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!
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.
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
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!)
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.
this was a quick listen and I bought it because of the narator mostly. I enjoyed it, however this would have been a good anthology, I did not like that 3 authors are writing the same story even if there are different couples involved.
in the middle
I liked the first 2 stories but the 3rd one I didn't really like the characters
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!

It is a story about a matchmaker and a house full of lady's and gents needing to be matched up. Some humorous parts, but mostly the chase and submission of falling in love/lust . Each couple gets their own love scene with plenty of hot touching. My favorite parts of the book however were those with witty banter at the dinner table, and getting to hear inside 3 very different women's heads as they fall for the respected gentlemen we all know from the start HAS to be hers if the world were perfect and fair. Fun read.
