This is the perfect example of how vital a good narrator is to an audiobook. This was an amazing experience!! Bianca Amato took me on an emotional jou..Show More »rney through the life of Violet. I truly felt the nerves and paranoia of Violet on her wedding date. Her constant worry of being discovered. The all consuming love and passion she felt for Adrian. The devastation and heartbreak when he found out about the lies. I was Violet every minute of this story, that's how good this narrator is. So good in fact that I will skip the next book because I don't think there's salvation for the evil selfish wench of Jeanette and I don't really care if she gets a happily ever after. I will immediate start listening to the story about Kit and Eliza (The Husband Trap) that sounds very promising.
Yes the story is implausible. Twins that switch identities because the one that is getting married doesn't want to and the other one happens to be secretly in love with the groom from the moment she laid eyes on him. But the narration is so good that it takes you through a vivid emotional journey and turns a good story into an unforgettable experience. Absolutely worth a credit!!
Warning: You will not be able to put this book down. I found myself listening to it much too late into the night. I know some of the other reviewers..Show More » were disappointed by this book, but I can honestly say I wasn't. If you started with book 1, you're going to be surprised to see that Lady Jeannette does, in fact, have a heart. I thought the author did a good job of explaining her behavior in the previous novel. But, the person you're really rooting for in this book is Darragh O’Brien. He has just the right mix of bad boy attitude and good guy behavior. I also like that this book doesn't end with the oft-employed "they got married and lived happily ever after" ending. Instead, she chose to show some of the problems they had after the marriage.
Like any good historical romance novel, Tracy Ann Warren's writing style brought you back in time without beating you over the head with mundane, useless descriptions of attire and buildings. Instead, she gives you just enough to be able to envision the world she describes. And Bianca Amato continues to do an excellent job as narrator.
This was a suprisingly good book, witty, funny, and oh, very sensual. I really enjoyed it. The narrator was excellent. Her nasal rendition of the bad ..Show More »guy, cousin Phil, was awesome. Eliza is basically shopping for a husband after she inherits her aunt's fortune. Her friend Violet enlists her brother-in-law Kit to help coach Eliza in her first season as an eligible heiress within the ton. The fact that Eliza is secretly in love with Kit and that Kit can't see love if it hits him over the head makes for a funny and frustrating situation for everyone involved. I wanted to wring Kit's neck sometimes. Very enjoyable story, light and fun. I am now looking for the other books in the series. If only audible would add them to its list.
