New York Times best-selling author Tracy Anne Warren is among the world’s most popular Regency romance novelists. She sweeps listeners to the Irish countryside for this saucy tale of deception. When Lady Jeannette Brantford is banished from her family’s estate in England, she encounters the dashing Darragh O’Brien. Too bad the common architect is well below her station.

So glad I did not judge this book by the reviews. I enjoyed the second book as much as the first one. Now on to the third installment.
In search of the next great Cindarella story
absolutely, it was well written well narrated and a good story. Just the right amount of tension and romance....
Tracy Anne Warren is now one of my favorite romance writers. I only read historical romances however not for history and she does not bog the reader down with too much of it, she is an excellent writer, her passages and character interactions are perfect. The characters do not repeat their thoughts again and again. She makes her description leaves you with the impression and moves on. In effort to make a strong female character she does not do like a lot of writers and in turn make the male seem weak, and to top it off she writes a good believable story. For all the hype some other romance writers get that writing and story lines are not half as good she is a unsung hero.
Lady Jeannette is really annoying but in the end you grow to like her..maybe...a little bit...but i love Darragh...but its a good idea to listen to this one before listening to book 3
I loved the way Jeanette and Darragh sparred with each other in their game of wills.
When Jeanette drew a less than flattering picture of Darragh.
The way she could differentiate each of the voices. I love her English accent.
Does she or doesn't she? Only her husband knows for sure.
This is a great adaptation of the classic Shakespeare play Taming of the Shrew. It has humor, sensitivity, and romance…all the best ingredients for a romance. The narrator does a good job with the Irish lilt, her voice is soothing and easy to listen to. I’ve listened to the whole series and will again and again.
Can't hear you....I'm reading!!
I didn't want to read this book because Jeanette was a spoiled rotten little girl. She does not deserve someone so good. But I had to because it's part of a series and I am OCD in doing things in order. I don't agree with some of the reviewers saying Darragh abused her by making her work, she deserved to learn how to be grateful. I am hoping the third book is better.
Money isn't everything
Darragh and Jeannette's caught in their compromising situation' when Darragh discovered that Jeannette was not a virgin. How Darragh send Jeannette's maid to visit her family and surprised Jeannette at the castle. I also loved it when Jeannette fell in the mud!
Earl Darragh, what an Earl! I loved him. I think I loved him more than Adrian and Kit.
A man with so much but yet so humble and caring.
I have read the other 2 books and although I loved O'Brien a lot in this book, I think my choice order is: Husband Trap, Marriage Trap, Wife Trap. I did laugh quite a bit when O'Brien teaches Jeannette his varous lessons and it did have an impact on her because she was not as annoying in Marriage Trap, she was a little more human. I commented to myself that Bianca's character narration was starting to run-together because she made Toddy sound like Darragh. I wished the ending of this book could have been a little steamier. I wanted Jeannette to get pregnant in this book but because I read Marriage Trap already I knew she had children. I loved the whole story of O'Brien deceiving her about his status, she deserved a little come-down. Overall, I enjoyed the book, great work ladies!!
Now that I have read all 3 books, my favorite characters order are: Violet, Darragh, Adrian, Kit, Liza and Jeannette. I love the author and narrator's work. I look forward to reading more of their works.
yes, and I did!
this was one
yes, and I did the sequels
probably not, but it was fun listening to the book
I have 3 kids that occupy all the TV's in the house...enough said...addicted to audiobook ....shhhh don't tell my husband ;-)
I do not feel bad for Jeannette what so ever. She is so God awfully spoiled that its hard to like or feel for the character. Earl Darragh O'Brien is way too good for her and I honestly would have been urghing him to find someone else to be his wife. So Jeannette is shipped off to Ireland after her deception was revealed in Husband Trap out of shame from her family. Jeannette is staying with much older cousins in the Irish countryside, which is completely borning for her royal highness who is used to being the belle of the ball in London society. Jeannette is constantly looking her nose down on people and throwing her title around like Ireland should be so lucky to have her presence of being a true English born lady. Jeannette is attracted to an architect who is rebuilding a wing of her cousin's house. They have few run in with stolen kisses and what not but he could never be a suitable husband for Jeannette because of his lack of title. One night while Jeannette is hosting a ball at her cousins house she goes too far with O'Brien and were caught red handed by all of her male relatives, That was a funny scene. Jeannette being publicly compromised she has no choice but to wed Darragh O'Brien, oh boy does she throw a fit being force to marry an untitled man, but the jokes on her cause he turns out to be an Earl of Mullholand which makes Jeannette a Countess (not like she deserves it). O'Brien teaches Jeannette a lesson by letting her believe that she is married to a poor man and they live in a small cottage where Jeannette is forced to cook, clean and sew for several months.
The book have a good story line I just can't feel for Jeannette, I just want to constantly smack her. I did like Husband Trap and Wedding Trap better because they had more of a likeable main character. But you must tread through this book to get through the next. Like I said it is not a bad book or story line, you are just going to hate the main character.
I can't compare I have never seen the printed copy
I laughed about the cottage and the cooking
I liked the fact dare did not tell Janet who he was it served her right
