Derek Chambers, Marquess of Whitlock, has a problem: his wife. She is the single most horrifying aspect of his life, and the only thing he has ever enjoyed about her are their truly spectacular fights. As such, he prefers having as little to do with her as possible. So when she unexpectedly summons him to London, he surprises himself by going, and finds his life turned upside down in ways he never thought possible.

This book was lovely and sweet. Best book in the series so far. The narrator brought it alive. I struggled to get through the first book and was hesitant to try this one. I am so glad that I did. Beautiful book, beautiful narration.

Lady Miranda Hawthorne acts every inch the lady, but inside she longs to be bold and carefree. Entering her fourth Season and approaching spinsterhood in the eyes of society, she pours her innermost feelings out not in a diary but in letters to her brother's old school friend, a duke - with no intention of ever sending these private thoughts to a man she's heard stories about but never met.

This is a keeper. If you love drama, sweer, clean romance, humour and cliffhangers then this is definitely a book to consider. Both the author and the narrator were excellent!

What a beautiful end to a lovely series. I was hoping that Ms. Hunter wouldn't use the same narrator she used for Georgina's and Trent's stories and thank goodness she didn't! I thoroughly enjoyed the plot as well as the narration of this book.

Striking beauty comes at a price. Rahab paid it when at the age of 15 she was sold into prostitution by the one man she loved and trusted—her father. With her keen mind and careful planning she turned heartache into success, achieving independence while still young. And she vowed never again to trust a man. Any man. God had other plans. Into the emotional turmoil of her world walked Salmone, a prominent leader of Judah, held in high esteem by all Israel.

This is the BEST audio book I have ever purchased!! Romantic, laugh out loud with tears rolling down your face funny, biblically accurate, exciting and overall a wonderful listen. Definitely a keeper!!! The narrator was certainly a complement to this book. Where are more stars when you need them?!? I am practically "chomping at the bits" for more books by this author!

This book was not a romance! Literally, in the last paragraph of the book, the author decided to stick in a proposal, from the two most unlikely people in the book. And this was after allowing you to believe that there MIGHT be a possible romance between the hero and heroine all through the book, even up to the chapter!
Had this book been under the catagory of western saga, I would have given it all five stars and then some.
