sweet quick story

It was a sweet clean romance with a very happy ending. A small amount of action in the beginning. The narrator was good at changing voices for each character.

Delightful!

In 1812 Lady Marina Ellis had fallen for Lord Banfield’s lies and now she found herself expecting a child. Her father was cruel and sent her to his equally cruel sister to have the child. On the way there her coach was attacked by highwaymen and she fought back so hard, they left her unconscious in a snow bank to freeze to death. Evan Lockhart was traveling home on his horse when he spied her. He rescued her and took her home with him. Then an adventure and the spirit of Christmas was in the air. Martin Royal did a smashing job bringing it to life with his narration of it!!

Christmas in the Duke Embrace

Finding herself in a terrible situation & being left for dead in a snow drift. After being banished to her cruel Aunts home from her even crueler fathers home. Lady Marina finds herself having to trust a stranger. They just may be each others answer for a special Christmas gift. Nice job on the narration.

Sweet Christmas Romance

Lady Marina Ellis was betrayed by a man who seduced and then left her. Cast out of her parent's home, Marina runs afoul of some bandits and her situation goes from awful to worse. Evan Lockheart, the Duke of Rowley, finds Marina lying nearly dead in a snowbank by the side of the road. While nursing her back to health, he finds his own heart in danger.

I really liked this sweet romance! There's a lot packed into this novella, there's action, romance, betrayal, forgiveness, and hope. I liked both main characters and thought they were perfect together. The narration was well done. It always surprises me to hear a male narrator for a romance, but this was a good surprise, with different voices for each character and a voice that pulled me right into the story. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Christmas in the Dukes Embrace

Amanda has a winner with this book. This is historically correct for the the early 1800’s, for an unwed mother and how her disgrace would effect her family. It is a quick and easy listen and did not drag. I would highly recommend

Happy Christmas Tale

Lady Marina Ellis has been disgraced, cast out of her home, robbed and left for dead in the snow. Evan Lockhart, Duke of Rowley, has lost everyone he loved and is riding the freezing weather to get away from the memories. When he finds Marina in the snow, he rescues her. An attraction grows as they get to know each other. Is it possible that Fate has smiled on the pair? Will a Christmas miracle mend two broken hearts? This is a quick and delightful story. The main characters are great. Both are kind, caring, and in need of love. Martin Royal’s narration was quite good. If you like sweet holiday stories, I recommend Christmas in the Duke’s Embrace.
