Publisher's Summary

In the sixth novel of the enchanting Rhymes with Love series from New York Times best-selling author Elizabeth Boyle, a nobleman falls in love with a beautiful spy he must protect.

Lord Rimswell is a man of honor and absolutes. If he says something is impossible, it is. Yet his life of right and wrong is turned upside down when he finds himself in a compromising situation with the most unyielding, yet maddeningly beautiful, woman in London. If only he had not given in to the irresistible temptation to kiss her. Now he must marry her.

Miss Roselie Stratton is the very definition of impossible - headstrong, outspoken, and carrying a reticule of secrets that could ruin more than her reputation. Kissing Brody is hardly the most ruinous thing Roselie has ever done as a secret agent for the Home Office...nor will she let a marriage of convenience stop her from continuing her work. Little does Roselie realize that she has underestimated Brody's resolve to keep her safe - for he has hopelessly fallen in love with her and is determined to do the impossible by stealing her heart in return.

Loved this book and the awesome narration..



I love historical novels about spies, especially when one of the spies is a woman. I liked that Roselie/Asteria didn’t act like she would have preferred to be a man, and didn’t act like she was all that tough, just that she could almost take care of herself and she only told Brody that once instead of over and over again throughout the story. Roselie was better with words, and she had some great lines.

This was all about Roselie being a masked spy and Brody’s attempt to unmask her, while falling in love with her. And Roselie, having grown up with Brody, always trying to hide her identity from him. It was about them both trying to find out who was selling England’s secrets to France. It was a book filled with spies, murder, kidnapping and romance. What more can you ask for? And there was some fun and entertaining secondary characters in it, too. Budgey was really funny and I was sorry he wasn't in the book except for the very beginning. I wondered why he was even added to the book. He seemed to be a non-entity to me. He was part of the Ton, acted like a fool for a few minutes then he disappeared. It was a little odd, and disappointing.

There was sex scene and a little desire once in a while. No swearing.

As to the narration: I absolutely love Susan Duerden. She does great voices BUT most of all she reads with emotions and enthusiasm. AND, most importantly, she laughs and whispers when the book calls for it. That’s the most important thing to me, especially the whisper. When a narrator reads that a character whispers and the narrator doesn’t, then that makes for a bad narrator. The very worst thing is when there’s a female narrator and the book says the hero’s voice is deep and sexy but he sounds just like a girl when he talks, THAT is really a bad narrator. And still, in 2017, the female narrators are ruining books by not even trying to sound even a little bit like a man. Amazing!!

adored almost everything

Read for Review/Listened for Fun (Avon/Audible)
Overall Rating: 4.75
Story Rating: 4.50
Character Rating: 5.00

Audio Rating: 4.50 (Not part of the overall rating)

Quick Thoughts: I adored almost everything about Six Impossible Things. The gumption of Roselie (in EVERYTHING she does) coupled with the exasperation of Brody trying to "save" her really made me smile the entire way through. Their topsy turvy romance coupled with the intrigue was really fun to read. I am going to be doing a reread (listen) on release day because I already have this on my pre-order for Audible. Really I highly recommend picking this up! I don't think you will be disappointed!

Audio Thoughts

Narrated By Susan Duerden / Length: 10 hrs and 7 mins


Susan is really great at this series. I am not quite done with the re-listen but she nailed Roselie. You could just hear her bringing out the rebel in this character and the exasperation of Brody. It has been a fun listen. I am so glad I picked up the audiobook too!

Good book and narration.

This series has been fun to listen to from the beginning. I enjoyed this one too. I like a Historical Romance spy book for sure. Mystery and suspense is always a plus. Rosalie and Brody made a good match. The chemistry was real and genuine.

The story line and plot was good, interesting and well like I said there were spies.

As for the narration it was good. Susan Duerden has that sing song voice but she does the men's voices well and reads with emotion.

I will say for the record the best book in this series is by far The Viscount Who Lived Down The Lane. 100%!!!

What You Are Looking For Is In Front Of You

I love this story and the audible version. The story is good on its own but is even better if you have read or listened to the other stories in the series. The story is detailed and answers many questions left from previous books in the series. I love the chemistry between the main characters and their path to HEA

Just an ok story - not with the credit

I got this audiobook because Susan Duerden was the narrator. But even with Susan's narration, this book didn't hold my interest for long moments. I had to rewind often to get back on track. The story was convoluted and didn't have enough to make it a true mystery and the romance was just ok.
