Publisher's Summary

Geoffrey Winters, Viscount Redbrooke, was not always the hard, unrelenting lord driven by propriety. After a tragic mistake, he resolved to honor his responsibility to the Redbrooke line and live a life free of scandal. Knowing his duty is to wed a proper, respectable English miss, he selects Lady Beatrice Dennington, daughter of the Duke of Somerset, who's the perfect woman for him - until he meets Miss Abigail Stone....

To distance herself from a personal scandal, Abigail Stone flees America to visit her uncle, the Duke of Somerset. She finds herself helplessly intrigued by the hard, too proper Geoffrey. With his strict appreciation for decorum and order, he's nothing like the man she's always dreamed of.

Abigail is everything Geoffrey doesn't need. She upends his carefully ordered world at every encounter. As they begin to care for one another, Abigail carefully guards the secret that resulted in her journey to England.

Only, if Geoffrey learns the truth about Abigail, he must decide which he holds most dear: his place in Society or Abigail's place in his heart.

frustrated progress

Although I liked the story, it was irritating how simple and blind the characters progressed, I understand the fear of her virtue being in question, but she was obtuse in stupid moments. And the gentlemen was just as vaguely blind and naïve

Finally, American Woman Capture's...

What made the experience of listening to Always Proper, Suddenly Scandalous the most enjoyable?

Always, Tim Campbell and his English accent but now with American voice just as affecting...

What was one of the most memorable moments of Always Proper, Suddenly Scandalous?

The appearance of the "scandalous" rogue Alexander Powers...the boorish rogue's are not often found to be redeeming.

What does Tim Campbell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Tim's ability to bring all the characters to life and present all the emotions intended by the characters words as if he lives them...

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, since formulaic Christi Caldwell, these are anticipated distractions from other readings or as an accompaniment for daily tasks...

I'm reviewing to remind me I dislike this author.

i really regret buying this book centered on two regrets that were repeated over and over for nine hours. Move on!

A MUST READ!

I've really been enjoying this series and I truly love the person who has been voicing the series. He is very good and soooooo much better than a lot of voices I've heard! I wish he could do all of the books I read on Audible!

An American in London

A good read. I was hoping for something different at the end but this was quite acceptable. (Three stars, for me, is good.) I'm looking forward to the next in this series.

Frustrating and Predictable

I struggled to finish, I hate books are based on the premise of "I shouldn't do this, but I will do it anyway". So story line is stretched beyond belief. It should have been based in America, as all the rules of English society were ignored. Truly tedious, not worth buying.
