Great book! Not so great listen.

I love Jane Feather's books, I think she writes a great romance filled with intrigue and deep human emotions. I looked forward to this third book after reading the first two and it was as good as the first two but I'm sorry Jill Tanner is not my favorite narrator. I don't want to be mean as she has excellent skills as a narrator but as a romance narrator she comes off as sterile and cold, very unromantic. I can think of many other genres she could read for an be incredible but in this one area I just can't connect with the story when she reads. This is the 4th book I have had to abandon because her sterile reading just causes me to lose interest. I end up buying the book and picking it up where I left off because I just can't finish listening. It might just be me, but I would recommend future listeners to take advantage of the preview button before purchasing to see if you can stand 6 hours of the droning Jill Tanner delivers. Sorry Jill.

A n unsuitable bride

I enjoyed all of the series.all had strong intelligent heroes and heroines.
Justice was often not obtained with laws in enforced in this time
period .The writing is so good that I felt like I was there with the h/h.
I would never want to meet anyone like Sir Stephen's wife.She was
an awful villain.
