Publisher's Summary

What if fairy tales are real? 

Donovan Turner, viscount of Warwick, is a charming reprobate. It's all an act to cover the tatters of his broken heart. French brandy is his closest ally, and he ensures it is always within reach. 

Lady Estella Simms was forced into exile by her wicked stepfather without any means of support. With what little funds she has, she takes on a venture no other lady would consider to survive - smuggling. 

In a twist of fate, Donovan ends up as a stowaway on board Estella's ship and too drunk to recall how. Finding Estella is the last thing he expected, but something for which he secretly hoped. Even though her heartless refusal sent him down a path of destruction, his love for her never truly died.

Danger is close, and they must rely on each other for survival. Lord Warwick and Lady Estella must learn to trust each other again and decide if love is powerful enough to conquer the evil thwarting their happily ever after.

I liked it!

I received a free copy of this audiobook for an honest review.

Love Dawn Brower; she is a great, entertaining writer. The majority of her stories are historical romance, and that's one of my favorite genres.

My only question is in relation to how Estella was able to accomplish as much as she had. Given the time period and the fact that she was female, how did she manage to get a ship (yes, she found the money to afford one), but with the crew? It was uncommon having a female in a power position (unless she had a fortune and was a widow), much less a female captain. That part was kind of unbelievable. But either way, this was a good story!

As for the narrator, she had an interesting voice. There wasn't that much variety between the character voices, and I wish the pauses between sentences/paragraphs were a little longer than what they were. It's like she'd go from one sentence directly to the next with a very short pause (shorter than normal, in my opinion).

Always My Viscount

Lady Estella must break Donovan's heart in order to save him from ruin. Or so she thinks. Her evil stepdad blackmailed her into this decision then sends her off to exile. He thinks cutting her off financial and from society will break her, but little does he know she is very resourceful. She gets a ship and turns pirate/smuggler. Only Donovan never got over the heartbreak and with some behind the scenes help the two get thrown together. This is a fun and adventurous story. Nice job on the narration.

Love always wins in the end

So happy to have Donovan’s story. I feel in love with him in Forever my Earl, Ever Beloved Book 1. Donovan and Estella were torn apart by her evil Step Father. After 3 years apart they find each other in a very unique way. Estella is a strong likeable character who took drastic measures to take care of herself. Eleanor Katz did a great job with the narration moving easily between characters. Another great Dawn Brower book!

Delightful Listen

I really enjoyed this short Regency second chance at love story. Dawn Brower has a wonderful way of writing endearing characters and surprising twists. This book does not disappoint. Eleanor Katz performed the book beautifully with her smooth voice and distinctive voices for various characters. This book is a standalone listen and part of a series.
