Publisher's Summary

Georgette Fortune has loved the same man for over two years now, but he does not even know she exists.

When the handsome Marquis of Onslow appears at a house party in her home, the crumbling Castle Fortune, he does not recognise her at all.

With six unmarried daughters to provide for, and in the hope of marriage settlements, Baron Fortune has invited guests to a home ill prepared for it. He hopes that young Lord Paxton, who has shown interest in his daughter Jocasta will finally offer for her. And while he is at it, he will introduce his other daughters to the company as well. It falls to Georgette to make all the arrangements, but she was not expecting to deal with her unrequited love, Onslow.

Georgette is largely ignored by her family, treated almost as a poor relation, but will Onlsow finally see her?

To add to her torture, the beautiful Miss Julia White has appeared, the woman Georgette was sure Onlsow loved. Another guest is Onslow's friend, Sir Justin Faulkes, who had once offered for Georgette himself and still shows his admiration.

With a full house of guests to see to, plus her wayward sisters to keep in line, Georgette will be busy.  But as she and Onslow become closer, is this a torture or a delight?

Good start to a new series

This is a good start to a new series. I was a bit confused because I couldn't pick out who Georgette would end up with until close to the end but it ended well. Not a bad way to spend a lazy Sunday and i am looking forward to more.

Cute story

This story is interesting. I liked the upbeat tone and narration, the humor, and the friendship between three of the main characters. However, there were so many characters to keep track of that my mind was constantly “on” in order to remember names and figure out who was whom in a scene. I want this author to write more books, because she’s got a few outstanding ones that I hope I get to see more of in the future. This one is worth the listen, but be prepared to keep track of a lot of people. I did enjoy the sense of the ridiculous in a few of the characters. That’s always rewarding, especially if some of them get a little comeuppance or insight.

4.5 Stars, I Think

As other reviewers have commented here and elsewhere, there are a lot of characters in this book. I eventually got them sorted and can guess a few future pairings as I suppose the author intended. That won’t make me any less likely to read their stories, especially Leonora’s.
The author has a sense of the ridiculous that is in the finest tradition of Austen and Heyer: besides all being set in the regency era it is the one thing they all have in common.
I enjoyed the main character and the hero and hope they make enough appearances in future novels or novellas to allow me a glimpse into how they deal with each other as husband and wife.
I would also like Sir Justin to get his own happy ending and perhaps he will, although if it’s with Julia it will be an uphill climb for me to accept it. Looking forward to the future novels in this series and hoping they’re as enjoyable as this!

Delicious

Superbly narrated, thoroughly enjoyable. A house party with interesting. diverse characters culminates in love for some and disappointments for others. I was sorry when it ended.

Fabulous Work!

This story is like the dated British Romantic dramas that I love watching on TV.

It was a lovely story where strongly built characters interacted in a well rounded plot. It was creatively done.

The accuracy of the customs and traditions pertaining to the era was impressive.

I found it witty, and the suspense of who Georgette would end up with was thrilling.

The writing was mature and graceful, and I applaud the author for the awesome delivery of her story.

The narrator was very versatile and was perfect in her interpretation of each character, and the expression of their words and thoughts .

I thoroughly loved and enjoyed listening to this novel. The author and narrator are certainly a duo to look out for.

I highly recommend, especially for those who love this genre.
