I have read several of Her books. The story lines have been known to chill me to my very bones. This one has just as much to offer, just do not hear while all alone. Every ambient sound in your home would be the Predator. Surprise ending was remarkable. I don't know of another author as gifted as Patrica Crowell is. Worth the read. A++++

Great love story. Narration - dismal. Read on.

The narrator Thandie could not create the husky, gruff harsh voice she wanted without offending our ears. I figured out early on to drop the voice speed from normal to %75. Made a world of difference.
The feminine voices are great, as are the other male voices. She performs them well
Superbly read, otherwise. Oh, to some readers it simply will not do. But for those who are romantic you will enjoy. It is an unforgettable love story, semi tragic or so it first appears.

History woven into a love story along with Waterloo

Initially, I felt overwhelmed by the pure nature of this Duke, or Prince, with all their scores of officers, but persevered to the 2nd chapter. By then, the colorful world of the time swirled around me. In essence, the story sucked me up much like swirling water to a drain. .... You learn to care for these people in that time period. Never had I appreciated the term "He has met his Waterloo." ... Not being a history buff, I always felt Napoleon had been severely beaten. It truly was an act of pure heroism that won that battle. Pure courage and NOT giving up till the last man fell by the British and other countries. By then the first Chapter of who was whom hit hard when they fell along the way.. A long read but superior in the telling. Standing Ovation for Ms Heyer.

Delightfully simple yet entertaining

The story of being in the wrong place at the right time ... that forever changes the heroine's life. A truly simplistic read, yet still delightful enough after having finished a more challenging work. Characters are fun, with each holding their distinctive role in the book. I had just finished "Gone With the Wind", and needed a brief reprieve. This did just that. -- mainly a book for women, I believe.

Not a Sue Graffton ...but very well written.

I did feel for the young widow, and said go baby, go!

Worth reading. The narrator spoke well for each part.

It is better for some not to have so many sections of detailed sex. The mind is capable of creating these details. For this reason I will not buy the rest of the series. What a shame. Not a prude, just don' want details. Otherwise, great story

Here I am, tired, looking for a book to read, when I see this one, that I have already read. So, here is my short comments. LOVED it.

OK. I mean, tooooo funny. To fantastic. Just have to love the lady in the story. Poor thing, her plan backfired. However, after some time ... who knows? She just might ...

If I didn't know better, I would say she reminds me of Jo of Little Women, set in this time period, with the same problem. If you love to read, and you love Catherine Coulter, then by all means get this one. Never a boring moment.

Some say it is an easy read, and therefore, well ... too easy.

But me? I loved every moment of the book. Yes, I guessed some ideas and knew this or that. However, I was still surprised and totally entertained by the story line.

The heroine is lovely. The best friend is ... what I would like my best friend to be like. The husband is a dead beat (in many ways). The soon to be lovers (heroine and best friend) are they there, or not??

The sadness is truly felt. Bravery is without fault. OK. I like Nora Roberts again.

I loved, LOVED, that she did not have any love scenes that made my have to skip ahead. Not all of us out there want wild, unabandoned love scenes. Boy friends, kisses, and any of the rest, yes. But, when did we go from story line to sex stories?

As a Jane Austen fan, I believe that the story should be enough to fulfill your mind.

Good going, Nora!! I am getting ready to purchase another book. Don't disappoint me!

That one word above says it all. Fantastic! With out a doubt, most of her books are in the A pluses for me. Maybe she can switch to numbers next, and have a true man developing in her world? Just saying

Beginning was different than I envisioned. Since I can usually figure out a book within two to three chapters, this one had me good. It is her very METHOD OF STORY TELLING that intrigues me. She would have made Alfred Hitchcock a great wife. So grateful to find her here on Audible. As famous lines go, "Please Sir, I want some more!"
