Publisher's Summary

Forced by bankruptcy and scandal into exile in France, Lord Waverly expects never to return to his homeland until, staggering home from a gaming hell in the wee hours of the morning, he encounters a young novice escaping from a convent. When she asks him to take her to England, promising him that her English grandfather will reward him handsomely for her safe conveyance, Waverly reluctantly agrees.

Alas, Waverly soon realizes the enormity of his task. When he delivers the irrepressible Lisette to her grandfather's home only to discover that the old man is dead, Waverly is left with no alternative but to offer her the protection of his name. And when he is unexpectedly reunited with the woman whose marriage precipitated his flight to France, Waverly begins to discover that his marriage of convenience is likely to prove very inconvenient indeed....

Lord Waverly redeemed

I was afraid I wouldn't like this last installment in the Weaver trilogy. (The detestable Lord Waverly as the hero? My beloved Brundys facing marital troubles? GASP!) But to my relief, I enjoyed it immensely.

The plot hinges on a big (make that MASSIVE) misunderstanding between Sir Ethan and Lady Helen. Maddeningly vague conversations make each party believe they're discussing something entirely different. (Yes, I wanted to tear my hair out at a few of them!)

The author used this trope to weave her two storylines together and to subtly bring each character to a realization of what they truly loved and valued.

She even redeemed Lord Waverly! He slowly grew into the honor and compassion he never knew he had.

Such an innocent heroine

Really enjoyed the book and although a short story it had very well developed characters. Only negative was the speed at which the narrator read the story. He is excellent with accents and did a good job which would have been an excellent job had he just slooooooowed down

Very enjoyable.

I really enjoyed this book, as well as the series. Part of it reminded me of a tame version of The Benny Hill Show. I don’t know why since it has been years/decades since I had watched it. I am glad this was in the Romance Package. I highly recommend it.

lively, clean period romance

A marriage of convenience followed by lively romantic mix-ups makes for an enjoyable tale. Well performed, also.

A Regency..

This novel begins with a strange meeting between a Lord Waverly and the female lead, Lisette, who is in need of his assistance.

Waverly agrees to aide Lisette and they set out on their journey,

however, along the way, they end up with carriage trouble, near his

former "Friend" Ethan Brundy, and the story line quickly takes off from this point.

Overall, This was a well written historical tale filled with twists and a bit of humor.

Noah Michael Levine did well with the narration as usual.

Too close to Georgette Heyer characters

The characters and first part of the book are too close to Georgette Heyer's classic 'These Old Shades', which is far and above a much better book: the character's appearances, names of the relatives, how the heroine and hero talk, nicknames he calls her, and others. It's been a long time since I read 'These Old Shades', so I can't spell out details, but too many cropped up in my mind. I hope it was subconscious suggestion or coincidences.

I didn't like it either way. Too many things happened that were too far beyond reality. I can only take so much suspension of disbelief.

Enjoyable and interesting

I always enjoy a good romance without all the descriptive bed scenes. The narrator took a little while to adjust to only because most of the romances I’ve listened to so far are read by women. He did a good job.

Great narration!

I love Sherri Cobb South's characters because of their strong values (loyalty, kindness, and integrity). I've enjoyed being part of Nathan and Lady Helen's story. I was a bit disappointed in their storyline in this novel, however. The conflict could've been resolved with some clear communication! After all the things they overcame, they falter on some contrived misunderstandings.

Lord Waverly returns to England after four years away. He brings a 17-year-old Lisette who he meets when she's running from a convent. She convinces him to help her find her long-lost grandfather. I know opposites attract, but I have a hard time with these two. Lisette is innocent and trusting; Waverly is worldly and jaded. Their relationship feels more paternal than romantic.

The author wraps up this series beautifully!

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Loved it!!!!

Any additional comments?

We meet other characters from the weaver takes a wife, but you don't have to read the other books since you are told what happens in part of it due to Lord Waverly action four years ago.
I found the book to be really funny and it reminded me of Georgette Heyer's books.
I did find Lord Waverly to be immature at times and I wanted to strangle him in certain areas of the book. However, I really like the main female character Lisette. The author shows us her naivety, her determination and quick thinking.

I would highly recommend this to all since it is a clean read.

I have not listened to this narrator before and It took me a while to get used to his voice but as the story progressed I realised he suited the book and I wouldn't mind listening to his other works.
