Publisher's Summary

With more than 25 million copies of her books in print, Amanda Quick is one of today’s most popular authors of Regency-era romances. Her 23 New York Times best-selling novels are delightful combinations of fascinating characters, clever conversations, and fleet-footed suspense.

Emma Greyson is grateful for her position as lady’s companion. The salary is generous, and Lady Mayfield is kind. But when Emma meets the darkly handsome Edison Stokes, a guest at her employer’s estate, the flame-haired beauty is lured into his dangerous quest for an ancient book of potions. Can she help him find it before its magical powers are used for evil purposes? From passionate moments to midnight ambushes, Amanda Quick keeps I Thee Wed moving at a delicious clip. Narrator Barbara Rosenblat brings to life not only the intrepid heroes, but also the opulent society that serves as a backdrop for their growing attraction.

Author had this formula down pat

Is there anything you would change about this book?

No

Would you be willing to try another book from Amanda Quick? Why or why not?

Yes. Great escape that doesn't tax the brain.

Any additional comments?

Amanda Quick is a master at the Regency Era romance. Barbara Rosenthal is a brilliant narrator, and I would go so far as to say, the reason I would listen to more Quick novels. My only complaint is the books are very predictable, but if you know that going in all is fine.

Bad audio editing

Would you consider the audio edition of I Thee Wed to be better than the print version?

No. There is too much background noise. It's not the narrator because the sounds are there in the background while she is talking. It's like the man coughing through Mistress. It's like they thought since these were older they wouldn't take the same care editing as the newer ones.

Reread several times

Sort of part of a series, but only loosely linked. Basically a stand alone, and one of her better ones, I think. Emma is quick witted and resourceful, Edison is wrapped too tight but driven. The blurb gives clues. I find it to be a nice, non-demanding read about once a year or so. Enough suspenseful and sensual tension to keep one's interest without being gory or a bodice-ripper.
Barbara Rosenblatt is a good audio performer and doesn't overplay the roles.

Not a fan of narrator

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I'm not sure. The story was interesting but I could not stand the narration. I am not sure if it's the sound quality or just the narrator but it was hard to listen to.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Her voice was too low and scratchy and you could hear every time she swallowed and smacked her lips.

Narration outshines the writing

I have greatly enjoyed several Amanda Quick books narrated by Barbara Rosenblatt such as Mischief and Mistress especially. But even her stellar narration couldn't save "I Thee Wed".

Good!

I have read all of Amanda Quick's historical novels and loved them all. This one was a little different but I still enjoyed it and loved the hero and heroine. The narrator did a good job but at times it seems like she was sucking on something. Would have preferred another narrator for this book but all in all it is a good listen.

Almost a copycat of the one word titles written first!

Amanda Quick knew no equal when she burst into the historical English scene in the Romance section. Her one word titles were phenomenal and brought home hours of exciting, romantic reading usually with a strong, willful male and an equally saucy, strong minded female. The nimble repartee and machinations of the two were frosting on the cake! I Thee Wed is one such book and it lives up to the reputation of the Quick talent. I highly recommend!

I Thee Wed.

Thank you for the years of Vanzugara, and lamplight. I hope you will continue writing them. They are my favorite.
Love an Amanda Quick.
