Publisher's Summary

With her husband's dying words, "My marchioness has it," the Marchioness of Huntingdon is thrown into a nightmare of intrigue and danger. But even those who are holding her brother ransom can't force her to do the impossible - hand over a necklace she doesn't have.

Major Samuel Bennett believes the newly widowed Lady Claire Huntingdon is a traitor. He intends to get the necklace he's convinced she has, before sending her to the gallows. But when he meets the captivating widow, he discovers that nothing is as it seems.

Claire knows she can't trust anyone, but she isn't given a choice when Major Bennett arrives, demanding she give him the necklace. And it isn't until she's forced to put her life in his hands that she realizes it isn't only her life she's in danger of losing - but her heart as well.

Good plot

Enjoyed the story, even if it did seem excessively drawn out. Sentiments were expressed repeatedly; Ms. Landon is somewhat skilled in the art of tautology.

Spies and romance and such....

Very fast paced, action filled. historical romantic spy story.

The heroine endured much, but fought not to be a victim. A lot of serious issues were address, such as love, honor, duty, honesty and trust, but this was done so skillfully and effortlessly you were kept engrossed in the smooth flowing of the story.

It captured my attention and interest all the way through.

Read and enjoy.

the hero is worst spy ever.

Though Rosalyn Landor gives her usual brilliant performance, there's not much one can do when the plot holes are so big that a coach and four can be driven though. The hero is an awfully sloppy spy, the heroine clueless, the mystery resolved thinly. I do not recommend.

real suspense.

Where does Ransomed Jewels rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This has got to be one of my favorites of all my audiobooks and possibly the most suspenseful.

Great Love Story with Wonderful Narration!

I really enjoyed this book - not your "run of the mill historical romance". It had spies, suspense, danger, treason, stolen jewels & coded documents naming surprising guilty person. Major Samuel Bennett believes the newly widowed Lady Claire Huntingdon is a traitor & he intends to get the necklace & coded papers away from her before sending her to prison. After the two meet, he is captivated by the widow & she may or may not be as guilty as he first thought. Claire is strong, intelligent, brave & beautiful & little by little & many adventures, they find themselves in love.. I loved all of the twists & turns in the plot & the chameleon characters were great. The ending was a definite surprise to me, I never would have guessed this character was the traitor. I felt all the characters were well developed & I hope we get to see some of them down the road in this series. I have read many of Laura Landon's books & find her style of writing very enjoyable - I highly recommend this series.

More Romance Than Risk

I love the old “genteel” mysteries, however, this book was more mushy than mysterious. Tedious towards the end,—the first book in a long time that I almost ended before finishing.

Disappointing

Lead male character wasn't likable at all. He was an jerk, not a Man.

Story is good

While I liked the story I found myself rolling my eyes at many cliche phrases used describing Claire's thought/emotions. Maybe I've just read too many historical fiction....

No. Just no

I listened to this because it was free with our prime membership. It’s several hours of my life I’ll never get back. I actually sped it up to get it over with quicker. I admire the writer for actually sitting down and writing a book but could you have tried to be a *little* original? ‘Her world shattered into a million tiny pieces.....’. Yawn. That’s so 70’s......1870’s
