This Story Is Flirty

Publisher's Summary

Blessed with beauty, Mrs. Manners never bothered with the lesser skills of grammar and spelling. So, in order to entrap a second husband, namely the dashing Duke of Denbigh, she needed Miss Verity Bascombe. Surely the modest chit would be honored to write her love letters.

Poor Verity! Her old schoolmate was as selfish as ever. But the lovely girl's gilded pen soon had the duke most intrigued by the poetic Mrs. Manners!

But alas, what began as a tiny deception became troublesome indeed - for Verity soon found herself enamored of the handsome duke!

cute story with a helpful parrot

I don't like this narrator, Mia Chiaromonte. The story was very cute and involved pets helping the romance.

PLEASE LEARN TO READ THE WORDS OR LOOK THEM UP! <br />

This reader must be faking a British accent. Grosvenor, Berkeley, rout, canary and about 5 other words REPEATEDLY MISPRONOUNCED!! what is so bad about it is that it is distracting to anyone who has ever heard these words pronounced correctly. they are not just read once. it's over and over again! I am so tired of the shoddy quality of these recordings!! Please fix this Audible! even if the readers don't care about the quality of their product, audible should.

Amusing

Light escapism not meant to be examined closely but a funny and satisfying listen as we follow the misadventures of Verity, the lovable heroine and her motley menagerie especially Pretty Polly.

The reader's Deep South United States accent intruded too often which might be more annoying in a serious listen. Still too much of an unnecessary distraction.
