Publisher's Summary

Augusta Ballinger was quite sure that it was all a dreadful mistake. The chillingly pompous and dangerously disturbing Earl of Graystone could not possibly wish to marry her. Why, it was rumored that his chosen bride must be a veritable model of virtue. And everyone knew that Augusta, as the last of the wild, reckless Northumberland Ballingers, was a woman who could not be bothered by society's rules.

That was why the spirited beauty had planned a midnight encounter to warn the earl off, to convince him that she would make him a very poor wife indeed. But when she crawled in through his darkened study window, Augusta only succeeded in strengthening Harry's resolve: to kiss the laughter from those honeyed lips and teach this maddening miss to behave! How could he possibly know that it was he who was in for a lesson...as his brazen fiancée set out to win his heart - and an old and clever enemy stepped in to threaten their love, their honor, and their very lives?

Wonderful story, shame about the narrator

This is one of my favorite Amanda Quick novels, great story! But I definitely agree with the previous reviewer, the narrator's attempt at a masculine voice is awful. Very uncomfortable and I found myself dreading every time a male character had a line! I love Amanda Quick's novels, but unfortunately nearly all of her audible books are read by this particular narrator and I refuse to listen to another ghastly attempt at a male voice. Surely there are other english narrators - please Ms. Quick, expand your selection of narrators.

Story Great...NARRATED AWFUL

The story is great but the narrators voice is AWFUL.....The accent is nasally and when she deepens her voice to sound like a man she sounds like a evil rapest or something from a horror movie...not even sure how to explain how awful it is... was not a good listen at all. I didn't listen past the first part of the book. Don't waste your money just buy the book and read it yourself....

Fantastic.

Very good story. I will be listening to this one again. Historical romance with some action and the narration is fantastic. I really enjoy Anne Flosnik's narration. Some people give her negative feed back but I think her narration brings life to the story, she catches the mood and sex of the characters. Every Amanda Quick novel I have listened to has been great.

A little frustrating

I was a little frustrated with Harry's penchant for sex when angry and the female lead's willingness to be called "lacking" in intellect. His coldness was akin to a cold shower and his controlling behavior wasn't adequately compensated by his emotional epiphany at the story's end. There was very little catharsis. I think the female protagonist should have climbed out the window ONE MORE TIME....and KEPT Going!

Romance in old English

All the Amanda quick books are compiling and filled with romance, sometimes I am never sure if it is the narrator (Anne Flosnik) that makes it for me or not she is awesome. I often find my self listing more then once to each book and each time it seems like the first time. The writing is always done in a way that I understand even if I have never heard the old English word before I know what she is talking about. This book is just as impacting as all the others, I did not like the earl at first felt him a little to hard headed but then the story came around so that my heart went to him as well.

Unnecessary explicit sex.

The story was a good one , but the villain was easily identified early on. The H was too pompous and domineering, and the h, who was supposed to be intelligent, acted tstl too many times. The explicit sex was unnecessary, and seemed added to tittilate the reader and pad the page count.

Just a little over done......

A signature feature of the author is a stalwart handsome male who is inspired by a strong minded passionate female to soften his demeanor and succumb to love and marriage, with her of course. Her clever repartee and lively adventures are funny, furious, and dangerous and the book’s characters round out and become believable because of it. Rendezvous does all that but for me, the male is a little too bossy, too domineering which makes it clear that the female is not what she claims. To be blackmailed into marriage and put up with the dominance even over trivialities doesn’t wash. Supposedly when she falls in love with Mr. No Budge, she’s developed armor with ear plugs. I just feel that the male is overdone and made to appear conniving and sneaky and demanding. There are better books by the author (my favorite), try one of them first.

Good story, narrator difficult to listen to

I enjoyed the story. The story however, the narrator’s was way over dramatic. Parts were done well, but I had to increase the reading speed to get through the irritation of the narrator.

A wonderful book by Amanda Quick

I enjoyed reading Amanda's book as narrated by Anne Flosnik. I now have several of her books and love to listen to them over and over again. The stories just don't get old
