Publisher's Summary

When Lady Margaret Blake and her sister lose their parents in a boating accident, they are left to the guardianship of their uncle. Disregarding their feelings for the price their beauty will fetch on the marriage mart, he arranges a match for both.

Lady Margaret, however, has her own views on the matter and takes her fate into her own hands. Returning home after war to assume his responsibilities, Luke, Duke of Waverley, expects a nice, quiet life on his country estate. Within hours of stepping foot in England, though, he stumbles upon a young woman being attacked, and no sooner does he rescue her, than she runs away.

His sense of curiosity is piqued and his sense of honor compels him to help her, leading him on a merry chase. Meg escapes the marriage, only to find herself at the mercy of others. Fortunately, in the soldier she cannot avoid, she also finds herself in very capable hands. Only her uncle has a deeper reason for his actions and will stop at nothing to see his plans fulfilled.

On My Honor Review

The narration was very bad. The narrator sounded winded for much of the book, which distracted from the story.

Just ok

After having listened to other books by E Johns and narrated by Alex Wyndham, it's probably not fair to commet. BUT....the narrator of this book was so bad, that I skipped from chapter 8 to the end. IMHO, a poor narrator can absolutely ruin a good book. In this particular book, I was certainly not engrossed, but it seems like the flow was just not there. The characters were blah...that could have been due to the narration...or not. Anyway, I plan to return this book for credit. Sorry, E Johns.

On My Honour, I do want to be honest..

I have really enjoyed some of this author's books in the past, and I've read almost all of them. I did find the Miss Bell's Finishing School books a little less beguiling - I read all of the author's previous books on Kindle. This is the first of her books that came my way via Audible.
So, while I feel very bad to cause any pain to the creators of this version, I'm afraid I found the story and characters insipid, when not downright annoying, and towards the end of the story, I was tossing up whether I'd continue, as the heroine just seemed like a complete twit. Seriously - how many sheltered girls who, escaping from kidnap, are very nearly raped, and then continue to cast themselves into unsafe situations? [not spoiling here - she doesn't always do it, although it does look like she was seriously considering the possibilty a few too many times] I can see that she is motivated by her own honourable consideration for others... No, she's a twit.
I have to wonder whether my irritation was fueled by the narration, which was just awful. The narrator has a definite talent for capturing accents, but not so much for creating a sense of interaction between characters. His light tenor voice did not capture the hero's baritone very well at all. Indeed, he (the hero) seemed rather disengaged and detached from real life throughout, despite his intense preoccupation with rescuing the heroine from her evil relatives (and her ongoing folly). The rendition of female voices was worse, often verging into falsetto, and very rarely capturing the author's intention through tone, pitch or rhythm - unfortunately, the heroine's utterances too often came across as priggish, making her rather difficult to like.
I plan to wait some months, and read the book on Kindle. Hopefully, I'll be able to appreciate the writing more.
I definitely won't be revisiting the Audible version.
