Publisher's Summary

Determined to prove her worth as a budding archeologist, Genisse Braxton vows to solve one of the world's greatest mysteries - to find the location of the lost city of Zerzura. Unfortunately, no man dares take the risk of escorting the resolute young scholar across the open desert. But on her way to Egypt, Genisse engages in a daring deception - she will switch places with Mildred Whimpelhall, who is traveling to meet her fiancé.

Cynical adventurer Jim Owen will do anything to escape the dark secrets of his troubled past. Betrayed by the woman he loved, scorned by proper society, he agrees to carry out a danger-fraught task: escort Mildred Whimpelhall across a lawless desert to her intended. But Jim is about to learn that "Mildred" isn't exactly what she seems... and the dangers they face together are eclipsed only by an even greater peril: falling in love, against all reason, with another guy's bride.

    "IT WOULD MAKE A GREAT FILM"

    What a surprise 'coz I hadn't heard of the writer - but it was an entertaining and funny lighthearted listen that sucks you in from the start - most enjoyable.

    Worth a credit? Absolutely YES

    "Enjoyable for the price"

    I enjoyed this, but didn't love it. The beginning was slow. The narrator was great except for her male American accent. Her voice shook every time "Jim" spoke.

    Devotee of multi-tasking, keen gardener and cross-stitcher. Now able to do both AND listen to stories at the same time. Bliss.

    "Delightfully funny, wonderfully narrated"

    This is a wonderfully written light romance that had me chuckling frequently. Connie Brockway's humour is very subtle, but it is shined brightly with Justine Eyre's excellent narration. This was my first time listening to Justine Eyre and I was just blown away by how beautifully she did her job. Not only was her reading clear and paced just right, she seemed to really enjoy performing the roles of the various characters. After just finishing another audio book where the narrator seemed to want to be anywhere but reading, this was a very welcome change. What a delight! I'd be more than happy to sit and listen to the entire book again immediately.

    Thoroughly recommended and I'll be seeking out more books by both the author and the narrator.

    "Great Book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It had strong main characters and interesting secondary characters. It was adventurous and a bit quirky. It had an authentic feel to it.


    What other book might you compare The Other Guy's Bride to and why?

    A bit like the Amelia Peabody (Elizabeth Peters) series with a bit of Stephanie Laurnes thrown in.


    Have you listened to any of Justine Eyre’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first time I have heard Justine and I think she suited the story well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I didn't want it to end.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first audiobook purchase and I was a bit unsure after reading the reviews, but was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed it all. This is a book I will keep as a favorite and listen to again.
    I will definitely read the next Connie Brockway book.

    "MAGICAL !"

    I loved this book. It has all the elects to make a successful audiobook. The story was magical! Set in Egypt gave the whole story an aura of magic that really caprures you. The story has the right balance between romance and suspense. The characters were really really captivating, the hero is one of the best Hero characters ever created in historical romance. Sexy yet funny, tough yet humble. Loved him!
    And finally the narration. Justine Eyre was MAGNIFICENT ! She was really really good ! She has a rich sensuous voice to begin with. But her performance keeps getting better and better . She brought the story to life as if you are watching a movie with your eyes closed :)
    Excellent book I highly recommend it :)

    "4+Stars: A fantastic listen! Highly recommended."


    This my first Connie Brockway, though it will def not be my last. This is a unique story that takes place in Egypt; it has danger, romance, scandal, hidden treasures, and fabulous chemistry between the H/h! The book was better than I expected.

    I hope for more books by this author (Audible, please give us more of Brockway's back catalogue!) I was also very impressed with the reading by Justine Eyre, who has become a favorite narrator of mine.

    I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.

    "Dimwitted"

    This is a book I might try reading myself. I normally like Justine Eyre's narration. But the main character sounded so silly and dimwitted I couldn't get beyond the first hour and a half. At first I thought it was the narration and I do think she tried a little too hard to sound breathy and naive. But I think it was the character herself. All of her actions seemed to support the opinions of the people she resented because they thought she was an airhead. She was an airhead and if she were my daughter or sister or ward I would not have trusted her to cross the street on her own, much less travel to India. Usually when a heroine is presented as such a lightweight, the author spends the book proving she is not. In this case, everything I read seemed to support that she was.

    The book has gotten such great reviews that I am inclined to think it was a combination of the character and the narration that set me off. Maybe if I read it to myself, I can find some sympathy for the twit.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "City Lost Romance Found"

    The book was charming. The settings delightful. I could see the wadi, feel that I was there. It was like a classic romance from the twenties. Well, with a little steamier sex. What it lacked in realism it made up in sheer entertainment. I enjoyed the appeal of the characters. I have already recommended this book to a friend. I did that before I had finished listening to it. I feel that I have found a new author to enjoy.
