did not get my attention let alone keep,it. The narration style only added to my disappointment.
This book had a strong, but delicate female lead. It is a Historical Romance and has many elements of that. It caters to many readers. It was passionate and romantic. I enjoyed it.
