Publisher's Summary

Frances Hadley has managed her family's estate for years. So why can't she request her own dowry? She'll have to go to London herself and knock some sense into the men interfering in her life. With the nonsense she's dealt with lately, though, there's no way she's going as a woman. A pair of breeches and a quick chop of her red curls, and she'll have much less to worry about....

Jack Valentine, third son of the famous Duchess of Love, is through being pursued by pushy young ladies. One particularly determined miss has run him out of his own house party. Luckily the inn has one bed left - Jack just has to share with a rather entertaining red-headed youth. Perhaps the two of them should ride to London together. It will make a pleasant escape from his mother's matchmaking melodrama!

WELL IT SURPRISED ME - I DIDN'T LIKE IT

As a historical romance lover I've listened to A LOT of books from this genre and it's rare but I just didn't feel the romance at all.

I think this will be the last SM book that I'll listen to as I disliked the heroine's attitude which was always moaning about everything and constantly comparing the hero to her Rake of a father which he didn't deserve, it was a bland, amateur, roll-your-eyes, dull romance listen that left out completely the wedding etc which should have been the best bit - or even an epilogue telling of children etc.

I didn't like the narrator which may have made a slight difference.

Worth a credit? Unfortunately, this was one I wasted - so NO.

Not as good as Bedding Lord Ned...

This story is a little more silly that the first books and I don't think the narrator did as smooth a job. I would like to read the next book though when it's available.
