I really enjoyed this book; however, I felt that the book ended too abruptly. I didn't feel like there was a lot of closer. The Duke says will you m..Show More »arry me, she says yes and THE END.
I would have liked the ending better if the Duke would have arrived with a special license, made the stuffy, pretentious young Vicar marry them and then had him shipped off to India and his mother shipped off to a convent. If the ending wouldn't have been so abrupt I would have given the story 5 stars as I really loved the story.
I also thought that Greaves should have told her who paid for her education so that Sophia would learn that there was someone totally unexpected looking out for her well being. (Tried not to give any spoilers!)
I loved Sophia and the fact that regardless of what life threw at her she still had spunk. The Duke of Greaves learned to appreciate and respect Sophia's outlook on life. I thought this book was definitely the best in the series so far; however, the ending was rather abrupt.
Anne Flosnik isn't one of my favorite narrators as I feel like she's always got a mouth full of spit, but she always delivers a dependable performance. I will not turn away from books narrated by Ms. Flosnik; however, I also not intentionally search for them either.
I would definitely recommend this book because there are interesting characters and Sophia is just a delight. I will listen to this book over and over again.
Typical enjoyable SE listen - not your usual Rake/Virgin type romances - but this time it's about an Earl who is an ex government spy but who is now a..Show More » self employed spy and has found his prey - a lowly member of staff at the famous Tantalus Club but he gets more than he bargained for.
Unfortunately (but fortunately for them I guess) the pair hit it off immediately, seemed to go to bed together from almost the start and it was their first meeting - alright they each had their motives but this left a big gap for the listener to enjoy and savour the romantic and emotional build-up towards love and, hopefully, all the sexual chemistry which is involved. They have their sexual encounters but not too explicit, the plot seemed to overwhelm and drown the couple's relationship. However, thumbs up for the book cover!!!
Worth a credit? I have listened to them all and she is an author I like so I guess, for me, it would be a YES but for someone new to the series/author then I would have to say NO keep your credit because she's written far better books. This could be a stand alone listen.
