The book is wonderful on it's own, and Rosalyn Landor just makes it that much better. I love listening to her read. Eloisa James was the reason I bought this book but I searched for my next book by the narrator (Ms Landor). Simply because I love the way she reads. I was fortunate enough to find the next book not only read by Rosalyn but also written by Eloisa James. (A Kiss At Midnight) Jackpot!
Live, love, laugh...
This title was just ok for me. It's nice to see that three different authors are able to write three stories and interlock them seamlessly. That said since these are three romance stories covering the span of a weekend then the remanded are not well developed. They seemed forced to me. It went from hello to marry me in a heartbeat. The narrator did a very good job as always but the stories fell short for me.
Avid reader and Audio books listener
Funny lighthearted Romances
I loved that they were so many characters and smaller stories within the main stories
I just love her narrations. her ability to use male and female voices.
Julia Quinn is one of my favorite authors. I love her sense of humor! I like to be entertained when I read (listen to) a book, and I was entertained! I grinned through most of this book, and I'm sure I laughed out loud a time or two. The authors' style thoughout flows so well, I am looking forward to reading James' and Brockway's books. (I've read and re-read all Julia Quinn's books!)
This book was written by 3 of my favorite regency romance authors. It was guranteed fun read and it surely was entertaining. Unfortunetly, that was about it. The setting, characters, situation are all something we have read before and nothing really unique. I would recommend the other books the authors have written, before trying this book.

Overall good story and several fun character developments and surprises
The best thing about this book was the narrator (Rosalyn Landor). I can't say I really enjoyed it much, it was ok I guess on the other hand, I'm an avid Lisa Kleypas & Julie Garwood listener/reader which means, I always seem to compare their work with other modern day historical romance novelist. Putting it bluntly, no one have yet to measure up. Nice try though.
The premise is simple, and simply fun too. Three love stories by three great historical romance writers. It's a tiny bit complicated as each story bounces back in time to set up the story that is unfolding but it's followable. All three tales weave together to make a house party quite entertaining.
NARRATOR : Rosalyn Landor is so perfectly suited to regency Era romance that it's natural.
HEAT FACTOR: quite warm.
CREDITWORTHY? : Yes, in my opinion.
My favorite way to get my reading fix when I am on the move
I am an avid Eloisa James fan but this collaboration was a little confusing but better the second time I listened to it.
A book lover with a romantic soul, but willing to take a leap of faith. I LOVE to get sucked into a story and live there for a bit.
How can that many talented authors come together to make such a mess? I don't know but it happened here. This was a snooze fest and i only made it all the way through because I paid a full credit for it. This was a huge waste! pass!
