When they first met Lord Jeremy William Radcliffe, Charlie and her twin sister, Elizabeth, were escaping from their uncle - taking turns acting the young gentleman to avoid detection. But Charlie couldn't help falling head over heels-and out of a window - for the handsome lord. Of course, that was only the beginning; Lord Radcliffe insisted on showing "him" and her lovely sister to London.
But how could he do that? With every touch, Radcliffe seemed unknowingly to incite indecent desires in Charlie, and his fraternal intent was certain to land her in a fine mess. Though it was a great game to play a boy, there was more fun in being female. And after one brush of his fiery lips when her guise was gone, Charlie swore to be nothing but his fiery woman forevermore.

I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
This was one of those audiobooks that I couldn't stop listening to. I found it very entertaining and there were some plot twists that I wasn't expecting. It was actually funny how Jeremy was questioning his sexuality because he was attracted to Charlie and the things that happened because of that. There was a good build up to the romance and although there was only one love scene I did feel the romantic connection between Jeremy and Charlie. This is a fun story that I recommend. The narrator also did a fine job with the accents and adding intensity to the story as well.

The print was better not the audio. I disliked narrator, her voice got on my nerves.
The most intriguing part was how Lord Jeremy started to have feeling for the female twin, Charlie dressed up as a guy. The scenes were funny. Least part was the gambling aspect.
Please kill me.
No, haven't even finished the audio version yet.
Buy the eBook version and save your money on the audio.
I love romantic historical novels.
Lynsay Sands is one of my fav auther, but i think i expected more from this book.
Maby because i read the Madison sisters series first, and that was so fun, that i thought that this book would be the same. Still it could be more fun. I love where he wants to make the young "boy" to a man.
But overall i great story
This book i is a true Lynsay Sands book.
It's a book worth it's money or cerdit.
This was a fun read. I really liked Charlie/Charles, she/he was quite funny and witty. She was a strong heroine not whiny and wimpy. She got herself into lots of antics and mishaps for sure. The hero was just okay, not much depth or intrigue with him. The dialogue was good. There was a decent sex scene. Even the sexual tension was mild. I do think the attraction between Radcliffe and Charlie could have been better. Although, through most of the book Charlie was playing Charles so it did make it difficult, although Radcliffe did find himself attracted to a boy. LOL
The narrator did a pretty good job and I would listen to her again.
Credit Worthy? Sure.
The narrator tried very hard to salvage this book. My issues were, no 1 the slang era language is over done. I believe it was a quick Google search rather than a study of the language. No 2, half the book leads up to one plot. Once the anticlimactic point is reached, a few more plot twist are just haphazardly tagged on to lengthen the story. No 3, back to era study, the, um, adult scenes escalated quickly for a girl out to not 'ruin' herself and by a man who pretends he feels bad about it. Pretty sure even this eras women require more than a 5 second kiss before heading into second base.
I can't comment on the end, I gave up at the second random new plot. It is written in the quick, spell it out for me way preteen books are yet contains x-rated material. I think it would do better to tone it down and then market towards a younger crowd.
I am usually a big Lyndsay Sands fan. Not with this book. The narrator can make or break a book. It's not that she doesn't have a lovely voice, it's more so that listening to her for long periods of time gave me a headache. I read the book first so I knew the story. Listening usually enhances the story for me when there is a good narrator. However, at some point I was just screaming in my head make it stop. It made the story that I read seem somehow stupid. It was a so so story to begin with but it mad me actually dislike the book. I like the premise and it was a cute story. I can read or listen to a Lynsay Sands story and always want to come back to it, This rendition makes me want to delete my copy from my Kindle and ask for my money back from Audible. I never want to hear about our be reminded of this story ever again,
"lots of fun and humor, with highly likable heroine"
lots of fun and humor with a empathic heroine, one of the best Lynsay sands I've listened to. it is also well performed
An entertaining listen
I am a big fan of Lynsay Sands books. You do have to suspend belief that they are in any way historically correct but are entertaining nonetheless. This was good escapism and an enjoyable listen.
Fiona is a great narrator but this reading was marred by her strange pronunciation of Tomas and it grated every time she said it (which was frequent towards the end of the book)
I would have listened in one go if I had the time as I really wanted to know what happened next as the story progressed
