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
I usually love Brenda Joyce's books but this one just didn't do it for me I'm afraid. I just couldn't relate or sympathise with the female lead. She was soooo stupid it was annoying and frustrating.
Usually her books are filled with a good dose of passion and romance but this one dealt more on the French/English politics of that era. It was almost like someone else wrote it and I just couldn't get into it, Infact I wished I hadn't wasted my time listening to it - even though I put it on double speed so I could get to the end.
Was it worth the credit? - No.
