Publisher's Summary

From beloved historical romance author Marion Chesney comes the third installment in the Royal Ambition series.

The Misses Penelope Yarwood, Euphemia Perkins, and Letitia Helmsdale all smugly informed her that the Marquess of Cleveden was at once the most eligible and the most elusive catch in the London marriage mart. Society's most dazzling beauties had failed to win him over yet, and a newcomer like Fiona didn't stand a ghost of a chance of having him look at her twice.

That was all that fiery-tempered Fiona needed to hear, and she bet - far more wealth than she possessed - that she would snare the maddeningly elusive marquess before the season's end.

Now Fiona faces the risk of losing a wager she cannot repay - and more, the even greater danger of losing her heart.

Fancy the fastest way to ruin a good book?

Simply have it “read” by this so called narrator. Stilted, unnatural, mispronounced, mangled and utterly ruined is what you call any book that this narrator attempts to read.

READ this book, but do NOT waste money or credits thinking you’d like to listen to it. I can’t imagine how a book makes it to audible with no one listening to it first, it only takes a moment to realize it might make your ears bleed.

Liked it OK

It's difficult for women to do men's voices. In this one our hero sounds a bit limp. The heroine wasn't given the best voice. If you go for this genre it was a pretty good story, but the narration does not hold up.

Sweetest of all Beaton’s Regency Romances

This is the typical Chesney/Beaton’s regency romance, but the characters are softer and more kind. Even the antagonist, although very malicious,
doesn’t seem quite a sinister as one would expect.

Despite the usually, abysmal narration of Charlotte Anne Dore (Seriously, how does this woman get work?!?) you’ll be left feeling warm and cheerful after reading this little gem.
