It was a sweet story. It was a little distracting that all the guys voices sounded the same.

Kitty Bennet is finished with love and romance. She lost her one-time fiancé in the Battle of Waterloo, and in the battle's aftermath saw more ugliness and suffering than she could bear. Staying with her Aunt and Uncle Gardiner in London for the winter, Kitty throws her energies into finding a husband for her hopelessly bookish sister Mary, and discovering whatever mysterious trouble is worrying her sister Jane.

I highly recommend the first one in this series as well. I have always been able to find something I don't like about the narrator of books I listen to, but I can't find a thing.

I enjoyed the characters in this story even though a couple of them were slightly unbelievable. The narrator mispronounced a few words, which would not have been so bad, but they were food words and this was a story all about food. She had a melancholy way of talking which worked for the sad parts of the story, but didn't do much for the happy parts. Also, she distinctly pronounced any word with a "t" in it, which was distracting. I normally enjoy clear, crisp speech but it didn't seem to work here. I did enjoy her British accent. I'm no expert on the nuances of Brit-speak, but it sounded good to me. Perhaps she has a British background and thus the mispronunciaton of the word "herbs". I would love the recipe for the coconut cake, if it exists.

Like all the Bedwyn men, Aidan has a reputation for cool arrogance. But this proud nobleman also possesses a loyal, passionate heart - and it is this fierce loyalty that has brought Colonel Lord Aidan to Ringwood Manor to honor a dying soldier's request. Having promised to comfort and protect the man's sister, Aidan never expected to find a headstrong, fiercely independent woman who wants no part of his protection, nor did he expect the feelings this beguiling creature would ignite in his guarded heart.

I would like to see a story featuring Wolfe. I haven't looked hard - maybe there is.
