A sweet romance

This was a sweet and enjoyable story. Tabitha and Priscilla are about to enjoy their season with no thoughts of marriage. However, a wager is about to put an end to that. Colin, the Earl of Harcourt, has the reputation of a rogue and although he is found in a compromising situation with Tabitha, he does offer marriage. Although Tabitha is attracted to Colin, can she trust him, given his reputation? I loved the relationship between the sisters. All the main characters are very likeable. I enjoyed listening to this story, Stevie Zimmerman uses different voices to bring the scenes to life. This is a short audiobook, ideal for when time is limited.

Sweet Story

When Colin Brooks, Earl of Harcourt, wagers Reginald St. John that he can kiss Lady Tabitha Pemberton, he doesn’t expect to be caught, but he was. Once engaged to Tabitha, he spends time with her and they come to love each other. They discover that falling in love is the easy part. Colin has the reputation of being a rake, and when one of his past indiscretions comes to light, it could spell the end of his relationship with Tabitha. Both are heartbroken. Can Tabitha learn to trust him? Can Colin prove that he has changed and is worthy of her love?

There are actually two romances in this sweet story. Twins Tabitha and Priscilla Pemberton meet and become betrothed to Colin and Reginald. The girls have strong personalities and a wonderful relationship. Colin and Reginald are rather typical rakes until they meet the girls when, of course, they become perfect gentlemen. All four characters are likeable. You want things to work out for them.

Stevie Zimmerman is an excellent reader and made this story a quick and enjoyable listen.

A historical with modern views

Without spoiling the story for others, the plot was personally not to my liking. I felt that the story was a little rushed. It would have been better with more details. If Colin had attempted to make amends to Tabitha, instead of the other way around, I think that I would have enjoyed the story more. For a historical romance, I found the characters to be too accepting of a situation that would have been frowned upon during that era.
