    "The Rejected Suitor wins my hand!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed The Rejected Suitor! The story was light and enjoyable with fun & interesting plot twists. I've only recently discovered these regency books and find them delightfully distracting. I appreciated the light hand taken in the romance details. While some books are guilty pleasures that you would not want to be overheard, I could listen to 'Suitor' and not cringe if my children caught some of the narration. And speaking to the narration, Ms Hewitt's performance was spot on. I literally felt like I was meeting different and distinct characters, even forgetting it was only one person voicing them at times! From the dottering old aunt to the overbearing brother to the minor characters, the care the author gave to their creation was realized in the narrator's skillful performance.

    This book was exactly as promised. I wanted a fluffy fiction, not a historical documentary and that is what I got. Ms McCarthy wove a fun fantasy tapestry and Ms Hewitt spun the tale into vibrant life with her lyrical and lovely voice. Thank you ladies!

    "Traditional Regency Romance"
    Any additional comments?

    I want to preface my comments with the fact that I am a true fan of historical romance. I probably read and/or listen to about 100 such books per year. What attracted me to The Rejected Suitor is that it is set in the Regency period (think the Jane Austen era).

    The story revolves around Jared, the Earl of Stonebridge, and Emily Clearbrook who is a Duke's daughter. Three years earlier Jared promised to marry her, but he left her without a word. Emily's brothers are committed to see her married soon, but she is too independent having served as a spy during the war.

    I found the premise unrealistic and the characters unbelievable. I didn't understand why Emily's father blackmailed Jared into marrying someone else three years earlier, or how his new pending engagement was relevant to the story. Also why were Emily's brothers so intent on getting her married off quickly to anyone rather than someone she loved? Furthermore, why was Emily's now widowed mother willing to see her daughter married to the man the mother still loved?

    Teresa McCarthy's narration was OK. I enjoyed most of her voices for the characters, but her voice for Jared was too soft and feminine-like. He should have been manly, more like the brothers.
