The wealthy Duke of Weybridge knows that everyone loves a good surprise...and a good scandal. He has bounteous amounts of both for the guests at his extravagant birthday ball - particularly for his nieces and nephew, Emily, Isabel, and Lucien. They think his promise to improve their lives means a generous stipend. But he’s got a different gift in mind: finding them perfect matches. His task won’t be easy, because the Arden siblings have given up on love.
Lucien is committed to his freewheeling bachelor lifestyle. Emily was brokenhearted when her engagement ended in disgrace. And Isabel’s dreams for a happy marriage were dashed with a terrible betrayal on her wedding night. As the duke’s celebration approaches, his romantic schemes ignite passions and spark more than a few juicy rumors that will have the ton buzzing for years.

Devotee of multi-tasking, keen gardener and cross-stitcher. Now able to do both AND listen to stories at the same time. Bliss.
This is another book I got simply because it was narrated by the glorious Rosalyn Landor. Due to the rather complex story line following three siblings and their respective love interests, this story really needed someone who could make their voices distinct and Ms Landor did so wonderfully. Having said that, I still found the book a little muddled and it took at least four chapters before I had a firm grasp on what was going on. I won't rush out and buy another Leigh Michaels book...unless, of course, Rosalyn Landor narrates it!
HOPEFUL ROMANTIC. I Enjoy Historical & Inspirational Romances With Great Narration. Oh, And I give Honest Reviews with No Spoilers. ;-)
This was another one of my "on sale" books so I got more than my money's worth on this one. It took me a bit of time to get into this book I think because of the three story lines but once I did I enjoyed it a lot. Some parts were predictable and a few unpredictable which made it more enjoyable. Narration was great!! This is another great book for a rainy day or to take on vacation. ;-)
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
3 likeable siblings, 1 castle, 2 interfering relations and a Grand Ball are all weaved together to produce this fun Regency tale that shows in the end love can conquer all if it's just given a chance. Easy-going light listen with mild sex scenes.
Plus all the characters are portrayed by the brilliant and gifted voice of Ms Landor who brings charm, elegance and wit to each easily identifiable part that's played.
Worth a credit? As it's only $9.79 I have to say no just buy it and save your credit for a more costly book.
I love romantic historical novels.
This book i think would be better printed. The audio version got me confused. I love Rosalyn Landor, but the way the book is written, makes it difficult to follow sometimes. It jumps from couple to couple, in the middle of somthing there will happen.
There are many books to compare this one whit, because all the lovestoryes in this book are classic. You know what will happen, but you can't stop reading.
Most of my audiobooks is Narrated by Rosalyn Landor. I love the way she makes all the character alive a different.
It would be the same.
The to sisters lovestory is sweet and not that hard to guess what will happen, but the brothers lovestory is a bit tame.
It's entertaining, and it will still give you this warm filling in your stomach in the end :)
yes I would listen to it again because it was easy to listen to and light hearted
if i had to choose a favourite character it would be Gavin although they were all pretty much on a par. I guess Gavin because he was able to laugh at himself and those around him and their beliefs of proprioty. i also enjoyed emily.
I love listening to Rosalyn Landor narrating and thats why I chose this book. She has great accents and distinguishable male and female voices.
My only con to this book is that the characters all fell in love rather quickly. I felt if the book had have been longer I would have enjoyed the story line more. But a good light hearted book
Maybe, I really enjoyed the story of the married couple. I didn't understand the brother and the brat falling in love. The other story was decent.
Yes, because I enjoyed 1/3 of the book
I love her and he voice and style
Rosalyn Landor is one of my favorite narrators. Her voice is just right for the lighter roamnces. Her male voices are masculine in tone without sounding comically deep and fake "male".
It was a nice listen for my long week-end road trip.
I truly enjoyed the clever story by Leigh Michaels. This was my first book by her and I was pleasantly surprised to read the three delightfully described love stories. Each different from the other with one thing in common. They all fall in love when they least expect it and brought together by design from their great uncle and father. A father who wishes the best for his children but is extremely poor at communicating with them.
One of my favorite parts is perhaps the Duke’s letters to each of the three siblings when he invited them to his house birthday party. He told each the siblings the same line. “You are my favorite great” niece or nephew. As a mother I can say my children are each my favorite for a different reason. It’s just cute to see it in this book as well., although the line is not delivered with the same intension as mine.
I highly recommend this light and uplifting book, however don’t use a credit for it since purchasing it will allow your credit to be better used for a more expensive book.
Yes I would gives misery love sadness laughter and dreamy togetherness
How everything came to the conclusion of the end
Mystery, love, suspense
The end how her uncle and father were sneaky on how they made the outcome at the end
Beautiful storyline I would love for simulir stories to be written
this was a very interesting and entertaining book with multiple story lines that I enjoyed.
