Publisher's Summary

A shy, tangle-tongued debutante and a former soldier make an unlikely but fated match as they hasten for the Isle of Skye.

Orphaned heiress Olivia de Vere should have the world - or at least the men of the ton - at her feet. But when she’s thrown out of a young ladies’ academy, Olivia doubts she’ll ever find someone who will love her, rather than her bank account. To make matters worse, her dissolute cousin Felix is determined to marry her against her wishes. A virtual prisoner in her guardians’ London townhouse, Olivia can’t help but develop a tendre for her neighbor, a handsome Scottish marquess. 

Battle-scarred in more ways than one, Hamish MacQueen, Lord Sleat, has braved many dangers in life. But nothing has quite prepared him for the shock of having a young child dumped on his doorstep with a note claiming she’s his daughter. Just in the nick of time his pretty neighbor appears, offering to act as a nursemaid for the young girl on their journey to his estate in Scotland. He suspects she has her own reasons for wanting to flee the country....

The close traveling quarters leads to a fierce attraction between Olivia and Hamish that seems impossible to resist. But when ghosts from the past and monsters from the present threaten to tear them apart, will their unlikely love survive?

The Narration was Torture

I have listened to the three published audiobooks in the series; books one and two were narrated by Sienna Frances and book three had the unfortunate luck of being narrated by Elizabeth Jasicki.

Ms. Jasicki’s narration was torture. She read the novel slowly, not in a manner to lend it any weight or to afford the listener the luxury of immersing oneself in the plot, instead causing discomfort, aggravation, and a blinding rage in the hope she would Finish. The. Damn. Story. And. Shut. The. *%#@ Up. Each male character sounded as though he was a drunken sot or on the verge of gasping out his last breath. The female characters were barely discernible, one from the other. All “spoke” as though they were in slow motion. And, I swear to God, if I EVER hear “excellent” voiced in that manner again, I’ll pull my hair out.

I have vowed to avoid any audiobook narrated by Elizabeth Jasicki.

Shamefully Graphic

I respectfully suggest that the author, who is a great admirer Jane Austen, be brave enough to try to write without explicit sex.

Applause, Applause

Although the struggles between the main characters were frustrating and seemed to just compound with every twist of the plot, you can’t help wanting love to win in the end. The conclusion deserved a standing O

Boring and many unanswered questions

This story had too many storylines and did not follow through on them. The story itself was very boring and I found myself just wishing for it to be over. Very disappointing as I enjoyed other books in this series. The narrator was fine, I just wish she had a better story to read

Yawn...they need therapy

There was so much promise. I was really looking forward to Olivia's story. There was a cute meeting which gave ao much promise...and then, nothing. This was almost clean...only one sort of, and one actual, yet boring, consummation in the last 20 minutes, them ta da! Everything is fine. Nod to say I wanted tons of scenes. There just wasn't any passion between the two, no real connection or chemistry. I spent most of this book pretty pissed and aggravated.
***Spoilers Ahead***
They could have used the carriage accident which killed her parents and the one which happened as a bonding stepping stone. Tilda? Boring and a practically ineffective inclusion of the story.
The villain? Pointless and dull. She could have told him Felix abused her, and threatened to kill her. Instead, he stole lots of her money, disappeared, and meh. He's gone, and done. His family didn't see something was wrong, and didn't try to push it along? The valet offered to help...why was it mentioned, if nothing was going to be done about it?
I enjoyed the first two...so not this one. I have to read Charlotte's story bcs she's a trip, and started the society back in school. And with Max? I look forward to forgetting this one.
The narrator was fine.

like where it ended up

while I do sometimes gravitate to a good, old romance novel. My gosh this book dragged on at a snail 🐌 pace. if you need story about a rake who have idiotic notions about himself. this is that book. sigh 😕

I almost didn’t listen because of a review

There is a review on here that talks about how much the narrator sucks so I almost didn’t listen!! I’m so glad I ignored it and listened anyway because that person is Wrong. She did a great job and the story was intriguing and I didn’t feel there were any draggy parts at all. I wish in the epilogue that they would have told of an ill fate for Felix but besides that it was a very satisfying book and I enjoyed it very much.

Wow - this book is bad.

I didn’t finish the book. I couldn’t finish the book. I didn’t even care what happened.

The performance was horrible. It might have been a bit better if someone else had read it, but not by a lot. Her reading style for the main is almost childlike at sometimes and her voice for the male characters all sound 85 years old.

The storyline is all over the place and it’s just not worth the time to listen.

Terrible

An after thought with a cookie cutter theme . Really, do better. I just can't believe I listened through it
