He Couldn’t Refuse
John Parker-Roth cannot believe that marriage is necessary for his happiness. He would far rather pursue his interest in horticulture, but if one day he should find a female who shared his passion for flowers - a level-headed, calm sort of female - he might reconsider. Certainly the lovely young woman who has just tumbled into his lap will not do, as she possesses neither of those admirable qualities. Yet Miss Margaret Peterson does have many things in her favor.
To begin with, she is a true English rose, blushing a delectable pink. And she is not entirely clothed. Her full mouth begs to be kissed. If only she would not wriggle so…oh, dear. He cannot ignore the sudden vision of her in his bed, but he must. What? Is Meg actually asking him to kiss her? Well, well, well. John Parker-Roth is a gentleman, first and foremost. And he cannot turn down a lady’s request…

This is a novel that does not take itself too seriously. How refreshing! Thought the storyline and the characters were great fun and the inherent eccentricity and tongue-in-cheek qualities of the plot and its people were perfectly captured and very well represented by the reader. To me, it's the mark of a good narrator to be able to create so many different voices in the same novel and make each one real, unique and believable with the character's foibles and faults clear to the listener. This audiobook does that! Hats off to the author for a fun story and for choosing this narrator.
Looking forward to hearing Sally Mackenzie's other books in this series.
Yes. I've bought several audiobooks just because she was the narrator. She does a great job of making very different characters in a range of books both believable and unique.
Laughed. A lot.
Well worth listening to.
Yes, she is a wonderful author & makes me giggle.
The Narrator gave the character of Emma an annoying lisp. This character did not have this lisp in the "Naked Marquis" which is the story of Emma & Charles. I don't know why this narrator felt the need to do this, for me it distracted me from the story every time Emma had a line.
Just read it
I don't know the Hellions of Halstead hall series, or the Sherbrook bride books.
The performer sound like she was biting her tongue and lisping with Emma and it makes it hard to listen to the book.
I hate to say it but I got the book on kindle and audible and just had to read the book. The book is a great read in one sitting if you can.
I have loved the series had gotten some in paper back years ago, but loved seeing them in audio format.
