This Story Is Sweet

Publisher's Summary

Angelique is a short story.

"The Marquise de Chabernet, her French grandmother, had fixed her with glittering eyes and told her when she was but 10 years old, 'If there is something that you want in this life, mon ange, do not believe anyone who says you cannot have it.'"

But Angelique, living with the Duke and Duchess of Saith and their daughter beautiful Rosalind feels too distant from hope to want anything. And then she sees handsome, wicked Sir Rafael Villiers, and she knows her Destiny. It is time for the plain and timid Miss Torrington to remember she is also a de Chabernet, and her grandmother's daughter. But Villiers is interested in her beautiful cousin - so how can she get his attention?

Can Angelique pull it off? With the help of Rosalind's brother, her amused confidant Ferdinand, she just might do it.

Alicia Cameron has been called "a worthy successor to Georgette Heyer" and has been beloved by fans of Jane Austen. Here is another witty short story, full of romance and adventure to warm the heart and make you laugh.

Delightful short story.

Just under 54 mins of audio, this delightful romance is sweet and Cinderella-like. It was a wonderful escape and filler between the longer stories I tend to listen to. If you are looking for a short, delightful and clean audible experience, this is it.

I thoroughly enjoyed Helen Taylor’s narration.

Totally Charmed 💕

It seems almost scandalous to give a short novella an unequivocal 5-Star rating. But there it is. This book captured my heart, my imagination, and my desire for the HEA that I so desperately desired. I loved every moment of Angelique’s dreamy story. You will too!!

Narration was lovely as well :)

Fun but too short

This was a sweet little story without much angst. In that way, it was a refreshing break.

Destiny is not in your hands

This is a beautifully written French "Cinderella" story. Angelique knew exactly who and what she wanted, but destiny had other plans for her. The twist at the end is beautiful.

Could have been a great story

But it being just under an hour did not help with the storyline at all. I believe had this been spread over a few hours the love could have been built up better and not so childish sounding.

Very sweet story!

Any additional comments?

A very well done story with a hint of Cinderella-flavor to it! A little predictable, but a pleasurable ride regardless. I will definitely be looking for more by this author!
