Arabella Caulfield, one of three orphaned sisters, has clung to an ancient gypsy prophecy as the only way to save her family from endless heartbreak. Now she has 12 days to reach a remote French castle and fulfill her destiny: to marry a prince. Along the way, Arabella meets Lucien Westfall, decorated naval captain and the new Duke of Lycombe. She thought he was a pirate. He thought she was a governess. Two wrongs have never made such a scandalously perfect right.

I enjoyed this story, the characters were mostly likeable and the story had a little bit of everything I like. The narration was good and clear however I found her voice very soft and hard to hear at times.

The McCready Family Funeral Home and Bait Shop has crickets running rampant in the store and hot sauce in the Snack Shack's ketchup bottles. But as the county coroner, Frankie has enough on her plate without worrying about the increasingly mean pranks being played at her family's business. And the arrival of Sheriff Eric Linden, both devastatingly attractive and painfully taciturn, is enough to push her over the edge.

This story was going so well then went downhill. I started losing interest after the second proposal. I kept thinking 'what ?? He proposed she said no how many times???? Her secret was annoying me and she was annoying me. The only reason I finished this was because it was so well narrated.

I could not stop listening to this story! It is so well written and the narrater tells the story so well in her husky voice you feel like you are transported to the Middle Ages and are right there living it. Absolutely brilliant I can't recommend it enough.
