Publisher's Summary

The overly scientific, always respectable, and socially awkward Alexander Banks has just been informed his name resides on a betrothal agreement right above the name of the worst chit in all of England. With a loophole that allows him to marry another without consequence before the 30th anniversary of his birth, he has only four weeks to find another woman and make her his wife. Being the logical scientist he is, Alex decides to take his friend's advice and treat his quest for a bride just like a science experiment.

Caroline Sinclair is still trying to scrape her jaw off the floor after hearing her cousin, Lady Olivia's, latest announcement when the object of their conversation, Alex Banks, Olivia's intended, arrives for what Caroline assumes is a bout of drawing-room chitchat with his betrothed. But when an experiment is mentioned, Caroline, who cannot resist a science experiment any more than she can deny her lungs air, volunteers to help before she even knows what his latest experiment is!

Enjoyable read

I gave this book 3.5 stars. At times it dragged a bit but over all it was entertaining. I would certainly want to read the others in the series.

Fell in love with these characters

This book was so sweet and I absolutely loved the characters. I enjoyed their courtship and the encounters with the evil cousin Olivia were hilarious! I loved all the secondary characters and look forward to hearing their stories. This book was definitely worth a credit!

good story - poor choice of narrator<br />

the voice of the narrator was to me like nails on a blackboard. I had a hard time I turned the book back on. The story however was good enough for me to cone back to it.The hero went a little too fast from nerdy scientist to the strong manly type and heroine stayed a little to timid until the end. I would have liked to have known, if the evil cousin eventually got her and if her good brother eventually found happiness.

I could not listen to this book.

What didn’t you like about Stevie Zimmerman’s performance?

Sound recording quality!!!!!

Any additional comments?

The narration was tinny and hollow. I could not listen to it as the sound quality was so unpleasant. I have other books by this author that I enjoyed but they had a different narrator

I kept it in my phone and listened to it twice

I'm thinking about listening to it again sometime. What a fun book I'm not sure it would be is good to read as it was to listen to but I had no trouble imagining with these people look like I got to know their personalities. I thought the character development was good.. thoroughly enjoyable... highly recommended
